Questions & Answers on Year of the Rabbit
Asked by Harley from AUSTRALIA | Mar. 14, 2020 09:22Reply
I'd like to know if i am rabbit or a dragon?
My birthday is 31/01/2000
I am born in Australia which i believe had a leap year, would that affect anything? like make me born on the dragon month instead? I have been scouting online for information regarding it. And i have heard even saying there are cusps for this birthday meaning you can land on either one of them because the sun goes into Aquarius which ins a 5 day cycle. anyways i'd really like to know regardless.

I'd like to add that i relate HEAVILY to the dragon side, and i only partially relate to rabbit on a few things. I also have done a bit of digging and i read you can take on BOTH signs being so close to each of them, which would be an "Animal Cusp", although they haven't added it to any astrology sites. Anyways it would be super helpful.
