A charming personality

Earth Horses are very generous and kind to other people, especially their friends and close people, those that they hold dear.

They never give up on someone they care about, not even when all seems lost. That’s when true friendships are tested, and when everything becomes clear.

Love & Relationships

Because they are very attractive and charming, they will have many relationships before finally settling down with the love of their life. However, once they do, they will become very devoted and loyal to their partner.

Men of this astrological sign will spend a lot of time trying to look nice and present their image in society, to attract the opposite sex, while women already have this flair and generally find it easier to succeed.
