It’s time to ram into the Chinese New Year, with a running start! The Chinese New Year is the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. The year 4713 begins on February 19, 2015. The celebration continues on until February 24th. Each year is represented by an animal, referred to as “The Chinese Zodiac.” There are 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac including: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar. This year is the year of the sheep! Wool you believe it?
Those born under the Sheep’s Years are often charming, sensitive, artistic, and sweet. For reference, some famous beings born in the Year of the Sheep include Jane Austen, Michelangelo, Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, Bruce Willis, and Barbara Walters. These people are usually gentle, polite, and sometimes indecisive. If you were born in 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, or 2015, your Chinese zodiac is the Sheep.
However, do not spend your time grazing in the grass! Your fortune for the year includes hard work. If you consistently work hard, then you will get smoothly through this year. Although many investment opportunities will come your way, a promotion is not in order for you. However, that’s no telling what’s to come in 2016! Promising career fields for this zodiac include actor, interior designer, teacher, musician, or editor.
If you focus and keep your eyes on the prize, then bad luck will not come your way. Just to make your life a little more harmonious, the Chinese art of furniture rearranging called Feng Shui might be in order for you! Your lucky colors include purple, brown, and red, so it’s time to shop for some new accent pillows!
It looks to me like much is in store for this Chinese New Year. The other zodiacs have mutton on the Year of the Sheep! Whether your sign is a sheep or another animal, it’s always a great gesture to help out the rams and lambs. Here’s to a new year that is everything but sheepish!
