The horse is the seventh symbol in the Japanese Zodiac. In the past, horses and people lived and worked side by side, and their mighty bodies and their power made them the symbol of “life”. This sign represents “liveliness” and “openness”.
Horses are cheerful, sociable, and decisive. They are also versatile and excel in many fields, but tend to get bored easily and leave things unfinished. They exhibit a vain streak and are big spenders.
You can identify a horse if they:
- Are skillful in paying compliments.
- Get into troubles for the slip of the tongue.
- Are quick to catch on to a trend.
Compatibility with other signs
Horses are most compatible with tigers and dogs. If these three come together, it generates a great positive power. Horses also have a mutually beneficial relationship with sheep. Rats are the least compatible with horses.
In Japanese, a horse is “uma” in romaji, and is written as “馬” in kanji. In the Japanese Zodiac, however, it is written as “午”.
