Characteristics of Those Born in the Year of the Horse
Horses in Chinese mythology are representative of the people as a whole—ever growing, proceeding and evolving. People born in the year of the horse are typically energetic, hard-working, warm and intelligent. They posses a number of strengths and weaknesses…

Year of the Horse: Strength
Their strengths include being excellent communicators who like to take the spotlight, especially in their community. Due to this spirit, horse babies make friends very easily and tend to be the ‘life of the party’. Horse babies also tend to be quite clever and have entrepreneurial and adventurous careers.

Year of the Horse: Weaknesses
Despite the long list of positive traits, those born in the year of the horse do have a number of weaknesses—one of which being that they are great communicators…but often talk far too much. They also can be quite stubborn (and often don’t listen to the advice of their loved ones) and can become easily frustrated, especially by failure. Any downturn in life or work can easily turn to pessimism, which is why they need to surround themselves in people who can lift them up during hard times.
