Roll on the Year of the Horse

Yes I know it's now the Year of the Ox. However, I am apparently a Horse. My Chinese zodiac says:

"The horse personality is often willing to give as well as expect a lot of liberty. These people are extremely independent and confident. The horse person is very quick-witted, inquisitive and determined. They are very good at recognizing patterns: she or he is on to the thought in your mind even before you've expressed it. In general, these people are gifted.They adore being the center of everyone's attention, but they prefer to be recognized for their skills and are easily flattered. On the other hand these people have an honesty and genuine warmth which attracts lots of people and helps them make new friends. People as a rule confide in a horse person because he/she is sincerely interested in their thoughts and feelings and is able to help with both wise words and an action, but there is a small problem about it - the horse person is so excited by new discoveries that it is difficult for them to keep a secret. This is not something that arises out of malice or revenge - sometimes they just cannot help themselves.

It is easy to inspire such a person by new ideas and he/she tends to act on them without delay, carried away by the excitement of the moment. But it is also important to remember that there is a danger for a horse person to be too impulsive and it may cause some problems in the future. And if they do not see the result of their efforts, it is rather natural for them to turn their attention to a new project and head off once again, brimming with new ideas. The horse person is always ready to offer good advice and can be very persuasive, but his/her confident and carefree approach hides inner doubts. Those who know such a person will recognize this, and offer the support and reassurance he/she needs. Males born under the year of the Horse are considered charming and attractive to members of the opposite sex."

But not females? Damn!

Actually, there's an awful lot of me in that description....makes me wonder if there isn't something to astrology after all.

Then the information goes on to say:

Positive Traits
Lovable, witty, free-spirit, enthusiastic, independent, creative, optimistic, unflexible, a long life

Hmmm...."unflexible"? The rest is good.......but THEN it says:

Negative Traits
Anxious, greedy, childish, defiant, selfish, gullible, quick-tempered, rebellious, unattractive, over weight

Well, THAT sure put me in my place! You can check your Chinese zodiac info here.
