Significance of Sixty Years completion is found in astrology worldwide Traditionally in Japan, when sixty-first year is reached, they have lived through the entire sixty-year cycle of the traditional eto calendar of ten stems and twelve branches, and returned to the same year and horoscope sign in which they were born. The celebration of this not-small triumph is called Kanreki (pronounced kahn reh-kee).Kan means cycle, and reki means calendar. The celebration is also referred to as Honke gaeri “return to birth-year sign”.
Along with the 12-animal Asian zodiac of Chinese Astrology, each person is born under one of 5 elemental signs (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water). These two cycles reset every 60 years. The honoree has been 5 times around the Asian zodiac with its 12 animal years, and so we get 12 x 5 = 60. As a result, a person is said to be starting their second cycle of life at 60. So it is time for a second cycle of life for Indian Republic.
