In Chinese Astrology, the year of Rat for 2020 is a fresh beginning of a 12-year cycle. It is an important opportunity for a life reset.  Some advice for this new year to take to heart:

– Avoid idleness and hesitation when it comes to managing your finances.

– 2020 is all about helping oneself before worrying about others’ business. Make it a priority to resolve your own problems.

– Prevarication is a costly mistake, especially this year. Ambition and strategy are emphasized in the year of Metal Rat 2020.

– It is a period during which your investments in important projects of the past year will bear lucrative fruit in this critical first year of the 12-year cycle and will set the right tone for coming years of the cycle.

– It will require patience and steadfast determination to maximize your well-deserved success from your entrepreneurial endeavors.

– There could be much movement this year both with respect to job and home.

– The conflicting aspects of the Metal Rat year mean you can expect, variously, times alone and other times with much social activity. This is due to the solitary nature of the metal element, along with the gregarious nature of the rat.
