Happy Chinese New Year 2011 – Year of the Rabbit…

Are you smart?  Dare we say, wise?

What about talented?

Kind?

Do you like Angelina Jolie and Kate Winslet?

Well, if you are these things or like these things, and you are possibly a little lucky as well, then Chinese astrology suggests you might be a rabbit.  That’s not to say, of course that you can’t be/like these things if you aren’t a rabbit, but, y’know…let the rabbits have their year, man.

For all of us, however, the Year of the Rabbit is, according to Chinese astrology, the fourth stop in a 12 year cycle marked by other animals such as the Rat, the Dragon, the Tiger, and the Dog.  Rabbit years are a time to slow down and reflect…a time to catch up and get with it.  Put the emphasis on the home and on the family.  Love, kindness, and beauty are the hallmarks, so make 2011 all about that warm and cozy, even when things are spiny and prickly.

Look folks, whether or not you believe in astrology or Chinese astrology, doesn’t matter.  We all need downtime.  We all need beauty.  We all need some kind of feeling of home and hearth, even if we don’t have the Norman Rockwell home.  Take a Rabbit Year as an excuse to slow down and ponder…

You never know what the next year will bring (actually, it will bring the Year of the Dragon), so make the most of this one.
