Forecasts for the Rabbit in 2019

Prosperous career and ambitious goals

It is not a good year for Rabbits' careers in 2019. Rabbits will meet some difficulties and suffer from great pressure in their career. They were likely to lose heart and feel nervous easily in the course of this hard time. When they are in trouble, they should learn to keep calm.

One way to solve their issues are keep trying and believe in themselves. Another way is that they can change to another place to find other development opportunities.

  • Ideal jobs for Rabbits: artist, teacher, doctor, secretary, translator, babysitter, musician, litterateur.

Choosing a proper job will do rabbits a favor to succeed more easily.

Finance—investment should be cautious

Rabbits should make good use of their money. They should avoid risky investment, but if they find a proper chance to invest, they should seize the opportunity. The best month for investment is the first Chinese lunar month. Meanwhile, they should make a good plan on their money before investment.

The most important thing is that Rabbits should save money for unexpected needs. They must not believe anyone who tells them to invest easily. Before lending money to other people, they should think twice to avoid financial loss.

Health—a little unfavorable

Rabbits may suffer from all kinds of disease. But if they take regular exercise, it won't be a big problem for them. What's worst, they may even suffer from nervous system disease because of their unstable mood. The best way to solve this problem is to keep healthy and stay positive. In addition, they should go to hospital to check up their bodies at a regular time. In daily life, they shouldn't stay up late too much and keep a balanced diet.


  • For a single person, it is a pleasant time for them to find the right partner. But for married people or lovers, they should keep good communication with their partners and give more courage to help their partners to get through this tough time.
  • For friends, Rabbits may meet a lot of people. But because it is not a lucky year for Rabbit, so they should make friends with strangers carefully in case that they are cheated by bad guys.

Love Compatibility with Other Chinese Zodiac Signs

Chinese zodiac compatibility is an important component in love and marriage for Chinese people. Those whose characteristics match each other well can be a good partner in traditional Chinese culture. But if their characteristics did not match each other well, their parents won't agree them to marry with each other. Because, in ancient china, people think that people whose characteristics do not match well will be harmful to each other.

  • Best with: pig, dog, sheep.
  • Worst with: rat, dragon.

Female Rabbits in Love—polite, freedom, quiet, and gentle.

Female rabbits like freedom, they don't like to be constrained in a relationship. They don't fall in love with anyone easily. Once female rabbits fall in love with someone, they will set all their mind in their love. They love their lovers so much that, once they are hurt by their lovers, their hearts will be easy to be worn out. They can get on well with people around them. Because of their character, they are popular among many males. Above all, female rabbits value their families very much.

Male rabbits like to live a stable life with their lovers. They are kind to people who they love, and they are popular among many females due to their good manners. As for marriage, they hold a negative view. Although they are gentle to their lovers, they may be callous to other people sometimes.
