The monkey and the horse share no special bond, unless one was to master the reins and ride into 2014 writing your own success story.
Chinese elements state the horse contains strong fire, while the monkey shares a relationship with metal. The latter can be moulded by the flames, thus making it a difficult year for the monkey unless he conquers his fears and steer the horse towards its personal goals.
Opportunities may be limited this year for the monkey, but prudency has conquered bigger mountains.
Look before you leap is the mantra to follow, because any wrong move on your part and the ripple effects could very well be detrimental for your future.
Career: 2013 was the year of the Snake, another fire element that proved testing for the monkey. This means things are bound to get tougher in 2014, especially with a work assignment that has been pending these past few months.
Brace yourself for setbacks, but look upon the situation as a challenge that can only help you deal better with the bigger goal you have set forth for yourself.
Health: The monkey is known for its fun antics; but this year, pushing yourself for that extra laugh may just backfire on your health. Slow things down a little and use that excess energy of yours to take up a fun social sport that will still bring in a fun element, but channel it towards a healthier outcome.
This may also be the time to bond with estranged family members and other loved ones; who knows what the future may bring.
Love: There is no love lost between the monkey and the horse, so put it this way: if you have love in your life, try to maintain a balance without rocking the boat too much. If you have a single status, you may have to master the horse for a long ride to distant lands to find someone special. But don’t expect that relationship to cement any further beyond mere courtship this year.
