Year of the Horse at Open Door
30 Jan, 2014
Once again, it’s Chinese New Year. On January 31, 2014 we begin the Year of the Wood Horse! Our annual Chinese New Year presentation began with a slideshow of modern-day China, particularly of the southern province of Yunnan where the speaker spent 1996-2000. This was followed by a contrast of Western and Chinese astrology and finally an in-depth look at the trends of the Year of the Horse and how they will shape events of the next 12 months. 2014 will be a year full of opportunities, cooperation and high speed. Building upon the careful planning and decisions made the Year of the Snake in 2013, the Horse is a good year to get on the saddle and ride: run forward with significant purchases, business ventures and wilderness travel. At the same time, the warnings of the year are to make sure one’s decisions are sound, that purchases are carefully budgeted and that we push ourselves to be a little more extroverted than usual. The Horse is an exciting year and we wish all of you a fun, expansive and fruitful year of personal growth and accomplishment. You’ll have time to sit back and reflect next year during the restful Year of the Sheep in 2015.
