Chinese New Year: Year of the Rabbit

2011 is the Year of the Rabbit, or Hare, ( ) the fourth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Sheng Xiao, or Chinese zodiac. People born in the year of the Rabbit are said to take on that animal’s characteristics.

With his graceful and nimble movements, the Rabbit symbolizes graciousness, good manners, wise counsel, kindness and sensitivity to beauty. One of the most cautious signs in the zodiac, the Rabbit is soft-spoken and reserved, but amiable, self-assured and articulate. Therefore, people born under this sign will lead a tranquil life, enjoying peace and quiet.

Possessing good judgment, flexibility and compassion, those born under the Rabbit will shine in the fields of law, politics and government. They are extremely lucky in business and monetary transaction. With artistic skill, their thoroughness make them good scholars. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

Before you think the Hare’s qualities reflect perfection, know too that he can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic and stubborn!
