The Metal Rat Year has just begun on February 4th, based on the Solar Calendar.
January starts off with a bang with so many clients requesting updates to prepare for the year ahead, which keeps me working round the clock until now. So, finally have a breather to put my thoughts together for this month’s newsletter, hope you enjoy.
Starting off with the Tiger month, it begins with a roar. Tigers are known for their fierceness and protective nature. They have a stubborn streak and when teamed up with the Earth energy this month as well, only strengthens that resolve. On the other hand this is a month for exhibiting kindness, and getting the job done as Tigers have an amazing strength to push forward and the Earth adds to this with its groundedness and logical thinking. No better time to put your plans into motion for what lies ahead this year.
Since this is the first month of the New Year let me give you some insights into the energies for the year 2020. Being a Metal Rat year there is a focus on justice, and we can expect upheavals with highs and lows prevailing. Imagine a Rat in armor, ready to do battle. Yes, we will be tested, as you are already seeing with events around the world and here in America. Be ready for the unexpected, it’s a rollercoaster ride ahead, everything from stagnation, to steadiness, to unexpected changes, both good and unwelcoming. In business, this year the Earth element is exhibiting its full strength, and can expect any businesses related to construction, real estate, mining, and insurance to prosper. On the other hand businesses that will face a steep challenge are tourism, travel, shipping, and most affected is the aviation industries, as we already see happening.
How to thrive this year, in particular we can expect that help is on the way. Breathe slowly, step back and determine how you can play a proactive role in being part of the solution. Find ways to be helpful to others, to bring us together. Determine commonalities that transcend the polarized viewpoints that are so prevalent.
How can we create unity? What are the lessons to be learned, to find acceptance in who we are being. Not just for self, but also for the greater good. Trust that people and solutions show up. What you think and believe is what persists. This is a year where change is the prevailing course. Be honest and take a close look into your self. Where are our old conditionings that keep us small showing up, and how can I truly make a change to embrace my greatness. This is a warrior year, face your fears. I know this has been said over and over in recent years, but we are truly at the tipping point. The Metal Rat year is a powerful time; unrest is part of this energy, as this is often what is needed to bring about real change. Keep your eyes open, have an action plan ready to embrace the opportunities, and expect a year filled with excitement and challenge. Charge ahead in the spirit of love and unity ….
