The Year of the White Metal Rat will be an interesting one. It will be auspicious and prosperous for many people. Why?
Well, first let’s understand the characteristics of the Rat and people born in the Year of the Rat. Second, let’s envision how it will play out in today’s world. Finally, let’s see how the Year of the Rat can benefit us.
The Rat is the first of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, so 2020 is the time of new beginnings. It’s the beginning of a 12-year cycle, the beginning of a new decade in Western calendars, and the beginning of a 60-year cycle in the Chinese system. It’s a year of new beginnings on many levels.
Characteristics of the Rat
The rat is a ground or Earth animal. It loves to run around on the ground. It’s independent and cannot be kept in a box. It will find a way out. It loves rich foods like nuts and cheese. It is a pack animal, so it loves doing things to help its family, by warning of danger, or by leading the way to a great food source.
People born in the Year of the Rat are independent and think outside the box. They come up with creative and innovative solutions to problems in life. They love systems and foundations, not just superficial changes, and approach problem-solving at a foundational level. Rat people love helping their family and work in community. Even though they are independent, family is super-important to them. They love opulence, fine jewelry, quality in food, clothing, their homes,
and in personal care products.
Changes in the World
So, in the Year of the Metal Rat, many people will come up with innovative solutions to problems of the world, especially in the area of IT and futuristic
technology. Foundational changes are predicted to happen. Because changes will take place at the foundation, world leaders who are not forward-thinking or
in tune with the spirit of this Day and Age, will lose their power. Some will be toppled by their own people, others will simply step down. Because of the collaborative nature of the Rat, people will collaborate more together to create positive changes. Because the rat is very logical and loves to see justice done,
abuses will have consequences, and not simply emotional protests that don’t lead to action or changes.
How can The Year of the Metal Rat benefit you?
The Year of the Metal Rat can benefit you in many ways, but I will mention three of them. First, in the area of health, second in the area of financial flow, and third, in the area of collaboration with others.
First, because the rat energy focuses on diet and nutrition, more and more people will recognize the value of a vegetarian or vegan diet. If you’re having health challenges, this would be a good year to try Eastern approaches to health, such as acupuncture or herbal remedies, as these will be more accepted this year.
Second, because of the innovative and creative energy of the rat, many people will receive inspiration to create new solutions in the areas of IT, technology and water. Starting businesses in these areas would be a good idea, if you are inclined to become a business owner. Knowing where to place your Feng Shui activations, will increase the flow of finances during the Year of the Metal Rat.
You can wear the color white, to activate the metal energy this year.
Third, this is a good year to engage in collaborative activities such as networking, Masterminds, partnerships, and support groups. These are always a good idea for business owners, but this year, the energy is much stronger and will lead to more fruitful results. For others, 2020 will be a good time to tie the knot, and sign those legal papers.
Knowing your personal energy number can also help you in many ways.
