Horse Outlook for 2011
1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002
If 2010 was a wild ride, you might be in for another roller coaster in the Year of the Metal Rabbit. Challenging years can often strengthen our character and refine our talents — like a coal’s transformation to becoming a diamond. This year will be a little under 50% favorable for you. You might get nauseous with all the ups and downs. Luckily, your sign is one of the most resilient and strong in the zodiac. Ride the tide when it’s high, and wade through when it’s shallow. Try to borrow some flexibility, sensitivity, and creativity from the Rabbit. Allow yourself and your life to be molded by the forces that be.

Are you feeling like a workhorse yet? If you’re burning the midnight oil, make sure you’re taking plenty of breaks to avoid exhaustion. This year might require some more stick-to-it than normal. Do you feel like you’re not getting the recognition you deserve? Under the Rabbit’s influence, you might need to just buckle down and bite your tongue. Even if you can’t see it yet, you’re building something important. One of your greatest challenges as a Horse is probably sticking around even when you’re bored. If you can learn the lesson of patience and quiet diligence, you might be surprised at how good it feels to reap what you sow.
You’re a Horse. You can’t be tied down. You have to run free to your heart’s content. But, is this need for freedom affecting your relationships? The Rabbit favors close companionship and attentive partnerships. This year might challenge you to finally make a commitment, or cut ties if you’re not willing. If you need a partner who can keep your pace, find an energetic Tiger to play with. Or, is it possible you can learn to compromise a bit of your freedom for the ones you love? I’d hate to see you risk losing something great because your independence gets in the way. Don’t give up who you are, but think about meeting your mate in the middle this year.
The Rabbit’s influence might bring your mood down a bit. While you yearn to gallop at lightening speed, this year’s animal is a bit of a burrower. Be cautious about falling into bouts of depression if things don’t go your way. Take advantage of sunny days to stay active outdoors. Pop Vitamin C like it’s candy. Hit the gym on your lunch break and make sure you’re eating your fruits and veggies. If you fall into a rut, it might just mean you need some rest. Make a conscious effort to relax and do nothing at least once a week. Those hooves will need some rest.
Try to curb your impulsive tendencies this year. While you will have some favorable months where money may be flowing, financial challenges could pop up quickly. It would probably be better to focus on long-term goals. What sacrifices can you make now that might help your cash flow next year? Could you take on an internship to learn a new skill? Can you stick out a low-paying job to boost your resume? Make financial decisions during your favorable months, but stay conservative during the unfavorable ones. Some Triple Metal days this year — where the element of the year, month, and day all match — could bring some money-making opportunities. Be alert.
