HAVING A BABY IN THE YEAR OF THE WATER RABBIT – CHARACTERISTICS AND TRAITS YOU CAN EXPECT…
Here are a few fun facts you should know about the water rabbit before we dive right into your baby’s traits. There are five different types of rabbits in the Chinese zodiac, including the water rabbit, wood, fire, earth and gold. And did you know the water rabbit makes a comeback once in a 60 years cycle, the last being year 1963? The rabbit symbolises longevity, peace and prosperity in the Chinese zodiac. It is also the only animal in the zodiac that lives with the Goddess Chang’e on the moon and is the most favoured zodiac sign in Chinese astrology. Now, aren’t you over the moon about your little fluff tail?
1. Rabbits are gentle, quiet and alert
Rabbits may be swift little creatures, but have you ever noticed how daintily and quietly they move? Not a sound! So chances are your little bunny will be quite the observer who avidly soaks in his/her surroundings. Your little fluff tail will also be quite the amicable creature, sensitive and protective towards peers.
2. Rabbits are quick and skilful
Don’t be surprised if your bunny is a fast learner, plays things quickly with calculation and gets things done before the snap of a finger (maybe not like the bunny that features in ‘the hare and the tortoise’). Does this mean you also might have to be on your guard when the naughty streak kicks in? Only time will tell. This trait is perfect for a sport, and we think your little bunny will hop their way to glory with a sport they are interested in.
3. Rabbits are responsible
This is great news for you mums and dads because, as we know – life comes with its share of responsibilities at every phase. We say rabbits should definitely have younger siblings. You can rest easy knowing your littlie will be well looked after by your water bunny. Need we mention school homework!
4. Rabbits are patient
The art of patience sometimes takes years to master. But with your bub, patience will be key to their personality and will come naturally. A patient bunny makes for a calm and peaceful bunny as well. And in this fast-paced world, don’t we all want a bit of calm and peace? Your little water rabbit is predicted to have a peaceful mind throughout their lives. What a blessing!
5. Rabbits can adjust readily to different conditions
This is a versatile trait to have, and in our books, very handy too – especially if you are an avid traveller-mum or dad. Exploration and curiosity come naturally to water bunnies, especially for embracing new cultures and environments. We reckon your bub will also be quite the accommodating person, sensitive towards other people’s feelings.
FAMOUS RABBIT BABIES YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT WITH SIMILAR TRAITS
Good news, your bunny is in good company – Albert Einstein, Whitney Houston, David Beckham, Michael Jordan, and Angelina Jolie are all bunnies!
Be proud that your baby will possess the brain power to achieve success and breeze through things with flying colours. As for their looks, we are sure your bunny will be beautiful regardless.
Did you know Tiger Woods happens to be a bunny, too? Psst, are you thinking of a name alteration like we are?
