If in the year of the rabbit, if you have experienced a breakup, divorce, and also expected to start again, and even there will be the possibility of flash marriage. On the contrary, if there is no major breakthrough in the Year of the Rabbit, 2024 should be especially cautious. Having said that, the Rooster can still be blessed this year.
