Well, I've still got a few months to go

to finish my 60 year cycle... can't say these aren't interesting times.

Anyway - Yeah, Year of the Snake! (巳年 "midoshi" in Japanese)

Might (or might not) also be the first full year of the Age of Aquarius:

"Some astrologers say the Age of Aquarius actually begins in 2012. That’s because they believe the star Regulus in the constellation Leo the Lion marked the ancient border between the constellations Leo and Cancer. This star moves to within 30o of the September equinox point in 2012, meaning that Regulus leaves the sign Leo to enter the sign Virgo this year. Presuming equal-sized constellations in antiguity, that places the border of the constellations Pisces and Aquarius at 150o west of Regulus, or at the March equinox point. By this reckoning, the Age of Aquarius starts in 2012."
