Year of the Horse. It’s all pretty complicated this Chinese zodiac thing. It’s the wooden  horse, which means different things from the water horse, and the metal horse, naturally.  And how you personally will get on this year will depend on your own year.  Mine is the rat, and apparently horses and rats are fairly incompatible so I might expect a rough ride this year. Anyway, best wishes for yours.
