Gung hey fat choy, everyone! Happy Chinese Lunar New Year and welcome to the Year of the Horse! Isn't this a great photo of a young woman and her horse enjoying a good laugh together? I found it on teh interwebs.
What can we expect in a Horse Year? According to Susan Levitt and Jean Tang in Taoist Astrology:
The year of the Horse is a time of victory, adventure, exciting activities, and surprising romances. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings success. Energy is high and production is rewarded. . . . On a global scale, expect world economies to become stronger and industrial manufacturing to rise -- or expect economic chaos and collapse . . . . Under strong Horse's influence, there is no middle ground.
Well, given all that, you'd better ensure good luck and prosperity for the upcoming year by exchanging a small coin with a friend today! Click here for details of this fun little ritual.
