June 17 - June 23, 2019
As well as bringing you to the halfway point of the month of the Horse, Monday's Full Moon has other exciting implications. Every lunar month begins and ends on a New Moon, with a Full Moon not only falling at the halfway point but marking the point where it is time to start wrapping up one lunar month and preparing for the next. This is a Full Moon that gives you your first glimpse of what lies ahead and what kind of lunar month you are preparing for next. This is where a new sense of excitement and anticipation comes from, as well as the incentive to make the most of the Horse's focus on home and family matters. For what lies ahead is the first playful month in 12 years that will play out during the adventurous Year of the Pig. All of a sudden you have the incentive to take care of housekeeping or just work to ensure you have the right work/life balance.
2019 - Year of the Pig
Welcome to the Year of the Pig, the year that you have been waiting for, for a long time, whether you realize it or not. There are three things that make the Year of the Pig an especially good year for the Rabbit. The first is that the Rabbit and the Pig are the best of friends and he will have your back throughout the year. The energy of the Pig is something you can relate to, making you feel more relaxed, with a feeling of being supported.
The second is that for the Rabbit, the Year of the Pig is an adventurous year, with a focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery. Even if you never leave home, never travel or never set foot in a classroom, the Year of the Pig brings an opportunity to embrace life with a sense of adventure. It is less what you do during the Year of the Pig and more how you do it. The third positive aspect that the Year of the Pig brings, is its position in your personal 12 year lunar cycle.
For the Rabbit, the toughest lunar year is often the Year of the Rooster, your opposing sign. This brought you to the halfway point in your current 12 year lunar cycle, which is often a time of reckoning. While the Year of the Rooster ended last February, the Year of the Dog has been a buffer. By moving into the Year of the Pig you are another degree of separation away from the Rooster. At the same time, it is not until you move into the Year of the Rat in January 2020 that you will move into the final three years of this current 12 year lunar cycle.
This isn’t challenging but if anything it is exciting, and it brings with it the responsibility of having to start bringing things home. The Year of the Pig fits into that Goldilocks zone where you are far enough into your current 12 year personal lunar cycle that it is now more about the journey, but not so far that you have to start paying attention to bringing things home. When the Pig comes along and offers a year for adventure, travel, learning and discovery, the only valid response is ‘why not’?
About the Rabbit
Rabbits are lucky people; the Chinese believe them the luckiest of all. They can be really creative within the confines of their conservative and considerate natures. Although they are articulate and often show great talent, they have to overcome their shyness. Peace-loving, sensitive and compassionate Rabbits are very affectionate.
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.
