Feng Shui is...
Welcome to Feng Shui Wisdom…
2020 is Year of the RAT!
Just like you have your own birth chart, which reveals information about you personally, the world has its own birth chart also each year. This is how worldly yearly predictions are made.
Everything in the Universe fits into a Feng Shui classification and is known as an ‘element’. There are five elements: Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth. The elements interact with each other via three cycles, and the interaction is either productive, exhausting or destructive – in other words the interaction is either favourable or unfavourable.
Working out the yearly predictions is done via a detailed process relating to which five elements are present in the world’s birth chart, their meanings, and how the five elements interact with each other.
2020 YEAR OF THE METAL RAT
- The Rat marks the start of a new calendar cycle, and the energies will be major, they will be stronger and greater.
- The Rat is the Chinese Zodiac sign that can eke out wealth and success from very minimal resources. There is new wealth to be made, profits can be attained.
- Productivity will be at an all-time high, and the energies will move fast, enabling ideas and projects to progress at great speeds.
- Creativity will reach new heights, especially regarding money-making ideas. Continued developments can be made, and thinking outside of the box will best reward your efforts.
- The Rat is known as a ‘Peach Blossom’ animal – this means it brings romance. More love and passion abound – prospects are more forthcoming.
THE NOT SO GOOD
- The Rat’s intrinsic element representation is Water, and Water represents emotions. It will be an emotion-fuelled year, and fear may set in.
- Water-related disasters will be prominent, floods, sea accidents, etc. Injuries will occur more easily through Water-related activities – exercise caution with all sports and endeavours.
- As it is a Metal Rat year, the Metal will weaken the Earth in the world’s birth chart, which means the possibility of Earth disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, sinkholes, building collapses, etc.
- A year whereby disputes will arise easily – conflicts and quarrelling may be prominent, and anger heightened. More protests and riots may occur. Patience is called for to help navigate through the year.
- The clash of the Rat and Horse brings bloodshed – this will be through accidents and violence.
- On a health level, major weaknesses will be brought about by breathing organs – lungs and nose; along with kidney and urinary system – seek medical treatment as soon as any ailments arise. Overall vitality may also be low.
- While romance abounds, not all romance may be wanted. There may also be temptations which can lead to infidelity.

There are a few main Schools of Feng Shui and this is why it can often be overwhelming and perhaps difficult to understand. The main schools comprise of Form School, Compass School, Kua Directions, Flying Stars, plus Chinese Astrology. Some of the schools have multiple names and often Masters refer to them differently. They are, however, the same practice when looking at ‘traditional’ teachings of Feng Shui, and together they offer you a complete Feng Shui overview.
