The Year of the Rabbit
The year 2011 is the Year of The Rabbit, according to the Chinese Zodiac. Note that this Chinese year starts on February 3, 2011 and ends on January 22, 2012. The Chinese Zodiac cycles around the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar. Thus, 2010 was the year of the Tiger, 2011 the year of the Rabbit, and 2012 the year of the Dragon.
Looks like we’re all in for a treat. If the year of the Rabbit were an event, it would be a vacation. I’ve researched on several sources and I found the one from theholidayspot.com to be one of my favorites. Here’s what it says about the Year of the Rabbit.
The Year of the Rabbit
A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger. We should go off to some quiet spot to lick our wounds and get some rest after all the battles of the previous year.
Good tastes and cool refinement will shine on everything and people will acknowledge that diplomacy or persuasion is better than force. A congenial time in which diplomacy, international relations and politics will be given focus again. We should act with discretion and make reasonable concessions without too much difficulty.
This is a time to watch out that we do not become too indulgent. The influence of the Rabbit tends to spoil the types who like too much comfort and thus impair their effectiveness and sense of duty.
Law and order will be lax & rules and regulations will not be strictly enforced. No one seems very inclined to bother anyway with these unpleasant realities. They are busy enjoying themselves, entertaining others or simply taking it easy. The scene is serene and calm, even approaching the point of somnolence. We will all have a tendency to put off disagreeable tasks as long as possible
Money can be made without too much labor. Our life style will be languid and leisurely as we allow ourselves the luxuries we have always craved for. A temperate year with unhurried pace. For once, it may seem possible for us to be carefree and happy without too many annoyances.
On a global scale, a lot has indeed happened that a respite is a much needed event. While I think that the year of the Tiger was good on a personal level, I believe the year of the Rabbit would be even a lot better. If the above description for the Year of the Rabbit is to be believed, it speaks of calm and leisure, which I think everyone knows is a very welcome duo. And I myself wouldn’t mind making money ‘without too much labor’. Who wouldn’t agree?
