Year of the Horse - Traits, meaning and years explained

Updated: Mar 29

Welcome to the wonderful world of Chinese astrology, where the year you were born can say a lot about you! And today, we're going to focus on one particular zodiac sign - the Horse.


If you were born in 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, or 2026, congratulations, you're a Horse! But what does that mean exactly?

Well, first and foremost, Horses are known for their free-spirited nature. They don't like feeling tied down or restricted in any way. Give a Horse its own space, and it'll be happy as can be. They love independence and a peaceful, easy, mellow existence. Who doesn't want that?


But don't mistake their laid-back attitude for laziness. Horses are extremely animated, active, and energetic. They have a zest for life that's hard to match. And with their charming personalities and caring, selfless nature, it's no wonder people are drawn to them like moths to a flame.


Of course, Horses also like to be in charge of their own destiny. They're not content to sit back and let life happen to them. They want to make things happen, whether that's through starting their own business or travelling the world in search of their true calling.


One potential downside? Horses can suffer from "itchy feet." They love to drift off and do their own thing, sometimes to the detriment of their relationships and responsibilities. But hey, nobody's perfect, right?


Most compatible signs with the Horse

Now, let's talk about compatibility. If you're a Horse looking for love, your best matches are the Tiger, Goat, or Dog. You'll appreciate the Dog's loyalty and dedication to the family. The Goat and Horse will bond over their shared passion for creativity. And the Tiger and Horse share similar easy-going temperaments, making for a harmonious relationship.


Least compatible signs with the Horse

On the flip side, Horses may clash with Rats, Oxen, or Snakes. So if you're considering starting a business or going on a trip with someone from one of these zodiac signs, proceed with caution.

But wait, there's more! Did you know there are five different types of Horse in the Chinese zodiac? Let's break it down:
