Hi Friends. How is everyone doing? I hope you and your family are doing well and keeping your vibrations high.

With the increasing spread of COVID-19, I wanted to revisit my Yang Metal Rat Predictions made earlier this year, and see how they align with our current reality. 

I want to share this with you because I believe this will open up some new ideas about all that is going on right now and how all of it could go.

Let me refresh you on what the Year of the Rat means.

The rat represents the beginning of the Chinese astrological cycle. The rat is clever, opportunistic, and energetic. Being a water rat, it is diplomatic, persistent and futuristic.

The rat also represents the notion of planting seeds that will ultimately generate a considerable impact. 

The Yang Metal Rat only appears every 60 years and the last time we experienced a year like this was in 1960 (my birth year!). Let’s look and see what was going on in 1960 and draw some parallels. 


  • The first laser.
  • The birth control pill.
  • The first weather satellite.

All of these inventions had a significant impact on our world and are persistent today.


  • John F. Kennedy became president.
  •  The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) formed. 
  • The Peace Corps began.

These people and organizations have had a lasting impact.


  • The first televised presidential debates broadcast.
  • The Fantastics opened and ran for 42 years.
  • The Beatles formed.

This year is a time for all of us to plant seeds that will have a massive impact, not just a year from now but for many years to come. 

Coronavirus has left many of us in self-isolation, our politicians problem solving for new policies and procedures and our healthcare systems feeling the pressure. 

Everyone is on a journey of self-discovery right now, whether you like it or not. During our rest and downtime, we are with our thoughts; we are planting our seeds. 

So, what is the best way to take advantage of this time? How can we use it to our benefit?

  • Spend time on planning this year because the things you start planning this year will be amazing. 
  • Use integrity in everything you do this year. 
  • Be detail-oriented. 
  • Practice balance with meditation and self-care.

I invite you to think about what kind of incredible innovations will come out of this year. What will people be saying about this time in history 60 years from now?
