The Horse PersonalityPopular literature in the West speaks of “men being from Mars and women being from Venus.” Well, in Chinese astrology, the Horse is associated with male and its complementary sign, the Sheep, with female characteristics. Independence is the “male” characteristic epitomized by the Horse. Anyone who loves cowboy movies knows the first thing a cowboy does upon riding into town is to tie up his Horse. You are most likely adventurous, fun loving and enjoy the outdoors as well as a variety of sports. It’s no chore to get you to go to the fitness center to work out, but you truly enjoy the combination of working out and being outdoors---hiking, jogging, biking, rock wall climbing.
You can be a human dynamo. Furthermore, you can stay in an action mode a lot longer than the rest of us. Others probably see you as a vivacious person due to your high energy level. It’s not only your vitality that catches our attention and wins our respect. You’re quick in both mind and body, and cut a dapper, colorful figure as you rush in and out of our lives. In general you have to have things your way---now. Occasionally impatient and rash, you tend to engage in impulsive behavior more than the rest of us. In truth stability is not your strong suit. You are fickle, especially when it comes to fashions
The Horse In RelationshipsYou are a fun member of any team and likely to be found where the action is. Yes, even though you are most independent, you still love to be around lots of people. The catch is it’s you who decide when and where the party will be. No one ever said you were afraid to make a decision. It wouldn’t be surprising if you’ve been accused of being headstrong more than once. Add to this a stubborn streak and a bit of a temper, and you can be difficult to be around at times.
You can also be selfish and self indulgent as you pursue your interests oblivious to ours. You can be hard to live with when you don’t get your way. This independent streak of yours and your emotional aloofness can be a magnet for those of the opposite sex. People always seem to be drawn to what they cannot have. But like the Eagles songs says, "Desperado you better let somebody love you, you better let somebody love you before its too late." In other words, do not let your independence be an obstacle to true love.
