On the 4th of February 2020 (for the solar term used in Astrology: lunar starts on the 25th of January), we will start a new cycle with the year of the Yang Metal Rat. A Chinese year is always made of a mix of energy: one on the surface called the Stem, and one deeper called the Branch. This year the Stem is made of Yang Metal and the branch is the Rat, that contains Yin Water. The Yang Metal Rat year therefore brings us a mix of Metal and Water that going to affects each of the 12 signs very differently.This year will not be an easy one for the world, but each sign will fare very differently under this influences. As usual we start the wheel of horoscope with the Rat sign,that will be in his year. Is that a good thing, or a wake up call? Let  see all of this in details.

The Rat’s love life in 2020, year of the Rat.

The Rat will be in its year, and it’s always a double-edge sword. For those of you whom have been in a relationship for years, it is the time to pause and see what works and what doesn’t. If a crisis was looming over your couple (or throuple, or more if you are polyamory!), it will most likely come out during this year of the Rat. The thing is, the energy forces you to look into your behaviour and possible mistake, and your partner(s) will certainly point them out. If however you have a stable relationship, the year will still send you in an introspective mode, but most likely without the crisis. It all depends of the rest of your Bazi chart…

What about the Rat whom happen to still be single? The year of your sign can be a good year to meet. In fact, it can send your way  “like-minded spirits” and someone whom is on the same wavelength. This mirroring with the energy of the year works even better for LGBT people, whom could meet a compatible partner this year. The true story for love is however mostly told by your day of birth, and which animal you have in this Pillar. If you are born under the sign of the Rat and also have a Rat, Monkey, Dragon,  Ox or even Horse in your day of birth: bingo, you are likely to meet. If however you have another sign in your day of birth, friendships with or without benefits could occur rather than a love story…While the year brings your own sign in the equation, it also lacks your “spouse element” (the Yang Fire), which can means that any relation formed in 2020 will be loose or short lived if the compatibility is not absolute.

Another possible version is that you decide to consciously work on your psyche and decide that you are not ready for a new relationship, as long as you don’t feel better in your own shoes. In that case, this year 2020 is ideal for this introspection.

The Rat’s work and money in 2020, year of the Rat.

Like last year, there are no money sign for you during this year. Your money sign would also be represented by the Fire, that is missing from the energy of the year. There is however some support offered by the Yang Metal, the Stem of the year, which is one of your ressource Element.  The mix of influences, with the Yang Metal and the Rat of the year, means that it is a time when you are going to be evaluated and judged for your work up to now. With the support of your ressource Element, you can gain advancement or at least secure your place for a longer time here. But without your money Element in sight, it might not translate into much financial gain yet. If you are placed in a new position, you’ll have to prove your worth before you see a substantial pay raise…

For most Rats, the year will ask you what you really want to do with your career. Like with relationship, you could have a bit of a crisis if you are not aligned with your higher purpose and true calling. The return of your sign means that you have achieved a 12 years cycle, and it’s time to survey what has happened and where you are in your career. The support of the Metal Element will both push you for the necessary changes, and give you some support if you are ready to change career completely. Most natives of the sign will therefore see some evolution in their career, with more support coming your way in 2021, year of the Ox. My advise is to dare to go for a change if you are not yet following your true calling…

The Rat’s health and evolution in 2020, year of the Rat.

It’s a persistent myth that being in “your sign’s year” is a good thing. It is rather a karmic aspect: a mirroring year that shows the state of your life, ask you to see how far you’ve gone (or how deep your are stuck), and think about the new cycle starting now. It is therefore a year that can feel heavy on your mental health: especially if you are not ready to do your introspection. In that case, the year and the Universe will keep poking you until your lessons are expressed louder and louder. It is best for you to entirely embrace the process and better yourself through either: psychoanalysis, shamanic practice, body and mind workshop, spiritual retreat…It is also a time when your subconscious becomes stronger and will give you message through vivid dreams. See what they have to tell you…

Body wise, it is a year to work on your posture and back. Any problems that you have overlooked in the past years are likely to now want to be heard and will need to be addressed. Luckily you get some support from this year and can therefore find solutions: but like with your mental health, please embrace the process rather than procrastinate. That will help you to start this new 12 years cycle with the right energy.

Good or bad, it’s all a question of adapting. Even during a stormy weather, any sign can have a great year. The key is to know what is coming for you, prepare and adapt.
