The year of 2022 marks the 39th year of the 60-year Sexagenary cycle, the year of the Tiger in Chinese Zodiac. Those born in this year may be referred to as the “Tiger in the Forest”, or ‘過林之虎’ in Chinese.
The Chinese Sexagenary Cycle (六十甲子) is an ancient method of calculating years, months, dates and time. Consisting of 10 heavenly stems and 12 earthly branches, a pairing of 1 character from the stem followed by another from the branch will derive the sexagenary number of a Chinese year. The 10 heavenly stems are each associated with the five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal, and water – while the 12 earthly branches are represented by one of the 12 Zodiac animals.
