2020 invites us to connect deeper into our relations with others.

Spiritual maturation is a theme. Awareness of the Oneness will propel us there. It’s time to elevate our consciousness as a collective for the sake of humanity, rather than individually. Be cautious like the Rat. Ensure stability as you proceed; retreat when things get contentious.

Listen before assuming. Pause before reacting. Love before fearing.

Natal 4 Pillar Astrology Chart

The Chinese Solar New Year begins February 4, 2020 at 5:18pm.

Rat (year pillar) the first animal of the Chinese zodiac, ushers in new beginnings, enthusiasm, complexity, busy-ness, and resourcefulness. On the shadow side, Rat can be insecure, indifferent, jealous, over sexualized, secretive, and careless.

Tiger (month pillar), wants you to discern …What is the quality of inspiration or discouragement you give others? Are you focusing on what is wrong or what is right? I invite you to allow things, and people, to just BE what they are—without judgment or the need to change them.

Find comfort in knowing progress is happening behind the scenes with Rat’s Secret Friend, the Ox (day pillar), being present in this year’s chart. Ox reminds us to go slow and steady.

And finally the presence of the Rooster (hour pillar), may bring about insecurity within our own emotional bodies. Practice self-control; choose listening over speaking. Gather information to inform and satisfy the intellect and express your emotions through art, music, and writing.

The Master Element of the year is Fire, but is weakened by strong Earth and Metal. This pulls our attention outward to focus on what we can offer and create when we think of the collective. Our rewards will be felt and received in ways unimaginable. It’s time for good work. Roll up your sleeves and contribute positive vibes in all you do!


Be Unstoppable

Rat is ambitious and successful in his endeavors.

A strong will backed by compassion and a desire to feed the collective, will serve us well.
