Those born in the Year of the Horse are cheerful, well-loved and on the ball. They have more sex-appeal than great beauty. They are down to earth, charming, perceptive and loquacious. However, their changeable ways can sometimes make them susceptible, rash and stubborn. The unpredictable Horse falls in Love easily yet falls out of Love with the same ease. Very often the independent Horse leaves the family home at a young age or starts work young. Those born in the Year of the Horse have an adventurous soul but are famous for their quick mind and good head for finance. Self-confident, vivacious, impetuous and maybe even a little impudent, they dress flamboyantly in bright or bold colors and patterns. They love physical and mental activity and are easily recognized by their fast yet elegant movement, quick reflexes and refined way of speaking. They react quickly and take decisions on the spur of the moment. They have a quick mind and although may lack stability and perseverance, they make up for this with an open and flexible mentality. Fundamentally they are non conformist and are often called playboys (or playgirls)! They like chaos, love being the center of attention and enjoy giving and receiving compliments. They are as successful in love as they are in business. On the ball and agile, they shrewdly evaluate every situation and manage to turn things their way. On the negative side, they are impulsive and obstinate with an explosive temper (although they often forget why they were angry in the first place). Some people find them unpleasant and this makes those born in the Year of the Horse lose their credibility. They tend to rush others and get irritated when others don't act quickly or efficiently. They ask a lot of others but not wiling to give so much back, especially when their precious freedom is at stake. They can be childish, mean and capricious and are often scatty, forgetful and prone to reaching quick conclusions. Those born in the Year of the Horse, want everything done their way and, being egocentrical, want the life of their relatives and friends to revolve around theirs.
