This year, 2023, is the Year of the Rabbit – fourth in line on the Chinese zodiac. The last Year of the Rabbit was in 2011, and if you are born in 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, or 2023 you are known as a Rabbit.
The Rabbit is a “symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity” in Chinese culture and 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope. People born in a Year of the Rabbit are believed to be “vigilant, witty, quick-minded, and ingenious”.
Next year, 2024, is the Year of the Dragon. The last Year of the Dragon was in 2012, and if you are born in 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, or 2024 you are known as a Dragon.
The Dragon is the fifth of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals and it symbolises “power, nobleness, honour, luck, and success” in Chinese culture. The Dragon “is a supernatural being with no parallel for talent and excellence”, China Highlights explains.
The next year of the Snake takes place in 2025, 12 years after the last one. According to Chinese astrology, you are a Snake if you were born in 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, or 2013.
In Chinese traditional culture, dragons are described as the largest of serpents, therefore, Chinese people believe snakes are ‘small dragons’, astrologers explain. They are ambiguous characters with “great seductive power and mystery”.
According to Chinese astrology, people born in the Year of the Snake are usually calm observers with excellent intuition, as serene as snakes, and generally demonstrate intelligence, wisdom, and creativity.
