I thought about the book The Wind in the Willows and the character Rat. I replaced “Him” in the quote below with “Us”!
“This is the place of my song-dream, the place the music played to me,” whispered the Rat, as if in a trance. “Here, in this holy place, here if anywhere, surely we shall find Us!”
We ring in the Chinese New Year, 2020 is the Year of the Metal Rat. As metal conducts, it can also be a busy year pushing through obstacles. In India the Rat is associated with Lord Ganesh “The Remover of Obstacles. The Rat is shown sitting next to eating sweets or Lord Ganesh atop him as his vehicle to get into small spaces to do his job as the destroyer and removal of obstacles. The Rat is the first sign in the Chinese Zodiac which starts a new cycle. Like the characteristics of the Rat, 2020 is a year to be productive, shrewd, spend time in nature and find your tribe. You can learn things things quickly as Rats are intelligent. Because of the busy nature of this little creature, you can find yourself overworking and worrying letting little things nibble around the edges at you. This can be a year of abundance but since metal is associated with water, don’t let the abundance flow through your fingers.
With health, let emotions move through you and not get stuck. Stuck emotions can create emotional and health problems It’s also a year to be in communities that support you and your interests. Isolation is not healthy for us or Rats as they are social creatures.
The Year of the Metal Rat can be a good year for love, if you stay confident and warm; as metal can be a bit cool and insecurity creates holes in relationships. Venus goes Retrograde in bridal season, May 13th – June 25th so in love, plan accordingly.
With Love and Joy,
