People that were born in the year of the Rabbit try to realise harmony in all areas of their lives. The luck that comes with the Rabbit sign allows them to succeed in this.
Rabbits have many means to prevail their surroundings in a harmonic way. The basic requirement to do so is of course certain sensitivity in dealing with other people, which they do have in masses. They are of all signs the one empathising the most. Sometimes it even goes too far. Rabbits are in the truest sense of the word mercifully. They feel the suffering of their fellowman sometimes stronger than they themselves.
Rabbits always try to smooth conflict and bring people together; yet they themselves always stay at the background and are very diplomatic. Generally the diplomatic ability of the Rabbit is quite strongly developed. They most always manage to bring the good sides of others to the outside, to mediate and cause the others to have understanding for each other so that everybody is satisfied eventually.
Sometimes, the striving for harmony leads the Rabbit to deny himself and losing his own self fulfilment and his own emotional development. Other people see him as balanced and harmonic but he himself suffers under great inner conflicts. Rabbits should pay attention of taking care for themselves as well. This does not mean that they should become egoistic. You can help others more effectively if you have come clean with yourself first.
People born in the year of the Rabbit are most often intelligent above par. It is not necessarily the technical mathematical intelligence measured at psychological tests but one that shows at every day's life; some sort of social intelligence. They possess valuable virtues and behind almost every Rabbit person you find someone with a big heart in which is much space. They like to be among people and most often have a big family to which they feel connected.
The love Rabbits show is beyond the love for the fellowman. He feels most often also a love for nature. He feels that he is part of it, part of the big whole picture. In our times where our environment is exploited and destroyed at which the oceans are poisoned, the air polluted, animals extinct and forests are cut away sometimes this connection to nature becomes a source of deep sorrow for the Rabbit. He does not tend to get depressed but the destruction of nature hits his heart. One possibility to meet this pain is for Rabbits the art. He is always talented in one artistic area and it is good for him to be creative. It belongs to his being and builds the balance he needs inside.
If the positive turns into the negative with a Rabbit it most often looks like the good qualities become unbelievable by exaggeration and seem affected. The generosity of the Rabbits then escalates into wastefulness and others get easily the impression he wants to buy their love. Even the sensitivity, the sense for family and the friendliness of the Rabbit can turn into the negative by exaggeration.
Essentially the Rabbit is a sign for luck not only for others but also at his own development he is mostly lucky if he uses his emotional intelligence to recognize himself. It helps him to quickly unravel prejudice - also the ones concerning his own persona - and throw them away.
A Rabbit managing not to solely concentrate on others but also on him is the embodiment of one of the happiest signs.
The rabbit represents yin wood. If the rabbit sign stands in its element you find in him the purest form of the rabbit. Since there are five elements a year sign can stand in (wood, fire, earth, metal, water) the other elements (letting aside the month, day and hour pillar) change this pure form of the rabbit.
The Wood Rabbit
This rabbit is introverted, generous and understanding, and sometimes risks being taken advantage of his kindliness. It is difficult for him to curb its creativity, which sometimes makes him depressive. But all he undertakes is doubtlessly under a good star. He is gifted for research and teamwork. He is neither a loner nor an adventurer. When you get to know him closer he learns to be less undecided and also shows humour, which he uses to drive out his unrest.
The Fire Rabbit
This rabbit possesses a big vitality, exceptional creativity and loves action more than the others. Despite his fascination and his willpower, he will always avoid the difficulties and conflicts from pure caution. As an expert in matters of compromise, he is capable to arrange a small intrigue in order to reach his goal. He is very intuitive, patient and understanding. He could have success with activities around the theatre-world.
The Earth Rabbit
This rabbit is very responsible, possesses imagination and converts his energy into concrete performance. He is independent and often a loner, the general hectic disturbs and annoys him. This rabbit is the opposite of an adventurer; he is domestic, a charming friend, and a pure introverted. He is sentimental in matters of the heart, loves security and hates inconstancy.
The Metal Rabbit
A robust rabbit which - at least sometimes - is a fan of violent and dangerous sports. He is essentially aggressive, which enables him to outstanding performances and executes his projects with a hard hand. Before he lets himself in on any business, however, he analyses, calculates and appraises in detail possible difficulties. Through this systematic analysis, he sometimes misses favourable opportunities. He is helpful, loyal, sensual in love and faithful in friendship.
The Water Rabbit
This rabbit is the most sensitive and most intuitive of all rabbits, who are equipped with an excess of charm, persuasiveness and imagination. This receptive rabbit possesses an excellent memory and can be given the most selective tasks. Notwithstanding, he is more suited for areas, in which must be thought, rather than acted. His mistakes: He is touchy, distrustful, sensitive, sometimes anxious and often distracted.
Rabbit-Born are people with whom everybody gets along even if there are signs that are unnerved by the constant balancing and harmonic ways of the Rabbit, for example the people born under the sign of Rooster. However, especially those could profit from the Rabbit's qualities - to speculate about that is idle - where love is not coming from logical thought. On the other hand you have to restrict the before said for the Rabbit: They would do well if they let not only feelings decide who matches to them. Rabbits seem harmonic and balancing but sadly they often tend to trying to make people equal. Most often they do manage to balance but even they cannot abolish the basic differences which are luckily between people (it would be sad if everybody would be the same).
Rabbits often manage to arrange a relationship that is not under such a good star in an agreeable way but both partners have to give up parts of themselves and their emotional development will be hindered. They often wish for a big, happy family and they are loving parents.
In the sexual area the Rabbit is a big enjoyer. He does not know prejudice here and is open for making new experiences. Actually he is not unfaithful if he receives enough love, attention and last but not least sex from the partner.
Rabbit and Rabbit
Two rabbits equal one soul. Hardly any other relationship rests on so many similarities as this does. From the first moment on the two rabbits understand each other blindly. What one starts the other will bring to an end and what one thinks the other will speak out. There is a lot of harmony between two rabbits so that outsiders could become sceptical, because where no friction there is any development. But that is not what the two rabbits care about. They already are on cloud number nine and have no more wishes for the future.
Rabbit and Dragon
The rabbit and the dragon is not a mixture without problems, the masterful dragon and the worrying rabbit. Often the somewhat submissive nature of the rabbit which has nothing to throw against the dragon's dominance unnerves the dragon because he cannot compete with the rabbit. And the rabbit feels being abandoned by the dragon when the dragon takes more care about his image than the sorrows of the rabbit. In critical times both live against each other. The chance of this relationship lies in learning from each other. Especially the rabbit will gain more self-consciousness.
Rabbit and Snake
Rabbit and Snake meet and fall in love with each other. They are connected by their yearning for the good and beautiful. Both treat each other quite understandingly and respectfully. The loving and tender interaction of those two will not even decrease over years. They enjoy every second of their relationship. Again and again the inspiration of the rabbit and the diversity of the snake will create new perspectives for a joint future. In fact both can become not only very successful in a relationship but also professionally.
Rabbit and Horse
The rabbit is impressed by the natural liveliness and the almost unabashed nature of the horse to put a spell on people and stand in the centre of attention. But it also intimidates him. The horse believes the rabbit is an easy game and does not really put an effort into the relationship because it lacks the attraction. Thus a relationship between rabbit and horse is marked by great distance in the beginning. However, if both give themselves time especially the horse will learn through the rabbit to take notice of the finer tones in life which is good for him.
Rabbit and Goat
Rabbit and goat, that is love at first sight. If both have found each other they don't let go easily because the mutually complement each other in their basic needs and both possess the same compassionate, tender care for each other. Even if the goat has a weakness for public appearances she would never do something that gets the rabbit's full agreement. The latter on the other hand would never deny a goat's wish if he can make the goat happy.
Rabbit and Monkey
A relationship between rabbit and monkey does not go smoothly in the beginning. Especially the rabbit needs to use his famous tolerance because the monkey will take the rabbit's patience and care as a weakness. The monkey won't let any chance go to trample on the rabbit's feelings. While on the contrary the monkey feels true love for the rabbit without any doubt. Perhaps the monkey likes to tempt the rabbit and to motivate him. The rabbit probably defers to it for a certain time but whether he sticks to it until the end of time is rather questionable.
Rabbit and Rooster
The reserved rabbit and the vain rooster cannot go well. Perhaps the rabbit punishes the rooster with disregard in the beginning and rejects his acts of courtship. The rooster on the other hand strings the rabbit along not to show him behind his very critical nature how much he actually cares for the rabbit. If this relationship withstands this constant back and forth it can become a true and very deep relationship in which each benefits from the nature of the other. Of course both really need to want it and have a lot of patience.
Rabbit and Dog
Perhaps rabbit and dog think that what both connects is something similar to a relationship even if it looks from an outside perspective rather as a lose togetherness. In fact passion is not the strength of this relationship. That should not disguise the fact that both share a deep friendship and infinitely trust each other. They also rarely have a dispute because each of them does not resent the other's style of life. Perhaps it is exactly this modesty which makes a relationship between rabbit and dog long lasting.
Rabbit and Pig
Regarding the outer circumstances of a relationship it could not go better between rabbit and pig, let it be the creation of the own home or the planning of the future, both complement each other perfectly. Basically the relationship between rabbit and pig has an ideal character. But so much harmony can also mean a standstill in the personal development as an individual. As hard as it may be for both it is important that both find things to do separately.
Rabbit and Rat
Between rat and rabbit tension can arise easily because they are quite different in their distinctive natures. While the combative rat likes to take any opportunity to define herself, the rabbit will perceive it as a rejection of his love. It is important that both learn to respect the needs of the other and not to devaluate them. Otherwise there is the danger to avoid each other. An open and value-free communication is paramount.
Rabbit and Ox
Rabbit and Ox are an unlike pair. Yet there is this attraction that drives them into each other arms no matter how often the relationship has been declared as a failure. The reason for crisis is quickly found. The ox quickly is fed up with the rabbit letting him pull out the chestnuts from the fire for him. In the beginning the ox may feel flattered but actually he seeks a partner he can also rely on from time to time. If this relationship should work the rabbit has to show a lot more effort in this regard.
Rabbit and Tiger
These two belong together; exactly because they are so different. The gentle and dreamy rabbit may seem a riddle to the tiger that thirst for action but it is a good antipole for his storm and stress. The rabbit gives the tiger a home without obligating him and the rabbit loves the tiger without any doubt. He will always let the tiger go when the tiger is drawn away. The tiger on the other hand would get the stars from the sky for the rabbit if the rabbit wanted them.
