•The Story of the Rat in the Chinese Zodiac
The Rat is the first of the 12 zodiac animals in the Chinese astrology. It is a highly admired animal sign in the Chinese culture because of its spirit, intelligence, alertness, gracefulness, flexibility, and vitality. Chinese Zodiac legend tells of a great race, hosted by the Jade Emperor, the Emperor in Heaven in Chinese folklore. The first 12 animals that would arrive at the gathering site will represent the Zodiac and in the order that they arrived.
Early on his way to the site, the rat saw the ox that was going much faster than he was. The witty rat convinced the ox to let him ride on his back on the way to the race. In exchange, the rat will sing for the ox as they travel together. When they reached the site, the rat quickly slid to the front and won the race.
•Why Unlucky Events Seem to Happen in 2020 Year of the Rat
The Year of the Rat should seem promising because the rat is a winner in the race and many of us want to be number one! However, many people now feel averse toward 2020 and the Year of Rat (and understandably so), because of the many inauspicious events that happened in the first quarter of this year. There is the coronavirus pandemic that killed more than 377,000 people as of writing and stopped everyone from living a normal life all over the world. Then, just as depressing are the following: the massive bushfire in Australian outback; a Ukrainian flight that crashed in Iran in January, killing all 176 passengers on board; escalating US and Iran tensions, billions of locusts that swarmed in East Africa and South Asia; the devastating floods in Indonesia taking the lives of 66 people and the homes of 400,000 others, the volcanic eruption in the Philippines that resulted in 39 deaths; the demise of world renowned basketball player Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash, the communal riots in India that killed 53 people, and the 6.7 magnitude earthquakes in Turkey and the Caribbean.
With all the shocking and unfortunate events that happened at the beginning of the year, it is easy to get dismayed and conclude that the rest of 2020 is all doom and gloom. However, knowing that the animal zodiac Rat symbolizes a new beginning, we can understand why all these seemingly ill-fated events are happening. The Year of the Rat signals the new cycle of animal years, and so many life-changing events can occur to make way for rebirth. As the saying goes: “gone with the old, in with the new.”
•A Golden Rat Will Bring Luck No Matter What’s Going on in the World
Of course we want to be part of new world, and have luck and safety on our side while all these pruning and fine-tuning are happening to make way for the new. And having the Golden Rat statue in your home could be one of the keys to get that fresh start. Placing a golden rat statue at home or at the workplace can bring boundless prosperity and energy. It will also increase all the good traits and abilities of family or work members born in the year of the Rat, and those whose animal sign are compatible to the Rat: Ox, Dragon, and Monkey.
The 2020 Year of the Golden Rat – Chinese Zodiac Collectible Statue decorative figure is meticulously designed and digitally sculpted to achieve an elegant look worthy of art appreciation and collection. Its golden color blends well with most high end interior designs and home décor.
