Welcome amigos, my name is Milena from,

Hope everyone is amazing and ready to kick some 2020 goals!

It’s not too late to plan your year amigos.

We’re still celebrating New Year believe it or not. So Happy New Year everybody.

In Australia we celebrate Chinese New Year too. Also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar Year. The way we celebrate Chinese New Year is we have festivals in the city. In most major cities in Australia.

According to the Chinese Horoscope, the year 2020 is the year of Rat.

If you’re born in the year of Rat, you’ll have some good fortune in terms of wealth and career.

What about the rest of us? Is the year of Rat lucky for everyone?
Apparently yes. It should be a prosperous year, should you see any new opportunities come up, you should make most of it. Maybe consider those new opportunities.

I know some of you are thinking. Why are you telling us this Milena? Why are you telling us about the Chinese Horoscope?
