The Year of the Rabbit and the Year of the Tiger are both associated with specific characteristics and traits in Chinese astrology. Here are some key differences between the two:
Personality: Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are generally described as gentle, sensitive, and easygoing, while those born in the Year of the Tiger are said to be confident, brave, and independent. Each year reflects these qualities, with the Year of the Rabbit generally feeling softer than the more intense year of the Tiger.
Relationships: The Year of the Rabbit is known for its focus on diplomacy and harmony, and those born in this year are likely to prioritize peaceful resolution in their relationships. In contrast, those born in the Year of the Tiger are known for their strong personalities and tendency towards leadership, and may be more assertive in their relationships. It is not uncommon to heal relationships and enjoy gentle, cozy time with loved ones during the Year of the Rabbit.
Career: The Year of the Rabbit is thought to be well-suited for careers in diplomacy, healing, or social work, due to its focus on peaceful resolution and tact. On the other hand, the Year of the Tiger is often associated with careers in leadership or entrepreneurship, confidence and boldness.
Luck: Both the Year of the Rabbit and the Year of the Tiger are associated with good luck and prosperity. However, the Year of the Rabbit is specifically associated with abundance and good fortune, while the Year of the Tiger is thought to bring strength and courage.
Fertility: The Year of the Rabbit is generally considered supportive for fertility, due to its gentle, cozy nature and the obvious connotation between rabbits and reproduction ;)
Overall, we are looking at a much softer and gentler year ahead, compared with the more intense and productive Tiger year that we are leaving behind. The Year of the Rabbit begins on the Lunar New Year January 22, 2023.
