The last Year of the Metal Rat happened 60 years ago, and within that time period, the 5 elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water) and the 12 animal signs (Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig) have completed the cycle according to the traditional Chinese solar calendar. This is why the Year of the Metal Rat 2020 is said to be a year of new beginnings – new opportunities, love and business or career success.  

Ms. Allen shared that, “If you are turning 60 years old next year, then you will complete the cycle of the elements and animal signs.  The last time the Year of the Metal Rat occurred was in 1960.”

The Year of the Metal Rat Year is seen to be a strong, prosperous, and lucky year, and is a great year for founding and evolving.  The years of the Rat are: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, and 2032.

Well attended by media and bloggers, the press conference held last October 9 at Novotel Manila Araneta City was a preview to the November 24 feng shui convention where, Ms. Allen will discuss forecasts on love, health, wealth, and career; ways on how to enhance the lucky sectors and downplay the unlucky sectors; meanings of special numbers; and how to tap your guide spirit.  She will also share how to have miracle mornings; how to create a wealth vase for 2020; how to do a vision board for 2020 and beyond; and reveal what’s on your destiny chart for the Year of the Metal Rat.

One important feature of the destiny chart is the so-called Flying Stars or the lucky and unlucky sectors in one’s home or office that are associated with the various animal signs.  For 2020, the lucky sectors are Southeast, for windfall of good fortune; Northeast, for victory; Northwest, for financial wealth; West for prosperity; and Southwest for romance and travel opportunities.  On the other hand, the unlucky sectors are East, for misfortune; South, for illness; the Center, for robbery or loss; and North, for arguments.

The lucky signs for 2020 are Dragon, Snake, Tiger, Ox, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar while the unlucky signs are Rabbit, Rat and Horse.  Ms. Allen cautions those born in the year which clashes with the animal sign of 2020, “If you are BORN in the DAY or YEAR of the HORSE, then you are in CONFLICT with the Year of the RAT.  Another warning that I’d like to say because the pillar of 2020 is an Ox, those of you born in the DAY or YEAR of the SHEEP will be challenged.”

The press conference also served as the launching of Marites Allen’s 2020 horoscope books, Feng Shui Almanac and Planner, the 2020 Feng Shui App, and the Frigga e-commerce website.
