Welcome to the first in a 3 Part Series all about Chinese Astrology by Psychic Arthur.
According to the Chinese Zodiac 2015 calendar, the Year of the Horse heads out to pasture as we flock together for the Year of the Sheep which begins today, February 19, 2015. The Year of the Sheep is also often referred to as the Year of the Goat or The Ram, so if you see that somewhere else, please realize it is the same thing.
Wooden Sheep? Green Sheep?
According to the Chinese Astrology Calendar, we are actually in the Year of the Wooden Sheep. Since wood is related to trees and green plants, it’s also called the Year of the Green Sheep. Best of all, out of the five elements, wood is a very lucky element and green is a very lucky color!
And even better? Out of the 12 Chinese Zodiac signs, the Sheep is the eighth zodiac sign – and the number “8” is considered to be a very lucky number, symbolizing wisdom, fortune and prosperity.
The Sheep (or Goat or Ram) is kind, tender and sympathetic. It stands for peace, tranquility and harmonious co-existence. The Sheep is the symbol of creativity and elegance.
What to Expect in The Chinese Year of the Sheep
After a turbulent Year of the Horse, this year will seem a bit calmer, as well as a year for reflection and acknowledging the accomplishments of others. This will also be a year for getting back to the basics and using our intuitive knowledge to find solutions to many problems plaguing the world today.
While the threat of terror and chaos has swelled around the world over the past several years, The Year of the Sheep can help wisdom prevail, allowing for peaceful solutions and/or compromises. It may not eliminate the threats of aggression, but it can help to keep things constrained with smart strategy and common sense. At the same time, economic and political situations can start to stabilize.
The Year of the Sheep is also a time for the whole of humanity to have a chance at changing the world for the better.
