The Month of the Metal Dragon of the Chinese calendar starts on March 24th, 2020 and ends on April 22nd, 2020.

April 2020 horoscope: the Month of the Metal Dragon
According to the Chinese calendar, the Metal Dragon Month occupies in 2020 the period from March 24 to April 22, 2020. Naturally, the periods ruled by the Dragon correspond to moments rich in meaning. Usually luck, growth and prosperity are the key elements that shape the main dynamic of the Month of the Dragon, the third month of the Chinese year. However, in view of the current global health situation, the monthly Dragon of the year 2020 is revealed in this month of April in its most lonely and conservative expression, focused on preservation. Because it is undeniable that the year 2020 started by striking the whole world with stupor.
While everywhere in Asia the Chinese New Year celebrations were urgently canceled and the Wuhan region was under cover, the rest of the world seemed anesthetized by a torpor as comfortable as incredulous, reassured by governments whose main concern seemed to avoid the panic that the revelation of their cruel lack of preparation might provoke. Hiding behind the word of the scientists, political leaders and televisions gave media priority to paternalistic doctors speaking of a "small flu" while insisting heavily that one should not "give in to panic". At the same time, pulmonary physicians, virologists and infectious disease specialists who had the impertinence to alert, from the end of January and the beginning of February, on the lack of preparation of their country and on the real dangers which weighed on the planet, were almost openly called charlatans, conspiracy theorists and doomsayers.

It seems that only Asian countries have so far managed to partially curb the destructive effects of the coronavirus. Indeed, harder hit by the SARS of 2003 than the rest of the world, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore or Japan and South Korea very quickly understood that they needed to take important measures, even if these were less radical than China.
While the Rat, the first animal in the Chinese horoscope is traditionally heralding the entry into a new 12-year cycle, and while the climate crisis already announced the beginnings of an inevitable change in our consumerist lifestyles, no one could foresee that this entry into this new cycle could be so radical. Suddenly, humans found themselves temporarily defeated in a few weeks by a volatile and invisible virus. Despite the warrior vocabulary that all the leaders of the planet seem to have adopted to announce their unwavering determination to fight this scourge, it is above all essential that all the states and the UN come together as soon as possible to act together. Indeed, a a lasting solution to eradicate this "enemy" can only be envisaged with intense and flawless coordination and mutual aid between all nations.
From the point of view of Chinese astrology, let us remember that the Rat (of the year) is an extremely resilient, inventive and intelligent sociable animal. The Rat's ability to adapt to unforeseen situations and environmental changes must be compared with his ability to take precautions in anticipation of uncertain days. Where the Rat is forced to show foresight and cunning because of his small size, the mighty Dragon tends to overestimate his abilities and take unnecessary risks. It is therefore advisable during the Dragon Month of April 2020 to curb any bravado instinct and rather listen to the advice to caution instilled by the Rat. Because the Rat is the Chinese animal most able to overcome difficult situations during which his living conditions change drastically. If the energy of the year brought by the Rat manages to temper the ardor of the Dragon of the month, then the latter will be able, in addition to his legendary luck, to give strength and courage to all those who will go through moments of discouragement during this troubled period.
In addition, the double Metal alignment observed in the Chinese calendar (Month of the Metal Dragon of a Year of the Metal Rat) allows all the Chinese zodiac signs which want to succeed in projecting themselves with serenity in the future to take intelligent collective actions and use their resources optimally, leaving little room for chance and waste.
Thus, during the month of April 2020 of the Metal Dragon and faced with this exceptional situation, the precepts of Chinese cosmology incite all Chinese zodiac signs to a phase of introspection, self-analysis and energy correction of their personal dynamics.
This is why, according to the Chinese horoscope for April 2020:
- The Rat (Mouse) decides to help the most needy after putting aside his stingy tendencies,
- The Ox (Buffalo) can find the appropriate tone to be listened to and become more flexible in the face of difficulties,
- The Tiger, usually so reckless, is exemplary of caution and even manages to alert the most irresponsible around him not to take unnecessary risks,
- The Rabbit (Hare, Cat) decides to put his prejudices on the back burner with all those who do not think like him,
- The Dragon feels able to guide lost minds without necessarily looking for a reward in return,
- The Snake gives fair and wise advice to those who do not have the same capacity for strategic vision as him,
- The Horse manages to show the example of the altruism necessary for the situation by starting by correcting his own individualism,
- The Goat (Sheep) shows an unprecedented sense of responsibility and even manages to be satisfied with what he has instead of complaining about what he might have,
- The Monkey uses his sparkling intelligence for generous actions in the service of the common good,
- The Rooster learns to moderate his language and rediscovers the simple pleasures of natural life, far from the temptations of the consumerist world,
- The Dog reassures the most pessimistic of his relatives and manages to contain his aggressiveness in the event of opposition,
- The Pig (Boar) puts the boredom of his daily life into perspective and even controls his emotional impulses.
Monthly energies for the 12 Chinese zodiac signs
On an energy level, the Chinese horoscope for April 2020 is marked by a weakness in the Fire element. This situation mirroring the surplus of the Metal element observed in parallel can cause frustration and increase feelings of isolation. This phenomenon can affect an individual's sense of belonging to a society or community. The Chinese zodiac signs which are deficient in the Metal or Fire elements can be particularly affected by a feeling of vulnerability which can in turn stir up impulses of anger or revenge. In this Metal Dragon Month 2020, it is therefore necessary to pay particular attention to any underlying bitterness and to focus more on one's own capacities to accept the mistakes made.
The most important thing is to learn from your own differences in judgment so as not to repeat them indefinitely. To reestablish a healthy link with one's own values and the truths that animate them, we must first identify the negative events when they appear, in order to resolve them before they take root. Metal can encourage people to go beyond their limits for the sole purpose of imposing their own vision of things. But an error remains an error, especially if it goes against the common interest. However, it is not worth the trouble to blame the past and to inflict eternal punishment on yourself and others. It is vital to be able to leave the past in its place while having learned the lessons of its experience. To overcome the energy weakness of the Fire element during the month of April 2020, one must be able to properly measure the extent of the consequences of one's acts. It is therefore necessary to start with acceptance and self-indulgence in the light of one's own shortcomings, while managing to maintain a quality dialogue despite the distance. It is only after this self-analysis exercise that forgiveness can germinate and that the somewhat failing balance of the 5 elements of Chinese astrology and Feng Shui during the month of April 2020 will be restored.

Money and career monthly horoscope
According to the monthly Chinese horoscope for April 2020 and given the current situation, it is paradoxically quite possible to see the volume of economic activity increase in all the sectors where teleworking can be implemented. If, on the other hand, many activities are hit very hard by the health crisis, in particular the aeronautical, tourism, hotels and catering industries, the adaptability and spontaneous mutual aid that are developing all over the world already allow us to observe the beginnings of a new, more fraternal and more equitable world. The greedy behaviors of the past, carried by states, companies and individuals little concerned with the preservation of nature and wildlife, are now likely to be seen very unfavorably around the world, to the point of no longer being tolerated. Finished and soon forgotten the morbid fascination that our society has had for too long for the obscene demonstrations of vanity of those whose soul is as hollow as their never satisfied narcissism.
Love monthly horoscope
In Chinese astrology, the Dragon recalls that in romantic relationships, human contact and communication are one and the same reality, or rather two sides of the same coin. However, because of the current Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot advise single people to be physically connected with new people during the month of April 2020, unless of course they already live under the same roof. Nevertheless, epistolary love can be the source of fiery relationships despite its platonic dimension, pending the better days.
Health monthly horoscope
In Chinese medicine, the organs associated with the Metal element are the lungs and the large intestine. Unfortunately in 2020, Metal energy is expressed in the form of a serious contagious disease mainly affecting the respiratory tract and the lungs. Also, the Metal Dragon Month and the following Chinese month, the Metal Snake Month, do not allow us to hope for a short-term improvement in the worrying state of the pandemic in the world.
Therefore, for any questions related to the current situation and the preventive measures to be adopted, follow the recommendations issued by the government of your country of residence and those of the World Health Organization (WHO), which is part of the UN. If you do not yet feel concerned by the current situation, perhaps because you are young and in good health and you are convinced (wrongly) that you don't risk anything, think at least of your parents and your grandparents, but also of all those who do not have the same luck as you and whose health is already fragile. The current situation is more important than preserving your old habits or hobbies. Be creative and invent a new warmer and more caring life despite a temporary but beneficial physical distance.
