The moody temper of the typical Western astrological birth sign of Leo is tamed by the influence of the Rabbit from Chinese astrology. When these particular people are born, they are believed to gain possession of the Rabbit's natural calmness. This generally dampens the impulsive, impatient, sulky side of Leo's. The result of the Leo Rabbit pairing is a lovely personality who is strong, but sensitive, and usually wonderfully calm and organized. The combined Leo Rabbit nature is destined to be mild, but not meek. These individuals are gentle and nonirritating, and they seem to have great control over their tempers and a non-confrontational manner.
The Leo Rabbit is a charismatic personality, but does not enjoy being in the spotlight. These characters are quite ambitious and usually do well in life. Their serene persona is charming and friendly without being overly loud and demanding. The Leo Rabbit has a useful ability to be able to get their own way without much effort and fuss. These personalities are subtle, patient, hardworking and persuasive in their mannerisms, as well as being very good communicators. This bunch of traits is perfect for use in many areas of work, so these Leos can often choose from a variety of career options. In family life they will usually be helpful, considerate, protective and sometimes a little too house-proud.
A Leo Rabbit has an intuitive sensitivity to the feelings of others, but will only offer assistance if they are asked. When they do give advice, these Leos do so gently and with high levels of tact. Having a Leo Rabbit as a friend is brilliant, as these types greatly value friendships and are immensely loyal. They are not normally loners, and tend to like having lots of friends around. These people have a responsible, serious side, but they do not let it stop them from having fun. They enjoy communicating and working with others, and are happy to share responsibilities and help others.
A wish to be liked, loved and appreciated is the main yearning within the Leo Rabbit personality. Throughout life, these Leos will search for the admiration of friends and a loving and appreciative soulmate. The Leo Rabbit is not as trusting as other Leos, as they possess a cautious trait from the presence of the Rabbit. It may take these people a little longer than most to eventually commit to someone and settle down. When they do finally enter a relationship for the long term, they do so with complete commitment and expectations of permanence.
Leo Rabbits seem to need a lot of sleep; they work hard and keep themselves busy, so they can tire easily. If these individuals do not get enough rest they can become grumpy. Their normal calmness may turn into coolness, and they may appear as detached and irritable. When the Leo Rabbit is tired, their general composed personality may diminish and they may display some slight aggression. The answer to this weakness is for these Leos to not go without adequate slumber.
