People born in the years 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012 are considered the Rabbit people according to Chinese Astrology.


The Rabbit people are generally very lucky. There are several myths about the Rabbit in Chinese Culture. According to one of them, Rabbit has the potion for immortality.

People born in the Rabbit year are generous, kind, intellectual, artistic and sensitive. The Rabbit can go through hard times with minimum damage. They don’t tend to solve their problems with fighting. Instead, they try to talk and convince the other side to his side. Their peaceful and compromising nature should not lead anyone to see them as weak people. If they really have to fight, they will act brave and will fight. Their peaceful nature is completed with their passion for music and art.

The Rabbit are generous and always nice to everyone. However, their only negative side is their bad-temper. People around them are not prepared for their sudden anger and this may lead to misunderstandings.
