As mentioned in our New Year Blooms story, the traditional Chinese calendar of stems and branches is a 60-year cycle. It combines the twelve zodiac animals and the five elements: metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. A single combination occurs once every 60 years - for instance, this year is the year of the Water Rabbit. It is said that a person’s characteristics are dictated by both their zodiac animal and their element, meaning that even amongst Rabbits, there are five distinct personality types.
