Hi! Seventh Chinese Zodiac sign free-spirited handsome Horse! Will you be 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 (and so-on in 12-year increments) between 24th January 2014 and 18th February 2015 (Horse Year's end)? Do partners, friends, relatives, colleagues, parents or children fall into this category? Answer 'Yes' and this article is for you!
Years of the HORSE:
1906 Fire; 1918 Earth; 1930 Metal; 1942 Water; 1954 Wood; 1966 Fire; 1978 Earth; 1980 Metal; 2002 Water; 2014 Wood.
Famous Horses Include:
Barbra Streisand, John Travolta, Michael York, Ella Fitzgerald, Gene Hackman, Jimi Hendrix, Isaac Newton, Harrison Ford, Bob Geldof, Linda Evans, Janet Jackson, Paul McCartney, Raquel Welch, Rembrandt and Sean Connery.
Attractive to the opposite sex, Horse people are active, hard-working, energetic and gregarious with limitless energy and ambition. Quick-witted and perceptive, they often seem able to guess what's on your mind and are honest and friendly.
Horses need to control their impatience and wanderlust and learn to appreciate what is in front of them. Although open-minded, Horses can lack self-confidence, appearing rather self-centered at times.
Ideal Horse Careers and Occupations Include:
Sports, Technology, Administration, Hairdressing, Hospitality, Travel and Tourism, Sales, Driving Jobs, Education, Journalism, Advertising, Art, Literature.
In relationship terms, Horses are most compatible with those born under the Signs of the Tiger or Dog and least compatible with those born under the Signs of the Rat and Monkey.
Fortunes of the Horse in Snake Year (2013-14)
This is a time of mixed fortunes for the Horse with the earlier part of the Year much more favorable, especially for career purposes. From around June onwards, Horse fortunes deteriorate progressively and there may be arguments with friends.
Being watchful and on your guard for mishaps is one way to avoid problems during this period. Control your headstrong tendencies, practise tolerance towards others and be prepared for surprises.
Horse and Snake are Interlinked Signs
The classic folk-tale of the 'animal olympics' makes their inter-linkage clear. In this, Horse pounds powerfully towards 6th place without noticing Snake wrapped around a foreleg.
Near the finish line, Snake jumps off and surprised Horse rears up and leaps backwards. Seizing this advantage, Snake crosses the finish-line before Horse and the two are awarded 6th and 7th place in the Chinese Zodiac, respectively. Another article by the same author tells the full tale of how, to whom and why all 12 places were awarded.
