People born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rabbit make fantastic friends. They are gentle and kind, and are givers rather than takers. They do not enjoy being the center of attention, and usually end up being a rock for their more dramatic friends. Rabbits are extremely sensitive to the emotions of others, and always know what to say to help cheer you up. Because of this, a Rabbit is usually called upon when one of his or her friends is having a tough time and needs a sympathetic ear. Since Rabbits strongly feel what those around them feel, they have a strong motivation to cheer others up.
Those born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Rabbit really do not like conflict. They become very anxious if they are at odds with someone, and even hate to be in the room if two other people are fighting. Rabbits will avoid conflict at all costs, and have a talent for peacemaking. They have large vocabularies and can use their skill with speaking to convince others of just about anything. It is a good thing that their motives are always pure!
The Chinese sign of the Rabbit endows its people with intellect and creativity. These people are always thinking away, even if they are silent.
Rabbits generally have an affinity for books and art, and have quite the talent themselves! You may never know it, because Rabbits do not brag, but they are capable of some quite amazing feats!
Rabbits are cautious and careful, and always analyze every angle before committing to anything. As a result, it is difficult to find a hard done by Rabbit. Rabbits are known for being lucky, but the truth is that they make most of their own luck by avoiding bad decisions.
When the sign of the Rabbit is affected by the element of Fire, some good qualities emerge. Fire gives Rabbits a little strength to stand up for themselves when it is needed. This is good because many Rabbits allow themselves to be taken advantage of. A Fire Rabbit still has a giving nature, but he or she is more ambitious, and will take the time to focus on himself or herself instead of slaving away for others.
Fire Rabbits are more willing than other Rabbits to venture away from home and experience new and exciting things. This adds even more to the Fire Rabbits store of knowledge.
A person born as a Fire Rabbit under the Chinese Zodiac has less control over his or her emotions that other Rabbits. Where other Rabbits are usually content, and only anxious in the face of conflict, Fire Rabbits may unleash anger on others. These Rabbits are not afraid on conflict if it is for a good cause, and it is good to have a smart, honest, generous, motivated Fire Rabbit on your side! Fire Rabbits are charming and intelligent, and usually get their own way. A Fire Rabbit is a friend worth having.
