June 24 - June 30, 2019
The Rabbit is the most perceptive of all the Chinese signs and some born in the Year of the Rabbit have a sixth sense so well defined that it borders on psychic. This is why your spider sense will be working overtime this week, trying to figure out where a sense of excitement and anticipation is coming from. The intuitive Rabbit knows that the month of the Horse, with its focus on all things domestic is followed by the playful month of the Goat, which begins next week. Yet your sixth sense will be telling you that this is bigger and a lot more exciting than just the approach of the playful month of the Goat. By the weekend there is likely to be a sense of rebellion, as the adventurous Year of the Pig gets set to welcome in the month of the Goat, with an attention grabbing total solar eclipse.
2019 - Year of the Pig
Welcome to the Year of the Pig, the year that you have been waiting for, for a long time, whether you realize it or not. There are three things that make the Year of the Pig an especially good year for the Rabbit. The first is that the Rabbit and the Pig are the best of friends and he will have your back throughout the year. The energy of the Pig is something you can relate to, making you feel more relaxed, with a feeling of being supported.
The second is that for the Rabbit, the Year of the Pig is an adventurous year, with a focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery. Even if you never leave home, never travel or never set foot in a classroom, the Year of the Pig brings an opportunity to embrace life with a sense of adventure. It is less what you do during the Year of the Pig and more how you do it. The third positive aspect that the Year of the Pig brings, is its position in your personal 12 year lunar cycle.
For the Rabbit, the toughest lunar year is often the Year of the Rooster, your opposing sign. This brought you to the halfway point in your current 12 year lunar cycle, which is often a time of reckoning. While the Year of the Rooster ended last February, the Year of the Dog has been a buffer. By moving into the Year of the Pig you are another degree of separation away from the Rooster. At the same time, it is not until you move into the Year of the Rat in January 2020 that you will move into the final three years of this current 12 year lunar cycle.
This isn’t challenging but if anything it is exciting, and it brings with it the responsibility of having to start bringing things home. The Year of the Pig fits into that Goldilocks zone where you are far enough into your current 12 year personal lunar cycle that it is now more about the journey, but not so far that you have to start paying attention to bringing things home. When the Pig comes along and offers a year for adventure, travel, learning and discovery, the only valid response is ‘why not’?
About the Rabbit
Rabbits are lucky people; the Chinese believe them the luckiest of all. They can be really creative within the confines of their conservative and considerate natures. Although they are articulate and often show great talent, they have to overcome their shyness. Peace-loving, sensitive and compassionate Rabbits are very affectionate.
Rabbits are sensitive, caring and gentle creatures. It is considered the luckiest sign in the zodiac, for Rabbits have good characters. They are likely to come out unscathed from situations that could devastate most of us. They are shy, sentimental and popular amongst friends.
The Rabbit is non-confrontational and prefers to negotiate and compromise with quiet intelligence. Although when forced to, they will fight with courage and fierceness, hence their passive disposition must not be mistaken for docility. At worst, Rabbits can be moody and has certain deviousness because of their wish to avoid confrontations at all cost.
They are pleasure-loving creatures. They love being at home and the idea of love and marriage. Rabbits will frequently engage in temporary relationships that provide physical passions, although they rarely engage in anything long-term unless there is a solid promise of comfort and ease.
