Which kind of Zodiac Sheep are you?
Talented and determined, this confident Goat has a better sense of sense of self-belief than most Goats, and works to achieve his objectives with diligence, usually very capable of succeeding. Beneath this calm and assured front however, is a highly sensitive and vulnerable soul with a penchant for the arts and music, who craves security both financially and emotionally, sometimes turning possessive and over-protective of his loved-ones when this aspect of his personality is in fear of losing control.
This appealing Goaty likes things to stay the way the are, cooperating with others easily to keep the status quo. Popular with children and his friends, he is never without supporters, and often attracts people who want to look after and “mother’ him, much to his delight. Innately opportunistic, this goat is also prone to a persecution-complex, seeking those who can better his welfare, cater to his whims and let him have his way.
This kind-hearted and sentimental Goat has profound trust in those he believes in, and will do anything in his power to please humankind, even if it is to his detriment. A champion of stray animals, beggars and the less-fortunate, he shines most in looking after people and often allows others to take advantage of him. With high moral principles, his good deeds are rewarded by unexpected financial help and luck in a lot of his affairs.
Courageous and creative, this energetic Goat is most concerned with his personal comfort and indulges himself in creating a lifestyle which reeks of wealth and grandeur, of elaborate parties and social events – which he revels in. Consequently, he frequently finds himself in financial dilemmas because of his extravagant tastes and over spending, but he dislikes the humdrum of reality, and when pushed to accept it could turn gloomy and unpleasant – preferring to let his imagination and flights of fancy dictate his life.
More independent than the rest of the herd, this Goat’s loyalties lie with his family, taking his responsibilities of providing for them financially and emotionally seriously. Although more sensible when it comes to money, he is still a sheep, and therefore will not deny himself of the pleasures he deems as necessary even if from the outside it is sheer extravagance – and saving for that rainy day is not as important. Optimistic and helpful to those in need, he also doesn’t take criticism well, reacting with a over-defensive attitude.
