Who Is the Rabbit Compatible With?

The Rabbit is seen as a smart and tactful sign in the Chinese Zodiac. They think everything through and rarely act impulsively, which can seem a bit jarring to the more carefree signs out there. So, what’s their zodiac compatibility like?

See a full list of additional Resources at the end of the article.

The Rabbit is compatible with Dog, Sheep/Goat, and Pig. They share a high tendency of emotional intimacy with Dogs. The imaginative Goat is attracted to the artsy Rabbit. Rabbits make a dream couple with Pigs since both signs are equally forgiving and loving. But they strongly clash with the Roosters.

Rabbits tend to be tough and cautious at the start of their relationships, and they won’t let their guard down as quickly as some of the other signs, but they’re super nice once they open up. Read on to see how they match up to their pairs and clashes!

Pig Compatibility

Pigs are full of life, and the passionate Rabbit has a special appreciation for this quality. In return, the Pig also loves the Rabbit’s artsy tendencies and how they keep making creative improvements around the house.

These two signs form a seamless bond that’s filled with fun and mutual adoration.

They’re also good at handling each other’s weaknesses, such as the Rabbit’s pessimism and the Pig’s earthiness. Both signs find ways to accept each other’s imperfections since they’re both known to be two of the most compassionate signs in the Chinese Zodiac.

Sheep/Goat Compatibility

If you’re a Sheep and just can’t get enough romance in your relationships, look for a Rabbit soulmate. Both signs are imaginative enough to come up with the most butterfly-inducing ideas and sensitive enough to respond well to them.

But the sheep compatibility of a rabbit isn’t just through romance. Even as friends, the two signs always find ways to have tons of fun.

Neither character is a nay-sayer when trying new things, thanks in part to their imaginative nature. They’re easy to please and draw pleasure from sharing their happiness. So, a rabbit and a sheep can have a fun time with an activity as simple as painting.

The rabbit isn’t overly ambitious, but thankfully, neither is the sheep. Together, the couple lives in the moment and always finds a way to make the best out of it.

Dog Compatibility

Dogs and Rabbits share a natural tendency for building a deep mutual connection. The dog finds the perfect channel for its innate loyalty with a rabbit since rabbits are always there for them in times of need.

Besides love and support, the rabbit is also a remarkable homemaker. They pay great attention to details on every aspect of the exterior and interior, making it the perfect place to live in harmony for the dog and rabbit.

Since both the signs are generally empathetic, they won’t go around throwing hurtful remarks at each other, especially during an ugly argument. They both take a step back and get quieter in conflict, but the dog will most likely initiate a productive conversation to fix things.

Overall, the dog’s rabbit compatibility is superb.

Primary combinations discussed:

  • Sheep/Goat and Pig are “Three Harmony”, or “Elemental” combinations.
  • The Dog is a “Six Harmony” combination.
  • Bonus combination: Rabbit + Tiger + Dragon = “Directional” or “Seasonal” combination. The Rabbit is the central figure, the Tiger and Dragon have no affinity otherwise.


In Vietnam the Rabbit is called the Cat! There are a few theories around why this is the case, but no-one seems to agree on the etymology. A cat is usually considered to be a Tiger, so who knows exactly where this began.

Primary Clash: Rooster

As far as romantic sparks are concerned, there’s little to nothing of that sort between the Rooster and Rabbit. The Chinese Zodiac compatibility standards put this pair as one of the least compatible matchups out there, and that’s saying something.

From the Rabbit’s point of view, everything about the Rooster is rough and messy. The Rabbit is the exact opposite, which is what starts most of the arguments between the two.

The Rooster would have to act civilized while the Rabbit must be extremely patient to make things work. If they manage to do that, the fine minds of both these signs can work wonders together.

The Tiger's Difficult Relationships

The Rabbit also clashes with the Dragon*, Rat, and Horse, though the differences won’t be nearly as bad as a Rooster matchup.

  • The Rabbit and Rooster are “Cardinal” signs along with the Rat and Horse. The biggest hurdle is working out who’s the boss on a daily basis.
  • The Rooster combines with the Dragon, so “the friend of my enemy is my enemy” comes into play. This is one of the “Six Harms”. * If the Tiger is present, the Dragon combines instead of harming.


People born in the year of the Rabbit tend to have an exciting personality consisting of wits, intelligence, and a strategic mindset.

However, only their closest loved ones can really get to know them.

Their relatively pessimistic nature doesn’t allow them to trust people so quickly, which is why love interests would need to work extra hard to get Rabbits to let their guard down. According to the zodiac signs compatibility, Dogs, Goats, and Pigs would have the best shot at that!
