Tiger years usually don't cause much concern to rabbits. After all, there are larger, more succulent beasts to prey on - unless you're the only one around. A little care, hare, should see a good year if you get out and smell the grasses. Defence, not aggression, is the best strategy for a harmonious and flourishing hutch this year. Buck your deeper instincts and put your good nature and sixth sense to work. Remember - not every shadow threatens.

Some creaking in the joints and small inflammations of the skin may creep in but otherwise you should be in good health, so concentrate on lapin it up. Rabbits sleep for about eight hours; make sure you're getting yours and that will stand you in as good a stead as you may wish. The conjunction with the tiger year works in your favour so use it well.


The snowmelt swells the rivers as the summer passes and the Grand Rabbit makes a move. Autumn is the best time for investing and reaping rewards, as good stars will light your way to the water. Hitch a ride on your own career and watch your bank midsection bulge. Perhaps not the best year to buck the trend and invest in anything that moves unless you can see clearly where it is going.


Itchy rump? Ears drooping? Nose twitching? There’s always time for love among rabbits, and now is no exception. Look who's at the door - it's the Salty Pond Peach Blossom Star asking you to socialise with and love thy neighbours. How far you go depends on your own relationship status and what you want, so please act responsibly.


Cottontails up! The lord of lords, as far as helpful stars go - the Heavenly Second Star - is visiting this year, and he’s coming disguised as a giant rabbit’s foot. You should be able to leveret his help and jump as high as you can. Brush those whiskers back and coney your hair nice and neat; when opportunity comes knocking you’ll not want to be flat-footed. Burrow a friend’s finest and prepare to meet your fate.

Guiding hexagram from the Yi-Jing (Book of Changes)

Splitting Apart. It does not further one to go anywhere.
The mountain rests on the earth: the image of Splitting Apart. Thus, those above can ensure their position only by giving generously to those below.
The Forest of Changes:
A giant snake and a southern right whale do battle in the suburbs. Ranks are divided and isolated, the expelled lord flees.
A position in a suburban zoo may not have been in your planning this year, but look at the employment prospects, the possibility of meeting love interests who are also into animals, and that fact that your boss may enter the tiger cage early in the year and just leave you to run the place as you wish.
