Kung Hei Fat Choi! The Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year is here, so let us captivate all the good vibes this 2023!
More than 2 billion of the world's population celebrates Chinese New Year annually, including countries in East and Southeast Asia. In the Philippines, Chinese New Year is a holiday that Filipinos look forward to due to our thriving Filipino-Chinese communities.
2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit. According to Chinese Astrology, the Rabbit mainly symbolizes longevity, peace, and prosperity – which, when translated this year, will symbolize patience and hope. However, this loving animal is also known for being gentle, creative, and cautious. For us to progress and become prosperous in 2023, we must become like the Rabbit.
In addition, this year will bring qualities that the previous year lacked. Compared to a dramatic year in 2022, this year is about peace, success, healing, and abundance, where patience and hope will play a big part.

To help usher in the year of the Water Rabbit, here’s a guide so you can get the best of what's to come.
Rabbits are known to be creative and inventive creatures. As such, they take critical situations and opportunities calmly and rationally. Like the Rabbit, you must also be witty with ways to absorb prosperity by incorporating lucky trends in your daily life. From clothes to collectibles, there are a lot of things you do.
You can decorate your house with magenta-colored curtains or find some bed sheets that match the color of the year – Viva Magenta. If you do not have any items in that color, you can use furniture with colors close to its shade, such as fuchsia, pink, or red, with subtleties like dots or lines. In addition, you can add furniture items with water element features, such as vases, paintings, and stones.
TIP: Add some Rabbit-inspired materials like ceramics, statues, keychains, and other affordable ones that you can display at home.
Building good connections and relationships with people will bring good luck this year. Part of the qualities of the Rabbit is being playful. As a result, they tend to be comfortable and open to who they encounter – building harmonious bonds with people. Like the Rabbit, it is high time to develop relationships and connections. With that, you can take advantage of this opportunity to take your career to the next level. But most importantly, let us not forget to say kind words to others.
You can take advantage of the positive energy and opportunities the year can bring to your health. Self-care is a trait found within the Rabbit. So you must do things that will improve or maintain your health to bring luck this year. These tasks include eating nutritious food, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and, most importantly, drinking plenty of water. These things can maintain a healthy lifestyle to achieve abundance.

Since this year was predicted to have fewer complications than the previous year, you should be able to get started with your finances. This year is an excellent opportunity to strive for investment. The Rabbit is known to be cautious and vigilant. It would help if you also considered a suitable investment depending on your current finances. You must not also throw your money elsewhere and verify first the authenticity of that investment.
As the new year begins, expect more challenges and opportunities that may come along the way. However, let us be cautious with our end goals, as we should approach this year with patience and hope.
If you want an opportunity to unlock prosperity this year, property ownership is one of the best conservative and relatively safe investments.
