Recently on AstrologyBay, we began featuring each individual Chinese Zodiac sign through the years to get a more accurate understanding of their corresponding stars, elements, and planetary influences. This is because, in the Chinese theory of the Five Elements, it is believed that regardless of the sign you may share with someone, if you were born a different year than them, you will have different traits and influences on your personality entirely. So, following along with that theory, we’re going to take it back to the ’70s. Or, more specifically, the 1978 year of the Chinese zodiac, also known as the earth horse.
The earth horse is an enthusiastic, confident, and independent sign that has a great destiny ahead of them. Although, 2020 may give the horse trouble. So for today, we’re going to delve into this earth sign deeper and pick apart the chart of the horse and take a more in-depth look into their personality, career, love life, and more.
1978 Chinese Zodiac Earth Horse Overview
- Lucky numbers: 2 and 6
- Colors: Brown and yellow
- Element: Earth
- Past years: 1918 and 1978
- Next year: 2026
To start, the earth horse is a very optimistic, confident, and responsible sign. Because of their outgoing nature, they are naturally very popular in social settings and love to make new friends. This sign is also reliable and known for their honesty, which makes them true friends and excellent lovers.
On the other hand, the earth horse can be impatient, pessimistic, and ill-tempered. When something goes wrong in their life, the earth horse is likely to shift their mind to only see the negative side of all around them. This, combined with their impatience, can cause them to give up on goals when a minor obstacle comes along. This is their biggest fault and something they will definitely need to overcome in order to be successful and happy in their life.
Earth Horse in Career
- Best career: Tourism, travel agent or entrepreneur
When it comes to their career, the earth horse excels best in jobs where they can work with people and make their own connections. Thus, many under the sign of the horse are naturally drawn to independent businesses, such as creating their own. Their sharp mind and strong intellect will help them excel in business investments, ideas, and advances naturally and with little trouble.
On the other hand, if the horse isn’t looking to start their own business, they also do well in jobs having to do with travel or tourism. This is because they are quick-thinkers, excellent communicators, and are naturally enthusiastic. This can persuade and get people excited about travel adventures or tourist attractions that otherwise might fall flat. Above all else, the horse is what you might consider a natural “schmoozer”, and hey – that’s not always a bad thing.

The Earth Horse in Love
- Most compatible match: Tiger, pig, and sheep
- Least compatible match: Rooster, rat, and ox
In love, the horse is kind, gentle, and easy-going. They tend to look for someone long-term instead of short term affairs and will be very loyal when they do find their person. The male earth horse is passionate and charming, while the female earth horse tends to be compassionate and faithful. No matter your gender, the horse is incredibly soft when it comes to their lover with loyalty to last a lifetime.
However, the earth horse may struggle with doubts and a lack of confidence. This can cause them to be impulsive, distant, and lack emotional depth. If the horse is mistreated in a relationship, whether it’s from lack of attention or too much attention, they will leave the relationship immediately and not look back. This unforgiving demeanor can cause minor arguments and disagreements in a romantic relationship with an earth horse, so take heed.
1978 Chinese Zodiac Earth Horse Overview for 2020
Unfortunately, the 1978 year of the Chinese zodiac overview for 2020 looks rough. On the career front, the earth horse can expect their career to be a bit bumpy. This could mean frequent job changes, unhappiness at work, or even a loss of career overall. The important thing is to hold your head up and be patient. As long as you stay positive, new opportunities will arise, they just may take longer than you’d like.
In love, if you are single, you may meet your one true love this year but are advised to take it slow and not rush anything. Going too quickly or smothering this person with love could result in heartbreak. On the other hand, if you are already in a relationship, you are expected to have more ups and downs than ever before. However, this is only because you are moving towards something more serious and meaningful. Have patience. These moments will pass and result in harmony later on. Above all else, you just have to keep holding on.
In conclusion, earth horse, you’ll want to play it safe this year and lie low. Although it may be tempting to move forward in all areas of your life right now, the stars are simply not in your favor, so it’s best to slow down and focus on what’s already in your life. This is an excellent time to learn to appreciate the friends and family you do have and work on your aspirations. Trust us, your day in the sun is coming. It’s just not here yet.
