I was born in 1943 and so my Chinese zodiac sign is Water Sheep.
It breaks my heart to read this rather depressing news item in the New York Times. I quote what depresses me from it.
“Sheep are meek creatures, raised for nothing more than slaughter. Babies born in the Year of the Sheep, therefore, will grow up to be followers rather than leaders, according to some superstitions. The children are destined for heartbreak and failed marriages, and will be unlucky in business, many Chinese believe. One popular folk saying holds that only one out of 10 people born in the Year of the Sheep finds happiness.”
