I have been thinking about rabbits a lot lately. My home has been without a pet for almost two years now and I miss having a fuzzy creature around to pet and nurture. I have been contemplating adopting a rabbit and becoming a “Bunny Mom”. How synchronistic that this year is the year of the Rabbit in the Chinese astrological calendar.
Traditionally, after the first new moon of the Lunar calendar each year, Asian communities around the world gather with loved ones to usher in the new year. This holiday also marks the beginning of SPRING. People spend time celebrating with family, food, fireworks and dancing.
The year 2023 marks the Year of the Rabbit and more specifically, the Water Rabbit. The rabbit is believed to be the luckiest of the 12 animals in the Zodiac. The Rabbit represents peaceful and patient energy while the water element is all about tapping into our intuition and trusting our instincts in order to bring about blessings in our lives. If you are born in 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011 and 2023 you can expect good fortune, calm energy and prosperity this year. Einstein, Michael Jordan, Novak Djokovic, David Beckham and Tiger Woods were all born in the Year of the Rabbit. Let me know if you are too:-)
I also love that in Chinese culture, rabbits represent the MOON. We had a lovely new moon in Aquarius this past weekend. I made my wish for a sweet little baby rabbit to join my family.
Lunar new year festivities will continue for the next two weeks and will culminate on February 5th with the Lantern Festival. This is also the day of the SUPER FULL MOON IN LEO, which I will tell you more about in the coming days. It is going to be intense!
Sending you all love and praying for your safety, prosperity, and peace. Let’s continue to support our Asian communities by joining in their celebrations and spreading the peaceful, light-hearted energy,
