2014 Year of the Horse Horoscopes in Chinese Astrology

chinese-zodiac

On January 31, 2014 we embark on the Year of the Wood Horse in Chinese astrology.  The Chinese new year usually begins on the second new moon after the winter solstice.  2014 brings us to a year of the powerful and masculine Horse.

The Chinese zodiac consists of 12 animal signs beginning with the Rat and ending with the Pig.  Each animal is given a full year and people born during their specific animal’s year will have personality and character traits indicative of that particular sign.

Instead of predicting what will happen to you in 2014, I will give you a recommendation on how to work with the Horse energy.  There is fate and destiny at play in our world but we do have the ability to capitalize on any situation in our lives.  The key is knowing your particular cycle and taking advantage of opportunities and knowing when to be passive or lay low.

2014 Year of Chinese Horse Overview

The Chinese Horse is very masculine and extroverted.  With a bold and magnetic presence, it’s likely that the Horse will be the center-of-attention in many places. The Horse is never one to bite its tongue, he feels like being up front and honest is freeing and good for the soul.

Freedom is very important to our beloved Horse. Many people will feel the strong need to get away in 2014.  Where to go? Anywhere!  There will be a relief with traveling and visiting unfamiliar places. The Horse’s characteristics are similar to the Western astrological sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius deals with long distant travels.

Outspoken, boisterous, adventurous, and social, the Horse year will be filled with much energy to express yourself to the max.  If you are naturally shy, this can create discomfort because the Horse wants you to get out and play.

To find out your Chinese zodiac sign check out Chinese Astrology Animal Characteristics & Chart

Rat – With your natural on-the-edge energy, the year of the Horse will increase this heightened sense of protectiveness.  Use the Horse year to transmit your strong energy into something creative or a new project or hobby.  The Horse is opposite the Rat in the Chinese zodiac so beware of being overly aggressive with people.

Ox – A balanced Ox is a very strong and hard worker.  A Horse is very physical by nature.  On the extreme end you may find yourself pushing yourself to the next level in whatever you take up. Be sure to throttle your engine in the year of the Horse.  Instead, take a mental approach to this energy and look for ways to expand your consciousness and raise your vibration.

Tiger – Whereas most of the time with the Tiger, you find yourself getting tired from going gusto most of the time.  This Horse year offers you extra fuel in your tank.  You will want to complete any unfinished projects or studies this year. With the great compatibility between the Horse and Tiger, you may want to capitalize financially on your hobby and/or ideas.

Rabbit – The Horse year provides extra motivation for the Rabbit this cycle. This energy is conducive for you to socialize more and reconnect with lost loved ones, friends, and associates. You may want to look into various meet-ups and group discussions.  Let your guard down a little this year and show people the true you….it may even spark a new romantic relationship.

Dragon – When the powerful Dragon meets the dominating Horse it can cause war if not approached ideally.  It’s second nature for a Dragon to sporadically move in whichever direction it feels at the moment.  The Horse year will teach you to think before you act.  You know that any obstacle and challenge can be overcame.  Just learn to make your next move your best move.

Snake – The Horse year for the Snake gives an opportunity for deep self-reflection and meditation.  The Snake is not one to put all its chips on the table and show its hand.  The Horse year will challenge this natural trait.  The best way to counter this resistance is to go deeper within self which comes natural for you. Learn a new meditation technique or yoga practice.

Horse – This is your year, Horse!  This is the time to put yourself on the map. Explore every possibility to connect with others and also to connect the dots with anything that you have been working on.  There will be opportunities for you to meet the right people and obtain much needed resources.  The only thing you have to do is move and do something.  You must act to attract!

Sheep – The Horse year will find the Sheep less worried about things that you usually are concerned with.  Feel free to spend a little bit more than usual and buy that thing you’ve been thinking about.  Also, this year will provide perfect energy to meet new people that hold up to your somewhat high standards. Definitely a time for you to shine!

Monkey – It’s natural for the Monkey to make new friends and be the life of the party.  This year will be no different. Let’s try something new in the Horse year. Let’s do something different to expand our horizons and consciousness.  Try listening more when interacting with new people. You are natural at analyzing personalities so try engaging with people on a deeper level.

Rooster – Always one to observe and pay attention to details, the Horse year will provide more stuff to watch and critique for the Rooster.  Take advantage of this strong energy by writing stories, poems, songs, or blogs about what’s going on in the world.  Express from your heart what you feel is most important for the world to hear.  We are waiting and listening for you!

Dog – The Dog in the year of the Horse can expect social, financial, and personal gains.  Be appreciative of the opportunities you will have this year.  Do your best not to worry about things you cannot control because you are always in the driver’s seat.  Be sure to put yourself first sometimes because your abundance this year will have you want to take care of everyone else.

Pig – A time for partying!  You may feel like splurging even more in the year of the Horse. Instead of overspending, exercise some of your innate creativity into a new project or idea.  This is also a good time for starting and harvesting new relationships of any kind.  Actualize your ideas and plans this year and watch the fruits of your labor ripen into a sweet bouquet.

2014 Year of the Wood Horse in Chinese Astrology

chinesehorse

In 2014 we enter the year of the Wood Horse in Chinese Astrology.  The Chinese Zodiac follows the lunar cycle so the new year begins in the new moon on January 30, 2014.

Each year is also associated with an element and 2014 gives us wood along with the horse.  The other elements in Chinese Astrology are fire, water, earth, and metal.

The Wood Horse year of 2014 will not bring us a dull moment.  If anything, you can expect a whole lotta something going on!  You see, the horse likes adventure.  The horse is one of the ultimate animal expressions of the word freedom.

A horse is the type of animal whose respect has to be earned.  It’s fair play on their part because they honor “stand-up” types, but respect and fairness are two different things.  This year is not about talking a good game as much as showing and proving.

Horse type personalities are very frank and direct in speech.  There is no time to beat around the bush with this energy type.  Flowery soliloquies do not impress the horse.  With the straight-forward and intelligent mentality of the horse, they like to get to the point!

Blessed with the rare combination of general common sense and heightened intuition the horse is not a fool by any means.  Though they have the tendency to fly off the handle or act impulsively, with their natural knack of just “getting it” they are able to learn from their mistakes.

One thing that cannot be mistaken is the sheer strength and vitality the horse possesses.  Though not as physically strong as the Ox, the horse is no slouch when it comes to labor and physical activities.  This will translate into people feeling the energy to put their hands in the dirt from farming to building structures.

Do not be surprised to see many vocal demonstrations in the Horse Year.  This can be verbal cries about government wrongdoings to an extreme outspoken approach about any subject.  Combine passion and a need to be center-of-attention, the hose is not afraid to let you know exactly what’s on its mind.

The Year of the Horse will be filled with gossip, idle conversation, spiritual debates, mastermind think tanks, group meetings, and anything else that involves speaking and people.  The horse is naturally sociable and this leads to a natural networking skill.

You may find many celebrities in the news for something they have said.  This Year of the Horse energy can also make so-called stars speak up about things they normally would not say in public.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the humble humanitarianism of the horse.  Some people give and help to fulfill their personal ego but, the horse feels like being of service and giving is the right thing to do.

Expect to see huge demonstrations of charity from celebrities and government to religious institutions and common folk.

In conclusion, the 2014 Year of the Horse will not be humdrum.  The energy will be ideal for allowing yourself to be free physically and spiritually.  The horse teaches us to trust our instincts and intuition.

The horse is about action and not over thinking and procrastinating.  It sees a goal or objective and attacks it until completion.  The Year of the Horse will be fast and steady and will not wait on you to over analyze.

Chinese Zodiac Signs Correspondence in Western Astrology

chinese-zodiac

Chinese Astrology was my first love in the cosmological sciences.  Later on I discovered Western Astrology and Jyotish.  As a student of all astrology systems I have linked the signs between the two major systems and provide this article as a quick reference guide for anyone to use.

There are similarities between the animal signs in Chinese Astrology and Western or Jyotish (Vedic/Hindu Astrology) zodiac signs.  This correspondence is not clear-cut but one can definitely ascertain the equivalent counterparts.

The following list of Chinese Zodiac signs and their western counterparts are my interpretations based on years of astrological research and practices.

See Chinese Astrology Animal Characteristics & Chart to find out what your Chinese Zodiac sign is.

1. Rat — Aries

Both are leaders and very head strong.  Both are yang/masculine.

2. Ox — Taurus

Both seek security and have a green thumb.  Both are yin/feminine.

3. Tiger — Aquarius

Both are versatile and can not be pinned down or labelled.  Both are yang/masculine.

4. Rabbit — Virgo

Both are very neat in appearance and health-conscious.  Both are yin/feminine.

5. Dragon — Leo

Both have over-the-top personalities and are born leaders.  Both are yang/masculine.

6. Snake — Pisces

Both are psychic sensitive and sensual.  Both are yin/feminine.

7. Horse — Sagittarius

Both are outspoken and multi-talented.  Both are yang/masculine.

8. Sheep — Cancer

Both are nurturing and home/family oriented.  Both are yin/feminine.

9. Monkey — Gemini

Both are very expressive, creative, and vocal.  Both are yang/masculine.

10. Rooster — Capricorn

Both are business and career oriented and good with finances.  Both are yin/feminine.

11. Dog — Libra

Both are all about fairness and balancing wrongdoings.  Both are yang/masculine.

Year 2014: Predictions Using Metaphysics

2014predictions

The objective of this article is to breakdown the energy of the year 2014 using metaphysics including numerology, Chinese astrology, Tarot and occult overstanding in an effort to predict events of the new year.  According to Master Spiritual Teacher Dr. Mitchell Gibson (tybro.com), numbers are one of the forces that control and manipulate this reality.  We will focus on the year 2014, its numerology and metaphysical properties, by reducing it down to a one digit number so we can see its energetic vibration.

Numerology

2014 in numerology is a 7 year (2+0+1+4).  Seven is a very psychic number.  It is not uncommon for many psychics, intuitive readers, mediums and the sort to have a 7 life path or be born on a 7 day (7,16, or 25).  Seven can be somewhat a loner or hermit-like energy that seeks to find deeper meanings in life.

Seven is one of the most spiritual numbers.  In the Bible’s Book of Revelation, 7 is mentioned many times (7 churches, horns, seals, angels etc.).  A connection to the Divine or some spiritual outlet is important for 7.  An imbalanced 7 is usually far away from any source of spirituality and therefore has no connection to something greater than humanity.

On the downside, 7 can be too caught up in the head without any action behind their otherworldly thoughts.  In the Law of Attraction the last part is action!  One must act on ideas in order to create.

Chinese Astrology

In Chinese Astrology 2014 marks the year of the Horse.  The Chinese Horse is a very versatile sign.  Whatever direction the horse goes in you can bet that it’s done with assertiveness and a gentle aggression.  The horse in Chinese Astrology is one of the most masculine animals and the year of the Horse will not be a passive, gentle, or slow year.

Horses are known for their quick wittiness and verbal outbursts.  With a natural knack for stealing the spotlight, horses love to be the center-of-attention.  With charm and direct speech, many people have no choice but to listen and take in whatever philosophical or mundane knowledge that the horse is speaking.

An imbalanced horse can come off like a whiny child or somewhat immature.  Also, it’s not uncommon for a horse to be quite bossy and order-barking.

Tarot

The number 7 Major Arcana card in Tarot is “The Chariot”.  The Chariot represents taking control of your life or situation.  It is very goal-oriented. The Chariot reminds us not to get off course and to stay steady for the long haul.

The Chariot also represents travel and transportation.  This means that the conquest nature of the card can be physical, spiritual or mental.  On a darker side, this conquest can include war and violence.

Some keywords associated with the Chariot are: honor, success, assertion, willpower, bravery, command, warrior, straightforwardness, impulsiveness, pride, and conviction.

Chakra

In the Hindu chakra system, the 7th main energy center is the crown chakra (Sahasrara).  The crown chakra is the highest chakra in the human body and actually sits above the head.  Tied with higher consciousness and spiritual awareness, the crown is concerned with connecting to and with ALL there is.

We are all connected by the energy of the crown chakra.  Our energies are connected with each other, nature, and the Source of All.

Your greatest psychic awareness lies in the crown chakra.  Psychic abilities are not physical so it is of spiritual nature.  Psychic includes “seeing into the future” and predicting events in such but, psychic awareness means just knowing something that is beyond your five senses.

Conclusion

To sum up 2014, in my opinion, the new year will be an explosive transition from 2013.  The end of 2013 presented peculiar weather, celebrity outbursts, increasing witnesses of UFOs, more talk about paranormal and spiritual subjects and many other unexplained events.  2014 will have all this and more!

In the new year, we will experience events on a personal and collective level that will challenge our modern paradigm.  All that we thought we knew will be confronted with obvious, tangible evidence of something new.  What is this newness?  Let’s put it like this!  What we will see in 2014 has not been taught in traditional schools and churches and is not covered by mainstream media.

There will be a feeling of “in your face” information when it comes to spiritual occurrences and mystical phenomena.  Those who were quiet before will find extra energy and incentive to share freely.  Simply put, you will hear more about the supposed unknown from science, media, governments, military and the such, more so than we have in many years.

Natural phenomena in the heavens affecting the weather and our sky will continue to occur in 2014.  My best advice for circumventing any calamities is to increase your intuition so you will be in tune with Mother Nature.  This way you will know where to go and when to go if you need to go somewhere in case of an emergency.

All in all, it is my hope that everyone will take this and every opportunity to grow spiritually.  2014, without question, will provide enough electromagnetic energy for one to raise their personal vibration.  The higher vibrating and enlightened you are the better our world will be.

Year 2013: A Metaphysical Breakdown

2013

The objective of this article is to breakdown the energy of the year 2013 using metaphysics including numerology, gematria, Chinese astrology, Tarot and occult wisdom.  According to Master Teacher Dr. Mitchell Gibson (tybro.com), numbers are one of the forces that control and manipulate this reality.  We will focus on the year 2013, its numerology and metaphysical properties, by reducing it down to a one digit number so we can see the energy that this year will produce.

When we look at the year 2013, the first thing that sticks out is the sequential numbers 1, 2, and 3.  2013 contains the first three numbers of our counting system.  One (1) denotes beginnings, two (2) involves partnerships, and three (3) is the first number of completion according to numerology.  So, 2013 all together brings a sense of beginnings, partnering, and bringing  all together into one.  In standard pythagorean numerology, 2013 reduces to the single digit 6 (2+0+1+3).

In Chinese astrology, 2013 is the year of the Water Snake.  The snake is symbolic of femininity, wisdom, spirituality, sensuality, patience, and the arts.  Combined with the element of water, this gives the energy an extra punch of heightened intuition and uncontrollable emotions, as water is known as the universal conduit of energy.  In contrast, the snake symbol can be very deceptive and secretive.  The snake will also target its prey with methodical attacks.  This means your prey (goals, objectives, wants, desires) may not come immediately but, with a solid plan you will reach your desired end result.  One thing to remember about the snake is when it is close to its prey (your goal in sight) it strikes without hesitation!

We know a snake coils up and this is the symbolic spiral shape.  This represents the understanding that everything spirals into existence.  This shows the connection from the spiritual and unseen realm into physical manifestation.  It represents raw creation and the snake adds a level of elegance and individual creativity to this equation.

Lets get back to the numbers!  Six (6) is considered a yin or feminine number.  Six is probably the most service-oriented energy of numerology.  With 6 also being one of the creative numbers, it likes to use its subtle energy to make things appealing to the eye and spirit.  It is the proverbial mothering energy and can be overbearing at times.  Remember when your mom stayed on your behind about cleaning your room or eating your veggies?  The number 6, in a passive-aggressive manner, is all about getting things done but on its own terms!

In Gematria (Kabbalistic numerology) the number 6 is considered the first perfect number and symbolizes universal forces like light, heat, and electromagnetism.  Tiferet is the sixth sefira in the Kabbalistic tree of life and it represents beauty, balance, miracles, and spirituality.  It symbolizes the union of two worlds coming together like two interlocking pyramids or, as in the saying, “as above so below”.

When we look at the number six card in the Tarot, which is the Lovers, we see a union between man and woman.  This also denotes harmony after free will of choice.  We are free to choose our partner(s) which inevitably results in a union or a coming together of sorts.  To perpetuate this union we must compromise, communicate, and fulfill each others needs.  Power of choice is critical for two sides, that are seemingly opposite, to come together in a harmonious manner.  There is also an angel in between the Lovers on the Tarot card which represents a divinely blessed union.

The number 6 corresponds with the 6th chakra which is the ajna or third eye spiritual center.  The energy of the third eye is all about spiritual perception, mysticism, psychic abilities, and higher functions of the mind.  The third eye is part of your higher self while contained in the body along with the throat and crown chakras.  These energies are devoid of an ego-centered mindset.  We begin to see our connection to the Source and all of her/his creations when we are in the energy of the higher self.

In review, the year 2013 will be an extremely spiritual one.  We will witness people gravitating towards spiritual and metaphysical practices such as meditation, healing arts, psychic readings, tantra, and yoga just to name a few.  There will also be a strong sense of service to humanity which will bring about new teachers and examples of how to live on a more elevated and spiritually grounded basis.  We will have the opportunity to see our music, film, television, and media project material that is heavily rooted in wisdom and spiritual and occult information.  This means more media dealing with topics like: spirituality, aliens/ETs, magick, psychic phenomena, the paranormal (ghosts, spirits, faeries, elementals, etc.).  Many hidden or occult dealings will come to light in 2013!

Chinese Astrology Animal Characteristics & Chart

Chinese Astrology Zodiac Animals

Chinese Astrology has been around for thousands of years.  It was based off of astronomy (the study of matter in outer space).  Chinese Astrology, depending on birth year, gives a person insight on their innate abilities, characteristics, likes & dislikes.  Maybe this is why you seem to have a lot in common with your graduation class.

The information based on your birth date is not the end all be all.  Factors like how you were raised, physical/mental ailments, environment, life circumstances and many others have significant involvement into your whole make-up.  Chinese Astrology is somewhat general, but from my research & applied practices, it is on target the majority of time.

Know thyself. This information is important because if you do not know who & what you are, you are destined to make the journey to your destiny difficult.  We all know someone who has a VERY negative quality about them but they swear up and down that it’s not so.  I feel that most people have an easier time analyzing and breaking down someone else but the person in the mirror gets all benefits of the doubt.  To know yourself inside & out and up & down forces you to confront your shortcomings and/or unproductive character traits.

Chinese Astrology, or any predictive science, can help you begin or continue on your path.  The information can help you with your life purpose, occupational outlook, social events & gatherings, parenting, business management and any other situation that you deem fit.

Using Chinese Astrology to Help Determine Your Life Purpose

To determine your life purpose, take the gifts under your specific animal and write the ones that “fit” you down on paper.  Leave out what you feel doesn’t apply to you and add some of your own.  I say add some of your own because you know yourself best.

The key is to find an occupation or purpose that allows you to utilize your gifts.  This is how you satisfy your soul and fulfill part of your purpose for incarnating.

Your life purpose is determined by what gifts you incarnated with.  Your life lessons are those things that try to get in the way.

Sometimes we accept our “positive” gifts while overlooking our “challenges”.  You’ve heard the expression “take the good with the bad”?  This applies to us.  We are a combination of positive and negative energies & good and bad traits.

It is my intention that you discover something else about yourself from this article.  Remember: a wise person works on his/her weaknesses to become a more well-rounded soul.  Happy travels!

Chinese Astrology Animal Characteristics & Traits

Rat

The Rat of the Chinese Zodiac is a doer. Not just a doer but one that can get more accomplished in less time than the average person.

Smarts. The Chinese Rat is usually not short in the common sense & knowledge departments.

Good advice giver. But beware, they do not like to receive advice. In fact, they usually won’t ask for your opinion.

A lover of fine cuisine. But don’t expect them to cook it!

It is a common trait that most Rat year born persons rather get paid off their intelligence over actual labor.

Argumentative. The Rat is endowed with plenty wit and enjoys verbal jousting.

Penny-pinchers to the max. The Rat year born soul just worries about his/her finances and thriftiness is just part of their make-up.

It is generally believed that Rats birthed in the winter season will worry about not having food for the majority of their life.

All in all, Rat year born folks are good people. It’s hard for them to open up all the way. They are quite talkative in comfortable surroundings but their shrewd demeanor at times, causes them not to keep a lot of friends. In fact, the Rat is quite content with curling up solo and feeding their brain with a good book or an informative documentary.

When it comes to matters of the opposite sex, the Rat has no problem attracting attention because of its natural charismatic personality. In fact, the Rat can be quite charming. The ladies of this sign do have the tendency to live through their significant other as opposed to complimenting them.

Rats on a lower plane of thinking, feel a sense of entitlement. Living off someone freely, borrowing and not paying back, overly asking for favors is done without a blink of an eye. This is a Rat that has not faced their challenges head on and has suppressed all their negative energy.

Ox

The Ox Stubborn.  Stubborn.  And stubborn.  The Ox takes the cake in this category.

Family and friends are 1, 2 & 3.  Oxen are not too accepting of those outside of their circle.

Most Oxen enjoy gardening and outdoor yard work.  They really do have a green thumb.

Oxen are usually the last ones to demand center of attention at a party or get-together.

Security first.  Specifically, financial security is one of their main priorities.

No risk taker here.  Oxen have the tendency to stick with what is proven.

Stern parent and disciplinarian.  They expect their kids to behave and be well-mannered.

The Ox could very well be the hardest working sign of the Zodiac.  Slow, gradual progress is all they expect.  And they are willing to labor endlessly as long as they see light at the end of the tunnel.  Their patience is a extremely valuable trait.  When most would give up and quit, the Ox keeps pushing on.

Along with their tremendous work ethic comes a huge dose of stubbornness.  This is not always a bad thing.  There are an overwhelming amount of celebrity Oxen.  They just don’t get discouraged hearing the words “can’t” & “no”.  These are traits, if used properly, that give natives of this sign very high will power.

The rage of this sign is no flowery subject.  Oxen are notorious for charging ahead with dangerous intentions.  It’s best to let them calm down before someone gets seriously injured!

Tiger

Tigers are fierce leaders so following others is not their strong point.

Up for a challenge?  The Tiger never backs down from competition.

Loyalty towards their family and close friends is second nature to the Tiger.

Tigers are pouncers, so they usually jump on things quickly and rush through it.

Injustices are not tolerated by these cats.  They will fight for the cause of the mistreated.

Natives of this sign are usually NOT motivated by just money.

The Tiger is a restless soul.  Always seeking out adventure or something out of the ordinary.  They are far from timid or afraid of the unknown.  In fact, normality is a little dull to them.

They really do attack what they go after.  Even with partners, this “breed” can end a relationship and go into another one with much gusto.  And with their natural courage and likable personality, finding takers is no problem.  Switching jobs and career paths are also likely with the Tiger.

Independent to the core.  It is rare to find a Tiger in a dependent situation.  If they are, you likely will discover an unhappy soul.  They love and need their roaming room.

Rabbit

The Rabbit. Conservative yet fashionably attractive.  Not too flashy but they are usually neatly dressed.

Can be talkative sometime but they usually are more aloof.

Private, quiet worrier.  Do not expect them to just pour their heart out to you.

Quietly stubborn.  Luckily not as raging as the Ox.

The Rabbit is quite an intuitive creature.  So it’s not surprising that they “sense” a lot of things.

Very passive.  They just don’t want to stir up trouble.

High morals and impeccable manners, the Chinese Rabbit truly is graceful.  Rarely do they say the wrong thing.  They much rather keep it to themselves.  As poker faced as they are, you wouldn’t be able to tell if anything was wrong anyway.

Excellent with finances.  The natives of this Zodiac sign can control their splurging more than most.  It is a high priority for their life to be financially stress free.  As a matter of fact, they try to ensure that every aspect of their life is peaceful.  Extremely docile sign.

Rabbits do claim to be “under the weather” more than other signs.  Their health is something they constantly think about.  Even the ones in great shape consciously are fidgety when it comes to their health.

The biggest worrisome characteristic of the Rabbit, is their total private, secretive and sometimes secluded life.  They just are detached, for the most part.  It would serve them well to open up a little more and show some vulnerability.

Dragon

The Dragon. Insert foot in mouth.  The Dragon is notorious for blurting out the first thing that comes to their mind.

Quick temper.  This short-tempered fire breather can flare up in a ball of rage at the drop of a hat.

Natural born leader.  Those that follow this breed do so willingly.

Sense of self-entitlement.  Nothing is off limits, in their eyes.

Dragons usually make a lasting impression, rather by choice or chance.

Gifted with intelligence and intuition, Dragons are decisive and are usually right more than wrong.

Competitive spirit.  The Dragon does not like being second to anyone.

Being the only mythological creature, in the Chinese Zodiac, there is certainly an air of mystery with this sign.  They are not the type to express their inner most feelings.  To know a Dragon, is to know what they allow you to know.

Born with boundless earthly knowledge, the Dragon sometimes offers unwanted advice.  They truly can plan someone’s life but their tact can be harsh and straightforward.  Honesty is their policy.

Revolutionary crusaders.  The Dragon has a sense of duty when it comes to the inhumanities of society.  It is not rare to find Dragons on the front lines of any protest or revolt.

Compassionate and full gusto.  Dragons are full of energy and pour their all into whatever they take up.  They lead by example and are sensitive to those that follow them.

Very loyal to their family and friends.  This sign is a natural protector of their loved ones.  Even with their selfish tendencies, there is absolutely nothing they won’t do for those that are close to them.

A Dragon on a lower plane of thought can be quite secretive and very unfaithful.  Since to them nothing is off limits, extramarital affairs can occur.  A dragon can live a double life without sparking any suspicions.

Snake

The Snake. Attractive and charming.  The Snake epitomizes the art of seduction.

Pre-wired with wisdom galore.  The Snake always relies on its natural intuition.

Philosophical mind.  These deep thinkers have a way of just knowing.

Very intelligent and well-spoken.  Snakes can talk you in or out of almost anything.

In relationships, the Snake can sometimes become very jealous and possessive.

This sign detests being the butt end of jokes.  This could be because of their insecurity at times.

The wisdom of the Snake is what separates this sign from its brothers and sisters in the Chinese Zodiac.  They “feel” their way through life carefully avoiding dangerous situations.  Conflict is the last thing on their minds.  They would rather much bask within their minds or feed themselves with food for thought.

Snakes are as calm as they come.  They rarely find reasoning to let their emotions get the best of them.  Retreating and devising a scheme or plan suits this sign the best.  The Snake is the master of plotting.

This sign is very private and secretive.  They just do not like letting others know too much.  They will throw you off if you suspect anything that they do not want you to know.  Diversion is their language.

Quietly unassuming allows the Snake to be extremely manipulative.  This breed, in a lower thought plane, can cause chaos in any situation.  Armed with their patience, they can carry out a scheme for a long time.

Snakes make good friends to the ones they truly adore.  Giving their time comes easier than lending money though.  They can be a little stingy.  But they will work side by side with their loved ones that need help.

Horse

The Horse. Considered one of the most “masculine” of the Chinese Zodiac, the Horse is usually dominant in a lot of areas.

Extremely independent.  Most natives of this Zodiac sign leave home earlier than most.

Very talkative and friendly.  They attract numerous friends because of their magnetic persona.

The Horse demands center of attention…..all the time.

Quick witted and clever, they usually are never lost for words.

Lover of kids.  They love life and children are life’s pride and joy.

Very hard worker.

The Horse is a high energy, spirited soul.  Their zest for life is contagious.  They give their all into whatever they take up.  Luckily, this sign is very versatile so they grasp onto things quickly.

The Horse is usually going 100 miles per hour at all times, so it’s not surprising that they fall in love quick and hard.  They are usually good providers to their families as long as their partner allows them their much needed independence.  It’s their natural tendency to roam.  They just don’t like being idle.

A control freak and an order barker.  Horse year born people just feel a need to have their fingerprint on everything.  Their way or the highway.

A Horse in the wrong frame of mind can be very childish and contradictive.  A grown person throwing a temper tantrum can seem extreme but this sign can really do it.  And to say one thing and do the opposite, well let’s just say that the Horse does this with ease.

Sheep

The Sheep and all its elegance is considered the most feminine of the Chinese Zodiac.

Very intuitive.  The Sheep is wired with psychic abilities.

No need to worry about this sign causing violent chaos.  They avoid conflict at all cost.

Day dreamer.  The Sheep is often somewhere deep in thought.

Naturally “motherly” and nurturing.  This sign is excellent with kids.

Sticks with what is traditional.  Rarely will you find the Sheep drifting into the unknown.

Money spender.  Why save when you can just buy?

Indecisive.  They really do have a hard time making up their minds.

Quite the worrier.  They just can’t keep them negative thoughts out of their heads.

The Chinese Sheep is one of the most artistic signs of the Zodiac.  Music, fashion, art, cooking and the such, appeal to Sheep like breath to life.  And they are excellent in whatever art they pursue.

Being somewhat suspect in new surroundings, Sheep need the security of familiar environments.  Give them comfortable space and interesting people, you will find a happy go lucky soul.  Even though they require thinking time alone, they really enjoy socializing with prominent, relevant people.

The Sheep is very fashion forward.  To find a Sheep dressed in anything less than stylish garb, is like finding a fish out of water.  Sheep have been known to check the mirror more than a few times to go just about anywhere!

True nature of the Sheep can be quite challenging.  Since a sheep is covered with wool, sometimes it’s hard to discover their real self.  Armed with this natural defense, the Sheep can keep their identity concealed for as long as they want.

Sheep on a lower thought plane, can be extremely dependent.  A rich sugar daddy or mama appeal to these souls.  Why get their own when someone will provide it to them.  And with their desirable traits, the sign usually gets what it wants.
