Energetic, good with money and fond of travel, Horses are the nomads of the Chinese Zodiac, roaming from one place or project to the next. Which is why it is a good thing they know how to budget. All of this searching on the part of the Horse may be to satisfy a deep-rooted desire to be accepted. Even so, these dual-natured souls often find themselves balancing this desire with a yearning for independence and freedom.


Being the independent and confident, the Horse usually have a welcoming smile for both old friends and new acquaintances. They thrive in lively company, and as well as being gregarious companion they are an eloquent and inspiring speaker. They like to be recognized for their skills and are easily flattered, but they also have an honesty and genuine warmth, which attracts many friends. People confide in they because they are interested in their thoughts and feelings, but they are so excited by new discoveries that they find it hard to keep a secret. This is not something that arises out of malice or revenge - sometimes they just cannot help themselves. The same could also happen when they take on new interests or projects: in their eagerness to begin or to organize they may offend others or unknowingly interfere with long-standing plans.

Horses also crave love and intimacy, a double-edged sword since it often leads to them feeling trapped and they really do need their room. That said, love connections come easily to Horses, since they exude the kind of raw sex appeal that is a magnet to the opposite sex. Check out any A-list party, and they're almost certain to find the Horse in attendance. Although they're not very cerebral, Horses more than make up for it with a sharp wit and a scintillating presence. Surprisingly, Horses tend to feel a bit inferior to their peers, a quality that causes them to drift from group to group out of an irrational fear of being exposed as a fraud.

An impatient streak can lead Horses to be less than sensitive to others' needs. These colts would rather take a situation firmly in hand themselves. The lone wolf in them can at times alienate others, but this also makes them stronger and is a key to their success. Horses are self-reliant to the very core and are willing to do the work necessary to get ahead. 


They are inspired by ideas and tend to act on them without delay, carried away by the excitement of the moment, but there is a danger that they are to impulsive and do not give enough thought for the future. When they are disillusioned by the outcome of their efforts, they then turn their attention to a new project and head off once again, brimming with new ideas. The thought of failing and having to pick up the pieces fills they with anxiety, and rather than dealing with this prospect they prefer to change course so that their energies are focused in another direction. Sometimes this drive and excitement serves they well, since it creates many openings and possibilities, but there are times when it leaves plans half-finished. They are always ready to offer good advice and can be very persuasive, but their confident and carefree approach hides inner doubts. Those who know they well recognize this, and offer the support and reassurance they need. 

Although they're not inclined to look at the big picture, Horses have a keen sense of what needs to be done. They are great motivators and get a lot accomplished. Once they find some peace within themselves, they may curb their wandering tendencies and learn to appreciate what's on their own doorstep.

The most compatible match for a Horse is the Dog or Tiger.




Once the Horse have identified a goal, they channel all their energies into achieving it, but do not be over-confident or assume that everyone else agrees with their methods. They are active and alert, and prefer the unusual to the unpredictable. If they decide to choose a new skill to further their career, persevere until they have perfected it and try to resolve any problems rather than simply avoiding them.

They are hard working, cheerful and independent, although they do not mind working as part of a team as long as their efforts are recognized. Many people born in the Year of the Horse have a healthy constitution and are suited to mentally or physically demanding work. They have potential to be an inspiring leader but try to hold back when situations irritate they, since a hasty word could land they in trouble. 



The Horse signs are won over by the thrill of romance and swept along by the exhilaration of a new relationship, sometimes forgetting their responsibilities in the whirlwind of emotion. Horse signs relationships are not likely to be boring - there will be tempestuous moments but there will also be exhilarating and intimate times. It may be hard for they to quiet down and focus on one partner, but once they have overcome their initial hesitancy they are likely to take commitments seriously.

Just as a horse is calmed by soothing words, they are easily charmed by tenderness and affection. The Horse signs need someone who not only takes care of they, reassuring they in moments of doubt, but also gives they the freedom to pursue their adventures. And they need a partner who does not object to they spending time grooming themselves, making sure that their hair and clothes are just right for the occasion. In contrast, they are more chaotic when it comes to domestic affairs, but this can be forgiven because they are a loving and spirited partner.
