2020 Year of the Metal Rat Annual Forecast


This year’s Paht Chee chart features a balanced basket of elements with no missing elements. But there are excessive amounts of Earth, which indicates increased stress and worry. There are however strong indications that underlying the increased tension lies treasure to be tapped. Something good will come out of any period of worry, and relationships will sustain despite temporary strains.

Emerging new technologies will be the driving factor behind new sources of wealth and business.

The biggest concern in 2020 would be the emergence of toxic people who ride on negativity to gain popularity and fame, and this, if left unchecked, could lead to much infighting and quarrels. Thus there is a need to control the negative energies brought by the dominant hostile star and the quarrelsome star in the sector of the Rat, the animal sign of the year. Everyone should carry the Annual Amulet 2020 to reap the best of what the year has to offer.

For those looking to close deals and unlock the hidden wealth of the year, carry the Sum of Ten Amulet. This activates the unique combination of the dominant number with the dominant sign to bring Completion Luck.


Fortunately, the Lap Chun, which falls on 4th February occurs after Chinese New Year, which falls on 25th January. This means that the Year of the Metal Rat starts the year with plenty of growth energy. This will help pull economies across the world out of recession, and from a micro viewpoint, this will also help the individual augment business and income luck. Rat years are always years when there is money to be made. Stay on the look-out for new opportunities; if your element luck is strong, you can turn prospects into wealth spectacularly.

Place the Wealth Tree with Mongoose and 6 Birds in the NW to activate big wealth and growth luck.


While 3 of the pillars of the year’s Paht Chee chart are in harmony, the month pillar is not as harmonious, where Yang Earth sits on top of Yang Wood. This means that while we may see increased business, there may be a reduction in profit margin in the long term. Thus all businesses must place the Wealth Bull in their finance department. Or place on your work desk. This all-powerful bull bestows a very special kind of blessing that attracts wealth and helps you spot the big breaks.


2020 marks the start of a new cycle. We go into a NEW AGE which will change the way business is done. It will also change the way we live our lives. We should open our minds and embrace the changes coming to ensure we stay on the forefront of an exciting new digital age.


For those thinking of changing jobs, the best months to do so are in between the first two quarters of the year – April till June.


Both direct and indirect wealth energy is ample this year, with wealth originating from new innovations and strategies, much more so than from tried and tested methods. However, there could be a danger of not having sufficient resources. Place the Double Humped Camel in the Northwest of your office to protect your resources from being wasted, and to ensure you never run into cash flow problems.

With the right amount of determination, and proper planning, you can achieve previously unattained heights of success. It is the kind of year where there will be no shortage of lucrative opportunities.

This year especially benefits those born in the year of the Ox, Dragon, Snake, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster and Dog.

These animal signs all enjoy Big or Small Auspicious Stars, bringing unexpected wealth, windfall and opportunities.


The first half of the year is better for preparation and planning; the second half of the year is better for implementation of new directions.
