White Rabbit. Briar Rabbit. Peter Rabbit. These soft, fast, prolific cuties have wiggled their way through the burrows of childhood to beckon, play, and teach us about gaining new perceptions in changing and challenging worlds.
Who could forget Bugs Bunny: crafty and chewing those good-for-you carrots? Or Thumper, friend to Bambi and all the other forest creatures? Remember Winnie the Pooh’s pal “Rabbit”, the busy one always planning and organizing? Then there is the most famous of them all, “The Easter Bunny”, that mythical mammal who hides colored eggs and chocolate for children, a blending of ancient pagan and Christian ritual celebrating resurrection and new life.
Cross culturally, Rabbits symbolize fertility and co-creation. They can breed and give birth every six weeks for up to an average of four years! If you are trying to breed a new idea, project or even to conceive a new addition to your family, put images of rabbit(s) on an altar, in your office, or even in your bedroom.
