Year of the Wood Sheep 2015

2015 Year of the Wood Sheep (also called Goats)

sheep_yearThe year of the Sheep is a time for diplomacy, after the extremes of the Horse year in 2014. The Sheep correlates to the western astrological sign of Cancer.  The Goat comes 8th in the Chinese zodiac. Cancer is the sign of home and nurturing. You may find people around you more caring, kind and sensitive to your wants and needs. This is the year to work on developing an open heart and to accept love on all levels.

Traditionally the Year of the Wood Sheep, begins this year on February 19th at the last degree of Aquarius new moon. It is a time for personal harmony, tranquillity and creativity. But simultaneously it is a time of ups and downs in the global economy and in politics.

Sheep year is wonderful for you to express your creative side. This is a year for art, creativity and cultivation of beauty.  If you want to explore your creative talent, Sheep year is for you.  Arts will flourish and creativity will flow, but such refined beauty and elegance is expensive and debts may easily accrue.

If you look back on past Sheep years you will see that they are not always peaceful and with the looming threat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, it would not be surprising for another Gulf war to break out.

There have also been major natural disasters such as earthquake, droughts, floods, hurricanes, typhoons and storms. 2015 could bring severe weather changes, droughts and fires.

This Wood Sheep year will be a time for like-minded peoples to pull together.  Being one of “the good guys” will be encouraged. Bad guys won’t be popular and hypocrites will be flushed out. So will liars and cheaters.

Sheep are peace-loving animals. They are about compromise. Stormy weather may lie ahead, but you will come out stronger with more belief in yourself and those close to you.  If you are going to make the year of the Sheep a time of being money hungry, the road ahead could be a bumpy one.

The animal sign which could have the most challenges throughout the year will be the Ox.

Goats, Cats (Rabbit) and Pigs...it's your year to shine.
