The rabbit is the fourth symbol in the Japanese Zodiac. In ancient China, white rabbits were considered as a propitious augury. As rabbits live peacefully in groups, this symbol represents “well-being of a family”. It also represents “great progress in business” because of the way they leap forward.
Rabbits are optimistic, warm, virtuous and broad-minded. While they are lovable and are regarded with admiration and trust most of the time, their trusting nature means they can be deceived easily.
You can identify a rabbit if they:
- Cannot say no to others.
- Have exceedingly fine taste.
- Are heavy sleepers and wake up in a bad mood.
Compatibility with other signs
Rabbits are most compatible with sheep and boars. If these three come together, it generates a great positive power. Rabbits also have a mutually beneficial relationship with dogs. Roosters are the least compatible with rabbits.
In Japanese, a rabbit is “usagi” in romaji and is written as “兎” in kanji. In the Japanese Zodiac, however, it is often called “u” and is written as “卯”.
