Chinese New Year

2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951

22nd of February

The rabbit’s association with the moon in Chinese mythology has created a sign that is partial to beauty. They are sensitive creatures who place great importance on peace and tranquillity. The rabbit is also the sign that indicates longevity and fortune. They are quietly determined, talented and wildly ambitious. Rabbits are very tactful and can negotiate contracts with alarming clarity. They are pleasant people, kind and considerate to the sensitivities of others, Rabbits know how to take things in their stride without getting overly stressed out. They are well liked for their cool demeanour. And yet, when the going gets tough, the rabbit will make a hasty exit, passing the buck to others. Rabbits are also hypersensitive and overly sentimental. They tend to get moody and have a quiet cunningness under their pleasant veneer. Rabbits may think they are being cautious but in reality, they like to complicate matters, often indulging in the worst case scenario.

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
