If you were born between the Start and Finish dates listed below, you are a Horse person. The spirit of the Horse lives in your heart. Depending on your year of birth, you will also have one of the five elements associated with your animal sign. Elements occur for two lunar years. The first year is Yang (+), the second is Yin (-).
There are many differences between the different element types of Horse.
Below is a broad description of the Horse personality.
The Horse is the seventh sign of the Chinese horoscope. The Horse is Yang and is fixed to the Fire element. The sign is similar to the occidental sign of Gemini. Yang is positive, masculine, and associated with the Day. Objective Yang signs depend more on others than themselves. You tend to be outgoing and more physical than spiritual. As all opposites attract in nature, Yang attracts Yin. The Fire element association bestows a love of adventure and a desire for change, aggression and the domination of others. Fire people talk more than they listen.
Those born in the year of the Horse are associated with the most self-reliant and independent of people. Many famous rebels are Horses. In most cases, you will put your interests before those of others. Unable to tolerate constraint of almost any kind, Horses are renowned for being difficult children, especially in the adolescent period. The parents of a Horse child can expect them to leave home almost as soon as they are able.
Horse people have lively minds and much imagination. Easily bored, you require being busy and stimulated most of the time. Many Horses suffer from nervous exhaustion during their lives. Learning to relax and increasing your attention-span are goals that you should work towards.
Horses may have many jobs during their working lives. You often have difficulty in maintaining long term objectives and may tend to take more risks than others. Strong business partners are needed. In the right situation, a Horse is a difficult person to beat. Most Horses will acquire wealth, but not a lot of security.
The desire for almost unlimited personal freedom makes a Horse person an entertaining friend but a difficult marriage partner. Finding it easy to fall in and out love, you can expect to have many romances. Flirtatious and fickle are words that can figure strongly in the description of a Horse. Nonetheless, you are capable of lifelong relationships with suitable partners.
The downfall of many Horses is giving in to impulsiveness and being unable to control an explosive temper.
You can have great friendships with Tigers, Dogs and Dragons. Snakes and Monkeys will provide intellectual stimulation. Relationships with the Rat and the Ox can be difficult.
