Happy New year 2013!

The new year, 2013 has arrived!
We hope everybody is having a good time in the new year holiday.

It is the year of the snake in Chinese astrology, this year.
In ancient China, the equatorial line around the earth was divided into 12 geographical regions each one representing one of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. Those 12 parts are named after 12 animals names. This categorization was also used for the year, month, date, time and directions.

Those 12 animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, e Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
Rat means the start of everything, so it should be the year of seeding for your life, business, study and other things. Then, Ox is the year of “wait and see”; the germination of the seeds, which grow patiently. The next year of the Tiger is the time the seedling grows vigorously. The year of the Rabbit is the time the seeding grows into young leaves and gets bigger, the year of Dragon is the year which is supposed to be the time of plants sprouting.

Then, the year of snake is the year which plants grown up totally, and the period that plants seed start to be produced.
We hope you’ll produce a beautiful seed of dreams this year!
