In Vietnamese culture, horse is the icon of patience and persistence, as well as an animal which can bring fortune and prosperity to its “owners”, including those who truly own a horse and those who were born in Horse year. However, because the horse is sign of Fire, Vietnamese consider horse month (July in Lunar Calendar) is the time when plant in the ground stop developing and begin to fade.

“Horse” people are often known for being fast and enthusiastic in every action. They look energetic and light-hearted, and they always attempt to finish their works as soon possible. That explains why most of “Horse” people love physical activities, especially sports and adventure. However, the gestures of “Horse” people are elegant, and their talks seem kind of humble compared to the pace of their movement. Another feature of the “Horse” people is that they are generous and love uproarious atmosphere, but sometime because of natural characteristic of temper like “Fire”, “Horse people” are easy to lose temper with other people, particularly those who cannot catch their pace in work and play.
