Characteristics of a Horse Based on Chinese Astrology

I was born in 1978 and I find all the characteristics of horse mentioned at and very spot on. It bests describes my persona. Here it is:

  • Energetic, good with money and very fond of travel, Horses are the nomads of the Chinese Zodiac, roaming from one place or project to the next. 
  • Paradoxically, Horses feel a simultaneous yearning for independence and freedom. 
  • Horses crave love and intimacy, which is a double-edged sword since it often leads them to feel trapped. 
  • An impatient streak can lead Horses to be less than sensitive to others' needs. 
  • Horses are self-reliant and, though they might lose interest fast in a tedious, nine-to-five day job, are willing to do the work necessary to get ahead.
  • This Sign really knows how to motivate others, though, and get a lot accomplished. 
  • Once they find some peace within themselves, they can curb their wandering tendencies and learn to appreciate what's in their own backyard.
  • Those born under the sign of the Horse are a flexible group of people. They tend to be stubborn when it comes their ideas, but they are also incredibly patient when it comes to hearing out what other people have to say. 
  • In spite of some of their misgivings, Horses are also incredibly loyal friends and partners. Perhaps it is because first impressions have a lasting effect, or simply that they are inclined to do well by others. Whatever the case for an individual, however, they are consistently there when friends need a person to turn to or a shoulder to lean on. 
  • They are also quite capable of resolving conflicts, both their own and other people's. Altogether then, those born under the sign of the Horse are some of the most favored members of society; and though they don't often aspire to greatness they tend to achieve a manner of it through the compliments and adoration of their friends.
  • Surprisingly though, they tend to be successful due to the charity they express towards others and the kindness it returns. 
  • They will happily go along with their partner's lead, although they will speak up when they truly disagree with something. Such patience can be exhausting, however, and those born under the Horse will occasionally need some time to themselves in order to refresh.

Horse personality traits
Like Tigers with whom they are most compatible, Horse people can be a jumble of contradictions.

Cool but hot-blooded, hard-nosed but humble, impatient but extraordinarily tolerant, the Horse is above all defined by hard work and self-reliance.

Although Horses work well in groups, they prefer to work by themselves and exhibit extraordinary levels of energy and concentration. They are good with their hands, but can be seen happily losing themselves in accomplishing any given task.

In social settings, they are cheerful, charismatic and sometimes overly talkative as they clairvoyantly finish other's sentences in conversation. However, they are also often the first guest to depart, usually due to a feeling of becoming too "penned in". year of the horseConversely, Horses are happiest in large crowds in open spaces and enjoy the camaraderie found in pressing the flesh at outdoor gatherings or concerts.
