Chinese Astrology is one of the oldest types of astrology. It possesses 12 animal signs that correspond to a lunar year, and five elements-earth, water, fire, wood, and metal-`for each sign. Depending on the year, one of the five elements may become more prominent than the others. The soft-spoken people will be given a louder voice in 2015, it being the Year of the Wood Sheep. The sheep will begin their reign on the 19th of February, on the day of the Chinese New Year.
Although also known as the Ram or Goat, the Sheep is the most feminine among the 12 animal signs. Considered by the Chinese as harbingers of peace, Sheep are gentle, compassionate people born under the sign of love, beauty, and art. They are family-oriented and only react to conflict in an effort to bring about peace and harmony. Their love of the good life is the root of their love of peace; they realize that peace is a necessity in order to enjoy the good things in life.
The Sheeps' love of all things beautiful makes them ideal performers and artists because they like to exhibit beauty as well. Unabashed and always willing to be the center of attention, they thrive when all eyes are on them. As proof of this penchant for showmanship, most sheep go out to make a name for themselves. Some famous examples include Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Matt LeBlanc, even historic figures such as Mark Twain and Michelangelo.
The Year of the Wood Sheep promises smooth sailing for all, based on forecasted astrological events. Quality of life for most of the population will continue to improve as global economy and politics begin to stabilize. The year 2015 symbolizes a new era that everyone has been waiting for. It brings with it positive energy, which makes it a crucial year for people all over the world looking forward to a brighter future.
