Feng Shui 2020: How to Attract Luck in the Year of the Metal Rat

The Lunar New Year begins on January 25, 2020, and this day marks the beginning of the Year of the Metal Rat. Is your Chinese zodiac sign going to be lucky in the coming year? And what should you do to attract good luck according to the Feng Shui 2020 predictions?

Read on to learn your fate in the Year of the Metal Rat.


Is my Chinese animal sign lucky in 2020?

The Rat is the first of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. This means the Year of the Metal Rat is considered a year of new beginnings.

Feng Shui 2020 - Chinese Animal Signs

The great news is, this year will be a lucky year for almost all the Chinese zodiac signs. This is because the Rat is known as the protector and bringer of prosperity in ancient times.

The year will especially be lucky for Chinese animal signs compatible with the Rat, such as:

  • Ox
  • Dragon
  • Monkey

On the other hand, incompatible Chinese animals in 2020 are:

  • Horse
  • Rooster

Conflicting influences of the year may affect those under the Horse and Rooster. This is especially true for the Horse, which is the conflict animal of the Rat year.

People born in the year of the Horse should take extra care in whatever they do. They should also be aware of the potential difficulties that they may encounter in 2020.


Is my Chinese zodiac element lucky in 2020?

Is your animal sign unlucky in the Year of the Rat? Don’t worry. If you are compatible with the 2020 Chinese zodiac element, you will still enjoy a good fortune this year.

The lucky elements for 2020 are:

  • Water
  • Metal

If your birth element is Water, the Rat of 2020 will bring good fortune this year. The same holds true for those born under the Metal element, as the Metal of 2020 is also considered lucky.

However, you may struggle if you were born under the following elements:

  • Earth
  • Fire

Earth and Fire are considered unlucky elements in 2020. Don’t worry. If you are compatible with the 2020 Chinese zodiac element, there are still things you can do to enjoy a good fortune this year.
