Sheep personality traits The most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac, those born in the Year of the Sheep (also known as the Year of the Ram or Goat) are often artistic, sensitive, sweet and charming.
Shy by nature, Sheep are not the most practical of people and, although well-mannered, they may occasionally suffer from "hoof-in-mouth disease" by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Still, with their considerable charm and innocence, Sheep never lack for protective friends and admirers. This is especially so among family members, to whom they are strongly attached.
In fact, Sheep are traditionally paired with the Western zodiac sign of Cancer, who are also never happier than being at home in familiar surroundings with the people they love.
Outwardly dreamy and starry-eyed as young adults, Sheep can be inwardly anxious, insecure, and usually find day-to-day living difficult and puzzling. As such, they often take refuge in religion, astrology or the occult.
In love or friendship, they are at first wary of others' motives and usually timid about revealing their true natures. Gaining a Sheep's trust takes time, but once they have been won over, they may become the most ardent of companions.
Typically surrounded by beautiful things, Sheep have a love of creature comforts and are almost always
elegantly dressed, but can become overly reliant on appearances. Conversely, Sheep people also have an innate affinity for natural settings and are also deeply content
when getting their hands dirty messing about in the garden!
In the workplace, Sheep are not overly ambitious, but once they find a position that makes use of their considerable talents, they are passionate about what they do.
In business, Sheep tend to be highly disorganized, but they usually enjoy great success as artists, actors, gardeners, interior designers, daycare workers, pediatricians or grade school teachers.
