2014 is a Universal Year 7, the Year of the Wood Horse.
Wood is related to tree or green therefore, 2014 is also called Year of Green Horse, or Year of the Green Wood Horse. The Chinese Year of the Horse will arrive on Tuesday, February 4, 2014.
The previous Year of the Wood Horse was 1954; the year 2002 was the Year of the Water Horse.
The Horse is the seventh sign of the Chinese Zodiac. If the year ends in 4 it is a Yang Wood year and if the year ends in 2 it is Yang Water (2002). Yang is perceived as dynamic, bright and masculine. Expressed in Feng Shui, the Yang, masculine energy is white. Historical Events for Year 1954. The Horse Year calls attention to the liver and gallbladder.
Horses are “proud yet sweet-natured, arrogant yet oddly modest in their approach to love, envious but tolerant, conceited yet humble."
Horses are also multi-talented and hardly ever liars. Money is important to the Horse. Unlike other Chinese Zodiac signs, Horses Do Not thrive in their own year, Horses never have an easy time when their Chinese Zodiac sign is activated, particularly the Fire Horse. So if you have the sign of the Horse in your birth chart, exercise caution in 2014, avoid hazardous or unstable situations and of course taking risks with your money, play it safe next year.
Some societies believe horses are omens of death and evil. Another myth is that people born during the year of the Fire Horse are tarnished with bad luck.
People born during Fire Horse years are said to have ten times the creative genius, hardworking, energetic, rebellious, attractive, hard-headed, opinionated, self-centered, and more socially obsessive than other Horses. Whatsoever happens, this secretive Horse, the Fire Horse almost always overreacts. They say that women are especially unpredictable Fire Horses. They say that Fire Horses eat away at their family’s savings and investments, neglect their children, and drive their father and husband to an early grave.
Fire Horses are born in 1966.
Famous Fire Horses: Adam Sandler, Halle Berry, Janet Jackson, Mike Tyson, Salma Hayek, Abby Lee Miller, Gordon Ramsay, Darius Rucker, Cindy Crawford, Donna Edmondson, Meg Cabot

UNIVERSAL YEAR 7
The malefic 16 is also hidden in 2014, it most often works through the emotions and typically brings sudden calamities or unforeseen events, illicit love affairs, scandals, humiliation, disappointment in marriage, and money losses. Don’t be too overconfident in 2014.
The good thing is there is a significant potential for an upsurge in anything to do with the spiritual, and improvement in employment, agriculture and mining before yearend. On the other hand, the most difficult tasks in 2014 is keeping a clear mind, not forcing matters, amiably intermingling with others, and finding time to rest.
If you have 7 in your Blueprint, mysteriously it’s your year in the spotlight! A phenomenon I discovered on my own, I didn't read about it or hear about it from anyone else.
But keep in mind when I write that 7 will grab the spotlight, ‘spotlight’ does not necessarily mean you’ll be cast before the eyes of the world. For ordinary folks, it simply means that by and large, a certain circumstance in your life, or a significant event in your life demands your attention, and the spotlight is on that issue or event. And for the most part, whatever the situation, it is characteristic of 7 and affects the material plane – favorably or unfavorably.
7 rules flooding, oceans and waterways. 7 also rules fog, literally and metaphorically.
delusions, mental illness, obsessions, phobias, feeling disoriented, and problems with the lymphatic system, feet/toes, gout, and pineal glands. This is particularly true for folks with a major 7 in their Blueprint, 7 Born, Ages that reduce to 7 (16, 25, 34, 43, 52, 70), and folks in a Personal Year, or Pinnacle 7.
7 can also be an indicator of ill health (particularly emotional/mental related issues), depression, clairvoyance, loneliness, rebelliousness, hopelessness, bitterness, anxiety, and/or fatigue.
Every year we get the opportunity to retrace our steps; in 2014 we reexamine a few unresolved matters from 2012. Suggesting to me that universally once again we’ll reassess our collective deep-rooted attitudes and lifestyles and engage in a war of words. 2012 also brought to light that online social networking service, microblogging services, and video-sharing websites will play a significant role in the future so perhaps some matters turn our attention to in this regard.
I suspect the simple black dress is coming back and so is pastels in good taste and simple strait line dresses and pants.
October 2014 opens the door to 2015, a fast paced year, a year of big business expansion, large-scale projects, a boom in engineering jobs and projects, and advantageous alliances with foreign countries. 2014 starts the slow process of clearing the way for the Directive Cycle 9, a phase when opportunities span the whole world.
