The question for the horse this year is whether to favour the canter, the trot, the gallop or the pace. With the Tai Sui now firmly in your rear-view mirror, horses can ring in the new year with some confidence in their confidence. The number of cosmic baddies assailing you this year is much lower and you'll be spending less time horsing around and socking them, leaving you more time to blaze ahead without being muzzled. Saddle up, it should be a good year.

Illness should not be able to outflank you this year. Even with 205 bones and the ability to sleep standing up, the horse is in for a healthy year. Lumbar yourself up to the doctor when necessary. Remember that your teeth are not self-cleaning and your coffin bone will stay securely underfoot. A little care will hold you in good steed.


If you've got a bit on the side, such as some cash stashed in stockings, this might be the year to dock it. All the regular sources of income, from your salary to investments, are favoured in the heavens. You also have the Gold Cupboard Star with you this year, ensuring that financial projects come to fruition. Treat yourself to an apple and a roll in the hay - you'll be rolling in more of the filthy lucre soon enough.


A frequently flighty horse's heart should be a little more settled this year. Love may not be the mane item on your menu, yet it is still a time to filly your days and nights with love. You shouldn't even have to nag yourself to do it. The second and eighth months are well-aspected for breaking new ground in relationships if you're out and roaning around. For those already spoken for, enjoy the stable year.


The caution horses can bring to the table will work to your advantage this year. The Official Tally Star is in the vicinity and it engenders arguments. In more serious instances, such as court cases, you don't want to be caught foaling around. Take care of where you're putting your hoofs down, and to whom it is you're directing your neighs – that will give you the best chance of advancing in work this year.

Guiding hexagram from the Yi-Jing (Book of Changes)

Progress. The powerful prince is honoured with horses in large numbers. In a single day, he is granted audience three times.
The sun rises over the earth: the image of Progress. Thus, the superior man brightens his bright virtue.
The Forest of Changes:
A broken-down ox and a bony horse; seeking profit I take them to market, nothing to delight me.
Our man in the Forest of Changes became lost and time travelled back to an age when horses were undervalued and beset by afflictions. Find your powerful prince and watch the sun rise over the earth, time and again.
