The Rabbit was fast enough to be the first to make it to the Jade Emperor’s party, and as it often boasted, it could have easily outrun the slow pace of the ox. The overconfidence of the Rabbit caused it to be fourth, as it went to the party but decided to run off and catch some sleep as nobody else had arrived yet. This choice made it the fourth zodiac, as it ended up being beat to the party by three animals, including the Ox which it had spent so much time making fun of. The Rabbit’s Earthly Branch is mǎo, and it is connected to the morning hours are five to seven. Because of the Rabbit's purity as well as the way a rabbit can be seen in the moon’s shadows, the Rabbit is symbolic of the moon amongst Chinese people. The most recent years of the Rabbit were 2011 and 1999, and the next is 2023.


Personality and characteristics

The Rabbit is sincere and it also expects sincerity from other people. Rabbits are sweet natured, but there is more to them than many realize. They are much more powerful and confident than they put on, and they do not let people discourage them and get them down. They have sharp intellects, and they are also highly personable. They can have difficulty going deep with people, though, and they tend to seek diversions rather than meaningful connections. Rabbits do not like having things be rote and repetitive, and they like things in life to move forward and constantly provide excitement, despite the caution that they approach life with.



Rabbits and Dogs make for great partners as they want lives that are calm and low key. They also are a great match for pigs, as the two zodiacs see each other as being very appealing. As rabbits like to look out for others, and Sheep like to be taken care of, they fit into each other’s needs and desires perfectly. Roosters and Rabbits will find a way to argue about everything, so it is best they avoid each other. Dragons are another poor match for Rabbits, despite their wants lining up, as they simply do not get along well. Rats and Rabbits have no chance with each other, and they will bicker until the break of dawn.



Rabbits tend to be in good physical health, but they need to watch what they eat, as they usually eat rather indiscriminately. They also have to take care of their mental health. As they get depressed and anxious about many things, this can build up into bigger problems. They should seek help for these issues, and try to have a good support system that helps them through difficult times. They would do well to not sweat the small stuff and focus on the bigger picture.



Rabbits do well in jobs that call for great social skills, but they also have an artistic side that will flourish in the right position. Collaborative arts such as music and film are great career options for them, and they will also excel in jobs where their detail oriented nature is put into use, such as architecture. Jobs that utilize their large networks are good as well, such as public relations jobs.
