During the 2020 year of the Rat, the character of Falstaff has particular resonance for you, Pig. You are a great lover of life, generous and indulgent in the best sense of the word. You've always been a delight to be around, perhaps even the life of the party. It makes no sense for you to change from this ever. But 2020 is the perfect time for you to channel those tendencies towards productive ends, perhaps in a way that will benefit the world. You might even want to start thinking of that part of you as your superpower. This coming 2020 year is going to be your origin story: discovering your powers, putting them to the test, and then becoming the superhero (or heroine) the world needs.
As much as New Year's is your holiday, all good things have to come to an end. Come January 2nd, 2020, you should clean yourself up a bit and maybe have a small period of detoxification. Don't worry: this doesn't have to be an extended fast or stay at a health spa drinking nothing but kombucha for a month. What it should involve is just being a little more thoughtful about what you're putting into your body. "Thoughtful" meaning: don't just operate out of habit. By all means, if you want to indulge, indulge! But make it a deliberate joy that you're looking forward to and that you'll remember. Heading to the bar every Friday just because you've always done it is out. You want to enjoy your indulgences and make them critical to your life. And don't think that this has to be your routine forever. But this is a good starting point for trying to make this a habit: a small break from your patterns. In fact, go ahead and set January 20th as a time to return to full debauchery if you'd like. You're going to learn to pace yourself.
February 2020 might be a slightly uphill battle for you, Pig. This isn't just recovering from the partying the month before. You're going to face numerous challenges on the work front that may have you more preoccupied than you'd like. You might find that your workload will increase considerably this month, or you have a work rival where you didn't have one before. No matter what's happening, you're going to have to be a little more on top of things at the office. Lest you think you're being singled out, note that things are tough all over. Your bosses are no doubt feeling some heat, as are the business owners. In short, economic waves are making everyone earning a living very tense. But there's some productive change that can come out of this. If you're at all been thinking about a change in careers, even in a period of uncertainty, this might be the time for it. Don't be rash with the decision to jump ship, but it's worth noticing how you feel in your current job as the heat gets turned up. If you don't like it at its worst, is it going to be worth staying there much longer? It's a good question to ask yourself honestly, and if the answer is вЂno', start the process of looking for something better.
This is a perfect time to bring your вЂlife of the party' powers to life. How? Nobody wants to be terrible to the person everyone likes. If things are getting tense in your workplace, bring your extrovert вЂA' game to the office and be extra friendly with everyone. This doesn't mean being glib and superficial, nodding and smiling a lot. It means doing what you do best: talking with people and actually listening to them. Remembering their names and birthdays. Finding articles on the web that you honestly think they'll like and sending them on. People - especially people in a tense workplace - need this. That human connection is crucial for reducing stress. This is that superpower mentioned earlier: you have the means to connect people and make them feel better.
Spring means a glorious time for the Pig for most years, and 2020 is no exception. The sun coming out after a winter's nap has always meant a mud path in sunshine for you. This is the perfect time for you to do an ample amount of self-care and take care of yourself physically. Self-care should be something quasi medicinal, like massages or isolation tanks and not something decadent and unhealthy. You want to enjoy yourself and relax, but also keep your mortal coil in tip-top shape. And to that last point, March 2020 is the perfect time to get yourself to a doctor for a checkup. If you've not been recently, make yourself an appointment for some of the easily forgotten doctor's appointments, like getting to a dermatologist to check for moles, or a nutritionist to devise a good eating plan. Whatever you do, think of it as a tune-up for your car plus a car wash. The massage is the car wash: therapeutic, but ultimately good for superficial needs. The doctor's visits are the tune-up: making sure the insides are doing everything they need to.
Summer 2020 is going to be potentially very financially lucrative for you, Pig, but with some warnings. As always, don't be rash with money and be rational when it comes to any investment decision. But these aren't the warnings you need to heed. Rather, you need to make sure you're not being too cautious when it comes to investing and saving. Didn't expect that, did you? The fact is, contrary to your personality in general, you sell yourself a bit short when it comes to your money. You could stand to stick your neck out just a little bit more. Nothing crazy, but you could take a slightly riskier position when it comes to your retirement investments. You could take an extra moment to consider putting money in a local start-up. Hell, you could go ahead and buy those green bananas. The point is, you have the wiggle room to take a few more financial risks. Otherwise, you're going to end up shorter than you'd like.
Once again, in 2020 your new superpower can do you a lot of good in this area. No, you aren't going to charm people out of their money, but your genuine interest in people, what they say, and what interests them means you are in a great position to talk to investors, entrepreneurs, or just people who want to make their money work better for them. If you're going to learn how to do better with your money., wouldn't these be the people to talk to? Find some local business-related Meetups or other gatherings that center on people who want to put their money where their mouths are. You're not looking for people who want to get rich quick. You're looking for people as eager to work as you are.
By the time the last quarter of the 2020 year rolls around, you should have acquired a healthy number of new friends or acquaintances. If not, don't worry. You haven't done anything wrong. The fact is, you do have a number of contacts made, but you just haven't met them yet. Contradictory? Not really. You see, you've met and made an impression on a number of people throughout the year, whether you realize it or not. You might not be in regular (or any) contact with them, but that's okay. You'll link up when the time is right. The important thing is for you to realize that: you have made an impression on great swathes of people. Knowing that fact, how does that shape the way you act? Or speak? Or think about yourself in general? Does that give you a little extra confidence in the decisions you make?
2020 Rat year is the year for you to learn to live with and master this superpower of yours, Pig. You're going to have to face the fact that you are one charismatic Pig and that most people who meet you are fascinated by what you have to offer. It's not conceited to take this in as fact. Here's something you should do to help bring it home: as you walk down the street, tell yourself that every person you see wishes they could spend some time talking to you. It's not a crazy thought. You're not imagining you're some wild sex god or anything. You are simply sitting with the idea that you are a fine company that anyone could enjoy.
You are and always have been a delight to have around, Pig. Everyone is excited when you walk into a room and when you arrive at a party, all the guests know that they're in the place to be. Now, you're going to be a partier with a purpose. You're a gatherer of human forces, a martialer of happiness to those around you, an energizer of crowds. These are fantastic, useful qualities that many people cannot tap into easily. Embrace your powers and use them for good.
