I want to wish those of our members who have been busy celebrating this event with family and friends (or even helping their elderly neighbors decorate their house ;)), particularly our resident Challenges Aficionado anemone, a Happy New Year and best wishes for happiness and prosperity during this new year. (heart)

I understand today is the first day of year 4712 according to the Chinese lunar calendar, and that this year is the year of the horse. Here is a picture from Malaysia's capital of Kuala Lumpur:

The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people's ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as 'Qianli Ma', a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals 500 meters).

Strengths
People born in the year of the horse have ingenious communicating techniques and in their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented, earthy but stubborn. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are popular among friends, active at work and refuse to be reconciled to failure, although their endeavor cannot last indefinitely.

Weaknesses
They cannot bear too much constraint. However their interest may be only superficial and lacking real substance. They are usually impatient and hot blooded about everything other than their daily work. They are independent and rarely listen to advice. Failure may result in pessimism. They usually have strong endurance but with bad temper. Flamboyant by nature, they are wasteful since they are not good with matters of finance due to a lack of budgetary efficiency. Some of those who are born in the horse like to move in glamorous circles while pursuing high profile careers. They tend to interfere in many things and frequently fail to finish projects of their own.

Thank you MarkFL for the best wishes! It seems to me you know more about the strength and weaknesses for those who born in the year of horse than I am!:eek: I also didn't realize until now that John Travolta, Aston Kutcher, Emma Watson and even Jackie Chan were born in the year of the horse!(Sun)

Happy Chinese New year, anemone (a.k.a. Isbell. I learned a bit of a Legillimency lately!)

Thanks for all the information Mark. I was born in a year of the horse, and the descriptions seems to kinda represent me (not perhaps the strengths but the weaknesses seem to match). :p
