Fun facts about the year of the Rabbit
1. The rabbit is considered the luckiest sign
Unlike Western astrology, with its ever-shifting, daily horoscopes, those born under the sign of the rabbit are said to be kind, wise, gentle, considerate and, yes, fashionable. The rabbit is considered one of the most fortunate of the twelve animal signs and is the emblem of longevity. It is said to derive his essence from the Moon.
2. It promises a mellow year
Coming between the Year of the Tiger and the Year of the Dragon, which are both reputed for their global tumult, the Year of the Rabbit seems like it will be a piece of cake by comparison, claims Chinese Astrology.
3. Rabbit celebs
Albert Einstein, Frank Sinatra, Pope Benedict XVI, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp were all born in the Year of the Rabbit.
Ps. Bunnies have been my favourite sign for a long time I was spoilt rotten when Lana (the most efficient and fashionable intern ever) came to visit on Tuesday with a whole stack of bunny gifts - featured in the photograph top left. Thanks Lana!
