About the Horse
Horses are an active and energetic sign, they enjoy being out and about and do well in crowds.
Their pleasant and easy going nature makes them popular with their peers.
Generally healthy due to their positive and active outlook on life, freedom & independence are essential to the horse. A low boredom threshold means they act on impulse & can be unpredictable, although ironically enough they are quite good with money.
From a young age this sign is usually smartly dressed and displays a quick wit, often knowing what others are thinking before they voice it. Their need for freedom is strong and leads to rebellious tendencies and they often leave home at an early age.
Their high energy also creates impatience and a hot-headed attitude although it usually benefits them in their professional life.
The horse is a highly romantic sign and gives their all to intimate relationships making them vulnerable. There is a duality to their nature which creates contradictions in their character. This strongly affects their emotions as they crave love and intimacy but easily find themselves feeling pressured & cornered.
Their mates would do well to remember that they must retain their individual spirit to be happy. It should also be noted that the horse is seldom angered, but when it happens it’s explosive in a massive way.
