2026 - The year of the Horse

THE HORSE
2026, 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954

31th of January 2026??

The noblest of the signs, horses are popular, quick-witted, charming, cheerful, and talented. Horses are doers and cannot bear inactivity. Industrious and enthusiastic, horses love to be in the centre of things due to their high-spirited nature. Nimble, yet graceful, the horse is a sign of elegance that will charm almost anyone with its wit and ardour.
This intelligence and fluidity will enable horses to fit into all kind of situations, especially with high flyers. Horses work hard and need to put their ideas to test at once. On the flip side, horses get bored easily, detest routine and find it hard to chill. They are hot-tempered and hot-blooded. Quick to warm to an idea, they are also quick to lose interest and trot away. They are impulsive and need to exercise control on their words and actions, as they come across sounding arrogant and condescending when riled up.

Health: Basically, horse people are very healthy, most likely because they hold a positive attitude towards life. However, heavy responsibility or pressure from their job may make them weak. Therefore horse people shouldn't do overtime too often and then come home very late. Also, they should refuse some invitations to join parties at night.

Career: Jobs involving communicating with others attract horse people most. The sign of horse stands for leadership, management and decision-making. Horse people dislike taking orders. The horse can make it in any career that demands neither solitude nor meditation, for he is an extrovert and he needs to be surrounded by people who approve of him and flatter him. Good career choices for horses include: politician, publicist, sales representative, reporter, language instructor, explorer, inventor, translator, bartender, performer, tour operator, librarian or pilot.
They most likely to achieve great things in life.

The Chinese zodiac signs are determined by the lunar year in which you were born. The Chinese believe the animal ruling one's birth year has a profound influence on personality, and destiny.
The saying is: "This animal hides in your heart."

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

Some web sites say the year 2017 is the 4717th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the day that was used as the first day of the year was the winter solstice, which was around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st meant nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C., then year 2014 is the 4714th Chinese year
