Year of the White Metal Rat

Chinese New Year

Year of the White Metal Rat

The Rat is the first sign of 12 animal cycles in the Chinese Zodiac. The White Metal Rat Year means new beginnings and renewals, a strong, prosperous and lucky year for all Chinese zodiac signs. This is a great year for founding and evolving. It’s a clean, fresh year—a gift—with no mistakes and no regrets. Set new habits to initiate actions you have wanted to do for a long time. Everything is possible; you are the creator of your own life.

Note: The Chinese zodiac year starts from Chinese New Year, which ranges from late January to mid February.  Thus if you were born in Mid January 1963 you are at the tail end of the Tiger for the 1962 year!
