Welcome to the Year of the Rat!
It’s meant to be a good year because the Rat is the very first animal of the twelve animal signs in the Chinese Horoscope, and it is also the beginning of a new 60 year cycle. So a completely new cycle is about to start tomorrow. Cycles are very important to Chinese people because this is the way of the world.
For example, in nature you have the cycles of night and day, months of the year and the seasons. In history you have the rise and fall of countries. And in a person’s life you have birth, life and death.
