Chinese New Year 2011: Be a Smart Rabbit

The celebration of the Chinese New Year is a centuries old tradition.  It marks the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs.  The Year of 2011 is the Year of the Golden Rabbit, which begins on February 3, 2011 and ends on January 22, 2012.  The Rabbit is the fourth sign of the Chinese Zodiac and is considered a lucky sign.

According to Chinese tradition, those born in the Year of the Rabbit are friendly individuals who enjoy the company of good friends.  They are good teachers, counselors and communicators, but also need privacy and their own space.

According to Chinese tradition, the rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves.  It is a time to focus on home, family, security, diplomacy, and your relationships with women and children.   Make it a goal to create a safe, peaceful lifestyle, so you will be able to calmly deal with any problem that may arise.

Sounds like a perfect year to appreciate the most important things in your life and to protect those closest to you.  Take a look at life insurance coverage and consider buying some to keep your family’s lifestyle safe should something happen to the head of your household.  If you have a policy, is it enough to pay off a mortgage, a child’s future education? It is easy to determine how much you need with online life insurance calculators and instant insurance quotes to see what it will cost.

Be a rabbit this year and take a calm and introspective approach to the decisions you make.  If you want to know if you were born in the year of the rabbit or don’t know what zodiac sign corresponds to you, check out your horoscope online for your birth year.
