The other year of the sheep

The sheep is fortunate to be one of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals so it is an auspicious animal away from Daramalan too! Chinese astrology is based on traditional astronomy and calendars and a person’s destiny can be determined by the position of the sun, moon, major planets, comets, zodiac sign and the person’s time and date of birth.

The twelve year cycle of animal signs was built from observations of Jupiter’s orbit and in order they are rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and boar. Daramalan has a dog, two monkeys and a boar (pig) as semi permanent residents.

Sheep signs were born in 1979, 1991, 2003 and so on. Occupying the eighth position in the zodiac the sheep symbolises characteristics such as creativity, dependability, intelligence and calmness. They are comfortable alone and though also sociable they tend to stay on the edges of gatherings to observe. They are excellent caregivers and like the comforts of home where they can express their creativity.

Sheep at work don’t crave power but will work hard for the benefit of others. Next sheep year is 2015 so we will be expecting great things of that years new arrivals.
