2020 will be a year of new beginnings for those born in the year of the Rat. As the next cycle of the Chinese Zodiac begins, Rats should be open-minded to new opportunities and fresh starts in life. Use this time to reflect on your achievements in life so far: celebrate what you already have, while also identifying areas for growth.
By increasing social activity this year, Rats are likely to find themselves with new friends, potential lovers and stronger relationships at work. Existing relationships - particularly with family members - will also have the chance to be renewed and strengthened.
Rats should not shy away from the possibility of significant change at work in 2020. Despite what is set to be a very lucky and prosperous year, successes will no doubt be met with obstacles along the way. Relish these opportunities to be challenged, listen to the advice of colleagues and use the Rat’s innate wisdom and creative mind to approach hardship with a pragmatic mind. Take time and care in making big decisions, such as any professional changes or new investments, and use your natural leadership skills and care for others to make the Year of the Rat a success for all of those around you.
For the Ox, 2020 will mark a significant year of personal development. Feeling more comfortable in your own skin, the Ox will spend more time hatching new plans and less time worrying about how they are perceived by others. Take delight in this newfound ease and use this extra time to learn new skills and to listen to the concerns of others.
This newfound confidence will also have repercussions on your love life, either in strengthening existing relationships or embarking on new ones. Be eager and active in romantic pursuits but take care in choosing a compatible companion.
At work, your growing confidence will enhance your innovative approach to business, which will be met with admiration from your colleagues and further opportunities for personal development, which must be seized. For the Ox, 2020 could be a year of saving money and avoiding unnecessary expenses if you embrace the diligence and ambition needed to do so. Rejoice in your self-confidence, be grateful for the joy that life brings and be humble in your achievements, or you might find your luck starts to run out.
The Tiger is the most passionate and courageous of the Zodiacs. In order to harness the successes that 2020 will bring, the Tiger must continue to have faith in their decision making and resist self-doubt.
Although the Tiger thrives under pressure, it is crucial that the Year of the Rat includes sufficient time for self-care and relaxation, or the Tiger risks burning out before the year is done. Impulsive and ruthless at times, the Tiger should use 2020 to nurture existing relationships and rekindle ones lost.
By learning to manage their frustration in the face of adversity, the Tiger will be rewarded with newfound wisdom and serenity in 2020, which will have positive repercussions on your working life. Try to resist letting your determination overshadow rational thought; be careful in career decisions and accept the support offered to you by others, particularly by mentors who have your best interests at heart.
In terms of romantic relationships, the Tiger would do well to let go of their naturally possessive nature and instead embrace trusting in others. If achieved, this shift in mindset will result in a new sense of calm and confidence - in both the self and in those around them - which will make for a happy and prosperous 2020.
In 2020, the Rabbit should prioritise a positive outlook on life above anything else. This year will be marked by equal amounts of luck and fortune as well as challenging obstacles. For this reason, it would be wise for the Rabbit to adopt a well-balanced lifestyle at the beginning of the year, in order to prepare for the twists and turns that 2020 might bring.
While work should continue on a steady trajectory, the Rabbit should embrace changes in personal relationships. New friends and mentors will appear when least expected and these support systems should be used during challenging times.
By reconnecting with nature, as well as oneself, 2020 for the Rabbit will be a key year for self-reflection and personal development. By socialising with people from all walks of life, the Rabbit will discover a newfound appreciation for people who are strikingly different from themselves, marking 2020 as a year for celebrating the variety of life. If the Rabbit is already in a romantic relationship, or just beginning one, be sure to show your appreciation and admiration for that person, and in turn, you will be blessed with lovers who truly care for you and your wellbeing.
