New beginnings, new opportunities await Year 2020

According to feng shui queen Marites Allen, the Year 2020, the Year of the Metal Rat, is considered a year of new beginnings and renewals – new opportunities, love and business or career success.

The Year of the Metal Rat is the year that the Chinese Zodiac will have come full circle, with the Rat being the first sign from the 12 animal-cycle, and is seen to be a strong, prosperous, and lucky year and great year for founding and evolving. The years of the Rat are: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, and 2032.

During a press conference to announce the holding of the15th Marites Allen Philippine Feng Shui Convention, to be held on November 24, 2019 at the Novotel Manila in Araneta City, Ms. Allen said that during the convention, she will discuss forecasts on love, health, wealth, and career, ways to enhance the lucky sectors and downplay the unlucky ones, the meanings of special numbers, and how to tap one’s guide spirit.

She will also share how to have miracle mornings, how to create a “wealth vase” for 2020, how to do a vision board for 2020 and beyond, and reveal those that are on one’s destiny chart for the Year of the Metal Rat.

“It is very important that we create something for a new beginning. A wealth vase is actually a combination of auspicious symbols that you can put together in a vase and bring home before the Chinese New Year, so it’s good to have that before the year ends,” Ms. Allen shares.

Another must-have, she said, is the “vision board.” “When I started learning and doing feng shui in 2004, I also started my vision boards. Looking back now at the photos of people I wanted to meet along the way, I have met most of them. And those photos of material things, like a kitchen or a house, I have achieved them so I’d like to teach you how to do vision boards during the convention.”

Lastly, Ms. Allen cautions those born in the year which clashes with the animal sign of 2020. “If you are born in the day or year of the Horse, then you are in conflict with the Year of the Rat.”

The press conference also served as the launching of Marites Allen’s 2020 horoscope books, Feng Shui Almanac and Planner, the 2020 Feng Shui App, and the Frigga e-commerce website.
