The Horse is the seventh animal of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs. When compared to Western astrology, it is seen as the equivalent of Gemini. In this article, you will learn more about the personality traits often linked to someone born under the sign of the Horse.
People born under the sign of the Horse tend to be full of energy and highly active. Known for their sex appeal, it's common to see a Horse dressed up and looking good. With a quick wit and cunning appeal, the Horse is often seen as a gifted person. There is something about the Horse that makes it quite rebellious. They arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t very happy when they feel pressured to make sacrifices for the good of the group or made to feel guilty if they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t.
Other traits associated with the Horse include:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Horses are social and can often be seen attending public events, such as concerts, parties, sporting events, and other gatherings.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Even though they are full of energy and ambition, Horses still have a difficult time belonging.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Horses can be impatient.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Horses tend to have an ego and selfishness about them that makes it hard for them to become interested in the problems of others.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Horses are hard workers and when they get their hands on money, they are pretty good at making the most of it. However, they tend to lose interest in certain tasks, which could hurt their ability to truly succeed in certain fields.
Traditional associations of the Horse zodiac sign include the southern direction, the month of June, the summertime, the fixed element of fire, the color magenta, and the gemstone topaz.
