Year of the Rabbit

Happy Year of the Rabbit! Sunday 22nd January marked the beginning of the 2 week celebration of Chinese New Year. Let’s take a look at what we can expect.

Chinese astrology is based on a 12 year cycle with a corresponding element (wind, fire, earth, water or metal) and an animal representing each year. 2023 is the Year of the  Yin Water Rabbit.

The Year of the Rabbit represents peaceful and patient energy, a definite change from last year’s dynamic Yang Tiger.

Rabbits are kind, friendly creatures, and are considered to be the luckiest of the chinese zodiac.

The water element of 2023 resonates with inner wisdom and intuition while the social energy of the Rabbit indicates this is a good year to focus on building both professional and personal relationships.

To some, the Rabbit’s kindness may make them seem soft and easy to take advantage of, however the Rabbit’s gentle nature hides their confidence and inner strength.

Those welcoming a chid this year can expect a witty, kindhearted and friendly individual. It is said those born in Rabbit Years are excellent planners and quite achievers who choose to maintain friendships rather than burn bridges.

How will you Harmonize with the New Year?

Health wise, take care of your Lungs, the storehouse of the body.  Meditation and Chi Gong practices will be beneficial and traditional Chinese herbal formulas like our Chest Clear and Immunity and Balance Tonic.

Lucky colours in the Year of the Water Rabbit  are red, pink, purple and blue and and the lucky flowers are plantain lily and jasmine.
