Baby Rat 2020, Baby Ox 2021: Introduction

In this article, we begin by outlining the philosophy that underlies the precepts of Chinese astrology applied to the choice of first names for children. Thus, the role of the 5 elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) is fundamental in the choice of the first or middle name of a baby when using this method.

In fact, energy rebalancing is done by choosing a first name that completes and corrects the energetic profile of the child's Chinese astral birth chart. After having reviewed the specifics of the Chinese years 2020 and 2021, we suggest adapted solutions that will allow you to choose the luckiest first name for your child.

Baby's first name choice

It is up to the parents to name their children with a first name that shall hopefully contribute to their luck and fortune throughout their life. Chinese astrology is able to shed additional light on this essential step which marks for life the close bond between a child and his parents. For many ancient cultures and civilizations, it is customary to believe that the moment of birth is partly responsible for the character and destiny of the newborn. In this case, Asian peoples who make use of Chinese astrology generally consult the Chinese lunisolar calendar prior to a wedding, a major purchase, or a birth, in order to choose the periods most conducive for their projects to succeed.

How it works?

The role of the 5 elements

According to the Chinese horoscope, the prediction of future events is usually made from the analysis of the Chinese calendar, since it informs us precisely about the energetic constitution of the 5 elements of nature, based on Wu Xing. Each time cycle, hours, days, months, years, seasons and even centuries (a Chinese zodiac century lasts 60 years) are all governed in turn by a variable energy flow composed of 5 elements. Having a good reading of the interaction between the 5 elements during a given period is enough to predict the favorable outcome or not of an action or a project.

Correction and rebalancing of elements

Regarding the birth of a child, it is first necessary to identify the potential element(s) weaknesses or deficiencies present on his Chinese astral birth chart. The first name of the child is then chosen according to the analysis of his energy charter. The objective is to fill the energy deficit(s) observed on the daily schedule and thereby to recreate a balance between the 5 elements of the birth chart of the newborn. For example, a baby who was born one day reporting a Wood element deficiency is likely to be more fragile and more prone to bad luck during periods governed by the Wood element. That is why it is in his interest that his parents give him a name etymologically correlated with the Wood element, in order to neutralize the negative effects resulting from the energy imbalance that occurred when he came into the world.

Baby Rat 2020

The Chinese New Year of the Year of the Metal Rat of the Chinese calendar begins on January 25, 2020 and lasts until February 11, 2021.

In 2020, the Metal element is associated with the annual Chinese zodiac sign of the Rat, which is the animal that governs the lunar year. This is also the beginning of a new complete cycle of Jupiter. The cycle of Jupiter lasts almost 12 years and corresponds to the annual cycle of the 12 animals of the Chinese calendar, which begins with the Rat (Mouse) and ends with the Pig (Boar). A child born from January 25, 2020 is therefore of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Metal Rat (or Golden Rat, since the Metal appears in its Yang form). The Yang appearance of Metal is characterized by an exteriorized, luminous, expansive, active, innovative and precise energy. Whether in a birth chart or for any other purpose, an absolute Yang, devoid of Yin counterpart, can't be virtuous or beneficial. This is obviously true in the opposite situation. This is the very basis of Taoist philosophy, which is also found in the fundamentals of Wu Xing concerning the harmonization and balancing of the 5 elements.

Energy deficiencies of the year 2020

In 2020, the main energy deficiencies concern the elements Wood, Earth and Fire. However, none these three deficiencies are observable simultaneously during the year. The consequences and related risks of a deficiency of the Wood element in a Chinese horoscope can be a tendency to hyper-emotivity and phobia. Regarding the Earth element, it can stimulate paranoia or obsessive disorders. Finally all types of violent behaviors are possible when the Fire element is deficient in a Chinese birth chart.

Let's insist on the fact that the main goal of choosing a suitable name for your child should always be related to the elements' harmonization of his or her astral birth chart. Also, it is essential to have a good reading of the energy distribution of the day in order to make the most judicious choice.

Below you will find the list of corrective elements to take into consideration for each month of the year 2020, when choosing the first name of your child. Of course, your choice will be even more precise if it can also integrate energy data from the day of birth, in addition to the annual, seasonal and monthly specific data. Finally, do not forget the usefulness of the middle name when you need to add two elements to re-balance your child's astral birth chart.

This is the second lunar year following the Year of the Rat 2020 which marked the beginning of a new 12-year cycle. A child, boy or girl, born from February 12, 2021 will consequently be of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Yin Metal Ox (or Yin Metal Buffalo). The Yin appearance of Metal is characterized by an internalized, dark, cold and rather slow energies. Let's remember that whether in a natal chart or for any other type of astrological or Feng Shui interpretation, an absolute Yin, devoid of Yang counterpart, can't be virtuous nor beneficial. As a fundamental tenet of Taoist tradition, the Yin Yang theory is fully integrated in the harmonization principles of the 5 elements of WuXing.
