The horse is part of a 12-year-cycle of animals that make up the Chinese zodiac. These interact with the five elements: wood, metal, fire, water, earth.

2014 is the year of the wood horse, taking over from the year of the water snake.

It will be a fast year full of conflicts according to some astrologers, who see wood as providing fuel for the energetic horse sign. The later part of the year is “yin fire”, increasing the potential for heated clashes even more.

The upcoming Horse year is a 'yang wood' year, when people will stick more to their principles and stand firm. Negotiations and compromises are difficult, as people tend to fight for their ideals.

If your art involves wood or fire, you will do well. Metals and waters will do badly: this will, unfortunately, affect our artists who work with precious metals. Although some of you also work with fire, so it could go either way...
