Welcome Year of the Wood Sheep! This Sheep (or Goat) is noted for friendship, intimacy, family, forgiveness, resilience, and a calm charm driven by focused determination. The Sheep/Goat is built to survive and THRIVE! From Lillian Pearl Bridges: "It is considered a good year for women and families and for all Yin actions that include such things as kindness, caring and creativity." From Molly Hall: "The Sheep Year is a remedy for mania, as we take our time, eat slow food, come to our senses, and disengage from what numbs us from our emotions. There can be a revival of the arts, and a special focus in what's beautiful. This is a time to nurture close friendships and family." As an Earth Sheep myself, I can really get baa-hind this!
