Rabbit Personality

Rabbits are very complex creatures. Those born under this sign tend to be humble, yet ambitious, sociable, but secretive, intuitive, as well as tactful, and incredibly creative. Rabbits are very refined. Their idea of a nice night out is dinner and conversation, rather than partying hard. Rabbits have an easy time accepting their circumstances. They are also quite lucky when it comes to fruitful opportunities. However, they are not great at making important decisions and will often put them off.

Rabbits believe that there is a certain way to do things. Anything that changes or goes against what they believe is proper will be difficult for the rabbit to handle. Rabbits also have a hard time dealing with change and adjusting to new people and things. They also really dislike when things are not tidy!

Rabbits are very kind and compassionate people, full of nurturing empathy and consideration for others. They make excellent confidants because they don't like to talk behind people's backs. For this reason many people find it easy to talk to rabbits. Rabbits can seem a bit standoffish at first since they are shy and don't immediately show affection to people they are not entirely comfortable with yet. Once a rabbit is comfortable, though, they are lots of fun to be around. They have a fantastic sense of humor that appeals to many, but they are terrible at telling jokes!

They are creative types that will work hard towards their goals. Even though they'll never back down from a challenge, they prefer things to be straightforward without any obstacles.

Rabbits aren't particularly fond of travel, as they are most comfortable in their own environment and take a lot of time getting to know their surroundings as much as possible. The things they enjoy the most are spending time outdoors, eating good food, and shopping, especially for clothes and makeup. They also enjoy reading and have the ability to remember lots of information.

Rabbits in Relationships

Rabbits take a little time to warm up to people, but once they do, they're very friendly. They are pacifists who cannot tolerate injustice and violence. They will avoid confrontation at any cost. Due to this they will often avoid issues that do not affect them directly, even if they sympathize with those in that situation.

Being apart of a group proves difficult for the rabbit since, by nature, they are independent and solitary creatures. However, they love being doted on by others and socializing. Rabbits thoroughly enjoy stimulating conversations, although they will often keep their more critical opinions to themselves. Despite being very peaceful, if a rabbit is hurt they are known to retaliate verbally with sarcasm and humor.

Rabbits make exceptional parents since they know how to balance love and discipline better than most. They are warm and nurturing to their loved ones, but they will not stand for bad behavior. Any kids of a rabbit will be well dressed and well mannered.

Rabbit Careers

Rabbits will do well working for non-profits and charity. They make good doctors, counsellors, politicians, lawyers, and teachers. They also enjoy working with children and animals.

Rabbits and Money

Rabbits always repay their debts--and on time. If they feel they owe you one, they'll work hard to return the favor. They expect others to handle their debts in a similar fashion, but aren't naïve enough to believe that everyone thinks and acts like them. If a rabbit doesn't trust you to pay your dues, they will never lend you money. If you are late making a payment, believe that a rabbit will expect to be paid interest.

Rabbits do well in business because they are very wise, give great advice when it is needed, and have the ability to bring people together. They are hard workers, but need a schedule to work and live by. They also do not enjoy working long hours because having time to enjoy their social life is extremely important to them.

      I thought I might be a rabbit until I read, "they are strong-willed and aggressive." Wish I had more of that. Thanks for another good share.
