Chinese New Year will be celebrated on January 31, and will mark the beginning of the Year of the Horse, which represents freedom and emphasises reconnecting with nature and enjoying life’s unexpected twists. Astrologers insist they have it from the horsemouth that the year will be a tempestuous and galloping ride for many people.
In Chinese astrology, the horse symbolises hope, victory in battle, happiness, vivacity and loyalty. This will be an ideal year for people to travel, plan surprise romantic getaways, make life-changing decisions and secure business victories. The wild and wilful spirit of the horse will have a dramatic impact on the world economy and the year will also be one of upheavals as stock prices and GDPs fluctuate chaotically. Snap decisions might ‘feel right’, but people should hold off on making impulsive investments, lest they end up backing the wrong horse.
