Chinese New Year 2014 falls on Friday, January 31st, and is the Year of the Horse!
Energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able: the spirit of the horse has an unremitting effort to improve. This year is predicted to be full of changes-a year full of true spirit, grit, determination, vitality and endurance.

According to Susan Levitt, a Marin County astrologer and tarot reader,
“The Wood Horse year is a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure, and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel, and the more far away and off the beaten path the better. Energy is high and production is rewarded. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory. But you have to act fast in a Horse year. If you are not 100% secure about a decision, then don’t do it. Events move so quickly in a Horse year that you don’t want to gallop off in the wrong direction.
Keep in mind this year that Horse energy is free spirited, wild, willful, and independent. Horse has a refined instinct that acts fast, on the spot, unlike Horse’s opposite the Rat who thinks and plans before acting. The time for pondering and planning was 2013 Snake year. Horse year is time to act fast, buy that home, launch that business, travel the world, make a big purchase, get a promotion at work, have a breakthrough – take a leap and fly. If it’s right, then there’s nothing to think about. Just follow instincts.”
Why do I pay attention to other countries cultural events? Because I believe we are all one and our country is made up of all kinds of people and their cultures. I find our differences stimulating and interesting.
What do you think? Do you find other’s beliefs and ceremonies beautiful? If so, which is your favorite? Leave me a comment, I’d love to know!
Happy Chinese New Year!
