May 23 - May 29, 2022
The final days of any lunar month are always a mix of a drop in urgency as the Moon moves into its waning phase and a sense of haste, as you work to make the most of the final days under its influence. This time, there is extra incentive as you work to make the most of the final days of the month of the Snake, one of the most handy and useful months of any lunar year. For the Rabbit, the month of the Snake is the Swizz army knife of any lunar year, with a tool for every occasion. Running its course next Monday but not before a Snake Moon from Monday allows you to squeeze as much as you can before it ends, this is a week where communication and thinking on your feet are well supported.
Year of the Tiger
Feb 1, 2022 - Jan 21, 2023
The New Moon on 1st February not only brings us to the Chinese New Year but to a major shift in focus for you. Every new lunar year begins with the nostalgic and reflective month of the Tiger, with the final month of your personal 12 month lunar cycle always overlapping the first month of any new solar year. This is preparation for the month of the Rabbit, which will begin on 2nd March. However, for the first time in 12 years, this is the New Moon that will usher in the Year of the Tiger, bringing you to the final year of your current personal 12 year lunar cycle, with a chance to close old doors ahead of the Year of the Rabbit, which will begin on 23rd January 2023. What began back in 2011 during the last Year of the Rabbit and has evolved since then, is now in its completion phase.
2023 is destined to be a big year for you, with the New Moon on 21st January 2023 ushering in the Year of the Rabbit and with it the start of a new personal 12 year lunar cycle, a time of major new beginnings and the start of a new journey. Before then, the Year of the Tiger is a year of closure, endings, completion and for tying up loose ends. This is a journey that will take nearly 12 months to complete and is something that will happen gradually. While the month of the Tiger itself is normally a quiet month and in the lead up to the month of the Rabbit can bring a call for more time to reflect and to spend time navel gazing, this is not a true representation of the Year of the Tiger itself.
It is once the month of the Rabbit begins on 2nd March that you will notice the separation. The month of the Rabbit will bring you to the start of a new personal 12 month lunar cycle, making 2nd March to 1st April some of the most important weeks of the year for a reset, as you realign with your personal truth. As this will be the last month of the Rabbit before the Year of the Rabbit begins next January, this will alert you to the major new chapter ahead but also the work that still needs to be done to first bring this old chapter home. In essence, the Year of the Tiger is a year for preparing for the future and the major new beginnings ahead while first finishing, completing and exploiting what you can from this current 12 year cycle.
Rabbits are sensitive, caring and gentle creatures. It is considered the luckiest sign in the zodiac, for Rabbits have good characters. They are likely to come out unscathed from situations that could devastate most of us. They are shy, sentimental and popular amongst friends.
The Rabbit is non-confrontational and prefers to negotiate and compromise with quiet intelligence. Although when forced to, they will fight with courage and fierceness, hence their passive disposition must not be mistaken for docility. At worst, Rabbits can be moody and has certain deviousness because of their wish to avoid confrontations at all cost.
They are pleasure-loving creatures. They love being at home and the idea of love and marriage. Rabbits will frequently engage in temporary relationships that provide physical passions, although they rarely engage in anything long-term unless there is a solid promise of comfort and ease.
