In the Chinese zodiac the 12 animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig. Alongside the 12 year cycle of animals there is a 10 year cycle of 5 elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water with Yin and Yang of each. The elements change every two years and the Yin and Yang alternate each year. Last year was Yang Metal, this year is Yin Metal and next year will be Yang Water. All together the twelve animals and the Yin and Yang elements create a 60 year cycle.
This year is the Yin Metal Rabbit. Yin, being depicted as the darker side, in conjunction with the Metal element, I can say for certain this year will be The Year of the Rabbot!
