About the Chinese Year

    In Chinese Astrology, the Chinese calendar has a twelve year cycle and each year is named after an animal forming the 12 animal signs. All information about time year, month, day and hour are presented in terms of the five basic elements metal, water, wood, fire and earth, which represents the basic components of everything in the Universe. The year 2008, in the Hsia calendar, is symbolized by two elements with earth sitting on top of water.

The Rat belongs to the strongest water element and it is the first of the 12 animal signs. It also represents the beginning of a new 12 years cycle. The Year 2008 is a Chinese Brown Earth Rat Year. As Earth is equivalent to the colour brown in the Five-Element system, 2008 is also called the Brown Rat year.
