According to the Slavic calendar, as well as the eastern one, each year corresponds to a certain animal. However, the cycle of the annual circle in Slavic astrology is not 12, but 16 totems. What patron does the Higher Power provide for 2020? 2020, according to the Slavic calendar, falls under the direction of the Spinning Mizgir (spider), which, despite its frightening and repulsive appearance, has its own special properties.
The ancient Slavs worshiped the forces of nature and glorified her wonderful creations. Gods and spirits were the personification of any element, natural phenomenon, plant or animal. Therefore, the years were divided into totems, each of which exerted its influence on the course of time and the person born in this period.
In modern realities, the eastern calendar, which meets the specifics of its region, is very popular. By the way, it does not start on January 1: in 2020, the Metal Rat enters into its rights on January 25. From this date begins her patronage. In China, they use the Gregorian calendar, which is also adopted in the West, but the lunar calendar has much greater practical and cultural significance.
And what is the year according to the Slavic calendar in 2020 and when does it begin? The ancient Slavs began to count the time from the Creation of the World. If we convert the date to date, it turns out that 2020 is equal to 7528. In the reckoning, Peter the Great made a metamorphosis in 1700 (7208 among the ancient Slavs). Then, by his decree, the reckoning of the chronology began to be carried out not from the Creation of the World, but from the Nativity of Christ. The date was also changed - the new year began to be reckoned from January 1. Earlier, the New Year was celebrated in September. Historians claim that there was a spring period of celebration, but in many sources it is September. More precisely - the day of the autumnal equinox (September 22-23).

Patron of 2020
According to the Slavic reckoning, in 2020, the spinning Mizgir totem rules. This animal stands for spider.

Misgir is found practically throughout the entire territory of European Russia, including the Crimea, the Caucasus, and part of southwestern Siberia.
In addition, in many cultures, divine properties are assigned to the spider symbol. His body has the shape of a figure of eight, which denotes infinity. Also, he has 8 legs, which continues the symbolism of infinity. All his life, a spider spins its web, creating a unique pattern. So the Higher Forces (or Creator) every day create a web of being in infinite space.
The power of the spider lies in the inexhaustible creative energy. There are no unnecessary movements in his work. Each of his steps is logical and contributes to the advancement in creating high-quality web of web. He continues to fulfill his mission, despite adversity and cataclysms until the end of his existence.
In Slavic mythology, the totem of the Forward Mizgir personifies the interconnection of past, present and future generations. An invisible web thread binds together ancestors and descendants, preserving and transmitting the accumulated knowledge for the further realization of the genus. Mizgir maintains a connection between generations, showing that each person is a part of a common canvas and is invisibly connected with each other. His task is to recall that the strength of a people lies in its unity and interaction. And only by acting together can one go along the path of development.
The upcoming Mizgir is the guardian of family traditions. It creates intergenerational bonds that facilitate the transfer of accumulated knowledge and wisdom. Thus, the strength of the ancestors flows to the descendants and supports the continuity of the genus.
