On this day, the Chinese will welcome the Year of the Sheep, also interpreted as Year of the Goat and Ram, as 4713th Chinese Year begins. So what’s in store for everyone in the Year of the Sheep/Goat. Read on to find out about it.

Chinese follow what is called Lunar calendar which consists of 12 animals symobolising the zodiacs: rat, cow, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, chicken, dog and pig. Each animal has five associated elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. It is the year of eighth sign, Wood Goat/Sheep.

Those who are born under this sign are born in the years 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015. The next time the year of Goat/ Sheep will be celebrated in 2027. These people are said to be creative, charming, intelligent and someone who has a great sense of expression. They are extremely gentle and caring. Steve Jobs and Thomas Edison are popular personalities born under this sign.

A lot of people are eager to know what the Year of the Sheep/ Goat means to them. According to Feng Shui expert Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui, this year will present immense opportunity to everyone “to make money, achieve success and attain their goals.”

Speaking at a seminar on Jan. 11, Lillian Too revealed that it is a “well-balanced” year because of the “presence of all five elements”--metal, wood, water, fire and earth. However, the first half of the new Lunar Year will be a time of conflict, but it will last for a very short period of time. She explained that things will take a positive turn in the latter part of the 2015 and relationships will improve.

According to her, it is a good year for lawyers and the second half of the year is good for investors and stock market. As for those looking forward to open a business, they must begin their venture in the mid of the year.

Lillian Too, who is an MBA from Harvard University, advised women to invest in jewels and gold. For travellers, the Feng Shui expert suggests to avoid travelling in Europe and Middle East. Further, she asks everyone to wear the colour red, which will serve as a “Feng Shui cure.” Click here to read your full horoscope for the Year of the Wood Sheep 2015.

According to Richmond Review, Sherman Tai predicts it is “a year of obstacles and extremes, with a lot of disturbances.” He suggests this year, the gap between the economic classes will widen with rich becoming richer and poor becoming poorer.
