Chinese Horoscope Predictions for 2023 – Year of the Water Rabbit
According to Chinese astrology, the Water Rabbit year is a harbinger of more peaceful times ahead.
In Chinese astrology, the Water element in its Yin form represents sensitivity, pondering, humility, intuition, and lucidity. Yin Water creates in those who have it in their chart 4 Pillars of Destiny, a taste for the search of multiple variants of hidden or mysterious phenomena. In itself, the Yin Water is the symbol of internalization and assimilation of past trials and of intuitive awakening. The strong presence of this element in 2023 offers the opportunity to refine consciousness and lay the foundations for inner peace. With the help of introspection and spiritual meditation, the Yin Water allows for the outbreak of soul work and self-knowledge. 2023 is about seeking wisdom and elevation. But not everything is positive about this element (Yin Water). When in imbalance, it can generate troubled feelings, a melancholic anxiety, hypocrisy in social relationships, and escape from reality.
The other element of this year is the Yin Wood. In Chinese metaphysics the Yin Wood is represented by bamboo. Bamboo has a flexible stem, so it bends but does not break. This quality will bring us more resilience, which is the ability to deal with problems, adapt to change, and overcome obstacles, often by giving them new meaning. Quite different from the year 2022, a year of Yang Wood that brought us intolerance and aggressiveness, generating a lot of disputes and even wars.
The Yang Wood resembles the trunk of a tree, therefore it has no flexibility and under pressure it breaks. Who doesn’t remember the episode during the presentation of the Academy Awards 2022, when actor Will Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock in the face? Attitudes like that, impetuous and aggressive, lose steam in 2023.
Chinese Horoscope Predictions for 2023
Overall, the whole world will benefit from the influence of the Rabbit, always self-aware enough to avoid rash decisions and think before acting. The keen analytical skills of a Rabbit protect not only themselves, but also others, as they play the role of peacemaker in any difficult situation.
The Rabbit is an animal linked to introspection. While introspection can be a strength, in excess it can lead to pessimism and self-isolation. The antidote? Staying away from the action and in the loving company of good friends and family. We must not forget that the Rabbit is a house animal, which likes and needs to spend time inside its “burrow”.
People born in the Year of the Rabbit are realistic and creative. However, whenever their happiness is at stake, they can easily avoid reality. The Rabbit favors the pursuit of their personal satisfaction, avoiding the winding and tiring roads, or head-on disputes. In extreme cases, the Rabbit will choose without hesitation to isolate itself from the world in order to survive peacefully undisturbed.
After a hectic and also violent Year of the Tiger, where all rules of dialogue seem to have been flouted, in favor of conflict and altercations; 2023 is a year of welcome remission. The art of diplomacy and compromise resurfaces in international relations, bringing a breath of fresh air to the heavy and suffocating atmosphere that dominated the past year.
Moreover, the irresponsible behavior of many political leaders is no longer fooling many people. 2023 brings the possibility of more agreements between countries. The issue of human rights is at the center of international concerns, as are ecological and sustainability issues. Peaceful social movements will emerge around the world, calling for profound changes in society, beyond the self-centered quest for improved personal comfort.
Year of the Water Rabbit in Health
As there is a total absence of the Fire element in this year of the Water Rabbit, we must then beware of diseases related to the heart, brain (or nervous system), and eyes.
The Water element is related to the kidneys, urinary system, and sexual organs. Any imbalance in relation to this element can bring some problem in these organs.
The Earth element, like Fire, is also absent during the year 2023, and can bring problems regarding the digestive system, cellular system, and muscles.
And finally, special attention to people who have the Rooster in their 4 Pillars of Destiny chart. The Rooster and the Rabbit have opposite energies, and this can bring pain and/or problems in the spine, neck, and joints.
Industries that benefit in 2023
The Water and Wood element of 2023 are expected to bring prosperity to the metal, banking, high-tech, automotive, machinery, engineering, beauty and skin care industries.
The mining, insurance, software, communications, transportation, and shipping industries will also prosper.
The textile, media, paper, magazine, gardening and landscaping industries, on the other hand, will face very serious competition.
May the Year of the Water Rabbit bring us more peace, harmony, and wisdom!
