2014 Chinese New Year - The Year Of The Horse


2014 Chinese New Year - The Year Of The Horse
Dixie Allan

2014 is the Year of the Horse according to Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Horse starts from January 31, 2014 (the Lunar New Year / Spring Festival of China) and lasts to February 18, 2015.

The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people's ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as 'Qianli Ma', a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals 500 meters).

People born in the year of the horse have ingenious communicating techniques and in their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are clever, kind to others and like to join in a venture career. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented, earthy but they tend to be stubborn. They like entertainment and large crowds and are popular among friends, active at work and refuse to be failures. The Horse person is a sociable likeable person most of the time and they can take advantage of this by getting everybody to work together to achieve goals.

The Horse person is patient up to a point, but they can be hot tempered. If you pushed too far, the Horse person can lose their temper. They cannot bear too much constraint. They then lash out, just like a horse, at others which can undo the good relationships they have built up with their good social skills. They can also be stubborn just like a horse. They are wasteful since they are not good with matters of finance due to a lack of budgetary efficiency. The Horse person has many followers but they are not always receptive to other points of view. They tend to interfere in many things and frequently fail to finish projects of their own.
