East Meets West
by Syndicated Astrologer Eugenia Last

I lure with my magical motion and enchantment
My strength is unmistakable and breathtaking
I care little for routine or idle motion
With the wind in my face I embrace the future
Unscathed by what others do or perceive
Only interested in novel experiences
I embrace life and live to explore and seek adventure
I live in the moment high-spirited and unbeatable
I choose freedom over security


The Year of the Horse will be a driven, determined and exhausting year, filled with adventure and reckless courage. It will be hurry-up-and-wait with high speed and plenty of frustration. A year that challenges us to come out of the gate sprinting, only to mock those who run out of steam. Strategy will be required if you plan on beating the horse to the finish line. Self-confidence is encouraged and learning as you go is a must.

This is not a year for the meek or the passive. Action will be necessary if you want to avoid being left behind. Change is inevitable and excuses unacceptable during this fast-paced year that breeds contempt for anyone unwilling to stand up and make a difference.

It's a year to be smart with your money as you watch the economic climate whirl around you unstable and looking for any sucker thinking what you accumulate measures what and who you are.

The astrological chart of the States shows signs of steady progress, however, the gains being made must not be regarded as a ticket to be frivolous. There is still a long way to go in which discipline, hard work, moderation and conservatism will be necessary.

A turning point regarding how this great nation handles debt, expenditures and the economy is apparent. Overspending is likely to lead to a bigger problem that becomes more apparent by mid-year. Adding to debt will result in a backlash that will leave the U.S. in a vulnerable financial situation as 2015 rolls around. Troubles with regard to negotiations, settlements and agreements will be cause for alarm that can lead to a no-win situation due to outside influences.

The chart of the United Kingdom indicates that their charm may not be enough to spare them from getting involved in the middle of negotiations between nations. A call to help will be difficult to reject due to implications that develop on home ground causing a necessity to take action. On the bright side, this great nation usually finds a way to use dignity coupled with uncanny insight that guides them through whatever adversity they face. On the economic front, uncertainty and restrictions are apparent throughout the year.

Canada's chart continues to show growth, however, it becomes more apparent that the false economy propping up this great country will begin to encounter a correction that will continue as this nation undergoes a Saturn return influencing a make-it-or-break-it situation regarding its alliances, negotiations and agreements with other countries.

Overall, the Year of the Horse will be filled with adventure and a strong desire for liberty and entitlement. It will be a year that favors doers who are willing to seize any opportunity and impetuously claim their victory. It is not a year for procrastination or watching life pass you by. It's time to stand up and be counted.
