According to the 2020 Chinese horoscope, the Lunar New Year starts on Saturday, January 25th and ends on February 11th, 2021.
The Rat is the first sign from the 12 animals cycle of the Chinese Astrology, and for this reason, 2020 is considered a year of new beginnings and renewals.
The Year of the Metal Rat comes right after the Year of the Earth Pig (2019) and before the Year of the Metal Ox (2021)!
The years of the Rat are: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, and 2032.
New opportunities to find true love, and to earn more money will occur. The year 2020 will be successful for those who will take advantage of all the chances appearing throughout the year.
The year 2020 is quite challenging, especially health-wise, but also financially, with obstacles, impediments, and unpredictable situations, which will mainly occur during the first half of the year.
This situation is caused by the negative energy of the annual Flying Star 5, the star of destruction and disasters, which will have a strong influence during the Metal Rat year.
The vital force is weak, which is why this year you might feel pretty stressed, even by small things. You will notice slow progress in your projects, which is why you need to be confident in your strength, and you will be successful in bringing everything to a favorable end.
During the first half of the year, you will have more free time, and you will be able to rest and make plans for the future. You will consolidate the relationship with your life partner, and you will spend more time with the kids.
The year 2020 is under the influence of Flying Star 2, which is positioned in the south, causing all kinds of health issues.
The Metal Rat year is difficult and full of obstacles for the Water Chinese zodiac signs, but the other signs will also encounter many hurdles throughout the year, so they need to be more cautious than ever.
The Metal signs will face many difficult moments, and they will be forced to fight fiercely for their rights.
The Year of the Rat has ups and downs, but nothing of worth ever comes easy. During the second half of the year, the health of the Chinese zodiac signs will be much improved, their energy and zest for life coming back in full force.
You will have a hard time when you will be put in the situation of making decisions. Don’t let fear cloud your mind and soul. Trust your intuition!

Chinese New Year 2020
The Chinese New Year is celebrated every year through sumptuous and colorful festivities.
It is the most important celebration, an occasion for familiar reunion, party and two weeks long winter holiday.
Officially, the Chinese year of the rat starts on January 25th, and in order to have a great year, we are advising to include in the New Chinese Year’s menu what the Rat likes to eat, which means nuts and all kinds of cheese, and to wear during the party the most precious clothing and jewellery, because the rat loves opulence.
Career and Fortune
The Year of the Rat 2020 is under the sign of the Metal astral element, unlike the Pig Year, which has been under the Earth element.
All the actions initiated this year are driven by success. You need to follow your goals with confidence and determination.
The projects for the future must be well calculated and thought out, and the Rat will force the Dragons and Rabbits to take more safety measures and to think of several backup plans when they take action.
Nothing should be left to chance in 2020, and money, earnings, businesses, and careers need to be protected. The Ox and Monkey signs must be careful, and make no risky investments, without relying on financial help from somewhere else, or a salary increase, which might not come in time.
In 2020, most zodiac signs will be forced to rely on their resources, and the earnings they accumulated lately will form consistent savings for the future.
During the first months of the year, you need to mentally prepare for new responsibilities, but the good news is that you have everything you need to overcome any possible difficulties this year, so you can enjoy success.

will prove to be fairly unreasonable, inflexible, and stubborn, you need to count on your own strength and solve any problems on your own.
The Dragon, Goat, and Dog signs need to be as cautious in love as they are in protecting their money and job. It is a period when they will get closer to their family, and they will have the opportunity to spend more quality time with them.
Those who are tempted to make some big changes in their sentimental life are advised to wait for more peaceful times because this year is going to be troubled, and the bad luck can ruin all their plans.
The year 2020 will be eventful, and many people will have to choose between love and personal interests, passion, and ambition.
Those who are facing issues in the couple relationships will be one step from a divorce, as the Chinese Horoscope warns in 2020. A few of them will manage to save their marriages and only those who succeed in maintaining their love true and sincere.
Those who are not sure of their partners’ loyalty will also face challenges in love. Less pleasant surprises can occur anytime, but they don’t have to listen to all kinds of gossip. If they have an open and honest relationship, nothing will disturb their peace.
Compatibility between Rat and other zodiac signs: The Rat natives are going to have long-term relationships with the loyal Ox, adventurous Dragon, and the smart Monkey. However, they can’t stand the ever-changing Horse.
Many zodiac signs will feel very stressed, especially due to financial disputes, but also due to social and economic issues, which will affect the countries all over the world.
The extra weight can cause concern for the Ox, Pig, and Goat signs. This is why increased attention to the quality and quantity of food is required, especially in January and April.
Physical activity is indispensable to maintain your general balance, and, as much as possible, a good idea for all the signs is to try to include a few physical exercises in their daily schedule.
