The Chinese Astrology Sheep Personality
The most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac, those born in the Year of the Sheep (also known as the Year of the Ram or Goat) are often artistic, sensitive, sweet and charming.
The Sheep is said to be proud and a bossy animal. A person born in this year should be a good doctor. The goat is known for gentleness and kindness. They also worry.
Of all the signs, the Sheep symbolizes altruism and the female persona. They tend to be a gentle hearted person. What aggressiveness they have is likely to manifest as passive-aggressive behavior. They probably have a big soft spot for their little children and animals. They are likely to be fashionable and refined, preferring quiet, charming social settings such as a cozy little restaurant or an art museum. Speaking of art, there is a good chance they are an artist themselves, and an even better one that they appreciate the aesthetics of more than one of the performing and, or, visual arts. Finally, it must be said they are a romantic type. In addition to a propensity for dinner by candlelight, they also long for the pastoral. They like to spend time walking in the garden or driving through the peaceful countryside. And, they probably adore all the squirrels and other cute little animals they find along the way.
On the other hand, they are not that adventurous and will make sure those outings are to the most peaceful locations. They can be indecisive and vacillate between choices hoping they don’t have to make one when the choice is difficult. And, when things don’t go their way, or even just threaten not to go their way, they tend to become moody. This can result in pouting and makes them tense. They are also somewhat of a worrier, which adds to their edginess.
People born in the Year of Sheep are elegant and highly accomplished in the arts. They seem to be, at first glance, better off than those born in the other years of the zodiac. Sheep people are often shy, pessimistic, and puzzled about life. They are usually deeply religious, yet timid by nature. Sometimes clumsy in speech, they are always passionate about what they do and what they believe in. Sheep people never have to worry about having the best in life for their abilities make money for them, and they are able to enjoy the creature comforts that they like. Sheep people are wise, gentle, and compassionate. They are compatible with Rabbits, Pigs, and Horses. Except for the knack of always getting off on the wrong foot with people, the Sheep can be charming company. They are elegant and artistic but the first to complain about things. Put aside your pessimism and worry and try to be less dependent on material comforts. They would be best as an actor, gardener, or beachcomber. Sheep are the good Samaritans of the Chinese zodiac. They are gentle mannered and on the shy side. Being very sincere they are easily taken by a sob story. Sheep people are compassionate, understanding of others’ faults, and quick to forgive.
Sheep like to set their own hours and will not tolerate too much discipline. They are also very offended if they are criticized. They cannot work well under pressure and must be allowed to do things at their own speed. Sheep need somebody to discipline them, though, in order to utilize their talents. They usually find someone to look after and care for them.
Good fortune smiles upon the Sheep. They benefit from wills and inheritances. Even in the roughest of times, the Sheep always acquires the basic needs. Sheep get their own way without force or violence. They have that passive endurance that drives you mad. Eventually they wear you down with their pleas. You just can’t break them!
Sheep never come right out and discuss what’s bothering them. You pry it out of them bit by bit. When all else fails, yell at them, and bang things around. They should be impressed and might unfold all their secret woes; then, you can clear the air. Sheep are family people. They never forget anyone’s birthday, and you had better not forget theirs! Sheep worry, too. They want others to cheer them up and tell them everything will be okay.
Sheep overspend and should avoid dealing with money. They find it hard to be practical and would love a life of luxury and ease. Ugly things will depress Sheep. They hate to displease anyone especially their loved ones. They will edge around an issue rather than take a firm stand. Difficulties are a delicate issue with Sheep. They are too sensitive and often overreact. Reassure them often.
Romance is a part of the Sheep’s being. Moonlight and roses, soft music and candlelight will get them every time. They tend to view the world through rose-colored glasses. Sheep do not usually have to work hard. Good things just happen naturally. They need bright, airy surroundings and excel in creative fields. Appreciation of their talents make Sheep glow, and with encouragement, they can go far in life.
Shy by nature, Sheep are not the most practical of people and, although well-mannered, they may occasionally suffer from “foot-in-mouth disease” by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Still, with their considerable charm and innocence, Sheep never lack for protective friends and admirers.
Outwardly dreamy and starry-eyed, Sheep are inwardly anxious, insecure, and usually find day-to-day living difficult and puzzling. As such, they often take refuge in religion, astrology or the occult.
Sheep are not overly ambitious, but once they find work that makes use of their considerable talents, they are passionate about what they do. Typically surrounded by beautiful things, Sheep have an ardent love of creature comforts and are almost always elegantly dressed, but can become overly reliant on appearances.
