Astrology has helped me make peace with the too-early death of my mother at age 17 and the shattering loss of my identical twin at age It has given me insight, understanding and guidance as I've learned about parenting both biological and adopted children.

It did just that and asked for nothing in return except some clothes and often changed from man to woman. After curing the city of this plague, it returned to the moon.
To this day toy figurines of the rabbit wearing armor and riding a tiger, lion, elephant, or deer are popular toys among children and adults alike!
In December , China launched its first unmanned moon probe to explore a region of the moon known as Sinus Iridum , or the Bay of Rainbows. This moon probe was named, appropriately enough, Jade Rabbit!
Sadly enough, Jade Rabbit suffered some malfunctions on the moon's surface and completely down before the mission was complete. Fortunately, the mission was not a complete failure as it still managed to relay data back to Earth and ultimately left China's "footprint" on the moon.
The Aztecs believe that the god Quetzalcoatl lived on the earth as a man at one time. He started on a journey and after traveling on foot for some time, became tired and hungry.
Since there was nothing to drink and no food around, he thought he would die. However, the rabbit was grazing and found the man.
She offered herself as food to save his life. Quetzalcoatl, humbled by the rabbit's offer to sacrifice herself for his well-being, then took the rabbit to the moon and brought her back to Earth, telling her "You are just a rabbit, but you will be remembered by everyone.
Your image is in the light of the moon for all people of all times. The Cree also have a story about the moon rabbit.
The rabbit wanted to ride the moon, but only the crane would take him. The big rabbit held on to the crane's skinny legs and as a result, its legs were stretched during the course of the trip.
This is why the crane's legs are now elongated. When they touched down on the moon, the rabbit touched the crane's head with a bloody paw, rewarding him with the red marks on his head that the crane has to this very day.
Up to this very day the rabbit still rides to the moon. The moon rabbit is also popular in Japan. In Japanese the rabbit in the moon is known as "Tsuki no Usagi".
There is a famous story about him in Japan that goes:. Monkey climbed a tree and brought him some fruit. Fox went to a stream, caught a fish, and brought it back to him.
But Rabbit had nothing to offer him but some grass. So he asked the beggar to build a fire. After the beggar started the fire, Rabbit jumped into it and offered himself as a meal for the beggar to eat.
Quickly the beggar changed back into the Old Man of the Moon and pulled Rabbit from the fire. He said "You are most kind, Rabbit, but don't do anything to harm yourself.
The folklore originated in China and then spread to other Asian cultures. In Chinese folklore , the rabbit often is portrayed as a companion of the Moon goddess Chang'e , constantly pounding the elixir of life for her; but in Japanese and Korean versions, the rabbit is pounding the ingredients for mochi or some other type of rice cakes.
In some Chinese versions, the rabbit pounds medicine for the mortals. Unrelated moon folklore arising among native cultures of the Americas , also have rabbit themes and characters.
An early Chinese source called the Chu Ci , a Western Han anthology of Chinese poems from the Warring States period , notes that along with a toad , there is a hare on the Moon who constantly pounds herbs for the immortals.
This notion is supported by later texts, including the Song -era Taiping Imperial Reader. As rabbits were not yet introduced to China during Western Han, the original image was not a rabbit but a hare.
In the Buddhist Jataka tales ,  Tale relates that a monkey, an otter, a jackal, and a rabbit resolved to practice charity on the day of the full moon Uposatha , believing a demonstration of great virtue would earn a great reward.
When an old man begged for food from them, the monkey gathered fruits from the trees and the otter collected fish, while the jackal found a lizard and a pot of milk-curd.
The rabbit, who knew only how to gather grass, instead offered its own body, throwing itself into a fire the man had prepared.
The rabbit, was not burnt, however. It is said the lunar image is still draped in the smoke that rose when the rabbit cast itself into the fire.
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.
But that makes not the slightest difference. This long-eared furry creature has a special place in the hearts of many. We all know when we see the rabbit in the moon.
Having lived in the East for many years, I have come to respect the creative spirit which drives the arts and crafts in this part of the world, adorning even the simplest and humblest of artifacts.
