Sheep - Personality and Characteristics

Sheep / Goat

Soft-Hearted, upright, elegant

Sheep is a meek animal. They are usually very quiet and gentle, holding themselves aloof from the world. In a herd, all the sheep tend to listen to their leaders and show esteem to them. Because of the obedient character, sheep are among the most popular animals beloved by mankind. The fates curve of people born in the Year of Sheep / Goat / Ram exhibits an overall slightly ascending trend, which implies they will finally achieve success late in life. However, if they can come across brilliant leaders or people who appreciate their talents, they will distinguish themselves when young. 


Hardworking, persistent, thrift


With low profile, people born in the Year of the Sheep are very mild, diligent, and practical. They don’t care about what others judge and just do the things they deem right. They show filial obedience to their parents. They are reliable partners to cooperate with, as they are considerate and prudent. They do not squander money on flashy or unpractical articles and have the habit of saving money. They are not very tall and strong, but are very persistent. Once they obtain the favor of their leaders, their genius will be presented to the highest degree. 


Indecisive, timid, vain


To some extent, they are pessimists. Sometimes, they simply do things with the guidance of destiny. They love to be attended and flattered. The compliments from their friends and partners may please them a lot. When it comes to love, they are shy and dare not express their feelings to the people they have a crush on. However, if they want to give up the negative personality traits, those shortcomings can be totally overcome as long as they have the strong will. 


Creative, brilliant tastes in art


They present an elegant manner and impartial characteristic and are capable of doing any work. Endowed with creativity and the talent for art, they have admirable tastes in music. If they can control themselves and not get too addicted to music, they will surely stand out from the others in art industry. They also possess prominent gifts for health care professions and charitable causes. However, people with Chinese zodiac Sheep sign do not like to work by themselves.

Passive, irresponsible, romantic
