A Rat Dilemma – What to Do?
Should I be starting things or finishing things this month? Rat is the first sign of the Chinese Zodiac. It's associated with entrepreneurs and starting new projects. But, it's a winter sign. And it closes out the calendar year. A contradiction?
It is, and it isn't. Many cycles affect our lives. Think about this. Let's say the Chinese Almanac says it's a great day for new beginnings. And now it's 11pm, time to go to bed, not a time for new beginnings. The Almanac is not wrong. It is that we have to consider more than one cycle.
Back to our dilemma. Well I look at the four seasons before the month sign. The Rat is the second, winter sign. It's a time to rest and to plan for the coming spring. And, yes, planning is a Rat strength. Think about it. Beginning a plan is a beginning. Beginning to revise a plan is a beginning. So is beginning to get ready for the coming holidays.
I don’t know about you, but I always seem to be busy during this time of year. And, that’s what the Rat does. It’s not only the first, but also maybe the most active sign of the Chinese Zodiac. That’s the opposite of what we might expect from a winter sign. Welcome to the real world. If Chinese Astrology seems confusing, even contradictory, at times, it’s because that’s how it is in life.
And I’m not done yet. I never forget there are two parts to a Chinese sign. It’s time to look at Metal, this month’s element. Bang! Immediately a contradiction. Rat is a Water sign, flexible, flowing, and goes around obstacles. Metal is solid, determined, and beats down obstacles in its way. So, what exactly is this month’s energy?
Good news. First let me say. Almost everything in life is about relationships. I’m happy to say the relationship between this month’s Metal and the Rat’s element, Water, is very favorable. And guess what else the Rat and Metal have in common? They are both associated with money, with making money. From this we can see how to make good use of both energies. Use Water’s flexibility and nimbleness to identify opportunities. Then pursue them with Metal’s determination and focus.
We have a choice. Do we want to see dilemmas or an opportunity here? Chinese Astrology always unlocks opportunity. It does this by focusing on timing. It also calls us to use all available energies to achieve our goals. Finally, it reminds us to consider relevant relationships.
I intend to have a good month, to enjoy the holidays, and to spend some time making money. Crypto has had a nice pullback lately. Maybe it’s time. I hope you too can make some money in the coming days. I believe in you. And, of course, get out and have some fun. This is a year we all probably want to celebrate its coming to an end. I’m definitely going to close it out with a big party. You don’t have to be a happy Pig like me to put on your party hat.
