The dragon and horse are both spirited, dynamic and fun loving creatures who like to‘ live on the edge.’

According to the five constructive cycles of the elements, wood fuels fire. Hence, the energy of the green horse diligently supports the dragon’s endeavours, as he goes full throttle unleashing his bold and fiery personality. Watch out for temper flares and hot headedness.
Career: You are creative and ingenious at work, winning goodwill from all quarters. Dragon is quickpaced and needs to be more patient with his colleagues. Choose your words with caution, for misdirected anger will lead to fights and nervous breakdowns. Keep your personal and professional life separate at all times.
Money: Your money graph stays stable and there are some lucrative opportunities on the horizon. However, don’t risk your hard-earned savings as sudden losses are on the cards.
Health tip: Staying calm and composed is the golden key to happiness this year. Destress as often as you can!
The snake is poised, deliberative and contemplative whereas the horse is restless, impatient and always searching for greener pastures. Snake seeks stability, the horse change and yet, they get along just fine (both belong to the fire element).
The key is to stay centered within so that you can not only adjust to the fast pace of things, but charge ahead boldly this year.
