The Month of the Wood Rat of the Chinese calendar starts on December 7th, 2018 and ends on January 6th, 2019. On December 6th, the new moon announces the passage in the Chinese calendar from the Water Pig Month to the Month of the Wood Rat of the Year of the Earth Dog 2018.
It is a dynamic and warm cycle during which the family ties are consolidated, coupled with an increase in the desire for material possession.
According to the monthly Chinese horoscope of December 2018 and beginning of January 2019, the passage of the Rat (of the month) in the Dog (of the year) announces a period of positive actions supported by an inflexible will to face the difficulties with more ardor and insurance.
A Month of the Rat is an opportunity to explore, delve into and analyze problems in depth in order to find the most appropriate solution to the events that affect our daily lives.
On a social level, one's self-image can momentarily become more important than usual. Elegance and sobriety can take precedence over pageantry and exhibition in order to display an image of stability and anchorage. In addition, the desire to imagine, conceive and give life to new ideas, based on positive and simple values, is definitely relevant.
When starting a new project, the need for approval from one of one's peers isn't felt as much as a necessity. The Rat possesses in him secret and varied resources that allow many new initiatives to emerge from the 12 signs of Chinese astrology. In addition, we can expect help and moral support when our endeavor is implemented. It is even possible to return an unfavorable situation to one's advantage and extract an unsuspected personal profit, provided necessary insurance was in place to begin with.
The only negative point to note for this period concerns the character of the two Chinese zodiac signs whose energies dominate the calendar of the month. It should be known that the Dog (of the year) and the Rat (of the month) have anxious natures. Therefore, care should be taken not to be overcome by pessimism in the event of a delay in the progress of one's aspirations. While hopes are immediate, good things always take time to mature and bear fruit.
