Happy Chinese New Year – The Year of the Horse

The Chinese New Year was celebrated on the 31st January and 2014 is the year of the horse.

The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people’s ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as ‘Qianli Ma’, a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals half a kilometer).

Chinese astrology makes for interesting yet conflicting reading. For example someone born in a horse year is described as;  Horses are proud yet sweet-natured, arrogant yet oddly modest in their approach to love, envious but tolerant, conceited yet humble. They want to belong, yet they are burdened by their need for independence. They need love and crave intimacy yet often feel cornered, pressured.   What?!@!*$>#!
Happy Chinese New Year everybody!
