The Horse has been renowned around the world for its extremely hardworking and determined personality since History began. In Chinese Astrology, these animals are also known for their quick intelligence, ingenuity and sensible approach to life. When a Western sun sign of Aries individual is born in the Horse's astrological time period, they are thought to inherit a part of their conscientious nature. An Aries Horse is generally shrewd, decisive and persistent. These personalities have a quiet confidence that gives them an air of smugness in addition to their seemingly reserved personalities.
An Aries Horse is clever, and he or she knows it, but they try not to use this ability to take advantage of others. They would rather utilize this personality trait to help others where they can. These individuals are usually happiest in jobs where they will be appreciated for their efforts. They are not especially driven by a financial gain in their choice of career, as enjoying their work is more important to them. The Aries Horse usually makes lots of friends easily, and sometimes finds it difficult to find time for them all. This is especially true when they settle down in a long-term personal relationship.
The Aries Horse may be accused of neglecting their friends when they meet a person they want to spend the rest of their life with. If their chosen partner is not too possessive, they will manage to still keep in touch with their many acquaintances. These Aries are prepared to make sacrifices for their soulmates, and are inclined to be a little too self-sacrificing when in love. An Aries Horse makes a wonderful partner, who will be accommodating, very loving and respectful, and incredibly loyal. They like debating, but not arguing, so any issues in the relationship will be talked through and not be left to build up.
A strong independent streak runs through the Aries Horse personalities that cause them to long for personal freedom. When they are thinking about bonding with another person permanently, these people should connect with someone who admires their individuality, and will encourage it rather than try to suppress it. In their home life, the Aries Horse is not the tidiest of people, but they do attempt to keep on top of things. If something needs doing, they will usually just get on and do it without complaint. They tend to enjoy decorating and do-it-yourself projects in their homes.
Although the Aries Horse is shrewd, they do not always use their astuteness where money is concerned. The weakness of this personality is that they are not normally very good with money. They do not like the responsibility of finances and may need to seek others assistance in handling it. They are exceedingly prone to overspend and only think about the consequences later; this weak spot in their characters usually improves as the Aries Horse gets older. It will usually be when these personalities start a family that they slowly learn not to be so frivolous with cash.
