Cheerful, quick-witted and popular. With a happy outlook, independent, subjective and self-centered. She is also good at handling wealth.

A person born in this year is said to be cheerful, popular and quick- witted. He has raw sex appeal rather than straight good looks. Earthy and warmly appealing, he is very perceptive and talkative. His changeable nature may lead him to be hot-tempered, rash and headstrong at times. The unpredictable- able horse will fall in love easily and fall out of love just as easily.

In most cases the Horse will leave home early. If not, his independent spirit will goad him to start working or to take up some career at an early age. An adventurer at heart, still he is noted for his keen mind and ability to manage money. Self-reliant, vivacious, energetic, impetuous and even brash, the Horse is a showy dresser, partial to bright colors and striking designs to the point of being gaudy on occasion.

The horse loves exercise both physical and mental. You can spot him by his rapid but graceful body movements, his animated reflexes and fast way of speaking. He responds quickly and can make snap decisions. His mind works at remarkable speed and whatever he may lack in stability and perseverance, he will certainly make up for by being open-minded and flexible. Basically, he is a nonconformist.

This is the most feminine sign of the zodiac. A person of the Sheep year is called the Good Samaritan of the cycle. He is righteous, sincere and easily taken in by sob stories. He is likely to be mild-mannered, even shy. At his best, he is artistic, fashionable and a creative worker. At his worst, he tends to be easily overcome by his emotions, pessimistic and withdrawn.

The Sheep is known for his gentle and compassionate ways. He can forgive easily and be understanding about others faults. He dislikes strict schedules and cannot take too much discipline or criticism. Fond of children and animals, he is close to nature and a general homebody. The Sheep is apt to mother or even smother the objects of his affections. He is possessed by varying moods and finds it impossible to work under pressure. He also finds it difficult to be objective.

Lively, witty, inventive and intelligent, a fast learner with good memory. Good at problem solving but can be too clever and become lazy, opportunistic and manipulative. They also know social skills well but can be selfish and egoistic. Also unbeatable in terms of talent and wealth.

Of all the animals in the lunar cycle, the Monkey bears the closest resemblance to the Naked Ape himself, Man. It is therefore no wonder that it should be he who will inherit most of man's intelligence as well as his capacity for deceit.

The Monkey is the sign of the inventor, the improvisor, and the motivator in the Chinese zodiac; a charlatan capable of drawing everyone to him with his intimate guile and charm. Being the quick-witted genius of the cycle, he is clever, flexible and innovative. The monkey can solve intricate problems with ease and will be a very fast learner. He can master anything under the sign and usually has the aptitude for being a good linguist. A person born in this year will be successful at whatever he choses to do. No challenge will be too great for him.
