The Earth Horse is extremely thoughtful and helpful and will always try their best to help their friends, family and workmates in whatever way they can. They are more careful than some of the other types of Horse, but are still wise and will be careful with big choices. The Earth Horse can be quite indecisive at times which is mainly due to their wise and careful nature. They have a quiet and friendly nature and are admired by their friends and family and will enjoy a great and happy social life.
The horse is an extremely lovely person and usually has a massive amount of friends and admirers. They love to meet new people and will always be at a party or large social gathering as they love being the centre of attention. They have many good leadership qualities and are admired for their honest and to the point manner. They love to be involved in debating as they have a very persuasive manner. They also have a very nimble mind and can incorporate facts very quickly. They can suffer from a bad temper from time to time although it does not usually last very long, this can lead to them saying things they later regret. They are not the greatest at keeping secrets.
They have a huge range of interests and try to involve themselves in a wide range of activities but sometimes they can get involved in so many different activities that they actually forget to complete the majority of their tasks before moving onto the next one. They may also get caught up in the latest craze and set aside all their current affairs until the craze dies out.
The Horse likes to have a certain amount of freedom and independence in their life. They hate to be bound by the rules and regulations of society; they like to think that they should only have to answer to themselves. Despite this, they still like the support and encouragement of others.
The Horse is determined to go far in life due to their many talents and likeable nature. They enjoy challenges and are a systematic and untiring worker although it will take them a long time to recover and start again in any enterprise if things should go wrong for them. Success means everything to the Horse which means if they fail at something it is disastrous to them.
They like to have variety in their life and they like to try out a lot of different things before settling down in one particular job, although they will still keep their options open to new opportunities. They have a restless nature and can easily get bored. The Horse will excel in any position that gives them sufficient freedom to act on their own initiative. Although they are not particularly bothered about accumulating great wealth, they are very careful with their finances and will rarely experience any serious financial problems.
The Horse loves to travel and visit far away places; they will be tempted at some point in their life to live abroad for a short period of time, due to their adaptable nature they will fit in very well. The Horse pays a lot of attention to their appearance and will usually like to wear smart, colourful and rather distinctive clothing. They are seen as attractive people to others and will often have many romances before they settle down. They are very loyal and protective to their partner, but despite their family commitments they still like to have a certain amount of independence and have the freedom to carry on with their own interests and hobbies.
They will find that they are particularly well suited to Tigers, Goats, Roosters and Dogs. They can also get on well with the Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Pig and another Horse. They will find the Ox too serious and intolerant for their liking. They will also have difficulty getting along with the Monkey and the Rat.
Earth Horse Chinese Zodiac
People born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Horse are open, honest, and romantic. Horse people never tell a lie, but the flip side of that is that they can be blunt, and may end up offending others unintentionally. Really, the Chinese sign of the Horse just blesses its people with a keen sense of honestly.
Despite the occasional tendency to be blunt, people born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Horse are usually surrounded by friends. Bright and gregarious, Horses can usually be found at the center of the social activities. Horse people are able to be friends with any other sign in the Chinese zodiac.
Although people born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Horse make friends easily, they do not usually have many deep friendships. Like their animal sign, Horse people need to run, and enjoy solitude at high speed. As a result, they do not keep commitments well, and have learned to think carefully before committing to any relationship. A Horse may disappear from your life for years, and then reappear, ready to pick up the friendship where is left off.
This lack of ability to commit naturally translates to a Horse’s love life as well. Horses are usually content to remain single until an advanced age, if they settle down at all. This doesn’t mean that Horses go without love-in fact, they are quite romantic. A person born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Horse loves romance and all the trappings, but the relationships do not usually last long.
As the personality of the Horse is tempered by one of the five elements in the Chinese horoscope, certain personality traits are modified. Horse people that are modified by the Earth element are far more grounded and steady than most Horses. While the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Horse has the tendency to be fickle, when it is modified by Earth is it much changed. Earth Horses consider carefully before making decisions and do not just gallop off into the sunset like other horses.
Earth Horses make use of their intelligence to examine every angle of a thing before making a decision. They are far more practical than others born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Horse. These Horses are still very easygoing as other Horses are, and very adaptable to changes. Horses in general are great at taking things in stride, and Earth Horses can be very calm about last minute changes.
People born as Earth Horses according to the Chinese Zodiac are not quite as commitment shy as other Horses, because they can analyze things and see the benefits of a long term relationship. They still love to travel as much as other Horses, though, so anyone attempting a relationship with an Earth Horse should love travel as well, or be prepared for some separation.
Earth Horses are more responsible with their money than other Horses, because they can see the benefit of saving for a rainy day better than the average Horse. In general, Earth Horses seem a little more mature than other Horses.
