Chinese Horoscope - The End of COVID-19 Pandemic Panic
2020 is the year of Yang Metal Rat . The Rat year started on February 4, 2020. It's Yin Earth Pig year before February 4, 2020. Zodiac Pig contains Yang Water and Yang Wood . Wuhan coronavirus was discovered in December of 2019, which is the Yang Fire Rat month. Rat is Yin Water, which is the cold water. Therefore the coronavirus should have a connection with Water. 2020 is the Metal Rat year. Metal is the mother element of Water and can protect water from running away. Therefore, COVID-19 will survive a long time in 2020.
The Hexagram Signs of I-Ching Oracle
Yang Metal of 2020 is connected to the strong Wind. Rat of 2020 is Water. The sign of Yang Metal Rat in I-Ching is Wind over Water. When the wind blows over water, it creates water waves, dispersion. That is a sign of scattered people or unfocused-mind people. The dispersion will cause some damage first. Since water will reunite eventually, it just needs time to regroup the dispersed mind back to an integral mind. That means a calm and persistent approach is required to overcome the obstacles. Then we can stay away from the danger.
Yang Metal is also related to an extremely powerful weapon or energy. Yang Metal of Five Elements is associated with the Sky of I-Ching. The sign of Metal Rat is Sky over Water in I-Ching. It's a sign of the dispute for the needs. That implies that a strong heart for the victory in the argument will put yourself in danger. If the dispute won't stop, it might cause a war.
A function of the Wind is to travel and spread the seeds. A weapon of Yang Metal is preparing for a battle. The Water of River is the danger. Water from the sky is the rain, which is connected to the needs. We need a cautious manner to stay away from danger. We need to unite together to overcome the dangerous environment.
Identify the Element of the Virus
In Chinese Five Element Astrology, Yang Metal of 2020 is connected to dry air or lung. The Rat is connected to cold water or cold weather. They said the current global spread of the coronavirus shows that it prefers cool and dry climates. Or we can say warmer temperatures and more humid conditions could slow the spread of coronavirus. The major event in 2020 is the coronavirus pandemic. 2020 is a strong water year. That tells us the coronavirus is something to do with the water.
The Lancet journals reported, "The Health Commission of Hubei province, China, first announced a cluster of unexplained cases of pneumonia on December 31, 2019." That confirmed the spread of infection started in December 2019. The first known case in the U.S. was confirmed on January 20, 2020, in a man who returned from Wuhan.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) website posted the first confirmed COVID-19 case in China was on December 8. The Lancet said the earliest infected patients in Wuhan were treated on December 1, 2020. However, according to the South China Morning Post, the first case of COVID-19 can be traced back to November 17, 2020, based on unpublished Chinese government data. The Chinese government cannot confirm that is the 'patient zero'.
November 2019 is the Wooden Pig month. 2019 was the Earth Pig year. Pig is in the Water group. November 2019 is a strong Water month. Since coronavirus is so active and aggressive in the strong water of 2020, the major element of the COVID-19 should be the water. Now we want to use the Water element to represent COVID-19 and study its life cycle.
In 1984, Master Si-Ying, a Taiwanese fortuneteller, published his Chinese astrology theory to predict the beginning date and ending date of an event. He can precisely predict the exact verdict date of a lawsuit, exact discharge date of jailing, exact recovery date from sickness, etc. However, we cannot do that because we don't have the birthday of the COVID-19. Here, we just want to predict the ending month of the coronavirus crisis. In other words, we assume the COVID-19 crisis will last for months, not years.
Traditionally, the first month of the Chinese astrology is the Tiger month, which starts around February 4 each year. Master Si-Ying uses a different approach. 2019 is the year of Yin Earth Pig. Yin Earth of 2019 started at Yang Earth Dragon month, April 2019. It ended at Yang Wood Dog month, October 2019. Pig Water of 2019 started at Yin Wood Pig month, November 2019. It ends at Yin Metal Snake month (May 2020), Yang Water Horse month (June 2020) or Yin Water Sheep month (July 2020).
The Life Cycle of the Water
Five Elements have their rise, peak and fall periods during the year. The 12 life cycles of Five Elements help us to understand the strength of elements in the astrological months. We think the major characteristics of COVID-19 is water. COVID-19 was probably born in November Pig month of the Earth Pig Year. Pig contains Yang Water. If Yang Water represents the COVID-19, then Yang Water at Snake month (May) is the Vanish cycle. May of 2020 is Yin Metal Snake month. Yang Metal is a strong wind. Yin Metal is connected to slow air current, dirty air or virus. Snake contains Yang Fire, which is the sun. The heat of the sun can kill the virus.
Coronavirus started to outspread European countries and the USA a little bit late. The first US infected in the U.S. was on January 20, 2020. Water in December 2019 and January 2020 is the Yin Water. If Yin Water represents the COVID-19 for the western countries, then Yin Water at Horse month (June 2020) is the Vanish cycle. Yin Water at Sheep month (July 2020) is the Tomb cycle.
Therefore, the crisis of COVID-19 pandemic could be under control in June 2020 or July 2020. China might end the panic before European countries and the USA.
UPDATE: People fear death because there is currently no vaccine or preventative treatment for COVID-19. We should focus on the mortality rate, the percentage of deaths over the infected cases. Some countries suppress COVID-19 spreading well. The mortality rate of New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, Taiwan, Vietnam, Israel, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, etc. is lower than 2% by June 2020. Their businesses are running. Stay At Home order is gradually removed. Wearing face masks in public is not required for healthy people.
US government is gradually reopening the business in June 2020. Although the infected number is slightly rising. By June 22, 2020, the US mortality rate dropped down to 5.12% from 6% in May 2020. We are expecting an even lower mortality rate in July of the summer. That means Americans can receive the proper treatments for COVID-19 under US medical resources.
The above is the Master Si-Ying's months-event approach. The event duration is about six months window. If the crisis of the pandemic still exists during the autumn, which is the season of the Metal, then the coronavirus pandemic becomes a years-event. To calculate the event duration using the years-event approach is required everybody's current Chinese Astrology Major Cycle.
Note: Yang Metal of 2020 starts at Metal Dragon month, April 2020. It will end at Fire Dog month, October. Rat Water of 2020 starts at Fire Pig month, November. It will end in Wooden Horse month, June 2021 or Wooden Sheep month, July 2021.
The Future Impact of the Coronavirus
The Metal of 2020 is a strong wind and the Rat of 2020 is cold rain. The dark side of the Metal Rat is connected to the hurricane. It could blow and wash away our properties and lives. It's an opportunity for us to rethink, rebuild and restart our lifestyles from the lesson of the Coronavirus. People might need to apply more A.I. and robot technology to minimize the next pandemic disease. Then humans can evolve again to a new civilization.
Everything appearing in this world should have a reason. So is COVID-19. It seems a awaken call to humanity. COVID-19 is challenging human's civilization. Fears of COVID-19 are falling from the sky. Everybody needs to stop, listen and respond to its messages. COVID-19 forces people staying home, changing hygiene habit and avoiding travel. Although COVID-19 brings the big hit on business and our income, our world becomes much quieter without people gathering and much cleaner without air pollution. COVID-19 speaks for Mother Earth. We should allow its existence. We very wish it become benign and harmonious to humans.
We owe millions of thanks to the doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, emergency room professionals, manufacturers for medical equipment - heroes on the front line of the coronavirus combat. To support our heroes is to stay home, stay clean, stay healthy and pray for healing the world with love and peace.
