Year 2014 is yang Wood Fire Horse year

The Chinese New Year of the Year 2014 will be Friday, January 31, 2014, year of the Wood Horse. 

As seen on Chinese zodiac calendar, 2014 is going to be the Year of the Horse. This will begin on the 31st of January 2014 and will end on the 18th of February in 2015.

2014 is the year of the Horse.  It is the Jiă Wŭ (甲午) year (Wooden Horse). Jia is the first of the ten celestial stems and wŭ (Horse) is the seventh of the twelve terrestrial branches and thus 1/7 marks the year of the Horse.

Horse people are energetic, intelligent and are commonly physically strong. They like to stay at peaceful places. They are very good when it comes to communicating with other people around them, thus making them sociable and they are quite friendly too. Horses love crowded places as well as entertainment. Because of the Horse natural friendly characteristic, he is loved by many.

Be careful if you find yourself getting stressed out. A small headache could lead to a larger issue if you don't deal with it. The best thing you can do is schedule in enough sleep and rest. You should also be on guard for things that could affect your circulatory system and lower legs.

Horses will need to learn to cooperate with others rather than to forge ahead independently in the Year of the Horse, 2014. While Horses don't always enjoy taking advice from others, 2014 will bring the most success to those who collaborate and cooperate with others, so Horses will be wise to be more accommodating.

The best thing to do at the start of the year is to :
  1. Go the temple or church and seek divine assistance to your undertakings
  2. Perform good deeds whenever or wherever you can to wash away the negative energies lingering around you
  3. Perform (if you are a Feng Shui believer or a Taoist buddhist) the An Tai Sui (Pacifying Tai Sui) Ritual twice a month
  4. Carry all the time all throughout the year an amulet of Tai Sui
  5. Wear a Pi Yao or Chi Lin (Dragon Horse) pendant or bracelet

Chinese New Year in the Philippines

The Chinese New Year is not usually considered a public holiday in the Philippines, but in 2012 it was declared to be a national holiday. It is celebrated not just by the sizeable Chinese-Filipino community but by the entire nation. Establishments go all out with decorations and many participate in traditional Chinese New Year customs. Chinatown in Manila, considered to be the world’s oldest Chinatowns outside China attracts thousands of visitors every Chinese New Year. Niangao are popular gifts and can be purchased almost everywhere. Red envelopes are also given out with a person’s fortune.


The year of the Horse promises to be a year of ups and downs, as we ride the back of the galloping horse. There will be an effort to rebuild the economy and restore a sense of hope and optimism in the people, but unexpected events, combined with developing stories that had their roots in the last Year of the Snake, will serve to prevent much progress in these directions.

Wishing you all a prosperous 2014 Year of the green Horse.
