2020 Chinese Lunar New Year – Year of the Rat & What This Means for Your Zodiac

According to Chinese astrology, the Rat is the first sign of the zodiac wheel, indicating a new wave of energy and a fresh start to a new cycle.  As we move from the year of the Yin Earth Pig to the year of the Yang Metal Rat, we enter into a year of pure renewal, one filled with the opportunity to come into alignment with the truth of who we really are.

From January 25th through February 11th we will be in the bountiful Year of the Rat, ushering in powerful vibrations that will reverberate through every part of our being. As we set our resolutions for 2020 and enter a year of new beginnings, we allow ourselves to start something new, listen to our heightened intuition, and plant the seeds that will continue to grow abundantly even through the year of the Ox in 2021.


The Year of the Rat will affect us all, but each zodiac will feel this energy differently. Here is how this Chinese New Year will affect you: 




The Year of the Rat most closely aligns with the Sun sign of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. This year is going to be incredible for you as things begin to fall into alignment you start to manifest your grand vision. Be sure to keep setting big goals and intentions and continuing to strive to get better. You will receive recognition and success this year but do not take this for granted. Continue to work hard and cultivate all you have sowed.




This is a year dedicated to planning and organization. As you put the effort into carrying out 2020 with greater intention and purpose than prior years, you will see the Universe reward you handsomely. This is a time for letting go of that which no longer serves you, of that which deserves to be left in the past, as you create a game plan and set yourself up for success in the near future. Dedicate this year to taking care of your body and mind and build a strong foundation for all that is to come.




You will finally feel like you are in control of all that is around you during this bountiful year. You will be able to handle any challenges that come your way with grace and feel compelled to rid yourself of any negative energy around you as you instead embrace divine light, positivity, and inspiration. You will be able to handle your relationships and career incredibly well and will remain persistent and committed in achieving all of your aspirations and goals.




You have things from this past year that you did not follow through with and that’s alright. This is a new year of honing your skills and accomplishing your goals. Use this time to create a solid foundation as you take the next steps in your life towards the future that you desire. Take the time to figure out what is and is not working for you. This level of awareness will help shine a light on the path you are meant to take as you begin your journey.




Your past anxiety and fears will begin to melt away this year as you move towards an innate sense of serenity and peace and enjoy the simple magic of the present moment. This is time to remember that the past is in the past and you are here at this very moment for a divine purpose. Push past any lack of motivation that may arise and tackle anything that comes your way. You are being supported and unconditional love is flowing through you.




This year will be one of resolution. The problems of your past will soon be resolved, and your energy will begin to lighten as you are able to set down the weight of the burdens you have been carrying. This is an incredible time for taking care of yourself. You know you have a tendency to put too much on your plate and you can often feel overwhelmed. Take time for self-care and self-love and let the worries of the world melt away.




The ultimate lesson for this year is to embrace the concept of “new year, new me.” You are the creator of your reality. Don’t be afraid to try something new or exciting and instead let your fears subside. Watch how quickly the Universe rewards your boldness. This is the perfect time for releasing bad habits and making the choices that you know are going to lead to a healthier and better you. You will feel drawn to investing in your relationships with those around you as you work on strengthening your bonds.




This is a year of transformation for you. Things are changing and you may feel overwhelmed at first. Remember that every change is for the best, release your grasp, and watch the blessings pour over you. You may have stayed in certain situations that you know aren’t right for you out of convenience. Get ready for newfound determination and motivation as you release that which is no longer serving you. So, take a chance. Pursue that job, that relationship, that home, that opportunity. You will be rewarded.




This year is full of bright, light energy. You are being supported in everything you do and every decision you make. As you awaken to the divine in you, you will notice incredible abundance flow into your life. Financial stability, career growth, and bettered health are on the horizon. This is a year of heightened energy as you feel a pull towards socializing and meeting new people. The people that enter your life will stay with you and bring unbounded joy.




Even though this zodiac sign is ruled by logic, the Year of the Rat will allow you to begin to feel more in touch with your emotions. You will feel motivated to speak your truth and express yourself which will be incredibly liberating. Ask for what you want and don’t be afraid to walk away if you are not receiving what you need. Make sure not to act out of pure impulsivity. Simply allow yourself to trust in the divine process and take action along the way to fully align yourself with your true life’s calling.




This is a year dedicated to open-mindedness for you. You have been mentally stuck for quite some time and something has simply not felt as it should. You will be blessed with a fresh and new perspective that will allow you to see things as they truly are. Let yourself go with the flow and watch the possibilities and opportunities pour into your life. Make the most of this heightened awareness and embrace the opportunities that arise.




For you, this is a year of productivity. There are a lot of things that you wish to accomplish this year and you have already set some intentions. This is the time to tackle your projects head on as you feel a heightened sense of focus. You have your eye on the prize; move forward with purpose. This year will bring you a lot of joy and happiness so embrace all that is to come and enjoy this time. Make sure to pay attention to any minor shifts and changes that may arise as this is the Universe pushing you in the right direction.

The alignment of the Chinese Lunar New Year with the Aquarius New Moon showers us in powerful cosmic energy giving us newfound determination, heightened creativity, and the confidence to move forward on our true life’s path with divine light. You are the creator of your own existence and are now open to receiving infinite possibilities and opportunities.

Sending infinite love & blessings your way!

Full Wolf Moon Eclipse in Cancer to Start 2020 – January 10th

On January 10th at 2:23pm EST, we will feel the Full Wolf Moon vibrating radiantly in the sign of Cancer. Since there was no Cancer Full Moon in all of 2019, this one will be extremely powerful as the Universe showers in some much-needed Cancer energy. This Moon also coincides with an incredibly potent Lunar Eclipse which further amplifies that Cancerian energy and will be felt for quite some time to come. No matter what your Sun sign is, the Cancer energy raining down during this Full Moon will be felt deeply.


Resolutions, endings and new beginnings


Lunar Eclipses help to align us with the depths of the cosmos and the higher dimensions that extend all around us. This alignment will open a portal of accelerated energy that will help to move and shift things from our lives. It will serve to bring resolutions and endings to those things that we have outgrown as our consciousness has heightened.

Lunar Eclipses can sometimes feel harsh as we are asked to let go of those things that we weren’t quite sure we were ready to let go of. However, by releasing these things from our lives and illuminating the truth, the Universe is working to clear a path forward for us and helping to accelerate our soul’s journey. We are being given access to incredibly powerful energies that will help guide us through this next year and decade as we are showered in wisdom and clarity.

This Eclipse is connected to the Eclipse that we experienced in July 2019 so any themes or anything that is still unresolved from this time may come back to the surface. We are working to reset our emotions as we clear away the emotional baggage of the previous six months. 


Time to open our hearts wide open and embrace emotional sensitivity


This Cancer Full Moon will be emotionally charged and carries with it strong release energy. We will feel our emotions tenfold and in ways we never thought possible. Many people believe that they have to turn away from overwhelming emotions, but it is by experiencing these pulses in our beings to their fullest that we are truly able to get in tune with our souls and align with our Higher selves.

This Cancer Moon will face off against the Sun and four other planets that are all in Capricorn. This group of planets, all in one sign, form what is known as a stellium. Capricorn is thoughtful, logical, and practical and this stellium will try to pull us in order to reign in Cancer’s watery and emotional sensitivity. However, even with a stellium, Capricorn stands no chance against this powerful Cancer Moon ruling over our heart chakra.

The boundaries around our hearts will crack wide open as we let our heightened sensitivity and heightened emotions rule over us. We are being given the ability to practice heart activations. If you have been working on healing your heart, this powerful Cancer energy is here to help. It will allow you to open your heart center and channel the language of the Universe – love. We are reminded that there is not a single problem that cannot be solved with this divine power.


With this Lunar Eclipse opposite Mercury, we will face an internal conflict of polarizing feelings


This cosmic alignment stirs up emotional bias as we become quick to react to things that happen around us without taking the time to fully see the big picture. This can make it more difficult to understand and process our emotions as we jump between them quickly. The normal everyday problems that we typically have no trouble solving may become a struggle for us as we face this internal emotional turmoil. We may be quick to jump into an argument over a simple misunderstanding or may just feel more sensitive than usual to the world around us.

During this emotionally heightened alignment, it’s important to take the time needed to reflect. Try to understand and communicate your feelings to avoid conflict. Try to understand the way that your prejudices may influence your words or thoughts and make you say things you may later regret. This cosmic alignment makes it easy to speak and react instinctively, especially if you get upset or frustrated. The lesson here is to listen carefully, think before you speak, and take the time that is needed to make sense of any conflicted feelings that may arise. Talking to a friend or mentor can be a powerful tool for navigating your emotions during this time.


With the Full Moon opposite Saturn and Pluto, we face some more emotional legwork that must be done to help us move forward with clarity


This alignment can make negative emotions manifest outward towards those around you. If you feel bored, lonely, or sad during this cosmic alignment, you become more prone to bad moods and to lashing out at those you love. If you have a tendency towards depression in particular, you’ll need to work hard to make sure that the amplified energy of this Full Moon alignment doesn’t also amplify those feelings of sadness.

Any emotion that you feel during this time will be heightened to its maximum and its intensity can make it difficult to control your own behaviors and reactions. It becomes easy to fall into relationship drama as we feel ourselves experience an emotional rollercoaster from the highest highs to the lowest lows. While we must be cognizant of the Moon’s influence during this time, we can’t suppress or ignore our feelings.

We must feel every emotion deeply in order to find balance within ourselves. It is easy to shy away from our complex inner emotional lives, but our emotions are a response to the experience of life. By understanding our emotions and why we feel the way we feel, we can understand our deep personal truths and connect with our Higher selves and the highest Universal consciousness. We are being taught to understand ourselves at our most fundamental level so that we can move forward stronger than ever before. 

With the Lunar Eclipse trine Neptune, the Universe is communicating clearly with us that all we are going through, all the challenges we are facing, all the obstacles we are overcoming, are all helping propel us down our divine path. We are being showered in the greatest blessing of all – hope. We are on the cusp of revolutionizing our lives. Neptune is here to provide us with the inspiration and faith to keep us going on this path.

Practices like meditation and prayer will help us see past any turmoil we may face during this alignment and will keep our soul’s open to receiving the abundance that is to come. Meditation allows us to tune out the noise and confusion and reflect deeply on what it is that we are learning, what it is that we need to know to move forward. When you tune out the noise and converse with your soul, you become one step closer to enlightenment. When your faith begins to waiver, trust that everything will turn out exactly as it should.

This cosmic alignment is a heavy one and will work to set the stage for months to come. It combines with the December 25-26th Solar Eclipse to form an Eclipse phase that will linger until the following Lunar Eclipse on June 5th. 


The main focus of this Full Wolf Moon Lunar Eclipse is on open & clear communication


This Moon may try to provoke feelings of coldness or ruthlessness. It may put us in the path of the harsh realities of bigots and bullies as they try to get a rise out of us. It may increase our emotional sensitivity and nervous anxiety as we try to navigate our everchanging feelings. However, the Universe is always by our side. If we didn’t have the tools to do so before, this Moon will give us everything that we need to move forward with clarity and confidence. It will give us the courage to speak our truth, speak up for ourselves, and speak up for those around us. Even in the face of obstacles, the Universe works to illuminate our path and point us in the right direction.

We are being guided to express ourselves without apology. We are being asked to open our hearts, get in touch with our wide array of emotions, and ultimately work on feeling at home just as we are within ourselves. Every emotion that we experience serves a purpose, allowing us to learn and grow. Each feeling leaves us with profound insights, a deep understanding of self, and heightened consciousness.

After missing out on a Cancer Full Moon in 2019, we may have forgotten the depths that our emotions can reach and the rich diversity that they bring. This Moon is here to allow us to get back in touch with our emotional selves. This Cancer energy is here to remind us not to shy away from our emotions but instead to embrace and understand all that they conjure.

Emotions are not weaknesses. They are one of our most powerful resources that help to align us with our soul destiny, advance our spiritual journey, and accelerate us higher than ever before. While the wide array of emotions we may experience during this cosmic alignment may be a jarring experience, it is only by experiencing and understanding our emotions that we can connect with our true selves. Make sure to be gentle with yourself during this Full Wolf Moon. Take the time that you need for self-care and comfort and trust that the Universe is working to align everything in your favor.

We are being guided on a divine journey to understanding ourselves and understanding our soul’s path and we have never been more ready.

January 2020 Energy Update

As we enter into a new decade and see the limitless possibilities ahead, the Universe is here to make sure that the energy of this first month of 2020 will be felt deeply. January 2020 is a power month with a focus on our spiritual awakening. It will set the stage for all that is to come, not just for this year but also for the entire decade ahead.

The celestial shifts and cosmic energies will be the strongest we’ve felt yet. The first few weeks of January may leave us feeling restless, anxious, or heavy as we adapt to this influx of energy but rest assured that we are being pulled to our divine path and are aligning with where we need to be.


Emotions are not a sign of weakness; they are one of our most powerful resources.


On January 10th, we will see a Full Moon vibrating radiantly in the sign of Cancer. There was no Full Moon in Cancer in all of 2019 so this Moon will be incredibly powerful as the Universe showers us in some much-needed Cancer energy. This Full Moon also brings with it a potent Lunar Eclipse whose energy will amplify the Cancer traits and will be felt for quite some time to come. This Eclipse is connected to the Eclipse that we experience in July of 2019 so any themes or anything that is still unresolved from this time may come back to the surface.

The Universe wants us to go into this new year with a clean slate, resolving past conflicts, healing old traumas, and embracing the abundance that is to come with open arms. Leave that which is not meant to come into this new decade with you in the past. This Cancer Full Moon will be emotionally charged and carries strong release energy. We will feel our emotions deeply and boldly. Many people believe that they have to turn away from overwhelming emotions, but it is by experiencing these pulses in our beings to their fullest that we are truly able to get in tune with our souls and align with our Higher selves. Every emotion we experience serves a purpose and helps us learn and grow. Every emotion brings profound insights, much needed closure, and heightened consciousness.

This Cancer energy is here to remind us not to shy away from our emotions but instead to embrace and understand all that they conjure. Emotions are not a sign of weakness; they are one of our most powerful resources. The Full Moon in conjunction with a Lunar Eclipse opens a portal of energy that will bring events that are aligned with our soul destiny, advancing our spiritual journey, allowing us to continue to move forward, and helping us accelerate higher than ever before. Be aware though as this powerful energy can sometimes be a jarring experience and we all process these energies differently. Be gentle with yourself, take the time you need for self-care, and realize that everything is aligning in your favor.


Once in a lifetime experience – Saturn and Pluto conjunction in the sign of Capricorn


On January 12th, we will experience a long-anticipated Saturn and Pluto conjunction in the sign of Capricorn. The last time that these two planets aligned was in 1982 in the sign of Libra. The alignment of these two planets in Capricorn is something that no one alive has ever experienced or will experience again in their lifetime. The rarity of this conjunction makes it incredibly powerful and will serve to create a ripple of energy that will be felt this entire year and for quite some time to come.

This once in a lifetime alignment carries with it transformative and life-changing energy that will be felt deeply as we awaken to our own enlightenment. It may not be until the end of the year that we are truly able to make sense of the seeds that will be planted this month and the transformations that will occur. The Saturn and Pluto conjunction falling so close to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will carry some heaviness as we try to unpack our many thoughts and emotions. Our subconscious will feel this shift deeply and will help transform us in a life-changing way. Remember to stay patient as you watch your divine truths unfold before you.

The Sun moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on January 20th, giving us a break from the heaviness of these last few weeks. This will feel like a breath of fresh air as we emerge from the strong cosmic alignments that we have experienced. Aquarius is an air sign so we will almost immediately begin to feel more light and airy. Any conflicts or issues that have arisen will begin to soften. Capricorn energy can sometimes make us obsess over things that are out of our control as we feel an innate pull to try to fix the world’s problems. Aquarius will help to put things in perspective and allow us to release our grip on all that we have no bearing over.


New Moon & the beginning of a new cycle


On January 24th-25th, we will experience our first New Moon of the Year in the sign of Aquarius. This New Moon brings with it themes of change and furthered awakening. Everything leading up to this New Moon has prepared us to embrace and embody all of the changes that are to come, and we will begin to see with divine clarity what we need to do moving forward.

This New Moon will also see us experience some powerful Uranus energy, as this planet will be incredibly active during this time. Uranus is the planet of awakening and change and will serve to shake up the things in our lives as a means of awakening us to a new way of being. This may lead us to some uncertainty at first as we feel unsettled by this cosmic alignment. However, sometimes we need this uncertainty in order to help us discover our own strengths and ability to persevere. We are being guided to a new way of being and we have to take a leap of faith and trust in divine timing.

The Universe is helping us to revolutionize our lives and move forward into more abundance and prosperity as we embrace this new era of self. This energy will give us the clarity to see what lies ahead for us in 2020. The Aquarius New Moon also signals the start of the Chinese New Year, as we move from the year of the Yin Earth Pig to the year of the Yang Metal Rat. According to Chinese astrology, the Rat is the first sign of the zodiac wheel, indicating a new wave of energy and a fresh start to a new cycle.


Let go of the old that is no longer serving you and embrace the new elevated energy


As this decade begins, January brings with it a powerful, busy, and super-charged month that will lead us further along our divine path and who we are truly meant to be. We are being guided to let go of that which no longer serves us and isn’t meant to be carried into this new year and we are being showered in the clarity to see what our soul truly desires to accomplish in this lifetime. Not only is our individual consciousness being elevated, but our collective consciousness is as well.

We are being guided to change our thinking, change our way of being, and ultimately create a new reality for both ourselves and for the world as a whole. The cosmic shifts and celestial alignments this month will be incredibly powerful and can lead to overwhelming feelings and emotions, so it is important to make sure that we pay attention to our well-being and health.

Above all else, make sure to practice self-care and protect your energy. Embrace the divine in you and trust that the Universe is on your side. You are entering into your most abundant chapter yet.

To assist & help you to step into this new cycle with more clarity and grace we have created a New Decade channeled guided meditation. Tap to Access.

New Moon Solar Eclipse In Capricorn – December 26, 2019

On December 26th at 12:17am EST, we will experience our last eclipse of the decade as the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun and showers us in powerful celestial energy that is here to help propel us into an abundant 2020.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon, Sun, and Earth align, and a portion of the Earth becomes engulfed in the shadow of the Moon as it blocks sunlight from touching down on its surface.


A portal of completion and resurrection


This Solar Eclipse falls in conjunction with the Capricorn New Moon, creating a portal of completion and resurrection. We will be stepping into a great awakening making it easier to level up and move forward and providing us with the clarity that we need to see and learn from the world. This Solar Eclipse marks the end of a cycle that began on July 2nd and is one of the greatest eclipses we have experienced in a long time due to its deep-rooted connection to Jupiter. The effects of this are incredibly powerful and will last approximately six months instead of the usual four weeks.

This Eclipse is surrounded in growth, abundance, and good fortune and blesses us with the opportunity to make the positive changes that we need to make in order to move into 2020 with confidence and excitement. We are being asked to reflect back on all of the progress that we have made this year and this entire decade and radiate our gratitude back into the Universe. Real change has happened for us and we no longer have the time to harbor that which no longer serves our souls or humanity. With each passing day we are getting more and more in sync with the divine timing of our physical reality. 


Time to spread the wings and fly high towards new exciting and magical beginnings


With this Solar Eclipse conjunct Jupiter, we will be blessed with newfound enthusiasm and happiness. Jupiter is the planet associated with growth, prosperity, and good fortune so with its conjunction to this cosmic shift, it will feel like pure magic is in the air. The Universe is providing us with the energy that we need to spread our wings, soar to new heights, and experience all that life has to offer. This is a time for expansion of self and starting something new.

We will feel a tug at our heartstrings to grow spiritually and develop a deep understanding of our soul’s true nature. Every possibility and opportunity is at your fingertips and the cosmos is aligning for you. Believe in your divine connection to everything around you, believe in the magic that radiates from your being, and watch the world unfold before you in perfect synchronicity.

The aspect of this Solar Eclipse trine Uranus further amplifies this abundant energy by heightening our sense of intuition and providing us with the flashes of insight that we have been seeking. All that you have been praying for is about to come to fruition and you are about to experience the most exciting and uplifting time of your life. This celestial aspect is incredibly powerful because it helps to unleash your true self into the world.

You’re going to surprise yourself with just how much love and prosperity you can bring to this world and everyone around you when you allow yourself to freely be just as you are. The Universe wants to help propel us into this next decade with the increased self-confidence, self-love, and sense of adventure that we need in order to realize our wildest dreams. You are about to leave your comfort zone behind and revolutionize your life. Chance encounters often lead to our greatest blessings.


Surrender. Trust. Flow..


Jupiter plays an incredibly powerful role in this Solar Eclipse New Moon. With Jupiter trine Uranus, we will get one final push from the Universe to let go of our expectations and trust in the divine path before us. If you tend to be a more conservative or shy person, this planetary aspect will help you loosen up and go with the flow. You do not have to always be in control of everything around you. Give yourself permission to just be. To just exist as a soul wanting to experience as much as possible while you inhabit this body.

Think of all that you have already accomplished. Think of all of the beauty that surrounds you and the incredible people that love and care for you deeply. Think of all of the progress you have already made towards deep self-love and self-actualization. Once you let go of how you expect your life to go and loosen your grip, you learn to trust in the power of the Universe and you begin to be led not by your mind, but by your heart and your Higher self.


Turn inwards, reflect, define yourself, lighten your soul and open yourself up to channel the abundance that this next year brings.


If you have been feeling any recent stagnation and have been experiencing anxiety, now is the perfect time for meditation and journaling as these can help provide you with a burst of newfound energy and bless you with a spiritual growth spurt and expanded awareness. 

During this final Solar Eclipse and New Moon of the decade, movements, changes, and shake-ups can unfold before us quickly as we are being asked by the Universe to define ourselves, figure out what we no longer need to bring along with us on our journeys, and set our intentions for the following year and decade.

This planetary alignment is all about completing the chapter that we are in, closing this book, and beginning to write our next one. We are being asked to turn inward and reflect. What have we mastered this year? How have we grown?

With the start of 2020 upon us, we are being taught our final lessons of the year. This is the perfect time undergo significant endings, question old habits, and make a fresh start as you do what is needed to lighten your soul and open yourself up to channel the abundance that this next year brings.

This is the right time to set your intentions for the year and watch the Universe present you with just what you need. We are making the last-minute changes that are needed to set us up for an incredible new year filled with promise, good fortune, miracles, and pure joy. 

To assist & guide you through this season of endings and new beginnings, closing 2019 and stepping into 2020, we have created a New Moon Solar Eclipse channeled guided meditation and reflections/intentions journal. Tap to Access.
