Career: ★★★☆☆ 

Career luck for Rats, by contrast, is way better among other aspects. Under the blessing of Jiang Xing and Sui Jia, auspicious stars that are conducive to one’s career, there is a chance for you to get promoted. However, it’s you will come up against certain obstacles and difficulties in the year of fate (Ben Ming Nian). Don’t worry, all you need to do is improve your ability and skills against a rainy day. 

Love: ★★☆☆☆ 

Plain would be the word to describe your love luck in 2020. For those who are in a relationship, you ought to be more alert when getting along with people, especially the opposite sex. As for those who are single, you can be popular among people due to the success in your career, yet most of your admirers are not the right one for you. 

Health: ★☆☆☆☆ 

You should put most of your focus on your health. If you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic condition, you have to go for regular check-ups in case of the risk of deterioration. Besides this, there’s a great chance of accidents or the disaster of blood you will be under the negative influence of several inauspicious stars, Jian Feng and Fu Shi. 

Fortune: ★★★☆☆ 

When it comes to wealth, your luck can be rather satisfactory in terms of both Direct Wealth and Indirect Wealth(windfall) – this is under the influence of the auspicious star Jin Gui. However, you may find it hard to save your money as there will be some unforeseen expenditure on, for example, doctors’ fees, medication or maintenance costs which will be unavoidable. 

What to avoid: 

In your year of fate, you should avoid going to places where negative Chi or energy is in abundance, such as the hospital, cemetery or funerals. In addition to this, you’ve got to be especially careful with ‘metal’ this year due to the impact of an inauspicious star. For instance, you have to be careful when driving or operating machinery.

Career: ★★★★★
