August 26 - September 1, 2019
For the Rabbit, the month of the Monkey can be the busiest month of any year and while this is always a good month for work and job matters and for achieving a lot, there is little time to rest. The Monkey might be full of boundless enthusiasm and this gives you the motivation to put everything you have into everything you do and it does give you a creative edge, this isn't an energy that likes to rest. This year you have had a secret weapon in that we are under the domain of the Year of the Pig. The Pig and Rabbit are not only the best of friends, the Pig's adventurous influence is helping to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. With the month of the Monkey ending on Friday's New Moon the timing couldn't be better, allowing you to put everything you have into this working week, then taking a break over the weekend. This is when the month of the Rooster will shift the focus onto your relationships.
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’?

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.
