What the Year 2020 Has in Store for You, According to Your Chinese Zodiac

A new year is going to be here soon and being aware of the challenges and opportunities will help us.

Chinese horoscope follows the lunar year that will begin from January 25, 2020 and end on February 11, 2021. The Chinese zodiac follows a 12-year cycle with each year represented by a specific animal. 2020 is the year of the White Metal Rat and it will affect the 12 zodiac signs differently. 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, and 2008 were also the years of the rat previously.

The Chinese New Year is celebrated just like Christmas where families come together to spend time. There is no fixed date for the Chinese New Year as it follows the lunar calendar. However, it usually falls between January 21st and February 20th of the Gregorian calendar, according to Travel China Guide.

Let's take a look at what 2020 will bring for you:
