Rabbit (Hare)



In many other descriptions, you are called a rabbit or a cat. You’re not – you are 100% Hare.

Picture Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and that mad march Hare nervously jumping around and being somewhat deliriously confused. There you have the archetypal Hare – delightfully batty and curiously whimsical.

There is quite simply no other animal quite like the Hare; you have a quantum of madness, which makes other animal signs somewhat disturbed at times. When you become erratic in your behaviour your usual clever, discreet and smart persona goes for a walk. Otherwise, you are a poetic mystic with a love of excellence and beauty in all things, crisply intuitive… with a huge heart… with loads of good intentions… and with a deeply tuned emotional antenna.

You are a Hare. Being secretive is second nature to you and you always know exactly what’s happening. You’re reserved demeanour means no one would suspect you are such a clever information gatherer – and to help you – you fake your crankiness so people will tell you more than they mean to. The trouble is, you keep everything to yourself. Like the Hare, your sensitivity to the slightest vibration from everything going on around you means you have your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground.

Thus, you would make a great counsellor if ever you’d learn to offer something back! So, yes you are a Hare, and you know who you are – because you study these kinds of things.

Business & Career

In spite of their preference for shocking honesty, if Hares could get rid of their shyness, they would make wonderful politicians. They have a detailed and exact way when working, so any profession that relies a lot on detail and precision will fit them; and as such they can be great scientists, pharmacists or chemists, especially as they like security at work, but also as researchers and organisers, they are perfect due to their calm and exact application of their innate skills. They also have a talent for spotting tendencies in economics, so they can play and win big on the stock or currency markets.

Actually, if you really want to understand how a Hare works, just look at that mad scientist, slaving away in the lab day in day out… trying to discover the undiscoverable, all for the sake of improving some technological aspect of your car’s breaking system, to make it safer… to make the world a safer place! Other lesser creatures can only ponder your unique way of thinking – which in reality helps you make quantum leaps of logic and imagination; lateral thinking should have been invented by a Hare (but ironically, its founding father is Edward de Bono, the Hare’s opposite, a Rooster) and you work a lot, as work is very important to you – albeit erratically – and you are so bright and clever you can provide solutions before everyone else even knows there is a problem. Thus, to do something that didn’t use your brain would be considered a waste of time.

Hares often choose to be self-employed rather than be someone’s slave; they aren’t good team players, and will either work with a select group of only a few well-trusted colleagues if they must – or otherwise, they just prefer to work alone.

The Hare is not a trendsetter and doesn’t create lots of unique ideas, but is certainly excellent at finishing things. So, any job that needs perseverance and meticulousness, then the Hare should be first choice – it will never let you down.

Finally, Hares have the ability to focus on problems and solve them; they thus also make outstanding lawyers, mediators, diplomats, and accountants, as they have an uncanny grasp of the law and how to apply this to get the best results.


Romance & Relationship

As a very reserved person, your partner may protest that they never really know what’s going on with you – and them; why not risk opening up a bit more from time to time and tell them how you feel. Inside, you are a true romantic who loves classical music, lavish surroundings, soft lighting, clean sheets, flowers, candlelight dinners and your conventional view of romance and love could be called old-fashioned when it comes to courtship and seduction. But you seldom show it openly and definitely don’t like to stay in a relationship if it doesn’t match your high expectations. Thus, ending a relationship could be pretty easy for you, once you tested the waters.

So, all in all, if you need security, don’t necessarily get hitched with a Hare; whatever you do, they will treat you like a diplomat treats everyone who they meet – with a polite and genteel manner that belies their inner guile. You can think they are passionless, but it’s brewing deep inside, and even though they never get angry or shout (much) it’s just they don’t like to show their feelings – particularly if it’s someone close, such as a lover.

Nevertheless, once Hares make up their mind that commitment is a normal human activity, Hares can make exceedingly dedicated lovers.

If you are looking for a wild time in bed, then better over-look the Hare. They like romance and cuddling and pillow talk. They can try this and that – if you insist, but unless it is tasteful and involves peaceful activities, better don’t try. Hares are thoughtful, caring, unoriginal lovers. They do like gentle lovemaking – and can indulge quite a lot – if it involves roses and pastel coloured sheets; just don’t keep the lights on, forget anything risqué and you will both have a lovely time.

Hares like the sanctuary and warmth of marriage, but will often decline to make a marriage proposal or reject one if they are unsure because they are dreadfully picky. They are rather introverted and like their solitude so placing their heart on their sleeves in front of a bunch of onlookers isn’t their cup of tea! And unless you are marrying a Hare and you are also one, you might very well end up regretting it. They just want peace, so if you can handle their eccentricities and sometimes bizarre behaviour, then you might just have to force the issue – and they might just say yes – if only to keep the peace!



Hares adore a comfy, peaceful, steady life; small children produce a bit too much chaos, racket, muddle, mess, and clutter for Hares to be truly at ease. The Hare is simply a bit too free to get into being in deep with a family unit. If the Hare’s family is ready to give it its freedom, then the Hare can relax and enjoy! If they cannot, then the Hare will vanish faster than you can say “Hare today, gone tomorrow…”
