It’s officially The Year of the Horse. And I, for one, am glad that The Year of the Snake is over! 2013 was a difficult year for me in many ways. According to Chinese astrology, if your animal sign is represented in the current calendar year, things will most likely NOT be going your way. Therefore, you must take precautionary measures because forces will be conspiring against you.
The horse spirit represents the ethos of the Chinese people – energetic, confident, bright and eloquent. Horse people are independent, sociable and impulsive. If you were born in a year represented by the horse, (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014), this could be a wild ride for you.
In general, The Year of the Horse represents good fortune, speedy victories, unexpected adventure and romance. But it also portends conflict. It could be a year of battles. What’s worse, people will be more stubborn in sticking up for what they believe to be right, so resolutions or business negotiations could be hard to accomplish. And beware: the financial outlook appears to be unstable. The wooden horse represents fire energy, so it could be a hazardous year all around.
So what’s a horse person to do? Wear red? With wooden beads? Sure! But you’d be best advised to lie low and try not to make any big changes (or investments) this year, unless you’re absolutely sure about them. If you are, then go for it! Fortunes will be made – and lost – this year. Follow your intuition, because your keen insight will help you make the right decisions.
Happy New Year everyone!
