Yesterday I had a look at what 2020 would bring by way of my horoscope for the year, however, unsurprisingly, I wasn’t left with a sense of purpose and direction for the coming 12 months. This probably has something to do with the fact that millennia old images of now long dead solar infernos have no possible way of determining a persons future, unless they are about to be engulfed in the supernova coming from the destruction of said solar inferno. But as I look for a few filler posts I thought I would give it a go. And then I remembered the Chinese Zodiac and I thought I would have a look at what the future holds for me based on the position animals came in a race to have tea with the Buddha (or possibly the Jade Emperor depending on which version you happen to be fond of ). So based on my birth year, (1989) or the year of the Earth Snake, here is what 2020 has in store for me.
The year of the earth Pig may have seemed like a very long 365 days for Snakes, but there were some accomplishments. The first 25 days of January represent an interim point when you need to decide what you want to carry into 2020, the year of the metal Rat. What works well for you? What could you tweak to make better? Whether the projects are old or yet to be started, this year they can grow, as can you. This good news comes courtesy of the element metal. Blend this ingredient with your own natural fire and you will possess the awesome ability to plan your life on your terms. The element creates a spark that ignites a fire that won’t go out anytime soon.
Let’s talk about defining moments. First, the year of the Rat begins a new twelve-year cycle spanning January 25, 2020, to February 11, 2021. The Cancer-Capricorn eclipse pattern is another benchmark this year. Two are key: the January 10 lunar eclipse in Cancer and the June 20 solar eclipse in Cancer. Everything, including the new Chinese cycle, focuses on positivity, expansive thinking, and outside-the-box energy.
You are a bold and confident Snake this year, leaving what may be a comfort zone and ready to embrace unknown destinations. Not to worry. You’re accompanied by your keen perception. Make friends with it, because it only gets better when you’re in touch with what is going on around you, and there will be lots of activity going on around you. Remain coiled to strike, for there will also be opportunities.
Harness your excess energy to take advantage of golden opportunities in the Year of the Metal Rat.
I don’t know why but I have a soft spot for the Chinese zodiac, I think it might have something to do with it describing people born in the Year of the Snake as charming, gregarious, introverted, generous, and smart, which modesty forbids from confirming this as an accurate description of my character. Although I will admit that being both gregarious and introverted does have its drawbacks.
But again this can apply to many millions of people so is really open to interpretation, it seems to be advocating mindfulness and a degree of introspection but again this could apply to anyone, but oh well here’s The Year Of The Metal Rat.
