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.
