In the Chinese lunar calendar, each year is associated with one of five transformations: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water.
The transformations represent the cycles of the natural world, and are believed to interact with each other in complex and subtle ways, sometimes encouraging each other and at other times restraining one another.

Each transformation is associated with certain qualities and characteristics and are believed to have a profound influence on the energy and character of the year.

This new lunar year is a Water year. The negative aspect of the Water element relates to overwhelm, being out of our depth, fear and anxiety. The positive aspect of the Water element is associated with qualities such as fluidity, adaptability, being able to flow with situations. Water is deep and mysterious and has cleansing and purification properties. Water is renewal. Water is life.

Each new lunar year is also associated with one of 12 zodiac animals. The rabbit is one of these animals. The rabbit is the fourth animal in the Chinese zodiac.
