I really appreciated the words of this astrologer Marc Borax on the year of the horse. I could not have said it more eloquently:

2014 is the Year of the Wood Horse, when the underlying structures that your life is based on become tested to see how well they provide stability and motion. These twin themes of stability and motion are not just the main themes of the year but also the basic facts of life in the cosmos — Earth’s motion around the Sun provides the stability of the returning seasons, and Earth’s spinning around its own axis provides the gravity that keeps us from being flung into space. Even as we hurtle through space so we remain rooted to the planet. Even as we never return to the same point in cosmos, so we remain anchored to our own essence, the soul purpose of why we’re here.
