The Year of
the Sheep, Ram or Goat - Creative and Sincere!
Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on
lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the
Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather
than a month.
born in the years 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991,
2003, and 2015 celebrate the Year
of the Sheep, Ram or Goat
people born during a Year of the Ram or Sheep are said to exhibit that
animal’s attributes. They are sincere, sympathetic,
determined but peaceful, mild-mannered but sometimes pessimistic. They
seek security and stability, but can be very generous. They tend to be
artistic and creative.
Sheep are easy to spend time around and are have many close
friends. However, in love or friendship, they are at first wary of
others' motives and usually timid about revealing their true nature.
Gaining a Sheep's trust takes time, but once they have been won over,
they may become the most ardent of companions. As much as the Sheep can
improve another person's life, however, they are also protective about
who they let into their inner circle. Not just anyone can get to know
someone born under the sign of the Sheep
Rather, a person must prove
himself or herself steadily over time, through kind gestures and
loving support, until the Sheep finally sees that they are someone who
can be trusted.
Typically surrounded by beautiful things,
Sheep have a love of comfort and are almost always elegantly dressed,
but can become overly reliant on appearances. In fact, it might be fair
to say that many Sheep personalities learn to embrace their inner
fabulousness! Conversely, Sheep
people also have an innate affinity for
nature and natural settings, so they can also be deeply content when
getting their hands dirty messing about in the garden!
workplace, once they find a position that makes use of their
considerable talents, Sheep
are passionate about what they do and tend
to be successful. Because of their creativity, a Sheep personality may
be disorganized, but can usually enjoy great success as artists,
actors, gardeners, interior designers, childcare workers,
pediatricians, teachers or educators.
