2014: Year of the Horse

Hi all,

Happy Year of the Horse! This is the last chapter of our feature: {Get Ready for CNY14 with Sasha}. As you may already know, 2014 is the year of the horse. But do you know what does this animal sign signify? What are the astrologers predict about 2014? Okay, let's get into it!

The Chinese zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is spread over a 12 year span. Each year is cycled among the following animals: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. 2014 is the year of the horse, and previous years were 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, and 2002.

People who born in the year of the horse are believed to be energetic, active and proud to entertain. They generally love to be the centre of attention and to delight audiences. 

For the people whose horoscope is horse, some feng shui masters suggest that 2014 is the year to play low key in order to avoid conflicts. For those who weren't born in the year of the horse, 2014 is believed to be a prosperous and lucky year.

Also, on the year of your animal there is a tradition that might seem a bit odd. It is believed that you should wear red underwear or lingerie to block evil spirits. haha funny eh?

I personally don't take these predictions or superstitions too seriously. It's just something fun to look at. I believe that the new year is going to be what you make it.
