Horse Year

The Year of the Horse is a time of victory, adventure, excitement, and surprising romances. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings success. Energy is high and production is rewarded. A Horse year marks the middle of the twelve-branch zodiac cycle and is the culmination of activities begun six years ago. Actions and achievements during this important year can influence the direction of the next six years.

On a global scale, expect world economies to become stronger and for industrial manufacture to rise — or expect economic chaos and collapse, such as World War One in 1918 an Earth Horse year, or the Great Depression that started in 1929 Earth Snake year but the effects were felt in Metal Horse year 1930. 1966 was a Fire Horse year of radical social change and uprising here in the United States, and the peak of the Cultural Revolution in Communist China. Under strong Horse’s influence, there is not middle ground. Horse is a warrior, along with Horse’s most compatible signs Tiger and Dog.


Tao Te Ching verse for Horse

The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it.
We can only describe their appearance.
They were as careful as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapeable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.
Do you have the patience to wait until your your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arises by itself?
The Master does not seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting, she is present and can welcome all things.
