2014 is the Year of the Horse

January 31st, 2014 was the lunar new year for our Seattle Korean restaurant, marking the arrival of the Year of the Horse. The Horse is the seventh sign in the Chinese Zodiac, and people born under it are said to embody traits of strength, energy, and independence. They are also known to be a little self-centered, exhibiting problems with authority and reacting poorly when they cannot get their way.

Horses are most often attracted to careers that allow them to be active and be around others. They often like to be the center of attention, with the power to act as their own bosses with their innate spontaneity and adaptability. If you are a Horse, you may do well as a journalist, an actor, a salesman, an athlete, or a teacher.

The spontaneous nature of Horses causes them to have impulsive, passionate relationships. These can be exhausting and potentially over-dramatic for their significant others, though Horses do tend to mellow out as they grow older.
