Chinese Astrology: Kuei Mao year, meaning Rabbit Running in the Forest.
The Sixty-Year Cycle Chinese Calendar: Earthly Branch Rabbit and Heavenly Stem Water.
People born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rabbit can be timid like their animal, but it doesn't mean they are afraid of taking on challenges. Rather, Rabbit people cannot stand interpersonal conflict. This is because they are very sensitive to the feelings of others, and easily overwhelmed if a disagreement turns into an argument. This is why it is never a good idea to corner a Rabbit person. Any disagreements must be discussed calmly, when both parties are relaxed, or else the Rabbit person will flee. Rabbits can even abandon personal or romantic relationships rather than experience conflict-that is how much anxiety they suffer.
Rabbits are quiet intellectuals. They love reading and learning, and although they are social people, they need alone time with their thoughts. Rabbits are very clever and cautious, and never jump into anything without thinking. Because of this, Rabbits rarely find themselves in danger.
Despite their caution, people who are born under the sign of the Rabbit according to the Chinese horoscope know how to relax and have fun. In fact, a Rabbit may invite you to put down your work for the day and enjoy him or her in idle pleasures. Rabbits never procrastinate on serious projects, but they do realize that you only live once, and sometimes you just need to stop and smell the flowers!
The Chinese sign of the Rabbit imparts creativity on those born under it.
Rabbits are lucky-they are born with one foot in the realm of practicality and one foot in the realm of creativity. A Rabbit's home is likely to be tastefully decorated with plush fabrics and furniture. Rabbits love to be surrounded by comfort and familiarity, and will not feel quite themselves if they are isolated from home, routine, or family.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the element of Water lends fluidity to those it affects. Any person who is affected by Water in their Chinese horoscope will be more willing to let others have their way, and will be less interested in conflict. Since Rabbits are already fairly docile and dislike conflict, a Water Rabbit is a gentle and easygoing person indeed.
The influence of Water on someone born in the year of the Rabbit according to the Chinese Zodiac greatly increases his or her empathy. A Water Rabbit is particularly sensitive to the emotions of others, and since he or she hates to hurt another person's feelings, he or she always knows exactly how to treat a person delicately. As a result, Water Rabbits make excellent customer service people-they know what others need and love to give it to them.
A Water Rabbit is a very giving Chinese sign. These people need to be very careful, or they will be taken advantage of. Their kind natures and strong dislike of conflict lead them to give in to others, even if they should not. Water Rabbits may be easily intimidated, and should remember that they deserve just as much as others do, and that sometimes it is worth it to stand up for themselves.
