Chinese Animal Predictions for 2020. Year of the Yang Metal Rat (Geng Zi)
© Written by Michael Hanna 2019
“Positive thoughts are like good
software, they help us to perform to the best of our abilities, believe
positively that 2020 will be one of your best years yet.”
Are you prepared for 2020?
Chinese New Year of the Yang metal Rat 2020 and this begins a new cycle of the twelve Chinese Zodiac animals, and usually this indicates great opportunities and growth in 2020 and full of surprises, some good, some not so good and exceptional Feng Shui cures and enhancers are needed in 2020.
The world we live in is changing very fast in more ways than one, and we cannot predict everything with Feng Shui and Chinese astrology as we as a human race are dramatically changing weather conditions with the way we are living our life, and last year I predicted (not that hard to do) that there will be changes in the weather and this year even more to come, and this will be combined with unrest the world all over especially in southeast Asia and the middle east although what will happen I have no idea, but there will be unrest which can amount to civil wars or a revolution and the last Geng Zi year we had sixty years ago (1960) saw the USA enter the Vietnam war and the IRA started its fight again with the British, and sadly in 2020 we will see instability in the world all over and world markets, but there will be recovery towards the end of 2020, we could see values in property, fuels, stocks and shares and most commodities fall to a lower level.
Sadly we will continue to see instability in the world markets although there will be recovery towards the end of the year, we could see values in property, fuels, stocks and shares and most commodities fall to a lower level, which in my humble opinion is good for our children and grandchildren but enough politics from me.
Please take care with investments in 2020 and be frugal and of course make sure you place your annual cures and enhancers as this will help lessen the effects and turn a potentially harmful year into a good one
I am sure there will be many Snakes and Monkeys who will welcome the change that will take place on the 4th February 2020 (solar year) as they may have spent 2019 in direct conflict with the Pig and may have faced some challenges over the last 12 months although I know there will have been many Snakes and Monkeys who have enjoyed 2019 who followed our advice last year.
The best advice I can give to any of the Chinese animals, whether you’re predicted a problematic or easy year is to plan early and don’t leave it to the last minute; take a good read through our free advice for Chinese New Year 2020 and take a look through the annual Feng Shui cures and enhancers for 2020 and then combine this with a positive outlook on the year ahead in order to make this a successful and fun year of the Rat.
Chinese astrology is not like western astrology. The whole idea of it is to be informed of what may come and how you can apply cures and enhancers to avoid potential problems and having the information in advance you can avoid many of the issues that are forecasted. The information will also assist you to be prepared and to make informed decisions in 2020 that may affect your wellbeing and endeavours. You must know when and how to avoid bad influences during the Rat Geng Zi year.
The message I am trying to convey is even if you are a Horse and you read below or somewhere else advising that 2020 will not be a good year for you and all disasters will come your way, adopt a positive attitude and follow the advice given below and in the 2020 Flying Star (Xuan Kong) recommendations, you will be able to avoid any bad luck that is predicted.
Knowing how to avoid negative Flying Stars can help alter your year’s luck in a good way. I know you will come across websites or other Feng Shui masters who will predict all sorts of doom and gloom for a particular animal in 2020, please take this with a pinch of salt and enjoy a great 2020 as there are many positives aspects to the year.
Start preparing and placing your annual cures and enhancers, to ensure a trouble-free year and of course, make sure you check back each month for our monthly updates giving you even more control. Or you can use our professional Feng Shui software giving you even more control on an annual and monthly basis. This year we have combined the software with our annual cures kit to provide even better value.
What is the conflict Chinese Zodiac animal for 2020 in the year of Geng Zi?
Those born in the year of the Horse may be affected by the incompatible influences of the year of the Yang Metal Rat Geng Zi. In saying this, we hope that those born in the year of the Horse are aware of possible difficulties they may encounter during the year and take extra care in whatever they do without taking undue risks.
The degree of influence varies from one person to another. One of the primary considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born, and I have written below how all of the twelve Zodiac animals can make the most of the year of the Rat and what to focus on in their life this year.
As we come into the year of the Rat, we will need some exceptional cures and enhancers in 2020 to make the most of the year, and this is especially the case for individual animals.
To find your animal sign, check the charts below. If you were born before February 4th (Spring Begins), use the year before. If it is after February 4th, then use the same birth year. This is worth double-checking; as you would be amazed at how many people born in January or February get it wrong.
If you are unsure of your Chinese Animal maybe consider using our Feng Shui software that calculates it automatically along with personal Gua, flying stars, annual, fixed and monthly and so much more.
- Born 3rd February 1958 = Rooster
- Born 5th February 1958 = Dog
- Born 3rd February 1987 = Tiger
- Born 5th February 1987 = Rabbit
Please do not start panicking if you are born in the year of the Horse as there is a huge amount you can do to make this year a good one. Although the Horse is the conflict animal for 2020, this does not automatically condemn you to a terrible 2020; it just means the year may have a few more challenges and setbacks than you had hoped for, but there will still be a lot to look forward to!
All of the 12 Chinese animals will have some area of their life that will require attention in 2020 although as you read below, you will see that some will have it easier than others; you have to take the good with the bad, unfortunately. I have written below how all of the 12 animals can make the most of the year of the Rat and what to focus on in their life this year. As we come into the year of the Yang Metal Rat, we will need some extraordinary cures and enhancers to make the most of the year, and this is especially the case for individual animals.
Is Chinese astrology the same as western astrology?
Although similar in some ways, Chinese astrology and western astrology are two very different practises and should not be taken as the same thing. Chinese astrology is the practice of using cures and enhancers in your home, office, shop or any building to make the most of their circumstances and also enhance functional aspects and dissipate bad elements of the home’s energy.
The flying stars in a home cannot only bring great luck into the house, but they can also cause a lot of problems, making it essential to create the right balance. Chinese astrology is also about knowing how the year ahead could turn out and what you should be aware of in your life for the year according to the Chinese Animals.
Having an insight into how your year can go is an enormous advantage and will help you to make sure you focus on what needs to be done. Even if you are foretold problems in the year ahead, this helps you to know what to avoid and workaround to make the year a success.
Prevention is usually the best solution when you are predicted a troublesome year; if you read below that your animal could suffer from regular minor illnesses, you can then focus on your health for the year and create a healthy eating plan along with regular exercise. Knowing what could take place in the year ahead can help with good and bad aspects of your life; if you read below that your animal can advance in their career this year, it would be wise to dedicate time to your work and take on a more active role in the workplace.
We spend a great deal of time researching the 12 Chinese animals for the year ahead to make sure that the advice and information we give is as accurate and detailed as possible. When reading your analysis for your Chinese animal for 2020, I would recommend taking the time to read through carefully and even print (we have a printer friendly version on most pages) it out so you can check back on it regularly throughout the year when making big decisions to help you make the most of your year and avoid problems that could take place in 2020.
What can I do to make the year of the Yang Metal Rat as successful as possible?
“Most of us spend a lot of time dreaming about the future, never realising that a little of it arrives each day.”
The best advice I can give you for the year of the Rat is to make sure that you prepare early! Every year, we receive thousands of emails and calls during the week before Chinese New Year asking if we can get a cures kit over to Australia in three days or what to do with the south of the home as Tai Sui is located there for the year.
Although we ship orders very quickly, it is out of our control to send the annual cures and enhancers kit across the world in a few days and luckily, we have noticed that people are a lot more prepared in recent years ordering the 2020 Cures and enhancers in November and December in order to make sure everything is ready for the year ahead and there is no mad rush in February, and we thoroughly recommend you do this also.
Another vital resource for the year of the Rat is the 2020 Flying Star Analysis. Let’s say that your Chinese Animal is the Horse and you read below in the predictions that the year ahead will bring problems in to your life; by thinking positive and researching your Flying Star chart and enhancing the good areas and weakening the bad areas, you honestly can bypass a large number of problems that could be coming your way. It’s incredible how you can uncover the cause of your problems just by going through the Flying Star chart for your home or office.
If you are unsure how to map the Flying Star chart for your home, I would recommend taking a look at our Academy of Feng Shui Flying Star software as this will not only plan your home, it will also give you a full analysis for every sector of your home or office.
Other Feng Shui websites have said that all Horses will lose their jobs and get divorced in 2020; is this accurate?
This is not accurate at all but the Horse likely has some problems in 2020 and it is possible that there will be some Horse that go through health and relationship problems in 2020 although the chances are that the Feng Shui website is using scare tactics saying that you will have all sorts of issues during the year of the Rat and will need to buy all of their cures and enhancers in order to avoid the problems and will more than likely charge £50 for 15 minutes to speak with them on the phone for advice.
We have always worked on the ethos of offering alternatives to Feng Shui cures for people who do not want to use them or cannot afford them; although it is not as effective, we always believe that the options should be given. You will also see on our site that we have plenty of ways to quickly get in contact to ask us questions or advice.
We have been writing Chinese Animal predictions for over twenty years, and while we always state the facts, we will always offer a solution to any problems that may arise. Please take the advice that you read with a pinch of salt and have a fantastic year of Rat.
“It is better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.”
We usually release all of the annual information and cures around early November so that everyone has plenty of time to prepare for Chinese New Year and although we have other events ahead of this such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and others, I would still strongly recommend preparing as early as you can as I always find that Chinese New Year soon creeps up on you if you don’t plan ahead of time as it is easier to get a Christmas present at the last minute rather than get your Annual Cures and Enhancers in place on the 4th February 2020 (the date when you place your annual cures and enhancers.
If you want to be fully prepared, you could use our professional Flying Star Feng Shui Software or 2020 Tong Shu Almanac Software which will give you total control on an annual and monthly basis. This year we have combined the software with our annual cures kit to provide you with even better value and savings.
As I mentioned above, those born in the year of the Horse may be affected by the energy of the Rat year as the Horse is the conflict animal for the Rat year. Although the Horse may encounter problems in 2020, once you are aware of the potential issues, the Horse can do a considerable amount to avoid these problems fully materialising with avoiding risks and dangers. The degree of influence varies from one person to another.

2020 is the 4718th year of the Chinese calendar
In China, the solar calendar of the Geng Zi (Yang Metal Rat) year starts on 4th February 2020 at 17:02 China time. In the UK, the new solar year starts on 4th February 2020 at 09:02. In Washington USA it will start 4th February 2020 at 04:02, and if you live in Barcelona, you will place your cures at 10:02. Every year we put together a page on Chinese New Year world times 2020 that will help you confirm the times and dates for the Chinese New Year’s Solar and lunar.
