It’s the lunar new year, also called Chinese New Year, and the perfect time to think about prosperity, health, and good fortune. Inflation is the word on many people’s minds, not prosperity, but we can still celebrate the bright side of darker times.
What does prosperity and good fortune mean to you? You could be rich in family, friends, and other relationships. You could be rich in luck. For example, you pop into a store and the item you’re looking for is on sale. Or you’ve planned an important event and it’s supposed to snow that day, but turns out to be sunny instead.
This year may be harsh on the finances, so it may be the year to plant seeds. Invest in your education and skills so that you have a higher-paying job next year. Or meet people who will teach you about investments, or partner with you on a business venture that becomes profitable in the future.
Rabbits in the Chinese Zodiac
This lunar new year is the year of the rabbit in the Chinese zodiac. The rabbit is considered the luckiest of the zodiac animals. Other cultures around the world also consider the rabbit as a symbol of luck that leads to success. It’s an animal associated with prosperity and new beginnings.
People born in the year of the rabbit (2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, 1939, etc) are thought to have more chances to make money than those born under other zodiac signs. However, this also means they can make a big profit or have little to no return on their investments.
The best careers for rabbits are in healthcare, education, religion, medicine, law/law enforcement, or culture. Rabbits are skilled at hands-on activities such as painting, calligraphy, cooking, and tailoring.
