A question about Chinese calendar?

Question:How come sometimes there are, for example two eighth months, in the Chinese calendar? For instance, there were two seventh months in 2006. Is there a pattern? How do we know if there if there will be a double month next year?

This has been the pattern.

2006 => 7th
2004 => 2nd
2001 => 4th
1998 => 5th
1995 => 8th
1993 => 3rd
1990 => 5th
