2020 may be the Year of the Rat, but that does not mean life will be as grey as a rodent’s fur. With the new decade rolling out, now is the best time to start festively decorating your home or even yourself. Bear in mind that this is not the equivalent of needing to amp up your feng shui game, because the simplest thing you can do to help keep the positive vibes going is adhering to the rules of colors and luck, related to that of Chinese superstitions. Below is a brief guide that tells enough about 2020’s lucky colors.
As some of you know, 2020 is the Year of the Metal Rat, and despite what most would imagine, the colors are not always connected to the behavior of the animal or the accompanying attribute. In fact, those familiar with Chinese astrology will know that the metal element is associated with two colors: Yellow/Gold and White.
Yellow represents creativity and class, while white is more closely associated with most forms of metal. In relation, it is also known as the color of wealth. Meanwhile, “Rat” is linked to the color blue, which is believed to represent loyalty and positivity. With all three combined, they are a swirl of colors that represents a long, financial success.
You can utilize these colors in any way you want, whether through clothing, accessories, or as a way of life. You should try and have the house painted as a way to make a statement that the start of the new decade has come, and you are ready to take on its challenges. That way, you would be living in a home that is blessed with the colors of luck and money.
Don’t forget that the date for the Chinese New Year is set to take place on January 25, 2020, which is a bit earlier than 2019’s date. Get creative with these colors and have fun implementing them!
