Chinese New Year 2023 – Year Of The Rabbit
LIFE & STYLE
Unlike Western astrology, which assigns one of twelve constellations according to a person’s birth month, the Chinese zodiac works according to one’s birth year, where one is said to be born under the traits of one of twelve sacred animals. It follows that each year is then dedicated to one of these animals, and 2023 happens to be the Year of the Rabbit. The fleet-footed rabbit will bring a focus on travel for many this year, along with an element of cautiousness. The rabbit also symbolises longevity, peace, prosperity, and intellect, so 2023 is shaping up to be a good year!
