When a couple, the Horse man and the Rat woman can be very intense and passionate in bed, but not for a very long time. She may enjoy the adventures he’s suggesting and love him for being unpredictable, but not forever.

It would be a good idea for them to try and open a business together because he wouldn’t hesitate to take risks, whereas she would be the one organizing everything.

Very domineering, the Horse man wants his lady to be submissive with him. However, he likes spoiling his wife and acting foolishly when around her. For instance, he may suggest for them to go and travel the world with their backpacks when they are very old.

His young mind can keep their love burning. What he enjoys the most is being free and not having to explain other people why he’s doing things the way he does. She’s usually dreamy and optimistic when it comes to the future, he only lives in the present and doesn’t focus too much on the task at hand, so she could show him that life is easier when being a little bit more stable and concentrated.

They’re both serious about love, so it wouldn’t take them too long to turn themselves mad for one another. However, the thrill of a new beginning wold start to fade away as soon as she would see him as superficial and unable to commit, which is something she’s trying to avoid when choosing a partner.

The Horse man may grow to be very upset seeing that his lady wants to leave him, but this doesn’t necessarily mean he would focus on making things right, as he doesn’t know how to read between the lines, seeing he’s very honest and expects others to be the same, no matter how delicate a problem may be.

Instead, he may run into another woman’s arms, which would definitely convince the Rat woman to just leave him. Being very intelligent, the Horse man can find solutions to problems without thinking too much.

While others are struggling to understand what’s causing an issue, he’s the one to deal with it in no time. This is very much to the liking of the Rat woman because she would struggle to understand how he’s functioning, not to mention she loves a challenge.

To understand the other’s need for independence

The Horse man and the Rat woman seem to have what they need in order to keep their relationship entertaining and fun. They may not see things in life the same way, but this doesn’t mind they can’t make an effort to have things between them working.

She may not like that he’s restless and not at all stable, he will always be annoyed when she’s looking to start a fight just because she wants to have some fun her way.

She would never talk about her feelings, he would never stop discussing his. The Rat woman is ready to work hard for her relationship and has a lot of affection to offer, especially if she has a family with the man she loves.

On the other hand, the Horse man needs to be as physical as possible and to have his freedom protected. He may see her as selfish and uncaring, she thinks he’s possessive and impossible to reason with, so they may end up no longer finding each other attractive for their relationship to last longer.

In case the Rat woman and the Horse man still want to make things work, the Rat woman needs to understand that he needs his independence, not that he’s trying to avoid her, or that he doesn’t appreciate their relationship.

At the same time, he needs to understand that a couple involves two people and that he needs to make compromises from time to time. As a matter of fact, they both need to make some compromises because they’re not the most similar people in the world. They’re not opposites either, but they do have many differences.
