Fortune Foretelling in 2015
It is their order to encounter the Year of Birth (Benming Nian), a year to offend “Taisui’, the god in charge of people’s fortune. In 2015, their fortune in all aspects will fluctuate. In career, there won’t be a promotion or salary rise. Only if they stick with their current job and work hard, will they smoothly get through the year. In wealth, they should be very cautious about any investment, or there will be a loss. In relationships, they are suggested to be tolerant of their family, friends and colleagues to avoid any conflict.

Career: They may encounter some road blocks in career in 2015, especially in March, June, September and December. In these months, their emotions will be fluctuant, so it is likely that they will argue with colleagues. In comparison, their fortune in career gets better in February, July and August. As long as they persist in working hard, they will gain much in the coming year. At any rate, no promotion will fall upon them in 2015.

Wealth: The financial fortune of sheep people will be just so-so. They should reduce daily expenses, or it will be hard to make ends meet. It is not a good idea to lend money to others. The investment in stocks, bonds and real estate should be stopped. People who are living in a rental house should keep doing this. Don’t buy a new house or move. Setting a fish tank in the west or north of the house may increase their fortune in wealth. 

Relationships: Sheep people can easily lose their temper in 2015. As a result, couples and lovers may argue. They should communicate with each other to solve the problem to avoid breaking up. Also this is not a good year to get married. Single males may get involved in a relationship, and females will still expect to get back their former love.

Health: They should keep away from sharp tools and weapons such as knifes, swords, saws and scissors, because they may easily get injured this year. In daily life, they should play sports and avoid eating too much greasy food. Sheep born in 1943 and 1979 need to be careful in driving and doing sports, especially in June and December.

Study: Sheep students will hardly be able to concentrate on study this year. They should adjust their emotions to focus on study. Some students’ study may be affected by family problems, so parents should pay attention to their behavior and try to be attentive to their children. Moreover, children may get infected some illness, which will influence their study.

Fortune Telling in 2014
Sheep people have very good fortune in all aspects: they will have good opportunities to show their talents in career; relationships with leaders, colleagues and friends will be harmonious and income may climb up. They will have a chance to be promoted by the boss or be helped by seniors. Though, they should never be arrogant, but make constant progress step by step.

Career: They enjoy good fortune in career. Although there will be stress from competition, they will be strong enough to get through that at last. At the same time, they gain more experience. If there are targets in mind, 2014 is a good year to achieve them all. In the very beginning of the year, if they work hard and make constant progress, they may be promoted within the year. Businesspeople will be supported by their Lucky Star (a person bringing them good fortune), so every amount of investment will be smooth. However, for influential case, they’d better deal with themselves in case of being cheated to have a loss. 

Wealth: Generally, their financial fortune will go well. Working class people may gain more than usual from part-time job, but they should not spend too much time on part-time job. Otherwise, they will take risk of losing the present job. Business people will gain great profits if making a proper investment according to the changes of market. Besides, all sheep people are advised not to be greedy! No speculation will ever bring profits in 2014!

Relationships: Singles are expected to meet their love in the year. If the seniors and friends are willing to be their matchmaker, they will settle down sooner. Once the loving one appears, they are suggested to be active to speak your feelings out. Husband and wife will lead a happy life and their relationship will be full of rapport and harmony. In spite of this, they should be concerned for each other in case of extramarital affair. 

Health: For those who suffer certain diseases, they are expected to recover this year. As sheep people may attend frequent banquets, they should have a balance diet and drinking should be controlled in case of the diseases in liver and gall. They will easily feel lonely. Accordingly, the negative emotion will bring bad effect on their health. Thus they are suggested to adjust all emotions. Besides, stomach disease may occur as well.
