What’s Your Sign?

Jean at her blog ‘Transforming Stress Into Personal Power’ has a new post which has inspired this post.

I do not believe in horrorscopes. I do not read them to see how my day or week or month or year will go. I do not believe that our future can be predicted by horrorscopes.

I however was quite intrigued when a friend from Hongkong sent me a link to some descriptions of me based on the Chinese horoscope system. According to that, I am a sheep and a water sheep at that. I share with you, extracts. I am sure that all water sheep will be happy to receive such descriptions, as I am. I hope that I am all that I am supposed to be.

Sheep simply want a bit of peace. They enjoy carrying on with life in their own quiet, individual way, content to be in the middle of it all rather than to be leading it. Sheep are quiet and calm people. They enjoy cultural things and focus much of their energy on artistic hobbies. Sheep are easygoing and relaxed, happy to be going with the flow.

Sheep are nurturers. They enjoy taking care of other people. Like their animal counterpart, Sheep people are pretty calm individuals. Their personalities are quiet, reserved and soothing. They like to be in the company of others but do not wish to be in the middle of everything. They like standing in the back, watching contently from the sidelines, as others dazzle the company. Sheep will generally do better than they are aware because they are so good at keeping the peace and accomplishing the tasks at hand.


Like their element, Water Sheep go with the flow of things, content to stroll through life like a Sunday evening walk. They are easy to get along with and live with and can make quite lovable roommates and companions. They enjoy the security of their homes and will generally plant their roots and stay in one place. They are well-spoken and witty, but lack self-confidence. They can pout when they don’t get their way.

(Except for the last two negatives, I think that the description is fairly accurate as far as I can read myself.)

Sheep truly enjoy being at home. They spend their time there doing arts and crafts, cooking and knitting. Sheep are most comfortable on their couches in the privacy of their homes, relaxed and tranquil. Their homes are as simple as they like to feel. They are elegant and timeless, and their homes reflect their artistic flair. The Sheep will go to any expense to be comfortable and to enjoy convenience.

Among many other reasonably accurate predictions of the sheep traits, another one gem is:


Kind, genuine and gentle, these Sheep display as much the power to give love as the need to get love. They can pressure themselves about being able to support their families, but always put family first.

How about you? Do you believe in horoscopes/predictions etc?
