Effect of the Year of the Water Rabbit on you!

Looking at the Sky for answers started as far back as the Shang dynasty around 1600 BC in ancient China. Oracle bones with inscriptions were found while farmers were digging up their land and initially they were thought to be dragon bones so were ground up for medicine and took a few centuries before they found out that it was actually oracle bones used previously to predict outcome of weather, war or any events

Astrologers and astronomers held important roles as they were employed by the Emperors in every subsequent dynasty to observe the skies to plan their farming, social events, and even political and military events. They knew that the correct timing of doing things could determine the fortune of a person. There are many systems in Chinese Metaphysics use for forecasting.

These astronomers found a correlation between the movements in the sky and events on earth and they found that any extraordinary movement like the appearance of meteors, comets, eclipses could trigger unusual events on earth.

So there has been recorded movement of the skies by the Chinese for more than 3000 years.

They use the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, the 28 Constellations of the Moon, and the Planets of Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus and Mercury were also noted as they corresponded to the 5 Elements that are used for calculations and predictions. The Five Elements are the basic foundation of Chinese Astrology and the interaction of the elements of animals and the elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal gives the data for the reading of each chart.

Of the 5 planets, Jupiter is the most important as it takes Jupiter around 12 years for it to go around the Sun and that is roughly 1 cycle of the Zodiac animals and the positioning of Jupiter is always the Year in focus. Like this year 2023 Jupiter is in the position of the Rabbit in the East between 82.6°- 97.5°.

Every year there is speculation on how the animal of the year can affect you and usually the media just tells you a short sentence about your luck potential. In reality that is just too basic and does not tell you the full outcome as each one of us can have up to 4 animals in our Chinese Astrology chart and the Rabbit can affect each one of those animals differently. An example of an actual chart is:

Each Pillar can represent your character, your family and relationships, your body, your aspects and more. So as per above, the Rabbit has a ‘clash’ relationship with the Rooster, an ‘Uncivilized relationship’ with the Rat, good friends with the ‘Dog’ and a negative ‘Peach Blossom’ relationship with the Horse. The Yin Water at the top of the chart also has a clash relationship with the Fire meaning things will not be smooth this year.

This is a full chart of a male born on the 8th June 1965 at 23:45 with their luck cycles spreading through potential 100 years of their life:

The interaction of the Natal Chart, the Luck cycle and the Annual Year animal will give you the potential that can happen for that particular year.

So, what can the Rabbit affect? General luck, social network, career, your parents, siblings, boy/girlfriend, spouse, marriage, self, children, aspirations, usually the timing depends on the location of the Zodiac animal.

Ultimately, the objective is to create balance and lead as smooth a life as possible

The following will be the potential that can happen if you have the following Zodiac animals in your chart:

How or what causes your luck to fluctuate?

The Auxiliary Stars that are in your animal sign; your Personal Feng Shui energy; The Zodiac animals that have a relationship with the Rabbit and this may have a negative effect on the birth/Natal chart; and in addition the energies of your house (Feng Shui);  place of work  and your personal actions

Is there a solution?

Possible solutions including being more charitable; donating blood; solutions include getting your home and work place appraised (Feng Shui is usually the antidote for a challenging luck cycle). There are lots of methods in Chinese Metaphysics to fix some of these challenges and activate wealth, it just depends whether it is possible in your home.

Your own personal ‘karmic’ actions also affect a major part of your luck.
