This year is going to be one that affects every Chinese Zodiac sign heavily, yet differently.
This lunar year starts from January 25th, 2020 and ends on February 11th, 2021. Let’s take a look at how this Rat Year will work out for you when it comes to different aspects of your life.
Yang energy is strong and forceful. It is about stepping up to the plate and being the leader of our own lives. It is about soldiering ahead and conquering our fears in order to find victory.
The Rat is the first astrological sign in the Chinese zodiac. The Rat is considered to be clever, cunning, entrepreneurial, and good at getting its own way. As the first sign of the Chinese zodiac, this Rat year, 2020, symbolizes a brand new day, the dawn of a new beginning, and that initial feeling upon waking in the morning.
The year of the Rat is going to show us how important the first few moments of the morning are going to be. That is a sacred time, and we’re going to need its power this year.
All of these qualities combined make the year of the Yang Metal Rat a productive one and a time where we can create some new beginnings and positive fresh starts for ourselves.
