2026 - The year of the Horse

THE HORSE
2026, 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954

17th of February 2026

The noblest of all the signs, horses are popular, quick-witted, charming, cheerful, and talented. Horses are doers and cannot bear inactivity. Industrious and enthusiastic, horses love to be in the centre of things due to their high-spirited nature. Nimble, yet graceful, the horse is a sign of elegance that will charm almost anyone with its wit and ardour.
This intelligence and fluidity will enable horses to fit into all kind of situations, especially with high flyers. Horses work hard and need to put their ideas to test at once. On the flip side, horses get bored easily, detest routine and find it hard to chill. They are hot-tempered and hot-blooded. Quick to warm to an idea, they are also quick to lose interest and trot away. They are impulsive and need to exercise control on their words and actions, as they come across sounding arrogant and condescending when riled up.

Thanh Lam, Nam Le, Don Ho, Nguyen Cao Ky, Paul McCartney, Steve Jobs, Aretha Franklin, Aimee Garcia, Bill Gates, Neil Armstrong, Aretha Franklin, Barbara Streisand, Chopin, Clint Eastwood, Davy Crockett, Denzel Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, Gilberto Gil, Hall Berry, Harrison Ford, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke, Janet Jackson, Mike Tyson, John Travolta, Kathleen Turner, Angela Merkel, Michelle Rodriguez, Moises Alou,  President Teddy Roosevelt, Rembrandt, Rene Russo, Rita Hayworth, Robert Wagner, Salma Hayek, Sean Connery, Ted Williams, Tea Leoni, William Baldwin, Petra Taal.

The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
