DOB 23/08/1978, Earth Horse - Life struggle
Hi, My life has been a struggle. I'm a 45-year-old male, married twice, no kid. 1st marriage was in 2008 and divorced in 2014. My second marriage was in 2015 and our relationship is not good, always quarrel. I do not have a kid but want to have a kid. Not sure if I will have my kid or not. Always in financial debt and struggling financially. Since 2015 frequently changed my jobs and in 2023 started my own business. Which is a failed business and left me in huge debt. Since January 2024 I have now closed my business and searching for a job to support my life and pay back my debt. Want to know in the coming months or year, will I have a kid, whether my relationship with my wife will get better or not, will I be financially stable and pay back my debt, whether will I have a good career or job, how will be my health, will I get happiness in my life, etc... Any help will be good to know which will help my mental peace.

I'm very sorry about your experience but the zodiac horoscope cannot predict so many things. It can only offer a brief fortune trend actually. According to the prediction, this year is favorable for you and you will see an upward trend in the new year. Some good chances will appear and your life will gradually become better. I know the life sometimes can be so hard. However, try to keep positive and you will definitely find its beauty at last.

It is not a very lucky year in finding a job or partner. You need to be more positive, improve yourself and go out to meet more attracting ones.

This 2021 prediction for me is spot on...how do I change it?
I am December 15, 1978. This 2021 prediction is completely accurate for current life. I work way too much and don't get paid for all the overtime I've been working, I am also still at the bottom of pay even though my job duties are that of a higher level than my pay grade, and I am grossly under appreciated with the work that I do. I have college degrees in psychology (but that is not the field that I currently work in) and have always, my entire life, been very psychologically aware of my life and my surroundings. However, these past few years I have been losing control of my mental awareness and strength and my depression has overtaken me. I am drinking too much alcohol and smoking cigarettes again too much and am just lost in life recently, which is majorly affecting my two children. My love life is pretty much non existent because I tend to push everyone away, and my health is drastically declining (including lung/breathing problems and major insomnia). How do I fix myself? Or is my time on this earth done?

Hi Niki,
I think you should want the things you want and, believe that you should have them. You determine your purpose here. It sounds like something you always wanted to happen never did. Or it did, and it is not everything you dreamed it would be. It happens, but don’t forget that you have the power, not others, to design, to create and to experience life as you want it to be. The Zodiac helps us to understand ourselves, but the fire, the light , the passion and the Devine is inside of each and every one of us. We have immense power to make this life as we wish. Think, visualize and speak of where you want to go and have. When you reach for cigarettes, walk instead. When you reach for a drink, drink water and walk or do anything that keeps you moving. Then imagine better things. Spend time with the kids. It is NOT too late, in fact it is just beginning. If yesterday was not great, today is!
Answered by GEZA | Jan. 07, 2022 05:54

Yeah Very Good, mostly accurate on Spot. I'm Born September 8, 1978. I'm Virgo+Earth+Horse. Both together. As Horse eats the wheat of the hand of the maiden. I like mother Earth. Like Jesus or Saint Michael rides a white Horse (and conquers the Dragon), my horse is Golden and Earthly, the golden comes 8th day being on a Sunday in 2002 year of the horse. 8 Infinite Spirit that can't be broken. The Virgo is equal to Virgin Mary and Mother Earth, or Even teachings of Wing Chun from Ng Mui passed down from the lineage. The attribute I give my Horse is power of Love, heart. If Tiger is strength, and Dragon is Wisdom, the horse conquers above the Dragon with the Attribute of love because naturally it is Love being greater than wisdom, and is what the Earth Horse stands for to me, Heart is inner strength.
well my Love life has always been non existent, except for when I visited Brazil. Single my whole life. Waiting for that special someone. I work hard too much for family. I still walk that thin narrow path in life. Although I'm a Free Spirit, I would like to take that leap of faith and go for all my dreams. Year, 2022 video I like Steve Harvey's video ask and you will receive. So, now I see my life as a story of faith. First thing I said to God I see in 2002 of horse will be my birthright. Why I like like the film Spirit Stallion because it is a story of faith. I just got lo take that leap of faith.

Answered by Justin | May. 13, 2023 09:07

I am Jan 5th 1979, also a 'Horse' and I was once in the same boat as you are now.

Things will not change unless you change them. Your employer is taking advantage of you and using you for the free overtime. It's likely that your supervisor is accruing all the advantages of your unpaid hard work for him/herself, and throwing you "under the bus" in private conversations behind your back like my ex-boss (also my ex-father-in-law) did. Everything else you mention; alcohol, tobacco, no love life, etc...these are symptoms of your misplaced dedication to a lost cause. They could become problems on their own, but I suspect in your case these are not the root cause but rather symptoms of something deeper.

You need to leave your job and find the place you belong in and the place that will appreciate your hard work and dedication. The drinking and tobacco will decrease naturally when you find the natural high of doing what you were meant to do. Alcohol and tobacco are both artificial substitutions that stimulate the reward center of your brain, you turn to them because you are not receiving the rewarding dopamine you would otherwise get if you were working a job that is meaningful and satisfying. You have degrees in psychology so you likely understand this even better than I do. I have degrees in physics, and I was prevented from working in the field of my expertise also, but there are 'lateral' moves you can make to maximize the advantages of your education and feel like you are serving your purpose.

My advice is to leave your job. Find a new job where your dedication and determination is appreciated. The rest will likely flow naturally once you are where you ought to be.
