The Rabbit is found in the fourth zodiac location in Chinese astrology. It is actually the Chinese Year of the Hare that is expressed in the zodiac since there are no native species of rabbits. When compared to Western astrology, it is seen as the equivalent of Pisces. In this article, you will learn more about the characteristics associated with the Rabbit in Chinese astrology.
Out of all the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, the rabbit is considered the most delicate. With a usually kind and sweet disposition, this makes a person born under the sign rather popular amongst the people. Since they make good company, it is quite common to find them surrounded by loving friends. Despite being surrounded by love and companionship, the Rabbit can still show signs of pessimism. They tend not to embrace chance, which can lead to insecurity and conservativeness.
Other personality traits of people born under the Year of the Rabbit include:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Rabbits are full of compassion and sentiment. Because of this, they tend to cry easily.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ In relationships, they make great partners that bring faithfulness and sweetness together.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ It is not uncommon to find a Rabbit not making a decision without truly weighing the pros and cons of a situation.
Traditional associations of the Rabbit zodiac sign include the eastern direction, the season of spring, the month of March, the element of wood, the gemstone pearl, and the color gray.

Compatibility with Rabbits
When looking for a love match, the Rabbit will create a truly strong relationship with a Pig. Next in line, the Dragon and Rabbit together are known to make a good team. The Goat offers the chance for happiness and the two can forge a nice union with one another.
Pairing with their same sign, the Rabbit could find a suitable mate, but the couple will have a better chance at lasting if they have access to a lot of money. While a relationship with an Ox could work, it is best to rethink a permanent bond with a Snake. It's best to just stay friends with a Horse or Rooster. If a Rabbit is looking for a partner to keep them amused, the Monkey will certainly oblige. A Rabbit can find a good mate in a Dog if they both are able to keep their cool with one another.
The Rabbit is fairly compatible with a lot of other signs, but they simply will not get along with a Rat. They will also find it difficult to establish a lasting relationship with a Tiger, and if they get married Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it could be viewed as taking an easy way out.
