Rabbit year can be a nurturing time of peace, calm, leisure, and rest after the intensity of the previous Tiger year. During gentle Rabbit's influence, good taste and refinement are valued, and comfort is desired. Money can be made easily, but spent easily. Dragon year 2012 will be a wild, exhausting time, so appreciate the small pleasures of Rabbit year as opportunities to heal, relax, and entertain. Make time for family gatherings and comfortable travel. Expect political compromise and diplomatic peacemaking on a global level. Discretion and persuasion are effective in a Rabbit year, whereas force does not work.
The year of the Rabbit begins on the new Moon of February 3, 2011. Lovely Rabbit is a symbol of purity: fastidiously clean Rabbit washes its face with its front paws to look beautiful as polished jade.
