It is interesting that they can get along well with people born in the year of the snake, because their sanguineness and undaunt-edness and the latter's shrewdness and slipperiness complement each other. People born in the year of the ox also welcome their liveliness because it animates their dull lives, and those born in the year of the dragon like to learn from their far-sighted ambition.

It is difficult for them to have close relations with people born in the year of the rabbit, for their contentiousness will often violate the latter, though they are usually kind-hearted and concessive.

When necessary, they can cooperate with each other. But if there is a marriage between them, it is doomed to failure.
