21 Jan What to Expect During the Year of the Rat, According to Your Zodiac Sign
January 25th marks the celebration of the Chinese New Year or the Spring Festival/Lunar New Year. Out of the 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac, in 2020 we celebrate the Year of the Rat.
It doesn’t sound that promising until you learn about what this really signifies- a year of progression and success in business. It’s quite the opposite compared to 2019, the Year of the Boar, which symbolizes self-care and balance.
However, this prediction of entrepreneurial success in the Year of the Rat doesn’t ring true for just anyone. According to Astrologists Jim Ventura and Cathryn Moe, the differences can be found within each Zodiac sign.
Water signs like Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces are going to be more willing to inch towards their goals this year this a focus on emotional issues in your life.
Scorpio: Out with the old and in with the new is the theme for Scorpios in the Year of the Rat. It’s time to find exciting and liberating new partners, while the old relationships need to change in order to survive.
Pisces: Similar to Scorpios, Pisces will also set their sights on something new to revitalize their mind, body and spirit. This might include a new group of friends to match your new 2020 mindset.

Cancer: Astrologists suggest that Cancers should prepare for a “radically different relationship with a former, current or potential romantic partner” as 2020 means “more physical, emotional or even geographical distance.” Cancers should keep their friends close during this change of pace.
The Year of the Rat sparks tenacity in fire signs, such as Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, who are in the zone this year and accomplishing more long term goals.
Aries: Chinese culture suggests that out of the past 248 years, this is the most important year for success in your career for Aries. A promotion or a new and exciting role is on the horizon!
Leo: People born under Leo are focusing on fitness and surgical or medical changes in 2020.
