It has given me insight, understanding and guidance as I've learned about parenting both biological and adopted children.
And it has helped me as a business owner make timely and productive decisions. I believe that we are here on this planet to learn, grow and contribute.
Astrology finds meaning in cosmic patterns. An early mention that there is a rabbit on the moon appears in the Chu Ci , a Western Han anthology of Chinese poems from the Warring States period , which notes that along with a toad , there is a rabbit on the moon who constantly pounds herbs for the immortals.
This notion is supported by later texts, including the Imperial Readings of the Taiping Era encyclopedia of the Song Dynasty.
During his life he was almost as famous for imbibing wine as he was for his poetry, so there may be a grain of truth in the story, although it has never been verified.
Interestingly, the Chinese language does not make a huge distinguish between rabbits and hares, so in English translations of Chinese folklore and mythology this celestial lagomorph is more frequently referred to as a hare.
Also in Japan is the mid-autumn, or Jugo-ya, festival. As in China and Korea, people gather to watch the full moon and children sing a song about the moon rabbit called "Usagi", or "Rabbit".
As is the case in Japan, the Korean moon rabbit pounds rice cakes in its pestle as well. Another Asian country where the moon rabbit can be found is Vietnam.
They have a very similar legend to the Japanese and Buddhist legend about a white rabbit named Tho Trang. This legend has become a popular tale during the Mid-Autumn festival.
There are many possible reasons why this major difference between the Chinese and Vietnamese zodiac calendars exists, but it's widely agreed that since rabbits are not native to Vietnam, cats have taken their place in the Vietnamese zodiac calendar.
Believe it or not, the moon rabbit - as well as the moon goddess Chang'e - were topics of discussion between the Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin and the mission controllers in Houston just before the space capsule landed on the moon!
Here is an excerpt from the Apollo 11 transcripts of their conversation:. Houston: Among the large headlines concerning Apollo this morning, there's one asking that you watch for a lovely girl with a big rabbit.
An ancient legend says a beautiful Chinese girl called Chang-o has been living there for years. It seems she was banished to the Moon because she stole the pill of immortality from her husband.
You might also look for her companion, a large Chinese rabbit, who is easy to spot since he is always standing on his hind feet in the shade of a cinnamon tree.
The name of the rabbit is not reported. In this movie, a clown named Pierrot longs for the moon as well as the rabbit in the moon and every night tries desperately to jump in the air and catch it.
He does this until another clown named Harlequin comes along, teases him, and introduces him to a female clown named Columbina.
The children's book "The Rice-Cake Rabbit" by Betty Jean Lifton is about the moon rabbit, or Shiro as he's named in the book, and his quest to become a samurai rather than a rice cake-pounder.
His name means "moon" in rabbit language, but the rabbits in this novel worship the sun and believe it to be the giver of all life rather than the moon.
The American electronic group Rabbit in the Moon also derives its name from the legend of the moon rabbit. Hofman - who is famous for his mega-sized rubber duck that skirted the coast of China and made its way across the straits of Taiwan in - created the rabbit out of 12, pieces of Tyvek and left it on the side of a bunker at the former naval base where the art festival was held.
With the breeze blowing its "fur" and lying on the bunker, the rabbit looked as if it was staring at the clouds in the sky and daydreaming. Sadly enough, just a day after the festival concluded on Sept.
The rabbit may be gone, but it lives on in the many pictures that were taken of it, and in the hearts and memories of those who were lucky enough to see it up close!
Just as it has done for many millinea now, the moon rabbit is still pounding rice cakes and the elixir of life in its pestle and is still up there in the moon for everyone on Earth to see during the nights of the full moon.
Thank you for your visit and if you haven't seen the moon bunny before now, just be sure to go outside and look at the next full moon.
It's sure to be there looking back at you! How imagination could run riot. Even religious stories cling to each other.
I have already planned my next one with title 'The rabbit who flew' or 'The flying rabbit'. Which title you prefer? The rabbit is believed to be a Bodhisattva.
The moon rabbit legend is popular and part of local folklore throughout Asia. The trio has become the personifications of the holiday, when they descend to the mortal world and give out cellophane lanterns , mooncakes and gifts to children.
Presumed to be arising likewise, through lunar pareidolia , legends of moon rabbits also exist among some of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.
These legends are not considered to have been influenced by Asian cultures. In Mayan art, glyphs, hieroglyphics, and inscriptions, a rabbit frequently is shown with their Moon Goddess and another deity related to the moon.
According to an Aztec legend, the god Quetzalcoatl , then living on Earth as a human, started on a journey and, after walking for a long time, became hungry and tired.
With no food or water around, he thought he would die. Then a rabbit grazing nearby offered herself as food to save his life.
Quetzalcoatl, moved by the rabbit's noble offering, elevated her to the Moon, then lowered her back to Earth and told her, "You may be just a rabbit, but everyone will remember you; there is your image in light, for all people and for all times.
Another Mesoamerican legend tells of the brave and noble sacrifice of Nanahuatzin during the creation of the fifth sun. Humble Nanahuatzin sacrificed himself in fire to become the new sun, but the wealthy god Tecciztecatl hesitated four times before he finally set himself alight to become the Moon.
Due to Tecciztecatl's cowardice, the deities felt that the Moon should not be so bright as the sun, so one of the deities threw a rabbit at his face to diminish his light.
Farther north in America in a region now identified as ranging across Canada and United States, a Cree cultural legend tells a different story, about a young rabbit who wished to ride the Moon.
Only the crane was willing to take him there. The trip stretched the crane's legs as the heavy rabbit held them tightly, leaving them elongated as the legs of all cranes are now.
