To the Chinese, the Rabbit symbolizes graciousness, good manners, sound counsel, kindness, and sensitivity to beauty. [But of course. - me] The Rabbit is a witty and intelligent speaker and loves being involved in a good discussion. [Ehem.] He is an efficient worker and has an extremely good memory.
Rejoice! Your year has come, a year for significant progress at home, at work and in your social life. This is a year when you will see your old problems being straightened out. On career matters, it is a year for growth. Although your progress could be hampered by some superiors and associates, you will prevail in the end and promotion will be likely. This is not the year, however, for timid bunnies. Grab opportunities as they come. Financially, you will experience good fortune with well-managed finances. A bonus, gift or unexpected income will surprise and delight you.
Your social life will be busy and you'll often find yourself the center of attention. At home, you will delight in many family celebrations. There will be travel opportunities that you should not pass up. For single Rabbits, this is a good year for marriage.
