The Year of the Horse

Year of the Horse's Chinese horoscope and meaning: exact birth dates and elements, characteristics and personality traits, love compatibility and zodiac lucky stones

In brief: The native of the Year of the Horse has an excellent sense of humor and a rare talent for self-mockery, which he tends to lose with age. 

The Horse's ability to make fun of himself turns him into an ideal friend to spend quality time with, despite a slight tendency to selfishness in the way he tends to lead his life.

Year of the Horse: Personality horoscope

Even though the Chinese zodiac sign of the Horse is very loyal in friendship, his constant need to live new experiences and adventures in unexplored lands is a source of discomfort for his more sedentary companions. He is in general an accomplished sportsman and an amateur of open air sports practices.

Always passionate and surprising in love, the Horse finds nothing more attractive than a journey to the unknown. If you try to restrain a Horse by depriving him of his freedom, he can become intolerant and aggressive, constantly ruminating his dissatisfaction, like a little daily story which you will have to undergo the inconveniences.

The Horse is very fast and efficient in his work. However, the quality of his production can sometimes suffer from a lack of preparation and research upstream, especially since he doesn't necessarily like to ask for advice, as he thinks he is fully self-sufficient. In spite of the sometimes perfectible quality of his achievements, the Horse always finds an audience to applaud him warmly and to congratulate him with devotion, as his persuasiveness can be very effective.

In love, the Horse's concern for independence, demonstrated by his ability to pack his bags overnight, doesn't mean that he appreciates loneliness. He would prefer to be at the origin of a possible separation rather than being abandoned against his will. A good lover, always sensual and charming, the Horse must however learn moderation and patience if he wishes to preserve peace and serenity within his home.

More than money, it is strong emotions that the Horse seeks to live in priority, in order to feel fulfilled in his life. Despite his self-sufficiency and latent selfishness, the Horse can be surprisingly generous to weaker than him. Indeed, his noble nature and his thirst for exceeding his limits prevent him from falling into the mean and jealous comparison of his neighbor. On the contrary, he must rather guard himself from the temptation to withdraw from the world for having contemplated it for too long from the top of his rare snow-capped peaks still untouched by human pollution.
