Personality Traits:
People born under the year of the Horse tend to fall very easily in and out of love, as well as being both cheery and very well-liked they are willful and irritable but often very nice-looking. Some of their other personality traits include: a love of exercise, a tendency to make rash choices and they have a unpredictable character.  They are somewhat lively, impulsive and independent, unbiased, adaptable and proficient and think nothing of making a snap decision.  They possess the ability to "manipulate" people and events. Often they rush those that are not as quick as themselves.  They have a love of independence and free-will and give preferentiality to things done their way, although they do tend to be forgetful and "jump to conclusions".  Their powers of persuasion are extraordinary and they are neither envious or mistrustful by nature; instead they loathe wasting time, can be variable, cannot stick to agendas and have great difficulty in unwinding.  Although having many friends, they like better, to rely on themselves and prefer their way of achieving their aims.

The year of the Horse: is a time for progress, it is a very happy-go-lucky, frantic and wild year that is both adventurous and satisfying.  There will be an upward turn to the year with a deal of good humour.  It is a year for going it alone, perhaps with some shocks in store but on the whole a courageous and daring year.
