Of all 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac, Horse is the one that most closely resembles the characteristic of the animal. To better understand the horse, let's focus on three places where you can find these lovely creatures: cowboy movies, racetracks and performance arenas.
We learn a lot about horses in those old westerns. For example, the first thing a cowboy does when he arrives in town at the beginning of the show is tie up his horse. They’re independent critters. So individual effort is favored this year. And in relationships -- don’t be surprised if that special someone doesn’t want to be tied down. It’s also not unusual for a partner to wander off, just like the horse that isn’t tied up properly.
And how about those movie scenes where a herd of wild horses is majestically moving across the open range! Freedom. The open spaces. Adventure. Power. Yes, outdoors and the environment are big this year. Get as much of the outdoors as you can into your vacations -- be fit so you can run with the horses!
Speaking of running. How about the racetrack? Speed, getting a quick jump on the action, madly rushing to the finish line. Things’ll happen quickly. The pace fast. High drama. Passion. Quick thinking wins the day. You snooze, you lose. Get the picture? The race for glory. And there’ll be plenty of it.
It’s a time to get in the game, to make your maximum effort. To run hard. But remember this: you have your limits. Everyone does. So make sure you get enough down time. Another caution: Opportunities could come fast and furious. Make your plans now. There’s always a risk with hasty decisions. But you can reduce it by thinking about what you want before you jump into the fire.
And passion? Love and sex come alive with the Horse in charge. Think about the track. Drama leading up to the race. The gun goes off. Frantic action, and then it’s over! You get the point. You might get lucky, but for the most part, forget about creating a lasting relationship or finding your soul mate (unless you're a Sheep). On the other hand … Fleeting romances this year could be some of the best times of your life. So enjoy them.
Last but not least: The horse is a graceful animal. Think about the equestrian events at the Olympics or a performance of the Lipizzaner Stallions. You can expect to see great performances at the movies, theater and concerts. If you’re an entertainer, this is the year you’ve been waiting for! Flair. Style that flaunts itself. Might be time to kick your wardrobe up a notch to make sure you’re noticed.
Put these scenarios together and what do you get? Adventure. Fun. Action. Flamboyance. Achievement. A good time will be had if you keep a hold on common sense and take breaks when you need them. Horses, to the starting line!
