For those of you with an interest in Chinese Astrology, here is a quote about what the Year of the Horse will mean for us all:
“The Year of the Wood Horse, January 31, 2014 through February 18, 2015, is expansive and exuberant! It rewards honest opinions and disciplined thinking.
Social networks will be buzzing. People will be more forgiving and cooperative. It’s a fabulous year for travel, parties, and community events.In Wood years, teamwork brings out the best in everyone. You’ll find it easier to craft common sense solutions and have fun in the process. Families working together can attract exciting opportunities in the first half of the year. Later there will be more time to follow your heart.
Like many things in life, a bright start will be quickly followed by months where patience and responsibility are your tools for success. Many will be at a crossroads that requires courage, flexibility, and original solutions. Challenges to the way you have always done things do not mean anything is wrong. Wood energy encourages slow growth and practical solutions. This disciplines the exuberant promises people tend to make under the influence of Horse. Hard work and creative innovations promise to leave a lasting and positive mark.
With such optimistic energy, it’s easy to make too many commitments and then become frustrated and scattered. Don’t hesitate to let others know. Ask for help. Focus more on taking care of yourself. Sometimes the best thing to do is take a break from all technology and spend more time close to nature.
