This week was Chinese New Year and hence we have now officially entered the year of the Earth Rat in Chinese Astrology.
Here's an excerpt of what some astrologers have to say about the year ahead"
After two Fire years, life may seem calmer during this Earth year. That could be deceptive, however, as the Rat never stops moving, especially when it comes to mental activity. Unfortunately, Earth has a destructive relationship with the Rat's fixed element, Water. This is not disastrous, but it means you should not rely much on luck this year. I am not sure how this effects me as a Wooden Tiger, but we'll see. I just like that I am a wooden tiger in Chinese astrology, because it sounds cool.
Happy New Year and Year of the Rat!
