January 25th, 2020 launches the Chinese New Year of the Geng Zi or Metal Rat and it’s going to be an exciting roller coaster of ups and downs, twists and turns. If you crave challenges and an adrenaline rush, this is the year for you. I am excited to help you navigate using Animal Signs from BaZi Chinese Astrology.
Metal Rat combines water and metal which brings anxiety and emotional drama. To overcome the tears and depression, focus on your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Be more adaptable. Dig deeper to discover your true purpose. Improve your talents and offer more value in everything. Develop networking skills and connect with people who are worthwhile. Create a clear plan and work that plan.
For a personal forecast, we look to the Animal Signs in a birth chart. Each astrology sign comes with positive and negative yearly stars giving us a roadmap. Similar to the constellations in the sky, these stars trigger powerful Qi.
Note that everyone may have up to four different animal signs based on birth dates and times. See sidebar to determine your hour, month and year (day animal signs can only be calculated using a complex system by an expert.)
