LOS ALTOS, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The year of the Wood Horse begins January 31st, 2014. Characteristics of this year will include passion, ambition and determination. People will stand up for what they believe in and make sure that authority does not undersell the importance of human rights.
"This year should amplify humankind's compassion and caring for the welfare of humanity. Politically, Heads of State will not enjoy the same backing as they did during the Year of the Snake. The lucky stars will move away and they will find support for their leadership to be waning," says Marina Lighthouse, Feng Shui consultant and the creator of FengShuiShopper.com, one of the West's most visited web-based Feng Shui stores.
"Financially, international relationships during certain months of the year will be tense and the market will slow down. The tendency will be to take profits and not reinvest. Because there is a serious imbalance in the five elements for the most part, one should be very conservative and go for the long term instead of short-term investments."
Revered throughout history as an animal that man could depend upon and utilize to great benefit, the Horse is extremely energetic and optimistic, preferring to see the good in people and the positives in the world. This means that the year looks to be bright and socially dynamic, but the added quality of the Wood Element takes us along a thoughtful and caring path. This is because, according to Chinese astrology, the Wood Element characterizes a philosophical and deeper level of thought.
The Chinese Zodiac has 12 animal signs, each with a different character and significance. Unlike Western astrology, Chinese astrology is based on birth year, not birth month. Moreover, its focus is on the concept of fate and then works towards altering difficult forecasts and enhancing good fortune. Lighthouse's new eBook, Chinese Astrology Predictions and Feng Shui for 2014, gives readers detailed adjustments and timing for the year ahead.
