Happy Chinese New Year! It’s been a pretty rough start to the year for me so I was pleased when I remembered that Chinese New Year is today – a perfect opportunity to start afresh and turn 2014 around. I’m determined that the year won’t be a total washout, there are just a few more decisions that need to be made and all will be well. Not only is it Chinese New Year, but it is the Year of the Horse – my birth year, which I can only see as a sign that I really am getting a fresh start.
I’ve been reading into what all this Year of the Horse business means and I think I like the sound of it – apparently the horse is a wood element and this means adding fuel to my fire, which, if you ask me, is just what I need after these knock backs.. about time I started thinking about my own passions and plans for the future.
According to experts, those born in the year of the horse are animated, active and energetic just like horses and they love being in a crowd. They are quick to learn independence – just as foals can walk minutes after birth – and they have a straightforward and positive attitude towards life. They are known for their communication skills and are exceedingly witty. I’d like to think that this describes my character well, I deal well with people and am usually a very positive person, perhaps certain events recently have hidden this but I hope to be back to normal soon. My whole life and work is dedicated to communication and I am quite an independent person, but am looking forward to my plans for next year which will make me even more so.
According to Raymond Lo, a feng shui and destiny consultant, the year of the horse is a year in which people are likely to stand firm on their principles, making negotiation difficult. This can only be a good thing! After all that has been going on, I really need to work out what I want to do with this situation and to stick to my principles because as far as I’m concerned there is little negotiation to be had.
Bring on the year ahead, I hope to be free as a horse to do the things I really want to do and to make changes that will help create the future I really want. Happy Chinese New Year!
