Chinese Horoscope 2023 - Year of the Rabbit

The Year of the Rabbit is the fourth year in the Chinese zodiac tradition and repeats every twelve years. It starts on January 22, 2023 and concludes on the 9th of February, 2024.

Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig are the twelve zodiac animals, in order.

The recent years of the Rabbit are: 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, and soon enough in 2023.

The Chinese New Year doesn’t have a set date as the western New Year does, so it is incredibly important to make sure you have the right date for when every Year of the Rabbit begins.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of the Rabbit 2023 is a very peaceful year, welcomed with open arms by all after the bold Year of the Tiger. We need to retreat to a quiet and peaceful place, in order to heal our wounds and wind down after all we had to endure the previous year.

Tastefulness and improvement will triumph over all else, and people will acknowledge that prestige is more important than force.

It is a time when we have to keep ourselves in check and not become hedonistic and lazy. The Rabbit tends to affect those people who are too attracted to comfort, which makes them forget about the value of responsibility.

In 2023, the Chinese Horoscope tells us that the Year of The Rabbit will be calm and at peace. We will be prone to procrastination on things we don’t like to do for as long as we can. Money can be earned without putting in blood, sweat and tears.

Our lifestyle will be laid-back and fun as we allow ourselves to experience the luxury that we always dreamt of.
