Features
    Calendar of ancient symbolism— The Year of the Horse The Chinese lunar calendar was first introduced by Emperor Huan Ti in 2637 BC; a cycle of twelve years, each named after a different animal. Legends abound how the zodiacs were chosen. Some believe Lord Buddha summoned the animals to bid him farewell when he parted the Earth and rewarded his loyal subjects by naming a year after them—the Year of the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. The character of each animal is believed to influence the events, political and economic conditions of its year; even the personality and temperament of individuals born during its cycle. The year 2014 is ruled by the Horse. The Horse personality embodies life, liberty and happiness. He’s amazingly agile, physically and mentally; a master problem-solver. After everyone else has given up, the Horse will saunter in with an ingenious and practical solution—and often charge ahead before the rest of the group can catch up. The Horse can be impatient, but he’s also forgiving and kind. His sunny disposition is irresistible. Give him plenty of space to frolic. The Year of the Horse also ruled 1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990 and 2002. However, people born in January or February should consult the Chinese lunar calendar. New Year does not automatically fall on January 1st. This celebration is better known as the Spring Festival and coincides with the first day of spring—a date that shifts from year to year depending upon the lunar cycle and solar year.
