The Chinese Year Of The Horse - Articles Surfing
The Chinese zodiac has twelve signs and, unlike in our western astrology, in Chinese astrology each sign lasts for a year. Legend has it that as Buddha was about to depart the earth he summoned all the animals to say goodbye. Only twelve turned up so, to show his appreciation of their loyalty, he vowed that from then on each year would bear the name of one of the animals.
Chinese astrology is based on the Lunar Calendar. This means the Chinese New Year does not fall on the same day each year and can vary by as much as 3 weeks. So for babies born in late January/early February it is necessary to consult the charts to determine the correct sign.
You will find a chart of the dates and signs below.

If you were born under the Chinese year sign of the Horse, you're great fun! Horses are usually strong, handsome people with bags of energy, natural athletes often drawn to outdoor sporty activities. Not suited to paperwork, people born under this sign dislike dealing with detail and need plenty of exercise to keep alert.
Horses need to be the centre of attention and need to be liked. However, they can be stubborn and want complete freedom to do as they wish regardless of other's feelings. Instinctive and intuitive, Horses care little for other people's opinions.
People born under this sign like to dress up and they organise great parties. Never dull, they are likeable and great fun, if you're going on holiday and want to take a friend, choose a Horse!
