2014 Year of the Horse
The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a 12-year cycle and each year in that cycle is related to an animal sign. If you are born in the year of the Horse, Tiger, Sheep or Dog then you can find that 2014 is going to be a great year for adventures, travel, fast victories and surprising romance! Energy is high and production is rewarded. Horse year is time to act fast; buy that home, launch that business, travel the world, make a big purchase, get a promotion at work, have a breakthrough – take a leap and fly! But, you must act fast in your decision making, if not then it might take you in the wrong direction.
If you do not have lucky animal signs in your Four Pillars birth chart, (such as it’s opposite, the Rat) maybe for you, this Horse year it might be better to just follow along with the herd.
BORN IN THE YEAR OF HORSE:
(2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, 1918, 1906)
This kind of person is sometimes referred to a “Qianli Ma” – a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li is equivalent to 500 meters). It is believed those born in the year of the horse have excellent communication skills and enjoy being in the limelight. In general, it is suggested that they are cheerful, fun loving, popular, talented and enjoy entertaining. Horse’s childish innocence, sunny disposition, and natural charm attract many friends.
Horse is a highly intuitive animal, so people born in Horse year follow their hunches. Their keen judgment and natural intuition often help them make the right decisions throughout their life. They are associated with success and cannot stand failure. They don’t need to struggle in order to succeed and obtain the fine things life has to offer.
On a global scale, expect some world economies to become stronger while others experience economic chaos and collapse. Under Horse’s strong influence there is no middle ground. (The time for middle-ground diplomacy and planning was last year in Water Snake 2013.) Anticipate extremes in stock markets, fluctuation of prices, and general chaos in all things financial. There will be wars, battles, and skirmishes all over the world. (Geeeeez!)
