Chinese Astrology

The Chinese New Year begins this year on January 25th, 2020 in China at 5h42 am Beijing Time (on the 26th in Europe and the USA) and ends on February 11th, 2021.

This is the year of the Rat, which is generally a sign of wealth and fertility because rats make large litters. So this year of the Rat is also meant to be favorable in terms of projects of every kind. To find out more about Chinese astrology sign dates, please look at the table below. Even if you aren’t born under the sign of the Rat, you can nonetheless benefit from the advantages of this year of the Rat.

For that, once you have determined your sign according to Chinese astrology, read your predictions in the 2020 horoscope that corresponds to your sign and follow the advice given in your everyday life. According to tradition, Chinese astrology has been used since 2637 BC! The date when it was codified by legendary Emperor Huang Di.

The twelve animals of Buddha

According to a Buddhist legend, the names of the different Chinese signs were given by Buddha on the day of a Chinese New Year. He is said to have promised a reward to animals of Creation who made the effort to visit him.

Only twelve animals turned up. Buddha attributed them a year bearing their name, in the order in which they arrived. And thus they appeared, one after the other: the Rat, the Ox, the Tiger, the Rabbit, the Dragon, the Snake, the Horse, the Goat, the Monkey, the Rooster, the Dog, and the Pig!

New Year’s Day changes every year!

The years of the Chinese horoscope follow a lunar calendar and have been in the same order since the beginning. The lunar calendar has only twenty-eight days, which explains why, each year, Chinese New Year falls on a different day.

Thus, the year of the Rat begins on January 25th, 2020. Those born under the sign in question are naturally favored by luck, but the other signs can also benefit from the positive astral vibrations of this year of the Rat.

Once you have determined your Chinese sign, turn to the characteristics of your sign and your predictions for this Chinese New Year.
