Personality Traits:
People born under the year of the Goat/Sheep tend to take on the role of the "good Samaritan".  The Sheep is the most feminine sign of all of the Chinese animals.  Usually they are very good-natured, genuine, timid and bashful, which can sometimes lead to them being taken 'for a ride' by others.  Some of their other traits include: being overwhelmed by their emotions, a tendency to become somewhat negative, gloomy and introvert. They are natural born worriers who will always predict and expect the worst.  They especially loathe criticism and regulation and sometimes find it difficult to maintain an objective view on things.  However they are kindhearted, mild, understanding and very forgiving.  They would rather be in a huff than come to blows.  On the whole people tend to "care deeply" for them and they will always have the things that they require in life.  They have an enduring personality that prefers not to disclose troubles unless really forced to.  Sheep people deny themselves nothing and are "hopeless romantics".

The year of the Sheep: is one that will be a time for caring, bringing out creative talent, imagination and emotion, whilst remaining, calm, smooth and slow.  "Harmony with moderation" are the key words with a warning about the danger of negativity.
