The Rabbit is the fourth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. It belongs to the “wood” element among the Chinese five elements. The Rabbit is quiet and tame, he may look weak, but he is fast-paced and responsive. Therefore, people born in the Year of the Rabbit have polarising personalities.
The Rabbit hour (5:00 am ~7:00 am) refers to when the sun has risen and starting to shine its rays. At these hours, the rabbit runs out from its nest to nibble on the grass filled with dew. The ancient Chinese observed this and associated these two hours with rabbits.

Personality of the Rabbit
The Rabbit is gentle and understanding, full of emotions, very meticulous when it comes to work, and is constantly aware of changes around him. There is a Chinese saying ‘the cunning rabbit has three holes to its burrow’, and its meaning is not entirely derogatory. To be able to protect one’s self in order to improve and be successful, this is the best trait of the Rabbit.
The Rabbit also has obvious shortcomings. The Rabbit tends to be less ambitious, can be petty and overly concerned about the small things. It might seem that the Rabbit has a submissive personality; however, his vanity is not easily changed overnight. This can result in the Rabbit focusing on handling his interpersonal relations with others and neglecting the determination to improve. It is not the best way to handle things even though ‘the Rabbit will bite when it gets anxious’.
