Sheep people are elegant, charming, artistic, gifted and fond of nature.
People born under this sign are also the most creative. They are also very
delicate, their good manners and charms always bring many admirers and
Sheeps are insecure. They need to feel loved and protected. They are easily drawn into complex predicaments. This being, so, they usually shy from confrontation, pull back when faced with heavy decision-making and blatantly refuse to take an unpopular stand in a conflict.
Sheep people are dreamers, sometimes, they are pessimistic, hesitant and over-anxious worriers! They can be lazy sometimes. If Sheeps have any choices, they would definitely choose to marry a wealthy person and sit back for the rest of the lives. Also, they are obsessed with their appearance. That, play an enormous part in their sense of personal stability. If they don't look their best, they may be afraid to go out the door to pick up the Sunday papers.
Due to their indecisive nature, Sheeps like to study the esoteric to know more about the unknown. They enjoy reading books about horoscope and fortune-telling. Therefore, it will not be unusual to find Sheeps working as astrologers or fortune-tellers.
Disorganized as they are , business is definitely not the strength in a Sheep. Instead, the Sheep will make a good craftsman or artist or writer and can confidently take up any career demanding artistic talents and creativities.
Sheep people are very romantic sensitive, sweet and darling. In relationship, they could be sometimes a little bit bossy and lazy, but with their gentle and caring nature, it will be hard to resist Sheep people.
Socially, domestically and politically, people belonging to the Sheep category are the least likely to make waves. They respect order
and pay attention to rules and regulations that are laid down by laws and by society. Whether it is because Sheeps are such nice and
pleasant people or whether it is because they are born under a lucky star, fortune seems to favor them. It is quite possible that
because they are so mild, unassuming and whimsical, they would not be capable of making their fortune in life by their own efforts.
Yet many seem one way or another to attract success and money whether through legacies, patronage or popular acceptance via
the mass media. Consequently, this popularity and success makes for an easy life where Sheeps are concerned.
Endowed with innate intelligence and artistic talent, the Sheep will fare well in business. Sheeps are good-natured and altruistic. However, their successes are often limited to money; in family matters they may flounder. They can be a bit too undisciplined and at times show a morose, misanthropic side. Although Sheeps prefer an uncomplicated, easy life, free of conflict or problems, if danger appears, especially when it is a matter of saving their own life or that of others, Sheeps are extremely combative and put up a ferocious battle. Life's circumstances influence the Sheep's actions and disclose startling contrasts in their seemingly impassive natures. They leave decision-making to others, but cannot be forced to follow a path they do not like. Their lack of self control and the mysterious delays which beset their lives make people lose patience with them easily. And though they can make themselves agreeable when they want to, more often Sheeps take advantage of others, sometimes even living entirely at their expense.
Sheeps are frequently religious, but whatever religion it is, it will only be praticed to the point where it interfers with their comfort and everyday routine. They are not prepared to put themselves out for it, although Sheeps are often drawn to the fantastic, the supernatural, occultism and the reading of horoscopes.
Generally, those born in the Year of the Sheep are attracted to the Arts and many are highly creative. But they are practical too, so that for them Art must also be functional and, conversely, everyday functional objects must also reflect inherent beauty. Couple their talents to their manual dexterity and it is not difficult to see why so many Sheep-born people are gifted craftsmen and women. With their strong artistic inclinations, it is not surprising that Sheep-folk have a keen eye for beauty and that they simply adore exquisite things. Just as psychologically they need peace and harmony, so physically they need to be surrounded by beauty both in their living and working environment. Without pleasant or conducive surroundings these people could so easily become depressed and dispirited.
Thanks to others, the Sheep will generally land on his feet. So great is his talent for knocking on the right door, he will have no problems with what the Japanese call I-Shoku-Ju, the life of the senses. If you have a nice country home full of good things and good conversation, frequented by artists, don't ever let a Sheep through the door -- with his love of creature comforts, you may never be able to get rid of him!
The second phase of the Sheep's life will be tempestuous romantically, but there will be a lot of luck in the other two phases.
The Home-Loving Sheep
Romantic problems are often frequent in the life of the Sheep and because of this he may experience emotional agitation. In matters of Love, it is the Sheep's heart which rules its head. These people work best as part of a team, so a secure, stable and loving relationship is essential for their emotional well-being. Perhaps more than any other sign, Sheeps are home-lovers and are tailor-made for marriage and family life. Next to love and security, they crave peace and harmony, consequently they will bend over backwards within their relationships to keep things running smoothly. As they hate discord of any kind their partners shouldn't ever expect them to get embroiled in an argument for these people will simply retreat into silence. As lovers they can be clingy and dependent. They like to associate with others stronger than themselves. Highly sensual, they adore physical contact; however, despite all their need for tranquility, partners of Sheeps should note that these people want what they want and will all too often wear down opposition with protestations in order to get their own way.
Sheep women dream of marriage with a rich man, an affaire with a generous boyfriend, or a liaison with some influential patron. Failing this, she will be happy living at home with wealthy parents. She is the stuff of which are made courtesans, prostitutes, management consultants, public relations officers and other parasites. She is also the stuff of which great artists and writers are made. Everything depends on her luck and the influences at work in her life.
Sheeps would be especially happy with the Rabbit, the Boar or the Horse, yet they are capable of living with practically all the signs. However, the Dragon and the Snake consider Sheeps too passive for their likes. The Ox has no patience with the Sheep. In love or business, a union between the Sheep and the Dog is destined to fail as they are both too pessimistic.
