Mugabe is popular and charming

TOP del.icio.us

Awhile ago Mugabe adopted a Look East policy in response to the Hostile West. As he’s just celebrated his birthday I thought I’d check what sign he is in the Chinese Zodiac. Born in 1924 makes him a Rat. There are some interesting predictions for him in 2010:

- The Year of the Tiger is going to be fast-paced for the Rat, which in itself does tend to make them slightly uncomfortable. But it is essential that they go with the flow and seize opportunities and take adventures – this year is going to be important for them. {Perhaps he’ll take advice from Zimbabwean Kubatana bloggers and retire to some fun in the sun}

- A lot of Rats may have dreamt of travel in 2009 but were unable to take trips either due to financial or work commitments. This year will be so different! Travel will feature strongly for many and if there is dream destination in mind, it may become a reality during 2010. {Maybe sanctions will be lifted after all}

- It is essential for all persons born under this sign to be extra thoughtful and caring throughout the year – an inadvertent remark or gesture could lead to discord with loved ones. {Who knew}

Major personality traits:
Rats are elegant, clever and prone to being distracted. The Rat is charming beyond words and throughout his undoubtedly long life he will always be popular and will have many friends. {As they say, don’t believe everything you read online}

Interesting Rat Facts:
Zodiac Stone: Garnet {Gosh, we thought it was diamonds}
Special Flower: Narcissus {No gray hair yet}
Best Hours: 11 pm -1 am {Guess that’s why the motorcade only fires up round about 10am}
