WELCOME TO THE YEAR OF THE METAL RAT.
In Chinese astrology, not only is every year associated with one of the twelve zodiac signs (rat, buffalo, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, pig) but also with one of five elements: Metal, wood, water, fire and earth. The year 2020 meets the element metal, i. e. since 25th January we are in the year of the metal rat.
According to Chinese understanding, the rat embodies intelligence, ambition, curiosity and drive for implementation. The year 2020 offers many good opportunities for those who take all the rat’s admirable characteristics as an example.
