Fire Rabbit changing jobs
Hi, in your prediction, there may be competition at work for fire rabbit. Would it help if I decide to leave my current job?

I noticed in your graph that April to May are the best montha for rabbits' career. So far, my April is the worst. What should I do?

Answered by Amada | Apr. 23, 2023 20:16

I think the prediction is in general for most, not everyone.
Anyway, if it's indeed your fortune, the competition exists even if you change the job. If you really want to change it, find a better one before quitting the current one.
