According to Chinese zodiac*, 2014 is the Year of Horse. First, may the coming of the New Year bring you joy, love and peace.
People who are born in the year of horse are often willing to give as well as expect a lot of liberty. These people are extremely independent and confident. The horse person is very quick-witted, inquisitive and determined. They are very good at recognizing patterns: she or he is on to the thought in your mind even before you’ve expressed it.
In general, these people are gifted.They adore being the center of everyone’s attention, but they prefer to be recognized for their skills and are easily flattered. On the other hand these people have an honesty and genuine warmth which attracts lots of people and helps them make new friends.
People as a rule confide in a horse person because he/she is sincerely interested in their thoughts and feelings and is able to help with both wise words and an action, but there is a small problem about it – the horse person is so excited by new discoveries that it is difficult for them to keep a secret. This is not something that arises out of malice or revenge – sometimes they just cannot help themselves.

It is easy to inspire such a person by new ideas and he/she tends to act on them without delay, carried away by the excitement of the moment. But it is also important to remember that there is a danger for a horse person to be too impulsive and it may cause some problems in the future. And if they do not see the result of their efforts, it is rather natural for them to turn their attention to a new project and head off once again, brimming with new ideas.
The horse person is always ready to offer good advice and can be very persuasive, but his/her confident and carefree approach hides inner doubts. Those who know such a person will recognize this, and offer the support and reassurance he/she needs. Males born under the year of the Horse are considered charming and attractive to members of the opposite sex. Horses should beware of the Rat, as any relationship with this sign is said to be extremely trying for the horse.
Of all relationships between Chinese zodiac signs, a relationship between a rat and a horse is said to be the worst. The rat may just be too calculating, dictatorial and possessive for the free-spirited and independent horse. A relationship with a rat can potentially break down the horse’s free-spirit and cause rage in the rat – as neither will be willing to yield to the other. Rats and Horses will attract each other like no other. Male Horses, especially, will find the female Rat irresistible, though they always bring out the worst in each other. Horses do get along great with Tigers, Sheep and Dogs.
Possible professions for people who are born on the year of the horse are that of a journalist, engineer, architect, a writer or novelist, an actor or a model.

Although it is difficult for such people to take advice, they are patient and compassionate with others when it comes to giving a helping hand, and their ability to look at a problem from a variety of angles is extremely useful. When faced with a dilemma, Snake people, as a rule, act with speed and conviction, since they believe intensely in what they are doing and rarely waste time or energy on projects lacking in good potential.
The best partners for the Snake will be the dependable Ox, the dauntless Rooster or the illustrious Dragon. Snakes can also do well with the tenacious Rat. Though the Pig, Horse and the Tiger may not be able to work.
In life, they know precisely how to use people and situations to their best advantage. There will be no holding them back as Snakes are destined for fame and fortune.
In times of confusion and trouble, the Snake person is a pillar of strength because he maintains a presence of mind. The Snake can deal with bad news and misfortune with great aplomb. They have a profound sense of responsibility and an unsinkable constancy of purpose. It will be this constancy of purpose coupled with a natural hypnotic charisma that could carry a Snake to the highest realms of power.
* Chinese Zodiac is based on cyclic concept of time: a cycle of 12 years, repeated again and again.
The 12 Years are associated with 12 Celestial Animals: Rat (or Mouse on Mongoose), Ox (or Buffalo or Bull or Cow), Tiger, Rabbit (or Hare or Cat), Dragon, Snake (or Serpent), Horse, Goat (or Sheep or Ram), Monkey, Rooster (or Hen or Cock or Chicken or Phoenix), Dog and Pig (or Boar or Hog).
The animal names occasionally differ depending on the Oriental Country origin. The Chinese Yearly Horoscopes are basically built around these 12 Animal Signs.
