Year of the Earth Horse

Under the grounded influence of the Earth Element, the Earth Horse becomes the most stable and sensible of the Horse types. The Earth Horse can be considered the "work horse" member of the Horse sign and in turn, can move on a more steady path towards their goals. While other Horse signs are quick to jump into situations, the Earth Horse prefers to think things through and consider all the angles. These qualities give the Earth Horse a notable business sense and a gift for fiscal responsibility. The Earth Horse is also more open minded and capable of processing suggestions in a reasonable manner. Socially, the Earth Horse is often well-liked as they can be quite compassionate and considerate of others feelings.

With their gifts for compassion and drive for success, there are many potential careers for the Earth Horse to explore. The financial understanding of the Earth Horse could translate to success in banking, business, or financial advising. Similarly, the determination and stability of the Earth Horse could do well in law, medicine or research. Those born under the Earth Horse sign have been known to work tirelessly to achieve great success. This can be seen in the career of Kobe Bryant and Zoe Saldana, who were both born in 1978.

Although the personality of the Earth Horse has many strong points, their zodiac influence also has its fair share of weaknesses. The considerate nature of the Earth Horse makes those born under the sign indecisive and uncertain at times. It is also this desire to play it safe that can lead to the Earth Horse missing out on opportunities for excitement. Those born under the Earth Horse sign are encouraged to find balance between their shrewdness and the need to take chances in life.

Earth Horse in Relationships

Horses, being spontaneous, have a tendency to fall fast and hard for others. They tend to give themselves fully in each new relationship a quality that ends up chipping away at their inner being. Fortunately, this exhausting trait mellows with age and relationships are stronger and more stable later in life.

Earth Horses will work to meet their goals, no matter how long it takes. They’ve got the ability to view situations from all perspectives and this ability is especially useful when it comes to making decisions. They’re very adaptable and they’re funny too.
