The first day of the 2011 Chinese New Year is on February 3, 2011 in China's time zone. But the astrological Rabbit begins on February 4, 2011. The difference is because Chinese New Year uses the lunar calendar and the Chinese Five Element astrology uses the solar calendar.
2011 is the Year of Metal Rabbit . The color of Metal in Five Elements system is related to White, Yellow or Golden. Therefore we can say 2011 is a White Rabbit, Yellow Rabbit, Metal Rabbit or Golden Rabbit year.
In Chinese Five Element (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) astrology, Rabbit is in the Wood group. That means 2011 contains Metal and wood. Metal and Wood are opposite elements; they have fighting relationship. Basically, most of people should good and bad news in 2011.
To predict good or bad luck for a person, we have to know that Metal or Wood is his or her lucky element first. You can find the lucky element from Chinese Astrology Lucky Element at http://www.chinesefortunecalendar.com/Chineseastrology.htm
site. The lucky element is determined using Chinese Five Element Balance theory. If Metal or Wood is the lucky element, then the person has better chance to hear the good news in 2011.
To predict what will happen in 2011 for a person, we have to know which element represents the person from the Chinese astrology birth chart. The element of the Day Column (a,k.a. Day Master) in the birth chart represents the person. If Day Mater is Metal, then Rabbit Wood is related to money, and Metal of 2011 represents friends, siblings or coworkers. If Day Mater is Earth, then Rabbit is related to career or pressure, and Metal of 2011 represents child, performance or reputation. If Day Mater is Fire, then Rabbit is related to parents, protection, education, energy, and Metal of 2011 represents wealth etc. Day Master and the birth chart are in the Chinese Astrology Lucky Element page.
Everybody has different Chinese astrology birth chart. Different elements or animals together might build attraction or fighting relationship. These relationships will chance the result of developing events in 2011. If the result of the relationship is favorable to the lucky element, then the good fortune definitely deliver to the person. If the result of the relationship is unfavorable to the lucky element, then the person can see the chance is coming, but the dream never come true.The 2011 Fortune Variation is determined by Five Elements and Animal Relationships
2011 is Female Metal Rabbit year. If your birth chart contains Male Fire, then your social relationship with people will be good. If Male Fire is your Day Master and you are a male, then it's possible that a love relationship will come to you in 2011.
Because Female Metal and Male Fire have Stem Attraction Relationship into Water, therefore, if Water is your lucky element, then 2011 will be a good year to you.
Dog and Rabbit have Branch Attraction Relationship into Fire. If Dog is in your birth chart, then your people relationship will good. If Fire is also your lucky element, then you can get what you want in 2011.
If both Dragon and Tiger are in the birth chart, then they will gather with Rabbit to become the most strongest Wood combination. That means this will be a wonderful year for people whose luck element is Wood. If Wood represents your Child Star, then you will win your good reputation from many people. But if Wood is the unlucky element, then we have to prepare to handle the dispute and quarrel.
If you have only one Dragon or only one Tiger in the birth chart, then it still can enforce the strength of Rabbit Wood. People with lucky element Wood still can receive the benefit of strong Rabbit. The best month of the year will be the Tiger month or Dragon month.
If both Pig and Sheep are in the birth chart, then they will join with Rabbit to form the most powerful Wood combination. That means Wood lucky element people will have a big surprise year. If Wood represents your Money Star, then you will see your wealth is growing in 2011. But if Wood is the unlucky element, then we have to prepare the big impact.
If only Pig in the birth chart, Pig and Rabbit still make a strong Wood combination. This is because that Pig contains Wood and Water. Water is the Mother Element of Wood. When Rabbit fights with Metal, the Wood won't be alone. Water helps Wood to weaken the Metal. This is a good sign for People with lucky element Wood.
Horse and Rabbit don't have any attraction relationship. Horse is in Fire Group. Rabbit can help Fire to burn. If the birth chart has Horse and the lucky element is Fire, then the person will have a smooth year. Also, Rabbit is the Romantic Star of Horse. That implies a love event is coming.
We can see that Rabbit has full or some degree of attraction with many animals. People born in year of Tiger, Dragon, Horse, Sheep, Dog or Pig have the chance of being in love. People born in the day of Tiger, Dragon, Horse, Sheep, Dog or Pig have the same chance of love opportunity.
If the Male Fire Dog is in the Year Column or Day Column of the birth chart, then the person will have a very close relationship with an opposite sex in 2011. If you are a man, then there is the good chance of marriage.
Chicken and Rabbit have Fighting Relationship, which imply poor people relationship. If the Female Fire Chicken or Female Wooden Chicken in the Year Column or Day Column of the birth chart, then this is the case of Double Stem-Branch Fighting Relationship. This is a bad sign of instability, accident, separation, dispute, hostility and poor health. These type of persons should use conservative attitude and approach to face the unexpected challenges in 2011.
