You are a human dynamo, and the 2020 year of the Rat will give you even more energy. If you are actually sitting down to read this 2020 horoscope, odds are good you have a dozen browser windows open currently, all with multiple tabs. You're probably in a pretty noisy space as well and that's the way you like to do things. This is your happy place, Monkey, and don't ever feel that you have to change that. The mission for you in 2020 is to try and harness that energy around and in you for good. You're already doing that to some extent, but now is the time to make sure none of it is wasted. Think of this coming year of the White Metal Rat as the time when you become the power generator for everyone around you, bringing light, heat, and energy to make the world an even better place.
2020 is going to be a busy year trying to harness all of that. So you should go ahead and plan on being busy. Well, more busy than usual. Or it might feel that way since you'll be working on a very complicated project. That's right: you. Here's the problem, Monkey. The biggest criticism that could be leveled against you is that sometimes you spin your wheels, expelling energy with minimal results. Don't be offended by this. We have a hunch you already knew this. That's okay, it happens to the best of us with the best of intentions. If that's the only sin you commit, it's not too bad. That sad, it's time to stop doing that. You want your exertions to be highly productive, with energy exerted being very close to the work output, to put it in physics terms. So you are going to be spending this year working on being a better, more efficient human being in regards to the work you do.
January 2020 is when you need to start making a plan. Don't worry: you don't have to map out the entire year or anything like that. But you do have to ask yourself some hard questions, like: what do I want right now? Seems easy, right? Well if it were easy, you would have done it by now. Do you need to think about this across every area of your life? Are you happy about the job you're in? Are my relationships with others what I want them to be? Am I more financially strapped than I need to be? Am I in the shape I want to be? Seems like some easy questions, right? Well, you're going to find you struggle with these. Let yourself free associate a bit when it comes to tackling them. It's okay if you don't have complete answers, but start narrowing it down a little by figuring out what's NOT important to you. By the end of January, you should at the very least have a vague list of things you'd sort of like and some you'd sort of not like. This is perfect.
Love is going to reach a peak for you in March 2020. If you're currently in a romantic relationship, you're going to see big developments happening. These could be milestones (like a baby) but are most likely a mutual sense of your relationship having reached some sort of next level. Don't be afraid of this. Welcome it as the universe saying it's time. You don't need to force these developments, but as part of that January list of yours, you hopefully have a few things on the relationship wish list. Don't ignore these. Maybe it's a very good time to bring them up? It is indeed. Let yourself level up at this time and, yes, grow up a little.
Spring going into summer is where things start to go slightly haywire. It's going to be a bit like your ship has suddenly hit a mid-Atlantic hurricane and the steering wheel is spinning wildly. Don't forget that you often spin wildly, Monkey. So how can you match that action? That's right: grab the wheel and hold on. You're going to get your ship on course using whatever brute force you can muster. Late April 2020 is when you'll begin to see some of the signs. It could be mass layoffs at work, more arguments at home, or a stock market that won't sit still. It doesn't really matter. Know that you have the energy to handle whatever is thrown at you, so grab that wheel. By the beginning of June, you'll see things start to slowly calm down. Don't fall asleep at that wheel, though. Keep your hands on it and keep guiding the ship to where it needs to go.
If it sounds like there are a lot of global forces shaping your destiny this 2020 year, Monkey, you would be correct. Nothing is going to stay contained to one parameter. This is probably because of the nature of your personality: you never manage to stay contained in one box. And why shouldn't your star sign do the same? With that in mind, autumn 2020 is the time for you to reflect across every aspect of your life to see where you've been, where you are, and to prepare as much as you can for what's ahead. "Reflect" in this instance doesn't mean sitting quietly in a chair and not moving for two months. Rather, autumn is the time in which you're going to pull out that plan you started making in January and mapping your progress. Do your goals still make sense? Have you discovered that there are other things that are important to you that you really want instead? And if you've discovered that you haven't met any of the goals that you set for yourself at the beginning of the year, that is completely fine. Take that as a sign that you miscalculated, or just discovered new things about yourself. Congratulations! But don't stop there. If the old plan doesn't make any sense, you need to sit down and draft a new one, even if it isn't that different from the old one. Get yourself into the habit of doing this twice a year, Monkey. You're going to find it has tremendous results.
The end of the 2020 year is going to put you into a very powerful cosmic space. With stellar alignment at this time covering your back, you will be in a perfect position to take some chances, especially any that made an appearance on your plan. And if your plan went a little safe with nothing too risky listed on it, it's then time to add to your plan. You need to push yourself just a little bit further than you have previously. Start formulating that new plan in November, particularly around the second week. By the time December comes, you should be in a position to add some new challenges to your list. December also brings with it some powerful family and interpersonal dynamics that you'll want to be fully present for. Look for connections that you hadn't heard from in many, many years to reach out in the second week in December. Accept those connections and keep them thriving.
The end of the year also brings great social changes across the planet. While these might not impact you per se, Monkey, they are going to have repercussions across your world. Look to your financial picture to be rocked in December 2020 and the effects of this felt in your job. While there's not much you can do to avoid this, you can spend the year saving your pennies and being ever so slightly more frugal than usual. These sacrifices pay off when the time comes. We're not saying it's time to build a bomb shelter in your back yard, but it's good to make sure you're prepared for any possible disaster that might strike.
You have a lot of work ahead of you to take care of, but we have no doubt that you're up to the task. Your world is beautifully noisy and that stimulation should inspire you to make things work better for you. Follow your plans and don't be afraid to challenge yourself. You are capable of much more than you've let yourself do lately. Trust yourself. You are a powerful force in the universe with limitless power.
Were we to hook a generator up to you, Monkey, we could power a small village. That's an incredible quality to have and we would never suggest that you should temper or dampen it. What you do need to do, though, is harness it efficiently so that you're not throwing away wattage you and everyone around you could easily use. 2020 is the time for you to rewire your actions so that you're getting maximum power from your efforts and that nothing is wasted. This isn't about efficiency for its own sake. This is about making sure you have the resources to accomplish everything you want to and that your engine is up to the job. You are a powerful creature. The time has come for you to harness that power for good
