Year of the Water Rabbit Breakdown


The Year of the Water Rabbit, with its heightened sensitivity and frenzy, is hopping fast into February.

Now, let me break this year down, so we can all have a better idea of what it is all about, and what to expect.


After the last powerful three years, this is the transitional year, the in-between year of rest, retreat, and rejuvenation, before we enter the powerful years of the Dragon and then Snake in 2024 & 25. This year is about the pilgrimage of the soul, healing, exploration, and learning.


The Rabbit cares most about security, always on alert. However, it hops from one direction to the other without notice. We need to watch distractions, and being pulled in ten directions at once. The Rabbit hops before it thinks, so we all have to curb our impulses this year, and be sure of the steps we take. Distracting energies make this year hard to achieve our goals. Best to choose, prioritize and have a to-do list, each day, so we are sure we are making progress. Also, when things are presented best to take time to research them and sit with them, before jumping into them. 


A lover of classical arts, beauty, and nature, the arts are favored this year, especially literary projects, arts and design, and harmonious sounds. The year lends itself to this all year, as the Rabbit is highly sensitive and prefers surroundings that do not overwhelm her and are beautiful. 

This year is not about material achievements as much as spiritual awakenings, healing, and learning. Although the Rabbit loves to enjoy the finer things of life, the 7 Universal year is about "being", and higher connections. Traveling and expanding our minds to new material will be part of the exploration and learning of this year. Places of spiritual/mystical significance, historical, water areas, or artistic events, are more of interest.

At the heart of it, this gentle being is so blessed with good luck, and this year many will share this with her. Rabbits are known to be the luckiest of all 12 animal signs. They are docile beings that hide an interior of great fortitude. They survive the hardships of life and are able to move on with their spirits intact.


The Rabbit is non-confrontational and highly diplomatic, always opting for peace. I pray that this will bring more peace-filled resolutions to our world.


Health-wise, the Rabbit has a sensitive disposition. So, the nervous system, digestion, pancreas, and liver are highlighted. We need to watch anxiety and stress levels, as the Rabbit gets overwhelmed easily. 

Loving to retreat, the Rabbit requires more rest and relaxation. It likes to work at a leisurely pace, and it would rather enjoy life than just work all day. 


A year of learning, classes, academia, and languages would be more favored this year. Also, in terms of physical activities, the Rabbit years are not conducive to high-risk sports, and the Rabbit year would support these forms of activity: dance, swim, yoga, camp, walk, and meditate. 


The Rabbit energy is social, and yet always will need a bit of alone time to recharge its batteries. All in all, we each can learn so much from the Rabbit. We can learn adaptability, detachment, eloquence, and learn to enjoy our life more. 


To best see how you fare in a year, your year animal, month, hour, and day have to be looked at. Also, then there is the number sign for this year for you.


You can get your chart at: Click Here. Also, you can purchase my very detailed recording of this year. I cover all animal signs, and it will guide and support you. The information is at the bottom of this Newsletter.


I have put a few words for each animal sign below. Please note, if your animal sign is in challenge with the year that means that you will have lots of unpredictable changes. Change is not a bad thing, and so necessary for our growth, so embrace and allow it. 


The Ox, Tiger, Boar, and Rooster need to be patient as they may face challenges or lack of support. The Dog, Rabbit, and Rat need to utilize so many good stars and blessings. These two groups are emphasized as either having more luck or unlucky aspects. 

But, please remember, we have four animals in our charts and four elements. Each is significant. 

Take it all in with a grain of salt and enjoy!


Rat: Time to Shine! Opportunities and Blessings

Ox: Master a Skill, Pursue metaphysical studies, Support lacking

Tiger: Retreat and rest. Don't be too ambitious. Mindfulness

Rabbit: Go for the Gold! Stellar year! All eyes are on you!

Dragon: Serve others. Be selfless. Will be blessed as you serve

Snake: Very busy! Travel, seek Guru

Horse: Blessing year! Be Happy! Get out of your head!

Sheep: Career is the focus. Rise! Growth

Monkey: Spiritual Year, Travel with purpose

Dog: You are the Emperor! Go for the Stars!

May your Rabbit Year be blessed with good health, peace, and joy, and may each step be guided. 

Enjoy, embrace, and allow.

*** Be careful of being too impulsive. Sit with your decisions, research them, then move forward. 

March 2023

The March

I found it quite interesting that the month of March was named after the Roman God, Mars, the warrior God, "marching" us into action. What I also find rather interesting, is that this March, in 2023, is quite powerful, as not only is it the birth of Spring, the Equinox, the Persian New Year of Norooz, but also, it is astrologically the month of the Rabbit, where so much shifts, and we can really start feeling we are ready, to march into our lives, especially near month's end.

This is the birth of a miraculous season where nature puts on her colorful cloak, and paints a rainbow of colors, in the fields. The birds sing with a special brilliance, and the breeze ushers in the scent of renewal, the promise of new ideas, hopes, and wishes. And our hearts beat with a stronger pulse, as we secretly hope and so want to believe that all is possible.

Who does not love Spring? Who does not love the drops of rain gracing the green fields and the purple and pink and yellow flowers delighting our senses? It is not possible to be indifferent to Spring.

Spring is magical, and there is no denying this, and as the first three weeks of Spring are about tying up loose ends, the final week is about the march, the strong stride.

And my dear ones, it is also not possible, to be indifferent to our inner wishes. Each one of us, in our hearts, always wants to believe, that the magic of life will find its way into our hearts, and that we can find joy, laughter, hope, and inspiration. But you see, Spring is also a feeling as I see it. It's the belief that beginnings and fresh starts, that hope and magic and all that delicious food for our soul, is within us, and within our grasp. Spring is not a season only, it is a feeling, a belief that magic, that love and joy, and renewal are within us. It is a time to birth them and let them color our life.

I know life is not easy, and I know as many of you have recently pointed out to me, our world is so struggling. The earthquakes that devastated Turkey and Syria, the situation in Ukraine and Russia, Iran and Afghanistan, the violence that each day speaks through our streets, and, and .... Yes, our world has so much weariness, and there is so much that needs to heal, and so much that needs to be there is light, there is darkness, as there is courage, there is fear, as there is faith there is hopelessness. And it is easy to see the bad, and easy to dismiss the good, for somehow as humans we forget the good faster, and hang on to the bad longer. But truth is, there is so much more good.

Think of this, how many thousands and thousands of organizations there are that each day does so many wonderful things for our world? How many amazing teachers, social workers, and medical personnel each day work hard to serve humanity?

And what about the Universe? How many stars each night find their way in the sky to light our way, and how amazing is it that we have the Moon and Sun, shining their light on us? And the ocean, and the trees, and the animals... I can go on and blessed are we, that we are experiencing all of this, in one life, and sometimes in one breath? It is a miracle, it really is.

So, this March, as you are thinking of how to march into your life, be very observant of each breath and the miracle that it gifts you with hundreds of times each day...the gift of seeing, feeling, sensing, smelling, and embracing the beauties around you, and the feelings that they produce within you...this is no small gift.

Pablo Neruda says beautifully, "You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming."

And yes, there can be so much wrong with our world, but this does not stop the magic, of being, the magic of Spring.

So let us embrace this, let us open our arms, and tilt our heads to the Skies and say:

"O Great Universe!

Let me become one with Spring

Let me be the rain, the sun, the blooming flowers

May my soul rejoice in this glory, as my spirit finds renewal

I am Spring itself!

I am the birth of much within me, I am the magic

I am the creation, and the creator of so much."

Blessed be your march...

Blessed be the rains that purify and renew.

Blessed be the glorious Sun that births hope each day and the enticing Moon that illuminates our way.

And blessed be your hearts...radiant as the glorious Sun.

Shine forth...

And let each march spring a new hope within your heart.
