It’s The Year of the Rat

2020 is the year of the Rat in the Chinese Zodiac, starting from January 25th, 2020 and lasting until February 11th, 2021. For those born in the Year of the Rat you will be rewarded and seen.  Career success is assured.  Finances will boom!

But, as the saying goes, “Forewarned is forearmed,” so visit your doctor at the first sign of illness.  Relationships may be challenging. Work toward creating a loving, open environment with everyone. The year will have its issues, but the positive factors can turn it around.

The Rat is yang, representing the dawning of a new day. Unlike its rodent namesake, Rats are liked by all. They are sensitive to others, but have strong opinions. Communication skills need improvement.  Rats can be rude and off-putting, but their true default setting is actually kindness.

Rats know how to save money, but like their namesakes, they have a propensity to hoard, wasting money on bright shiny objects they don’t really need. 

Men born in the Year of the Rat are clever, adapting quickly to new environments. They are creatively opportunistic, great at “seizing the moment.”

Women born in the Year of the Rat are traditionalists. They are born organizers and place great value on the family, making life easy for their male counterparts. They accept responsibility and possess the skills to deliver.

The color blue, the number two, and the Lily flower are lucky for Rats.
