January 31, 2014, begins the Chinese Year of the Wood Horse. Horse years place great emphasis on hard work and tenacity. 2014 could present fantastic opportunities for business, travel and adventure, but these things will require decisive action.
Prepare for all the changes and energy you'll face in your own life this year with a personalized 9-Star Ki Forecast.
In general, "you snooze, you lose" could be the action-oriented Horse's motto. Furthermore, dishonesty and injustice may backfire spectacularly this Chinese New Year. The forthright Horse does not reward those who achieve their goals through underhanded methods.
The Wood element is ambitious, assertive and heroic. By aiming high this Chinese New Year, you can achieve much more than you ever dreamed. Settling for second best and sitting on the sidelines may result in terrible disappointment.
In a Wood year, you'll fare better by working to improve your life, rather than trying to maintain the status quo. Apply for jobs that pay more, afford greater satisfaction and offer more leisure time. Demand more from your romantic partner, and don't tolerate shoddy behavior.
Horse years are wonderful times to expand horizons, explore unfamiliar territory and get plenty of mental stimulation. If you've been thinking about taking or teaching a class, this would be a wonderful time to do so. Learning a foreign language and mastering a musical instrument are also favored activities in 2014. Beware of biting off more than you can chew, however, because Horse years can prompt people to overestimate their abilities.
