People born on the Year of the Horse

People born on the Year of the Horse – Constantly on the Move

2014 The Year Of The Horse

2014 The Year Of The Horse

日本語

The Horse is by nature a gregarious creature and those born under this sign are generally very popular with a wide circle of friends. Given as they are to “horsing around,” they tend to be the life and soul of every party! For centuries the Horse has been the symbol of freedom in cultures all around the world, and this is the case in China, too. Those born in the Year of the Horse do not take kindly to restrictions. Independence is their lifeblood: they need to feel free to go where they please, when they please.

1990 – Metal Horse (24 years old in 2014)

The element of metal gives the Horse an extra dose of arrogant stubbornness, but also adds a degree of resolution that may be lacking in Horses generally. The truth is that Metal Horses need an enormous amount of stimulation to keep boredom at bay. If Metal Horses are kept busy doing something they find interesting, then they’ll work incredibly hard and achieve great things. On the other hand, if they find themselves bored or stuck in some kind of a rut, their behavior can get very wayward, almost out of control. That’s when Metal Horses are liable to simply take off for distant shores or another job, another relationship, whatever it is that can hold their interest for a while.

1978 – Earth Horse (36 years old in 2014)

This is a very different type of horse altogether. The element of earth adds a weight and gravity that other Horses simply do not possess. Earth Horses have a strong sense of responsibility that is definitely not shared by their brethren. At the same time, the element of earth lends a slowness and cautiousness that is not merely uncharacteristic of Horses, but can actively work against the positive attributes of Horse nature. The ego may not be so large, and the fickle skittishness not so obvious, but Earth Horses’ sense of fun and adventure is not so well developed wither. Those born under this combination may well be wise and astute, but on the down side, they are not especially exciting Horses.

 1966 – Fire Horse (48 years old in 2014 – Female Fire Horse is Hinoe Uma)

This is a decidedly powerful combination. “Flamboyant” may be one way of describing it, “loud” could be another. The least you can say is that this type of Horse is never backward in coming forward. Those born with this mixture of animal and element are naturally charismatic, always pushing to the front and inevitably finding themselves in the position of leader.

However, they do not really understand tact or diplomacy and are more than likely to speak before they think or simply ride roughshod over others. Although Fire Horses have very magnetic personalities, they do have rather large egos to match the scope of their ambition, and this can sometimes get in the way of their own progress.

1954 – Wood Horse (60 years old in 2014)

The element of wood has a calming influence on almost all animals, and this is particularly true of the Horse. Those born under this combination are a less unruly lot than their brethren and will actually attempt to cooperate with other people. Underneath this external helpfulness, there is still an independent-minded creature that does not handle taking orders very well, but the ego is considerably tempered. Like all Horses, wood Horses have a need to constantly experience new things, but at least they make an attempt to leave their affairs in order before moving on to new pastures. However, Wood Horses do not have quite such quick and accurate perception as other Horses and must, therefore, be careful not to be “taken in.”

1942 – Water Horse (72 years old in 2014)

This type of Horse is especially self-centered, and at this worst, he can show an almost total lack of consideration for others. Water Horses love their creature comforts and enjoy dressing in very bright, stylish clothes. The elusive nature of water, coupled with the easily distracted nature of the Horse, means that those born under this combination have an extra-short attention span. Needing to be on the move all the time, they find it difficult to stay anywhere for long. Water Horses make up for having itchy hooves by being extremely charming, and they are usually forgiven for their shortcomings. They have a way of making their lack of consideration seem rather daredevil, and consequently, to coin a phrase, they “get away with murder.”

DJ Kool Herc

DJ Kool Herc

DJ Kool Herc is considered by many to be the “The Founder of Hip-Hop Culture.” In the early stages of Hip-Hop music, he brought his sound system to block parties in the Bronx and began playing the brief rhythmic sections of records which would become known as “breaks.” Using the two-turntable set-up of the disco DJs, Kool Herc’s style led to the use of two copies of the same record to elongate the break. This breakbeat DJing, using hard Funk, Rock, and records with Latin percussion, formed the basis of Hip-Hop music. DJ Kool Herc’s music along with his announcements to his dancers, called B-Boys and B-Girls, helped pave the way to what everyone now knows as Hip-Hop.

“Hotter Than July” BBC Documentary Screening

Fifty years ago, the legendary Stevie Wonder released his first single “Fingertips”, which topped the Billboard Pop Singles and R&B charts and launched his career. In celebration of this seminal release, SummerStage and ImageNation present an evening dedicated to one of Wonder’s historic music moments, his Soul Train performance. In this legendary episode of Soul Train, Wonder reinvents the Soul Train theme song. Taking from his inspiration, presenting partner Injoy Enterprises has guest-curated performances by a team of talented musicians and singers who will put their own personal spins on Wonder’s hit songs. “Hotter Than July” A Soul Train Tribute to Stevie Wonder will feature: Mika, Gloria Ryann, Asa Lovechild, Darien, Mike Hammond, Chris Robb, and Vivian Sessoms, all backed by the funk band Jesse Fischer & Soul Cycle with DJ Spinna.

DJ Spinna

DJ Spinna is an extraordinary deejay, producer, re-mixer, and music historian possessing a remarkable mix of musical abilities. He went on to become a cornerstone of Hip-Hop’s golden era providing the musical canvas for lyrical giants like Eminem, Mos Def and Talib Kweli. A producer of timeless classics and collaborator with Hip-Hop legends like Brand Nubian, Masta Ace, Guru, and The Jungle Brothers, he also built a reputation as a crucial re-mixer reworking major label hits for the likes of De La Soul, Mary J. Blige, George Michael and a hard-driving soulful remix of Michael Jackson’s “We’re Almost There.” A protégé of Stevie Wonder, audiences will often find him travelling and performing with the artist.

“Hotter Than July” is a rare BBC documentary that examines Stevie Wonder’s musical insight and preparation for his 1980-1981 USA tour. Infused with personal interviews, backstage antics and an appearance at the Washington Rally to celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr and more, this film gives intimate insight into one of music’s most celebrated stars.
