Chinese New Year 2023 - Find out what the year of the Hare means for your Chinese zodiac animal
Updated: Mar 29
Hare's (also known as Rabbits in Chinese astrology) are the luckiest animal with money, love and fame. With a Hare as your lucky charm, expect this year to bring you prosperity, hope and calm.
Hares are often depicted with their head in the clouds, but they are also known to be agile and quick. In 2023, you will be able to navigate life efficiently and thoughtfully while better-managing stress and danger.
While 2022 was a yang year - more action focused, 2023 will be a yin year and much more passive. There will be time for moments of reflection, rest and renewal.
The Chinese New Year is a chance to look back at the good things that have happened over the last year and make resolutions for the year ahead. In this spirit, we’ve taken a closer look at what each Chinese Zodiac sign can expect in 2023.
It will depend on what your Chinese element (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire or Earth) and animal are together to get a deeper insight into what you can expect from 2023. So download our app, which is available on Apple and Android, to find out your personalised Cosmic Fusion sign.
Overall though, here is how the year is looking for each zodiac animal:
Hare (born in 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999)
It's not always the strongest year for your own animal, however, it's still not your worst. Hares, you are calm, quiet and practical so you tend to make the right decisions. You'll have to work very hard to achieve this year but endeavour is rewarded. Relationships will be a bit of a rollercoaster this year so don't set your expectations too high.
Dragon (born in 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000)
Although the Dragon and the Hare have very different personalities, they actually complement each other and work well with one another. Dragons, this isn't a straightforward year for you but it will definitely be an emotionally gratifying one. You need to display great common sense throughout. It's a building year, take time to understand your motivations and what makes you happy.
Snake (born in 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001)
The Hare and Snake don't see eye to eye too often. The gentle Hare doesn't understand the Snake's self-expression and personal desire. A so-so year for you Snakes, it's all about knuckling down and putting the work in. It might not be your most glamourous year but you'll be rewarded if you put the hard graft in now.
Horse (born in 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990)
The Hare and Horse are two very different characters, the Horse can be too confident and flighty for the meek Hare. Last year was a phenomenal year for you Horses, so don't be surprised when you find this year a little more challenging. This isn't the time to be taking risks or gambling. Consolidate, think before you act and let common sense prevail.
Goat (born in 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991)

Dream, manifest and believe in everything you do. Your career is bright and your relationships are going from strength to strength. Just relax and enjoy it.
Monkey (born in 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004)
Monkey's and Hare's bond on an intellectual and mental level so this year is looking bright on the career front for you, Monkeys. Professionally speaking this year has so much potential. Your career is going from strength to strength. This is the time to take a few risks, it's likely they'll pay off. Relationships will probably bring you unbridled joy too.
Rooster (born in 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005)
A very challenging year for you Roosters. The Hare is your nemesis in Chinese astrology so it's no surprise this year isn't going to be your best. Just try and stay focused this year. This is as tough as it gets. You need to grind it out because next year is bliss, the year of the Dragon.

Tiger (born in 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2022)
Tigers, this is another okay year for you, we just left the year of the Tiger which was an average year for you and the year of the Hare is following the same theme.
