Under the New Moon of January 21-22, 2023, we move from the Year of the Yang Water Tiger to the Year of the Yin Water Rabbit. The Rabbit represents harmony, peace and hope in Chinese astrology.
Harness the energy of the Year of the Yin Water Rabbit in 2023
Compared to the Tiger, it has a much gentler energetic expression, so 2023 is a good year to take it easy, pay attention to what is most important and prioritize rest and replenishment.
Yin and Water Qualities
The Yin and Water energies of the Year of the Rabbit are soft and gentle energetic expressions. While we are urged to go with the flow, trust our instincts and seek joy, we may also find it difficult to make firm judgments, set boundaries and take risks to achieve our goals.
The yin characteristics of the Rabbit encourage us to act from the heart and remain receptive to universal energy.
Yin energy asks us to keep an open mind, to be receptive to new possibilities and to expand ideas of what we thought was possible, rather than moving forward or confirming what we already know to be true.
You must keep a clear mind and not block yourself with restrictive goals, dreams, attitudes, or even ways of thinking. If you remain flexible, you may be surprised at the turn your life takes.
Learning to Navigate Yin Water
On the other hand, the water element represents going with the flow and being more open to our higher senses.
Last year we had Yang Water, which is associated with fast-moving water and large bodies of water such as the ocean. However, Yin Water is gentler and is associated with rain, lakes and slowly bubbling streams.
Although this year may feel more relaxed and peaceful, there is a danger of becoming stagnant or even feeling stuck in one place. You may find the process of moving forward more difficult, or you may find yourself moving forward quickly before taking an extended pause.
This is also supported by Western astrology, as Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance enters the leisurely and joyful sign of Taurus in May, which may inspire you to adopt a “stop and smell the roses” mentality.
Even though the years have passed and we all need to rest and recharge, you should try a little harder to stay on track, lest you feel stagnant.
Harness the energy of the Yin Water-Rabbit.
You may find yourself giving birth to something new or making room for the new to come, as the Rabbit is associated with creation, fertility and rebirth.
When your creative energy is strong, you may experiment with new perspectives, see things from new angles, or generate truly original ideas.
The transition of Saturn into Pisces in Western astrology also reflects this surge of creative energy. Saturn in Pisces can not only enhance your creativity but also encourage you to turn your ideas into tangible things.
The Yin Water Rabbit is usually a passive energy, so hopefully, the influence of Saturn in Pisces will motivate you to step up and share your ideas with the world.
Remember the parable of the rabbit and the tortoise, where the rabbit, sure he was going to win the race, never put in the effort and lost.
This could be a small lesson for you in the Year of the Rabbit. Don’t lose sight of your ultimate goal, get distracted by unimportant things, or miss an opportunity by falling asleep. Also, don’t let your ego get in the way.
Keeping an open and adaptable mind will help you. Encourage yourself to keep growing and learning and be open to being surprised by the universe.
Take action during the spring or rainy season, depending on where you live, to make progress and get the best results in the Year of the Rabbit. The energies of the Yin Water Rabbit will be of great support to the energies of Mother Earth during this time.
Predictions for the Year of the Yin Water Rabbit
The hospitality and wellness industries, especially those involved in pampering and relaxation, will do exceptionally well in the Year of the Yin Water Rabbit.
The intuitive and expressive qualities of the Yin Water Rabbit will benefit all creative industries.
Strong and fertile energy surrounds us, so this could be a time of great entrepreneurship and small business expansion. More people may also choose to start or expand their families.
Because Yin Water is such a fluid energy, it is not the best choice for handling money. Before money comes in, it may have to go out. If you apply some Feng Shui principles to create abundance, you will be able to balance this situation.
The Year of the Rabbit is ideal for focusing on networking, relationships and growing your community, as it is also associated with love and friendship. The Year of the Rabbit offers strong support if you are looking for love.
Strong water yin energy may bring an increase in water-related natural disasters. You may also want to protect your home from flooding or leaks.
Water Yin energy encourages moderation and trusting your instincts. If you encounter a difficult situation this year, reflect on it and how you can be kind to yourself and others.
