What Does the 2014 Chinese New Year of the Wooden Horse Represent?

I have done much research for the upcoming 2014 Chinese New Year and to be honest majority of the information out there seems to have a fear based undertone. To keep things simple and level headed, know we all have our cycles, it's that natural rhythm to life. 

January 31st, 2014 to February 2nd, 2015 will be the year of the Wooden Horse which is symbolic of new beginnings. The dominating element is Fire, which could represent a lot of stirred up energy in a positive way and for some could create the occasional "hick-ups." Yet, the simple suggestions below can help offer ways to prepare in general.

Once the New Year arrives many will literally "hit the ground running," so get ready.  The Year of the Water Snake was about planning and the year of the Wooden Horse will be all action. It can be a very sociable year for many and a great year to positively showcase your skills-talents and finally travel; as some say more off the beaten path the better.

Being mindful of budget unless you have the true confidence and knowledge with investing is an area to step carefully in. If you are not Strong in this area, it would be wise to speak with a professional who can offer advise with this topic such as with a finical adviser and accountant.  Wisely pick and choose where you spend your money; how often you go out to eat, extra spending, ..ask yourself is it a want or need? This is a year to be a bit more conservative for some so you have the "hick-up" cushion.

Because this is a high energy year, do your best to keep your health in check, which is always suggested no matter what but especially this year.  Create a well-balanced diet; take those vitamins, exercise and know when to rest so you can keep up with the fast paced energy.

Be mindful of your communication with others, stay honest and address issues as they come up in a peaceful way so they do not become prolonged.  This includes with your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife. This is also important with family, friends and even co-workers.

As the year progresses, say about half way, the energy will become more and more stabilized.

"Be mindful of your communication with others" ... always a very important thought, no matter the year. And especially true in anything related to the real estate business.

Thanks for sharing these thoughts, Laura ...
