Year of the Rat - good for the Germans?

I treat all forms of astrology with the same disdain, but some recently harvested nuggets on the year of the rat are too good not to share:

Firstly China Daily calls it Year of the Mouse rather than Rat, with the symbol for both being the same, apparently.

Above and beyond that, apparently Germany, Austria, Sweden, the Netherlands, Brazil, Colombia and the US of A are rat, erm, mouse countries. Whether this stems from traits or from dates of birth (so to speak) is not made clear.

Anyway, supposedly they suffer from being the following: "Controlling, obstinate, resentful, lacks-a-sense-of-humor, manipulative, cruel, vengeful, power-driven, critical, possessive, stingy, bossy, fickle, defensive" (and I'm not saying a *mumbling* word).

On the upside, our Teutonic friends etc are supposedly "Meticulous, intelligent, shrewd, compassionate, charismatic, charming, ambitious, practical, industrious, honest, eloquent, versatile, familial, creative, hard-working, neat, organized, lovers of music, loving".

We subjects of Her Majesty turn out to be ruled by a dragon lady, for the UK is a Dragon country. Along with Denmark and Bulgaria..... Still,we are compatible with our rodent chums, apparently.
