Another factor which affects an individual’s personality is the sun sign. The sun signs are better known as the Western zodiac, and they parallel the Chinese lunar signs. Many of us know what our Western zodiac sign is, take a look below to see how they influence the sign of the Rat.

.

 

ARIES: 21 March to 19 April
Fire + Positive Water = Aries Rat

The Aries Rat is the typical conflicting East meets West animal sign. The Rat is headstrong whereas the Aries lacks perseverance – thankfully, they balance each other out! Well liked by others, the Aries Rat is always present, vivacious and stable. You are always in control of your life, however you enjoy changes and surprises. You despise repetition and routine, and would prefer to always be on the move than to be stuck behind a desk. When excited, you may have the tendency to rush into things – this is especially true in the realm of love.

.

 

TAURUS: 20 April to 20 May
Earth + Positive Water = Taurean Rat

The Taurean Rat is persuasive, practical and diversely knowledgeable. You enjoy relishing information,whether it be historical or current. You hold yourself highly, but only because you can! You are both physically-able and intellectually strong. You enjoy telling jokes at gatherings and can be a great companion due to your inexhaustible conversational topics. Able to make money easily and non-materialistic, you are less trusting of people. You will see longer-lasting relationships in your mature age. This is unless you choose to be less flirtatious growing up.

.

 

GEMINI: 21 May to 21 June
Air + Positive Water = Gemini Rat

The Gemini Rat is eloquent and enjoys a bit of banter. You harness your oratorial skills and are continuously bursting with ideas. You don’t take yourself too seriously, and don’t expect others too either. You are constantly exciting to be in company with, but your ever-changing interests will cause you to be rather unreliable, over a period of time. Your attention span is short and you will soon find yourself spread out too thinly over too many areas. Intelligence may be your strength, but also your weakness. Coupled with your ego and superficiality, you will seek different company – and not every one likes a quick-mouthed smarty-pants, do we?

.

 

CANCER: 22 June to 21 July
Water + Positive Water = Cancerian Rat

The Cancerian Rat is a realist, but lightens up their life with their love for humour. You are intuitive, secretive and may at times be rather moody. You will steer your life away from people or situations that unnecessarily inconveniences you, however you desire family closeness and will go to the ends of the earth for it. It’s not easy to gain the Cancerian Rat’s trust; you may also find it difficult to love entirely and whole-heartedly – a little cautious string will always hold you back. Most relaxed when in familiar surroundings, you need a stable home to feel complete.

.

 

LEO: 22 July to 21 August
Fire + Positive Water = Leo Rat

The Leo Rat is always out to get the best in their life. You are highly gifted, which perfectly complements your interest in everything! You are extravagant, aristocratic and very influential. You enjoy your freedom and despite your trusting nature, you will always have one fixed eye on your finances. Your overall charisma will attract those around you. Charming, you are able to deliver humour to suit your surroundings. Preferring shorter engagements in your career, you need an active personal relationship to keep your love life alive.

.

 

VIRGO: 22 August to 22 September
Earth + Positive Water = Virgo Rat

The Virgo Rat is not one that can let themselves loose and run wild. You are constantly in control over yourself, and may steer towards being a perfectionist. You explore every possible option before taking a step in any direction. It may just be a cruel coincidence that your social life will seem to be rather unstable. You are intelligent and being a hardworking individual, you will fare well in your chosen careers. Your innovativeness and business acumen will provide you with limitless capabilities. If you can only keep your sharp tongue and critical perspective in check, you will make a good and attentive partner.

.

 

LIBRA: 23 September to 22 October
Air + Positive Water = Libran Rat

Faithfulness and effortlessly successful generally sums up a Libran Rat. You are exciting, charming and interesting to be with. Bubbly as you may be, you have the tendency to lose interest fast. This spills over into your professional life, and you will constantly seek for greener pastures. On the bright side, you make for the bests purchasers as you are constantly on the look-out for the best bargains! You enjoy intimate company and are rarely seen without.

.

 

SCORPIO: 23 October to 21 November
Water + Positive Water = Scorpio Rat

The Scorpio Rat is highly intelligent and motivated. You are a go-getter and you know what you want. You are a silent and deep thinker and will not hesitate to crush your enemies if need be. Words are your strength and teamed with hard work and a scheming mind, you can bring yourself to places others didn’t think possible. You relish efficiency and effectiveness in all aspects of your life, and will easily garner support wherever you are. Scorpio Rats make good writers, and perhaps being naturally critical may fare to be a good thing.

.

 

SAGITTARIUS: 22 November to 21 December
Fire + Positive Water = Sagittarian Rat

The Sagittarian Rat exudes a light-hearted, playful and youthful charm. This Rat will be overly enthusiastic; however prone to lethargy. You are easily bored and will constantly search for change: scenery, job and/or company. You hold steady in a quagmire, but you will flare if angered. As social people, you enjoy the company of many but fear being deceived by others. This conflicts with your trusting nature.

.

 

CAPRICORN: 22 December to 20 January
Earth + Positive Water = Capricorn Rat

The Capricorn Rat is a stable and resourceful person that is also very sociable. You are known to be analytical in your thinking and may venture into careers that require research or critical thinking. Your resourcefulness may spill over into your ability to pull social strings for professional favours. You are wise and careful, less adventurous than others and prefer long-lasting relationships that require a level of faithfulness a Capricorn Rat has. Do not attempt to deceive the Capricorn Rat, their quick intelligence will catch others out.

.

 

AQUARIUS: 21 January to 19 February
Air + Positive Water = Aquarian Rat

The Aquarius Rat is a drifter and a dreamer. You value love highly, hold your friendships dear to heart, but do not favour the idea of commitment. You are expressive, and more artistic than analytic. Fairing well in careers such as journalism or public relations, you will not pursue any professional job for financial-related motives but because of the constant-changing nature of the job. You are impatient and talkative. You do not hold grudges and may at times be surprisingly extravagant.

.

 

PISCES: 20 February to 20 March
Water + Positive Water = Piscean Rat

The Pisces Rat is as unpredictable as the British weather. You are able to demonstrate your creativity easily and may fare to be good at words, however it is rare to see a Pisces Rat commit to anything or to anyone. You are less aggressive and selfish than the other Rats, but your life is so unpredictable that you might end up being an angry miser – no one knows, not even the Pisces Rat! Despite the fact that you lead a turbulent life, you always manage to get both feet back on the ground. Luck and support is on your side. A word of caution – instability in your personal life also affects your instability in relationships. Unions may be short, shorter than desired.

    Dear Eli Levine, It is essential to have a qualified teacher. It would be good to read up more and investigate which teacher suits your aptitude. There is many teachings on youtube also. Perhaps you can read online and watch youtube videos to decide further. I wish you luck as your wish is beneficial. Tsem Rinpoche

    What is interesting is when we learn the dharma and we don’t consistently apply it we wonder why we don’t change and after a few years feel disheartened? Change is what will motivate us to reach higher achievements within dharma. It empowers us to want to achieve more as we can see results within our mind. But if we never apply consistently, contrary to feeling motivated, we will be demotivated to see our minds still the same or sometimes even creeping backwards. Blaming others for our state of mind might seem plausible in the beginning, but to a senior seasoned practitioner it does not make sense. From the side of Dharma it is totally illogical to blame others as that would negate the existence of self created karma, results and imprints. Then everything in samsara is not one’s fault would be the illogical conclusion. Therefore we will again eventually falsely conclude there is no need for enlightenment and hence there are no Buddhas to even begin with. That is the wrong path to stray towards. Taking responsibility and especially applying the teachings of Buddha to ourselves is extremely important from the beginning, middle and end. ~Tsem Rinpoche

    Hello everyone! I am missing a teacher in my life and have had to learn quite haphazardly on my own and without much apparent benefit. I would like to spread dharma practice (not Buddhism, specifically) to government practice and societies as a whole. I have no idea where or how to start, although I have been refining my thoughts on the practice for about 4.5 years now.

    Dear Jim Yeh, What a wonderful update. Please for your next retreat, schedule it for three days and just do 5,000 migtseymas at a time. 10k is too much for a first timer alone. :) But I am happy for you. Keep it up and next time dedicate it for your family, your attainments and all beings in samsara’s enlightenment. Keep up the updates. Thank you. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I hope this message finds Your Eminence in the best of health.

    I am writing to let Rinpoche know that I have just completed a Tsongkhapa retreat (10,000 Migtsemas) and have dedicated it to Rinpoche’s long life and my family.

    This was my first retreat ever and honestly, It was a very gruelling experience for both body and mind. In hindsight, I should have planned for a 3 day retreat instead of completing it in 2 days. However, this experience has taught me much and the retreat has re-energized my beliefs and practice (which I seriously needed)

    With folded hands & warmest regards,
    Jim

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

The highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her. Thanks to mother gorilla's kind heart. -From FB (Please always be kind to animal. Never hurt them, kill them or eat them. Tsem Rinpoche)

Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    The appreciation shown here is so deep and touching.
    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche
