Chinese Horoscopes - The Rabbit
Rabbits are private
individuals, a bit introverted and withdrawn. People e born into this sign
would rather work behind-the-scenes instead of being the center of
attention in any situation. Do not misunderstand…the Rabbit is not a
recluse. In fact, he is a reasonably friendly individual who enjoys the
company of a group of good friends whether at a business dinner or a
holiday party. Rabbits just like to be a part of the gang as opposed to
the leader of it.

THE SIGN OF THE RABBIT
Rabbits, like their
animal counterparts, are quite calm people who do not exhibit aggressive
behavior and will avoid confrontation at all costs. When angry about
something, a Rabbit will approach it calmly and considerately, hardly ever
raising his voice or becoming visibly annoyed. Because of their serenity,
Rabbits seem to miss things, whether they are confrontational in nature or
not. However, the Rabbit is quite keen and pays close attention to the
situations developing around him. He is intelligent and quick and can talk
himself in or out of most situations with no problem.
The Chinese Rabbit is
one of the most stylish creatures of the Chinese Animal Signs and finds
interest in different cultures. He is classy and sophisticated, and can be
found adorning one of the latest fashion magazine cover looks. Rabbits
also like artistic ventures, such as painting and music and are generally
quite present in these worlds. They love top express themselves, which is
evident when joining them at home for a function or a cup of coffee.

IN YOUR ELEMENT
of the Rabbit are tempered by one of the five Chinese elements of Metal,
Water, Wood, Fire and Earth overlaying a 5-year cycle of characteristics
on the original 12-year cycle.
THE METAL RABBIT
1951 AND 2011
Metal gives Rabbits a
more resilient demeanor than the other more quiet Rabbit. These Rabbits
are very ambitious and can be quite crafty in their dealings with others.
They throw themselves and their emotions into everything they do, making
them intense lovers, but not outwardly affectionate lovers. Their
determination can affect their work as well, whether through personal
relationships with colleagues or with the work itself, a Rabbit can be
known to immerse himself in his projects…business and personal.
THE WATER RABBIT
1903 AND 1963
Delicate and docile,
Water Rabbits will pretty well go with the flow to avoid any conflict or
argument. These situations hurt them and bother them because they are such
sensitive creatures. They are usually sociable and relaxed, although
sometimes they get withdrawn and introspective. They are supportive with
family and friends as well as business partners and display an empathy
that makes people flock to them for friendly advice and comfort.
Sometimes, they can easily be taken advantage of because they are so
generous with themselves and their emotions. So they have to be careful
not to let their guards down so quickly.
THE WOOD RABBIT
1915 AND 1975
Wood Rabbits tend to
be the least bit indecisive. This is probably due to their always wanting
to play the peacemaker and not wanting to hurt other people’s feelings.
Wood Rabbits are incredibly generous souls and like to avoid the spotlight
instead preferring to live amongst others. These people are always kind
enough to help you move into a new house, make you a hot cup of coffee or
to listen while you rant and rave about your latest character flaw. The
Wood Rabbit can sometimes be too kind for his own good, thus causing him
to be taken advantage of and sometimes even used by others unknowingly.
Rabbits have to learn to say no and to out their feet down or their cups
THE FIRE RABBIT
1927 AND 1987
Fire adds an unspoken
magnetism and mystery to the Rabbit. These creatures have a burning desire
to get out there and live life to its fullest. They are active and
adventurous and love anything that sparks their creativity or curiosity.
They can throw tantrums here and there, if provoked, but most of the time
they work very hard to avoid conflict or unpleasant confrontations. Fire
Rabbits are charming and tend to push their emotions into the backs of
their minds, but will speak up if necessary.
THE EARTH RABBIT
1939 AND 1999
The Earth element
gives these Rabbits a sense of reality and practicality that others don’t
illustrate so freely. They are able to give sound advice, which in turn
gets them respect and trust from those who solicit their counsel. They
take pride in their homes and work diligently to make them a place of
security for their loved ones. In the same breath, Earth Rabbits put a
great deal of value on material comforts and like to make money.
HEALTH AND HABITAT

sensitive to ailments and to have bad allergies. Stress or conflict will
detriment the Rabbit’s health. Exercise could take off unnecessary stress
