The Chinese Zodiac is one of mystery and fascination, according to George Tang and his site. It has been around for thousands of years and is often used not just in China but in Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Nepal, Sri Lanka and other Asian countries. It works similarly to Western astrology except that instead of 12 monthly signs that govern the sky throughout the year there are 12 signs that govern one year at a time for 12-year cycles.

These cycles are based on the planet Jupiter and its orbit. It is the largest planet in our solar system and it is the basis for the signs in Chinese astrology. The signs are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Monkey, Horse, Goat, Rooster, Dog. Each sign has traits and attributes which dictate the path a person will likely be on for life, and it all depends on what year of the Chinese Zodiac that they are born under.

A person who is born under the sign of the Horse is born during the seventh year of a full 12-year cycle. Some of the more recent years of the Horse were 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, as well as 2014. The next Horse will be the year 2026.

Of all the traits found in those who are born under this sign the greatest are energy and enthusiasm. The element most closely associated with the sign is the element of fire.or, as it is pronounced in Chinese, Huo. Their lucky flowers include Calla Lily and Jasmine.

People born under this sign also tend to be lucky with colors like brown, yellow and purple. These individuals are easygoing and warm-hearted. They make friends easily. They like to be independent and because of their ability to maintain stamina, they develop great power in life. They have a very strong positive energy.

As for their weaknesses, they tend to spend a lot of money. This can be counteracted by their abilities to succeed in business. They sometimes do lack persistence when trying to succeed and that can get in the way of the power they do possess to endure in life.

Horses are well suited to the Tiger, Sheep, and Rabbit signs in the Chinese Zodiac. If they are matched at birth, they will make a well-matched pair with lots to share in common. They do all right with the Monkey sign and the Dragons or Dogs but should avoid the Ox, Rooster, Rat or other Horses.
