Chinese Horoscopes for 2020

Many people have asked me whether 2020 will be a good year. I always say, “Yes it will be a good year,” because for me every year is a good year! Of course there will be problems and trouble that comes to me but this is life. I will deal with these things instead of moaning and complaining about them and so 2020 will be a good year.  

If we study, Qigong, Yijing易經 or Feng Shui風水 We need to know the energy of the year. Everybody will know that this year 2020 is the Year of the Rat and it is a Metal Rat. Each year has two elements which joined together with the animal’s element. One comes from the Tiangan天干 (Heavenly Stems) and the other comes from the Dizhi地支 (Earthly Branches).

Five Elements

The Tiangan for the year is Geng庚. Geng is Yang Metal, something like a big engine or machine. The Dizhi of the year is Zi子, which is Yang Water, like a big ocean. It is also the Year of the Rat. So it is a Metal Rat, and Metal and Water year. If you know the Five Elements, you will know that Metal creates Water and this Water meets the Water of the Year, so this is a good energy.

Horoscopes for 2020

  • People born in the Year of the Tiger
  • People born in the Year of the Rabbit

Tiger and rabbit are Wood elements. Water create Wood, but Metal cut Wood. so this means there is one plus and one minus. Overall this means 2020 will be a normal year for you, there will be some gain and some loss. 

  • People born in the Year of the Snake
  • People born in the Year of the Horse

The snake and the horse are both Fire elements. Water puts out Fire and Fire melts Metal. So although Fire melts Metal,  the Fire is cooled by the Water. So for you 2020 will be a year where you will do too much as it will be tiring.

  • People Born in the Year of the Dragon
  • People Born in the Year of the Goat
  • People Born in the Year of the Dog
  • People Born in the Year of the Ox

The Dragon, goats, dog and ox are all Earth elements. Earth creates Metal and also blocks Water coming forwards. This means in 2020 there will be much going on, with someone helping you and someone defending you. All it will be a busy year.

  • People Born in the Year of the Monkey
  • People Born in the Year of the Dragon

The monkey and chicken are both Metal elements. this means Metal to Metal and so they get along and support each other, combined with the Metal creating Water it means this year will have a lot of helps and so it is a good year. 

Horoscopes for 2020

These horoscopes are not 100% accurate. This is because if we really want to know the details of the year are and how they affect ourselves we need to take into account the entire date of birth including the time, and then we can really work out which elements is your Tiangan and Dizhi date. Nevertheless these will give us a rough idea of the energy of the year.
