Rabbit Symbolism: Rabbits are highly attuned to the Earth. They take their time getting to know their environment and they especially like to feel safe in their surroundings. Rabbits have a strong inner voice that helps to protect them. Their strength lies in their ability to quietly assess their situation before acting. By becoming quiet, their confident inner voice can help to guide them to where they need to be. Rabbits are known for their fertility and are associated with the Celtic Goddess of Spring, Eostra and with Ostara (Easter). Many cultures associate them with the moon, including Native American, Hindu and Chinese. Rabbits have long been a symbol of rebirth and springtime.
