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, Sheep personality makes them 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. They will get better achievements when cooperating with others.


Moderate prosperity, shopping less


Thanks to the favor of fortune, Sheep people seldom experience economic constraints. Though they are not millionaires or billionaires, they can enjoy a fairly well-off life when they are young. They are fond of buying luxury goods, which may result in a short-term tight budget. Therefore, they should learn to refrain themselves from the desire for shopping. If they can arrange their money well and be devoted to career, they will make a big difference sooner or later. 

Love and Relationships

Passive, irresponsible, romantic


People with Chinese zodiac Sheep are a little bit shy and tender, and they like to depend on others, so they are in a passive position when dating with others. Due to their lack of will-power, they are not very responsible and are open to temptations. They long for romance and focus on spiritual enjoyment. Due to the Sheep zodiac personality, people born with this sign are very attractive, but sort of fragile. If they get rejected by their lovers, they may be destroyed immediately.

Best Matches: Horse, Rabbit, Pig

They are sensitive to unclean food and air. Their health condition is readily affected by changes in weather, so they are susceptible to colds.
