Working with Universal Energy in 2020: Year of the Metal Rat

In Chinese astrology, 2020 is the Year of the Metal Rat and marks a fresh beginning of the 12-year cycle. Coupled with the vernal equinox, this is a double beginning this year, making it the perfect time for a life reset. From noon to 4 p.m., on March 21, the Metaphysical Center of New Jersey is pleased to present a workshop featuring philosophy teacher and 25th generation Taoist spiritual healer Dr. Mei Jin Lu, who will combine teachings respecting the vernal equinox and the Year of the Metal Rat. This is an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of Eastern healing modalities and will focus on planning important events.  

In this packed-full workshop, Lu will cover how the Year of the Metal Rat will affect people, society and the environment, including this year’s dramatic impact on thinking and behavior patterns, when to manifest goals and how to avoid negative patterns.

Additionally, she will delve into how the energy of the spring equinox can assist in removing blocks and releasing negative energy in order to progress. One can take this opportunity to renew interests and passions that have been hibernating through the winter. 

  Combining the symbolism of the above traditional observances of the spring equinox with the Year of the Metal Rat tips and guidance will energize the year and provide the tools to effectively plan important activities with a high confidence of success.
