The Rabbit/Hare in Snake Year 2013-14
Snake year contains hidden dangers for Rabbits, particularly regarding financial matters. Take care with respect to those around you and don't be too trusting, lest hard-earned wealth suffers a negative outflow.
Rabbit stubbornness may cause friction in close relationships and good communication skills may be required. Overall, Rabbits' health should be fairly good during the period, although colds, flu and headaches may be a problem at times.
Rabbits' Longevity links are well known. The Rabbit's Lunar-location (see below) emphasizes this via the Moon's well-known reproductive-cycle links. Rabbits are also considered the most fortunate or 'lucky' of the 12 Animal signs.
Look carefully at the next full moon. The Chinese see a Rabbit under a tree with the elixir of life in its paw. As they reproduce so quickly, the world will never experience a rabbit-shortage! Thus, the Rabbit is a Chinese longevity symbol.
