The Year of the Metal Rat did not go so well last year. While some astrologers predicted prosperity and peace, many experienced something quite different. This year, people enter into the Year of the Ox with tempered expectations and a sense of realism. We have no doubt that the New Year will bring with it a renewed hope and strength, but we're also keeping our eyes open for things to expect.

In Chinese astrology, Rats and Oxen are known to be allies. This year, both astrologers agree that Rats will find more opportunities to connect to those in high authority. This could prove helpful, especially in the workplace, so use this influence and take initiative to start new projects or take on leadership roles. You might find your higher-ups to be more agreeable towards your ideas this year. While this could mean added responsibility, it also means an opportunity to create abundance for yourself and your loved ones.
Perhaps because of the ongoing pandemic, Rats should also be careful with their health this year. This includes your mental and emotional wellbeing. Issues such as anxiety might take a toll on you physically so perhaps it would be best to let go of things that do not bring happiness. Don't forget to always be kind and to choose forgiveness over anger, towards others and even yourself.
