Rat Energy in 2020

Gaining a Larger Perspective on the I Ching and Rat Energy

The Year of the Pig is officially over and we’re now into the Chinese Year of the Rat. The White or Golden Rat energy is yang (masculine), and started officially on February 4th, 2020. That means we’ve completed a 12 year karmic cycle and are preparing to launch into a new cycle. Rat energy is known to be active, fertile, filled with energy and industrious. Although Mr. Rat is generally friendly, he does have his downside, as all Chinese Zodiac animals do.  In reverse, they attract clutter, are self-absorbed and feel perfectly comfortable in unhealthy environments! That may be fine for a Rat, but that kind of behavior could be devastating for others.

The major consideration during this next year will be keeping your environment and thinking clear. Illness, outdated thinking and unhealthy patterns of neglect could be a real problem if you aren’t careful. By the way, all this fits in perfectly with 2020 being the Year of the Emperor within the Tarot system.

The #IV Emperor is about male authority and the effective (or ineffective) management of physical reality, particularly the land. It’s easy to see how the Rat’s management style has already made a pretty big mess and is likely to continue. 

How is Rat energy mixing with the current I Ching Flow – March 8th to 22nd, 2020.

So where are we right now? The I Ching flow split up into the multiple highways pattern again around January 30th (read more about that below). In the meantime, you can utilize the energy of #12 Rat from Gifts from the Rainforest to get an idea of what’s going on with you and what might be helpful. Ask your Self:

Rat Energy
Rat Energy – Gifts from the Rainforest
  • Are my thoughts racing? Am I too busy to stop and take a deep breath? (If so, stop now and clear the clutter from your mind)
  • Is someone meddling in my business in a way that will start causing problems if I don’t deal with it soon?
  • Am I overly concerned with what other people are doing, rather than taking good care of myself?
  • Are others being negatively affected by my actions or inaction?If so, call I tell what’s happening and what I might do to correct it?

The overriding message coming from Rat energy at this time is: “Clear the landscape of your mind regularly, because there is quite a bit of litter. Let your mind calm down and notice how the body calms down as well.~ Gifts from the Rainforest, R. Lightwater

What About That Multiple Highways Pattern in the I Ching Energy Flow?

Todays Intuitive Reading - Finding ModerationThe first time I experienced the “multiple highway” phenomena consciously was in 2009 and it’s no coincidence that the political and economic “flow” became very unstable then.

It happened again this last year between the end of May and the Solstice in December – another period marked with high volatility and political drama.

The best way that I know how to explain it is by sharing with you what Kuan Yin has shared with me through her Transformation Game called Finding Moderation in the New Paradigm. This is what she says:

“Let’s use the analogy that describes this period of time to a massive highway system that has thousands of different freeways available for you to travel on – or not, depending on what you choose…

Some of those freeways are traveling on the I Ching energy of Hexagram #6 CONFLICT, which is marked by a lot of sudden stops and starts, resistance and polarization. When traveling on highways of this sort, The Book of Change warns about trying to force issues in business, political or personal relationships. Forcing will only escalate the myriad of conflicts into an out-of-control mess. Better to step back and re-evaluate how you’re approaching your situation and make changes based on your true priorities.

A great number of other freeways are moving in the flow of Hexagram #26 DETERIORATION where things are falling apart at an alarming rate.

Another is #11, SHOCKING and there is a lot of CONTRADICTION #38. As you might guess, those who are traveling on these freeways are feeling unstable, confused and very ungrounded.  If this is where you are at, The Book of Change still warns against forging ahead with your plans. You will simply be advancing into #47 ADVERSITY or possibly even disastrous DANGER, #29. 

Luckily, there are also some freeways that are moving with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15, where ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The ancient Chinese text describes MODERATION as a the best way to make progress by disengaging from extremes and opinionated attitudes and follow the guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you are able to walk a moderate and middle road, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.

~To help yourself get into the flow of MODERATION, go through Kuan Yin’s Transformation Game.  

 ~ Important Things To do During this Time

~ Your chakras are likely to channel extreme and polarized energy, especially if you’re around a lot of electronics. It’s important to your health and peace of mind that your chakras be kept as clear and balanced as possible.

~ Don’t let the avalanche of shocking events or bad news threaten your mental, emotional or physical health. If you’ve experienced a recent shock (and most of us have) do something quickly to RESOLVE it and clear it out of your system.

~ A lot of people are worrying and fearful about the future. Misinformation, manipulation and chaos can pull you off onto one of those unpreferred highways! Stay grounded in the truth and use the power of your mind to control your own energy.

Other Things to be aware of

~ The “BS” Richter Scale will continue to escalate this year. If you’re not sure whether someone is lying or not, calm down and listen to your gut instincts.

~ Many people are realizing that their priorities have to change as they watch things deteriorate around them quickly! Take the initiative and repair your priorities now.

~ Because of recent public health fears, we can all benefit by becoming more aware of any danger that we might be exposing ourselves to and learning  what we can do that would actually help. 

“The time of DANGER can be especially good for inner development. By holding to fixed and virtuous ethics, by maintaining your inner vision and ideals, all things fall into a steady, tangible perspective. You will know your relationships to your environment, and in this way you can accomplish your aims. Although subjective, this perspective is now in accord with the problems facing you.” ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

Keep developing your spidey-senses! A lot of karma is being activated. It’s very important that you tune into your Inner Guidance and keep good energetic boundaries so that you don’t step into trouble.

In Closing ~

Check out the Transformation Games and Exercises below to help you keep your chakras in the flow of MODERATION until the multiple highway phenomena subsides.

“Your inner development now requires a modest and sincere attitude. Do not indulge in extremes of any sort, and instead strive for MODERATION in all that you do.” ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION  The I Ching Workbook, R. L. Wing
