New Beginnings in the Year of the Rodent

by The Tao Time Guide

The Year of the Rodent will start as a time of beginnings! New and renewed energy aspires for opportunities, love and money. Ambitions rise to precipitous heights, taking 2020 on a whiplash, sine wave climbing, wavering then dipping into a white knuckle ride.

Rodent is the first sign in the Chinese zodiac. Being first, this is considered to be a year of new beginnings and renewals. Rodent is imbued with Golden Metal Male lucky streak characteristics. Golden yellow attracts, metal element creates activity and productivity, surety of every possibility magnified by male presence gifts Rodent this time around.

Following the gathering, storing and completing Year of the Pig time, Rodent is flush and confident. The beginning of the year in the latter days of January and into February are extremely bright and full of motivation. The gift of a new, clean, fresh year, with no mistakes and no regrets lays before one. Eager beginnings, fast failures, rushing past mistakes looking for the newest shiny thing to gnaw at can plague Rodent in the early opulent months. Luck will save Rodent again and again. A sagely Rodent learns.

Rodent’s influence begins the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac on January 25 through to February 11, 2021. The Year of the Metal Rodent follows the Year of the Earth Pig (2019) and precedes the Year of the Metal Ox (2021). Know where you come from, know where you are going.

The Metal Rodent Year is going to be a strong, prosperous and lucky year for all Chinese Zodiac signs. Everyone will show renewed determination regarding their goals, aspirations and even hobbies. This is a great year for founding and evolving.

One must be relentless in order to accomplish objectives. When discouraged by failure, problems or difficulties, contemplate the time the object is in and the paths available. When times appear unreasonable, inflexible and stubborn, wait seven days, use your strength and solve any problems on your own. Call on the lucky streak to intervene; it is always at arm’s length.

Seeing what is coming, one can prepare in a relaxed manner. The second part of 2020 will bring a grating distrust, for which some reasons may exist, some fictive, some arising from lack of honesty. Here, the climb has peaked, the dip looms ahead.

Throughout 2020, luck is on your side, you need to seize it as soon as it knocks on your door. The Chinese say that nothing scares away luck more than when it is doubted. Take advantage of the time the Rodent offers; it is clearly available this year and it can be the foundation for new habits and actions that you’ve wanted to initiate for a long time. In turn, those who show enthusiasm and act quickly will be able to ensure success.
