Calculating 'When is the Chinese New Year in 2014'
The fact that the date of Chinese New Year varies within about a month is a
clue that it's linked to the new moon. A rough, and almost infallible guide
is that the Chinese New Year follows the second new moon after the winter
solstice. The winter solstice falls on December 21st, the next new
moon is January 1st 2014, the second new moon is on January 30th 2014.
People born in the Year of the Horse are popular. They are cheerful, skilful with money, and perceptive, although they sometimes talk allot.
They are wise, talented, good with their hands, and sometimes have a weakness for members of the opposite sex.
They are hot-blooded about everything except their daily work. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are very independent. They are most compatible with Tigers, Dogs, and Sheep.
Astrologically, the horse is placed directly opposite the rat. The rat is the creator and the horse is the "consumer."
