Metal Rat 2020

2020
CHINESE NEW YEAR of the METAL RAT
January 25, 2020 ~ February 12, 2021

According to an ancient legend, the Rat was the first of the Chinese ‘Animals’ to reach the Jade Emperor’s party to which all Twelve Animals had been invited. The Emperor had decreed that the first one to arrive will forever begin the cycle of the year. The smart Rat managed to arrive first by a bit of trickery. He rode on the back of the mighty Ox, in order to swim the river and jump to the other side before everyone else.

Since then the Rat always begins a new cycle of the Twelve Years Chinese Zodiac. 2020 though is an even more important new beginning because, after sixty years during which the Twelve Animals belonged to the Earth Element (there are Five Elements in Chinese Cosmology), from this year onward the focus will shift to the Metal Element and will continue to do so for the next sixty years.

From the above it is obvious that the Rats of this world (people born in 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008 and 2020) are clever, taking advantage of all opportunities that appear on their horizon, their instincts very alert. They are also charming, vivacious, energetic, witty and mentally flexible. They are full of initiative and optimism too, but cautious and practical as well, a great combination to succeed in all manner of enterprise. Despite their abundance of vitality Rats also enjoy the quiet life, after gaining the comfort they crave.

The Metal Element in Chinese Cosmology adds tenacity and will power to each one of the Twelve Animals, with the risk of becoming too rigid and inflexible at times. On the positive side this Element enhances self-confidence and also instills a natural respect for others.

In the Year of the Rat we can all be a bit more alert to new opportunities and clever in managing our resources. Like the Rat did to come first in the race we may have more chances to succeed by thinking out of the box, thus finding solutions to our problems we could not envision before; and especially by remaining optimistic in the face of difficulties and setbacks.

Balsamic Moon Phase in the garden

    • Note that the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

The Balsamic Moon is certainly no time for planting or sowing, but it is ideal instead for cultivation and soil conditioning, slow release fertilizing, composting, mulching.
It is great week for eradicating pests and unwanted plants and also to prune in order to retard growth, but only if the Moon is transiting a Non Fertile Sign.

In the garden Watery Pisces is very fertile, particularly suitable for growing water plants, like Water Chestnuts and Lotus. It is also a great time for propagating cuttings, grafting, irrigation, pruning to encourage re-growth, but not potatoes that may sprout too soon. This planting however is better left for the period between New Moon and Last Quarter; and no planting/sowing done during the last week of the Lunar Month.

Romantic garden walks, music ensembles, yoga sessions, spiritual gathering, and relaxed picnics could do well too.

The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

The Last Quarter Moon is the beginning of the fourth and last waning week, before New Moon. We should stop all sowing and planting, and concentrate on soil conditioning, cultivation, slow release fertilizing and composting. This phase is suitable also for harvesting and storing fruit and vegetables; as well as getting rid of unwanted weeds and pests, particularly if the Moon transits any of the Fire Signs, or Non Fertile Earthy Virgo, or the Non Fertile Air Signs of Gemini and Aquarius.

Aquarius Moon in the garden

In the garden Aquarius, like an other Air Sign, Gemini, is considered too dry and barren for growing anything, but Pine Trees (?).

Its energy is suitable for cultivating, general maintenance and harvesting. Pruning, pest control, weeding would be better left for the third week of the lunar month, after the Last Quarter.

A ‘work day’ or other group activities in the garden will be ideal.

  • The following are the Edible Plants, Herbs, Trees and Flowers since ancient times associated with Aquarius, and also with Saturn, Aquarius’ traditional Ruler, the archetypal god of work, responsibility, old age, practical earthy wisdom, the ancestors, etc. As a Ruler of Aquarius Saturn also refers to the mythical Golden Age or Garden of Eden over which Old Saturn was said to preside, before the fall.
    In modern times Aquarius is commonly associated with Uranus too, its ‘modern ruler’. The affiliation with Uranus would suggest those plants in the natural world with eccentric or unique forms or functions, rare or difficult to find, growing in remote inaccessible places, like Orchids for instance or ancient cycads.
    Healing herbs and Plants used to alleviate high blood pressure, help circulation, clear blood vessels, heal heart conditions are also under the tutelage of Aquarius, which governs blood circulation in the physical body.

Edible Plants: Barley, the Brassica Family, like Broccoli, Cauliflowers, Cabbage; Quinces, Red Betts, Sloes,Tamarind,

Healing Herbs: Chamomile, Comfrey, Evening Primrose, Ferns (for coughs), Frankincense, Myrrh, Skullcap, Valerian.

Tree GlyphTrees: sturdy, resilient, often evergreen trees and shrubs, not in need of constant nourishment. Deep rooted, unmovable, dark, often solitary and ancient trees. Cypress, Fir, Beech, Elms. Trees that show their annual rings and therefore are associated with aging, the stage of life governed by Saturn: Spruces, Pines

Flower Glyph pinkOrnamental and Flowering Plants: Baby’s Breath, Birds of Paradise, Camellias, Gladiolus, Golden Rain, Hemp, Ivy Flowers, Knapweed, Magnolia, Monkshood (poisonous), Orchids, Orchids, Pansy, Passion Flowers, Scotch Broom, Solomon Seal, Trillium.

Disseminating Moon Phase in the garden

  • Note that the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

In the garden, despite the rapidly diminishing Moon light, the Disseminating Phase is a productive time for growing things and also to apply slow release fertilizer. The fact that these are the last available days for planting before the Last Quarter should work as an incentive to get going. Favorite plants to grow during this first week of the waning cycle are the Perennials, Biennials and Root Crops because the Moon energy is being stored underground in anticipation of the resting period not too far ahead.

Capricorn Moon in the garden

In the garden Earthy Capricorn is traditionally considered a Productive Sign, especially suitable for growing Perennials, Biennials,Trees and Vines. Any planting indeed that is meant to last a long time is well done in this earthy and reliable Sign.
It is also a good Moon transit to plant root crops like potatoes and carrots. Fertilizing, especially slow release, recommended too.

Plants like barley that have a cooling effect on the body are also said to belong to Saturn and Capricorn. Because Saturn is the bringer of overly serious and melancholy moods under his rulership are also the healing herbs and plants used to treat depression, nervous conditions, anxiety, insomnia.

Disseminating Moon Phase in the garden

  • Note that the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

In the garden, despite the rapidly diminishing Moon light, the Disseminating Phase is a productive time for growing things and also to apply slow release fertilizer. The fact that these are the last available days for planting before the Last Quarter should work as an incentive to get going. Favorite plants to grow during this first week of the waning cycle are the Perennials, Biennials and Root Crops because the Moon energy is being stored underground in anticipation of the resting period not too far ahead.

Scorpio Moon in the garden

Scorpio is a Water Sign and a very fertile Sign. Everything should do well when planted in Scorpio, if the Moon is in the right phase.
Scorpio is also suitable for propagating cuttings, grafting and deep irrigation. It promotes sturdy roots reaching down deep for moisture. Corn, squashes and tomatoes seem to like particularly to be transplanted when the Moon is in Scorpio.

  • The following are the Edible Plants, Herbs, Trees and Flowers since ancient times associated with Scorpio, and also with Mars, Scorpio‘s traditional Ruler, the archetypal god of action, assertion and conflicts. This is why plants with thorns and prickles that they use as weapons against predators are attributed to Mars and the Signs he rules, Scorpio and Aries; same for plants with hot, acrid or sharp taste etc.
    Another important connection is that of Scorpio with the sexual organs and functions. So medicinal herbs/plants improving sexual vigor and enhancing libido (aphrodisiacs) and those helpful in the treatment of sexual dysfunctions. Because Scorpio is also connected to the last portion of the intestines, the rectum, herbs used to heal hemorrhoids are also linked with this Sign.

Edible Plants: Chilli, Hops, Nettle, Onions, Peppers, Pomegranate, Radish.

Healing Herbs: Aloe, Barberry, Basil, Capers, Coriander, Don Quai, Ergot, Garlic, Gentian, Ginseng, Horseradish, Mustard, Nettle, Pennyroyal, Radishes, Sarsaparilla, Senna, Tarragon, Tobacco, Wormwood .

Tree GlyphTrees: Hawthorns, the Grumpy Oak, so called for its crooked branches, the oldest living trees in Europe. Palms are also attributed to Scorpio, due to their phallic trunk and abundance of seeds.

Flower Glyph pinkOrnamental and Flowering Plants: Anemones, Black-eyed Susan, Blackthorns, Cactus Flowers, Dark Red Flowers, Gardenias, Gentian, Heather, Holly, Rhododendrons, Scarlet Monkey, Yews. And all phallic looking flowers, like Calla Lilies

This Moon Phase in the garden

  • Note that the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

In the garden the Full Moon is a great divide: before the exact phase the increasing light and surging energy are particularly good for Annuals and above the ground crops; after the phase Perennials, Biennials, Trees and Root crops are more suited. Traditionally no sowing or planting are recommended however twelve hours before or after the phase itself. In this instance the best day would be then May 8, from 8.45 am until 5.15 pm, when the Moon enters Sagittarius. I personally like to take advantage of a great fertile Full Moon in Scorpio and sow/transplant during the whole Scorpio transit, no matter how close to the exact phase.
