Year of the Rat 2020

The Year of the Rat is good because you can make a profit and save money for the years to come. The global economy is projected to do well in Rat years. There is more speculation than usual about stock exchanges. However, you shouldn't take any unnecessary risks. It will be a more peaceful year than a Dragon year or a Tiger year, for example.

The nature of the Rat

The Rat is an intelligent and curious being. It is communicative and enjoys socializing. For a small rodent that looks cute, it can bite hard - perhaps it is underestimated because of its size. Those born in the Year of the Rat know how to persevere and reach their goals. The Rat is also associated with business acumen and financial security.

Material growth is essential for the Rat, which means that this year you could make a profit or get to the bottom of what has been getting in your way. Where do you need to save more? What changes do you need to make to achieve your goals?

The Rat teaches people how important it is to save and to make sure that everyone's basic needs are covered. This year is ideal for laying the essential building blocks to secure your financial future. However, you should avoid significant risks.

The Rat enjoys company. It is a very social animal, and so this year, you will have an increased desire to be in the company and security of a group. A good network is critical for the Rat, so it is possible that the theme of communication will be very relevant in society this year. 

The Rat has a hard-working, survivor mentality, and its intelligence helps it find its way around. It can be very combative. The Metal Rat can also be emotional and impulsive, and it cares a lot about success.

The Rat always seeks variety in career life. Work needs to be exciting; there must be something new to learn. Professions that are very routine have the potential to create conflict this year, as the energy of the Rat calls us to find adventure if professional life is too quiet.

On a positive note, the Rat is able to break out of old patterns and bring change and new ideas into everyday working life. If this is accepted, employers and employees alike can benefit greatly. Financial matters are essential in the year of the Rat, as is career.

Chinese Horoscope for 2020

Rat - A good year

The Year of the Rat is very positive for people born under this sign. They can grow beyond just themselves, recognize their destiny and responsibility, and fight consciously for a better way of living.

Rat people will also get together with peers. They will have good conversation and cultivate friendly relationships. Rat people can make many friends in the new year and expand their network. They can also reach financial success if they invest wisely. But be careful not to get too arrogant because Rats could also face their inner shadow side at this time.

Tiger - A thirst for adventure and variety

The tiger, like the Rat, loves variety. Tigers have a gripping desire for adventure, and may depart from a routine profession or look for new ways to deal with it.

Tigers will prevail with strength and courage. Financial success could be the result of their efforts. The Tiger can also be careless sometimes, which Rats do not particularly like. Tigers may need to react a little more carefully to change and should not take as many risks as usual.

Rabbit - From sunny to cloudy

For the Rabbits, this is a mediocre year. Setbacks may occur. The good-natured and gentle Rabbits don't like quarrels, and it's very possible that arguments could break out in the Year of the Rat for futile reasons.

Rabbits are easily overwhelmed by the combative nature of the Rat, as they are infected by this type of energy. Rabbits tend to stay in the background, offer support to others, and show them love and acceptance. With this approach, the Rabbit can bring peace and inner security to many people. The Rabbit can also draw attention to itself through the fine arts. Rabbits speak through music and expression to reach people's hearts.

In 2020, Rats, Dragons and Oxen are the most successful!

Dragon - Energy and success

The power of the Metal Rat supports the qualities of the Dragon very strongly. Dragons are dominant and want success. They see themselves at the top, and they won't let anything stop them.

This year may awaken the inner fighter in you. Because the Dragon represents luck and fortune, these people may be very financially successful. The energy of the Dragon and the Rat complement each other at this time. Dragons also have luck in social settings. They like to contribute to a larger whole, but are also interested in their own fame and success. The Dragons may be recognized through their community work, as they hope to stand out as benefactors.

Snake - Time to move

This year, the Snakes are a little on edge. They may perceive changes in the world as disruptive, and they are sensitive to discord around them, which may cause them to withdraw and wait. This will not be an easy situation for them to handle.

The energy of the Rat encourages us to make a contribution, solve ongoing communication issues, and resolve conflicts. Foresight and prudence are needed at this time. Snakes find peace in following paths that stem from a central force. Their observant nature allows them to assess situations thoroughly and offer advice. Behind closed doors, Snakes are proactive about solving communication problems and facing their issues.

The best awaits at the end of this year - Snakes could find a new love or have exceptional luck.

Horse - Patience and commitment

This sign should be cautious this year. Horses are often successful and wealthy because they know how to invest and thrive professionally. Thus, this year could possibly bring in more success because the Metal Rat is good with finances and investments. However, Horses can be impatient, so it might feel like success is taking a while because it can't happen fast enough. Sometimes people with this sign lack the necessary stamina after starting an important project. This could result in deals falling through or ideas never coming to fruition due to a lack of patience. Horses need freedom and space around them. If a situation gets too complicated, Horses prefer not to get involved. The Rat, however, reminds the Horse of its social obligations. Running away is not always the best solution. Excellent communication and stimulating conversation may convince the shy Horses to stay put for a while.

But it won't be easy for either side! Horses may face a moral dilemma this year. Friends and family are important, but Horses care more about their own interests, as this sign does not usually form deep bonds. But the social Rat may help with this if Horses are ready for it. It could be a somewhat confusing year for the Horses, since the Rat keeps confronting them to face their inner shadows.

Goat (or sheep) - Survival skills

The fair-minded Goat will have a tough time dealing with the combative nature of the Rat this year. Goats are not interested in profit and financial success, though they do enjoy luxury and a safe home environment, along with people that they can take care of. The Rat's energy can gnaw at their gentle nature, which leaves the Goats feeling irritated. They get overwhelmed with the world's roughness and find refuge in their beautiful artistry. The year of the Rat will open the eyes of the Goats and clearly show them that it is time to use their skills for the benefit of everyone.

With grace and kindness, the Goats open people's hearts and eyes. However, it will be a great challenge for them to go out and stand up for a common cause.

Monkey - Talent

Monkeys are smart and astute. They apply themselves skillfully and have lots of ambition to succeed. The Rat strengthens their natural talents.

Monkeys like to have fun: they want to celebrate, be a part of society, and are always ready to expand their knowledge. Monkeys are eager to learn and can then use their knowledge to profit. In the year of the Metal Rat, Monkey people should have many good conversations, especially regarding finances. Because Monkeys don't usually like to share, they might wish for solo success, though they don't need to be stingy. The Rat makes the Monkeys aware of any potentially selfish behavior. Don't forget to make sure that family and friends are taken care of.

Monkeys become aware of themselves in the Year of the Rat. They need to organize themselves so that they can be more generous with others All in all, the Year of the Rat seems to be very supportive for the Monkeys. They should be careful to make the right decisions with their finances.

Rooster - Focus less

The proud Roosters love to perform. They like to be the center of attention and love to have good conversations - although, of course, they usually want to talk about themselves. If they catch listeners, they can quickly pull them in with their enchanting presence.

The Rat helps them to have good conversation because communication is a vital quality of the Rat. But the exchange can be somewhat one-sided because Roosters prefer to talk about themselves. Their interlocutors might roll their eyes at them and confront them directly this year about their self-absorbed nature. This offends the proud Roosters very much. Rooster people do not always react positively to honest criticism, so they can get easily offended.

Strategic thinking very advantageous this year. The Rat reminds them to be strategic in both financial and societal matters. This year will determine whether the proud Rooster is ready.

Dog - Save up

Dog - Saving is the order of the day

The loyal Dog is not interested in power and fame. People with this sign are most comfortable in social professions where they can serve and help others. They might shake their head at others who reach for fame and want to be the center of attention this year. They simply don't care about investing money or financial matters in general, and there is little that even the clever Rat can do. Dogs should save as much as possible this year, so stock up.

When it comes to the social side of life, the Dogs are in the thick of it. When it comes to their work, they are committed to the pack. If they start on one side, they most likely will stay there. Sometimes they tend to see things a little too black and white, and they will defend their point of view with bite and strength. So, be careful of heavy bickering - the Dogs could show their teeth, and the Rat might snap back. Thus, conflicts may be on the horizon. It is important not to lose sight of the bigger picture so that there are no arguments.

Pig - Finances stagnate

Friendly, warm, and the life of every party - that's the Pig. A true pal who shares everything. But when change is loose, there is no distinction between whose money is whose. The energy of the Rat is very compatible with the Pig, who cheerfully brings life into their community and make many people laugh. But this has little to do with finances. They may prioritize spending money over earning money, which could put them in a difficult situation and cause them a lot of stress this year. Suddenly, Pigs have to pull themselves together. Finances stagnate, and they have to see a project through until the end. Fun enough, right?

If the Pigs find something that particularly appeals to them, they should go with it. The Rat will also help get them in the right place. Pigs receive clarity and strength from the Rat energy. If they leverage it to their advantage, Pigs can do a lot, but they need a lot of willpower to stay focused on their work.

Ox - A great year

The Ox is committed to serving the common good, which makes the Rat and the Ox a perfect team. The Ox shares the similar goals in life with the Rat - both value material security and a cozy home life. This year in particular, the Ox can enjoy spending time with family and will have positive experiences with relatives and partners.

Oxen take responsibility for their life and the life of all living things on this earth. They want to experience life and peacefully coexist. Family always remains important to Oxen, even when they make new friends and enter new social circles. The gentle giant enjoys calmness and needs a quiet environment. Harmony is fundamental for the Ox. If the Rat gets too snappy, the Ox doesn't like it. Oxen might try to arbitrate and get themselves caught in the middle.
