The Sixty-Year Cycle Chinese Calendar: Earthly Branch Horse and Heavenly Stem Metal.
A person who is born under the sign of the Horse according to the Chinese Zodiac is a pleasant, happy go lucky type of person. Like the wild mustang, a Horse person loves to dash headlong into each wind, zigging and sagging to change direction whenever it strikes his or her fancy. Horses are very sociable people and are often found at parties, but they also value their time alone and will deeply value their independent gallops off into the sunset.
Although someone born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Horse needs people to be happy, he or she needs people on his or her own terms. In other words, Horses do not like to be tied down to any commitment, whether it is a job or a long term relationship. Just when you think you can rely on a Horse, something new will catch his or her eye and he or she will be off again. Just when you've written him or her off, your doorbell will ring, and it will be your old Horse friend ready with stories of his or her adventures. Due to this nature that Horses have, it is best to be cautious if you are considering a romantic relationship with one.
A person with a Horse as his or her Chinese horoscope sign is a lot of fun to be around. They know lots of fun activities, and are open minded and spontaneous. Horses are great at adapting to change, as they are intelligent and clever. A Horse person will have many talents.
As per the Chinese horoscope, every person's sign is affected by one of five elements.
Metal affects a Horse by making him or her even more independent. There is really no chance of pinning down someone who is a Metal Horse under the Chinese Zodiac. Relationships intimidate both male and female Metal Horses, who prefer to enjoy life as it comes and not think about tomorrow. Metal Horses are not very attached to money. They enjoy spending it while they have it, and if they run out they are talented enough to find a job quickly. They are no better at committing to a career than a romance, however, so Metal Horses are often between jobs.
Metal Horses are particularly suited to being performers. Since a person born under the Chinese sign of the Horse who is tempered by metal loves to travel, any performance career will satisfy that urge and make the Metal Horse happy. Horses love attention, and Metal Horses are no exception, so being on stage is a great career for one of these vivacious people.
It is difficult to resist friendship with a Metal Horse. Although he or she may seem flighty, he or she certainly has charm to spare. Metal Horses are open and honest, and prefer the truth even if it is blunt. Friends of the Metal Horse get used to hearing things that are not phrased delicately at all! Yet the Metal Horse does not mean to hurt; he or she is just scrupulously honest.
