the year of the rat in the Chinese zodiac

On January 25, 2020 began the Year of the Rat. Although the coronavirus has destroyed the Chinese fasting for the new year’s entry, the Chinese cannot but mark the sacred calendar dates they have been observing for 4,000 years.

Last year was the year of the Earth Pig, this year is the year of the Metal Rat

The establishment of the Chinese calendar took into account the dates for the new moon and the position of the sun. If in our calendar, the Gregorian calendar, where each month bears a name, the Chinese calendar months are numbered. The years, on the other hand, are under the sign of one of the five elements: water, earth, fire, metal and wood. In the Orient it is known that the 12 animals that give the name of the year cyclically have the capacity to endow with the characteristics born the person born in that year.

Astrologers say this year will be a year of plenty, opportunities and financial speculation. It is a good year for those who want to evolve and learn new things or start new businesses. It is a lucky year for all the zodiacs. The children who will be born under this sign will be quiet and melancholy but with a great capacity to handle difficult situations, which will bring them great success later in life.

The Chinese say that the rat is associated with prosperity and luck, so it seems that 2020 will be a year when the trials will not be indelible.

You are under the sign of the rat if you were born in the year: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020 and 2032.

The year of the Metal Rat will end on February 12, 2021, when it will enter the year of the Metal Bull.
