The Year of the Fire Horse

The Slavs in ancient times, our ancestors, had their own horoscope, which was based on the totem of animals, on animal characteristics in relation to human traits. It was believed that each animal, bird or fish had its own period of influence and reign for years and months, and a person born in one or another period of the year and month corresponded to the characteristics of those animal species .  Thus a totemic calendar of animals was compiled according to which the human traits were determined ,  it was predicted what the coming year or month would be like and  foretold the future.

Slavs counted in the calendar 16 years instead of the usual 12 years, and the new year began on the day of the spring equinox on March 21.
