The year of the rabbit begins on February 3rd, 2011. Those born under the sign of the rabbit are known for their calm and gentle nature, but also persistence. Rabbits are considered to be dependable and give good advice. They are cautious and like to carefully consider their options before making a move. They are also known to be warm, artistic and affectionate. Rabbits are intuitive and are quick to react to potentially harmful situations.
Having many traits of its namesake animal, most Rabbit years are quiet, positive and inspiring. 2011 should be a major change after the fast paced and dramatic Year of the Tiger. Family, diplomacy and personal development will all be highlighted in 2011. Arts and culture will be thriving. Love, romance and family life are key, with a renewed appreciation of loved ones and friends. Overall, it should be a fun and relatively peaceful year. The Chinese Rabbit year favors peaceful solutions and diplomacy, so even if there are still rough times, there will be a feeling of hope and an optimistic outlook for the future.
