Sheep Zodiac Eminent Personalities
I was born 20 February 1958 (Piscean Dog) with I believe some traits of a Wood Snake. I understand that a sheep and dog is not a good match, however, something tells me that he is a good person? I just feel confused because another part of me holds back as he is too quiet and timid for me? I would be grateful for your honest advice, even if not favourable. Thank you very much. Jennifer
