Every one of the 12 Chinese horoscope signs has its own special deity to help provide powerful guidance and support. This guardian deity helps in removing obstacles while attracting wealth luck and abundance. For the RAT, the deity is Avalokiteshvara, who is believed to possess amazing energy to help ward off disasters, ease one’s problems, and help manifest fortune and health. The deity will go to great lengths to protect and help guide the life of its charge, the RAT.
The embodiment of compassion among all the Buddhas, the Avalokiteshvara is perhaps one of the most beloved of Bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism. The Rat-born should carry this talisman in a wallet or purse to be blessed with an obstacle-free life of peace, without spiritual harm. It is said to make dreams come true, thanks to the Dependent Arising Mantra imprinted on the reverse side.
