For the eighth successive year, the Chinese Heritage Association of Australia will present an informative, entertaining and illustrated talk on the Yin & Yang of the Chinese Zodiac. The Zodiac Cycle returns to the first of its twelve totems in 2020 - the Rat - from 25 January 2020 until 11 February 2021. In this Year of the Metal Rat, CHAA member Marilyn Sue Dooley will consider many rats from the 'fire-rat', an imaginary creature of ancient China, thought to live in volcanoes of the South China Seas, to the so named "Ratty" of The Wind in the Willows. The Yin and Yang of this year's Rat will be considered in aspects of literature, language and legend, myth, religion and society, in addition to its many faceted personality.
