Say goodbye to the soon departing Wood Horse. It pays to be careful when you’re near the rear end of a horse, but now that we are past the last showy clash of the Horse year and the Rat month it feels like we are clear of the hooves. Time to say hello to the Wood Sheep. What’s going to happen?
Even though it’s a bit long, this video might give some background on what’s about to go down.No share or id values provided for youtube shortcode.
The video illustrates the relationship of the Chinese Zodiac animals Horse and Sheep. The glamorously headstrong horses gallop around looking looking important and fast while the sheep simply follow their lead or stare at them from the safety of their herd. Just as there is no I in team there is no I in Sheep. The sheep will do what the horse wants but is wise not to get too close to the horses. The horses don’t like it. You should just sit back and admire them.
One of the common disagreements about the coming year is whether to call 2015 the year of the Sheep or the year of the Goat. I’m going with the Sheep moniker because I really hope this will be a year of people looking to protect and take care of each other. Sheep power comes through their relationship to each other – they group together and follow. They lose power when they are not together. You’ve probably heard the expression “culled from the herd”. This innate stick-together quality of sheep is explained by the Selfish herd theory. This is what selfish herd behavior looks like. The blue dot is a predator, the red dots are the sheep.No share or id values provided for youtube shortcode.
In contrast to the behavior of sheep, goats seem to gather together for the purpose of creating chaos – they are aggressive and destructive. My interpretation of the goat vs. sheep debate is that you can’t really have the yin (sheep) without the yang (goat). I think we will see both types of groups this year; those who join forces to make peace and progress, and those who band together to make war and destruction. If there’s any year to team up it’s got to be 2015. Be sure to know exactly what you’re signing up for before you commit.
But enough of my musings. You’re here to read the forecasts from the experts. I may add other forecasts as they come out so you may want to check back later.
I wish you the best of luck in 2015!
