Personality of the Horse

In Chinese culture, the Horse is the symbol of absolute happiness. This sign is endowed with the vivacity, loyalty and elegance of a thoroughbred animal, but with a childish anxiousness as well.

The Horse is at himself in society, and he is a very pleasant and refined partner for conversations. The Horse's rational and intelligent thinking easily convince the others of the soundness of his points of view.

But a good speaker is hardly a person of action, and this is the Horse's flaw. What prevents the Horse from taking action is the fear of failure, because he never gets out of an adventure unharmed. On the other hand, when familiar with a domain and aware that he has support to count on, the Horse ventures without hesitation.

The Horse doesn't like staying in one place. Permanent movement animates him but he prefers avoiding obstacles rather than jumping over them.

The Horse's dynamic spirit is forever active. He doesn't usually waste or idle his time away but he is neither attracted by long term plans because in this case he doesn't feel motivated anymore. Generally, the Horse lacks confidence.

The Horse: Work and Money

The Horse needs to feel independent, free and, above all, not to feel under observation.

The elegant way of speaking and persuasive words make the Horse an excellent salesperson, especially if this means spendind his day on the road. The Horse can't stand jobs that keep him locked in an office. Where's the action? The ideal job for a Horse has to keep him on the move.

The Horse likes being original and making fast decisions. Jobs that require patience and thoroughness don't suit him. The Horse can only be himself if he is on the move. All he needs to know is when and where to stop.

The Horse does not put away and is not consistent as far as money is concerned. If he has it, that's a good thing, if he doesn't, he can live without it.

One thing is certain: money is not a Horse's first goal in life. On the contrary, quite often it's the last thing on his mind. And if we consider the Horse's unstable lifestyle, too - especially regarding his job, which he often changes - it's pretty obvious why the Horse's financial situation is usually uncertain.

If he happens to be in great need of money, the Horse won't hesitate to sell his furniture or personal possessions. He is more of an idealist rather than a materialist. He trusts his luck and he doesn't doubt for a moment that he can go over any problem. Sometimes the Horse's opportunist nature comes in helpful.

The Horse: Romantic Profile

Always in love, proud as a stallion, the Horse lives intensely the strong emotions that overwhelm him when he falls in love. Every time the Horse finds a new partner, he jumps heart and soul into the adventure.

The Horse is full of passion, but without being jealous or possessive. He is a wonderful life partner, very generous with his dear ones.

But a Horse's passion does not last long because he gets bored quickly. At the first sign of routine, the Horse starts looking for fresher grass.
