Of all the animals represented in Chinese Astrology the Sheep is probably the most easygoing creature of the 12. Those people born an Aquarian Sheep, once every 5 years, will benefit from the gift of this lovely nature and the associated intensified nurturing skills that come with it. These personality types have all the best characteristics of any caring profession and make wonderful parents. The influence of the Sheep brings calm and quiet to the constantly bubbling Aquarian mind, creating equilibrium. This allows the Aquarian to think more deeply about others and their well-being. Instead of being a little selfish, as Aquarius is prone to be, these personalities can be extremely caring.
The Aquarian Sheep personality is oozing with patience, and this is the main area of their character affected by birth in these particular Chinese years. Typical Aquarians are not known for their composure, but those born during a Sheep year are made exceptions. The level of eccentricity is also slightly higher, so Aquarian Sheep tend to be more sensitive than other people. These personalities are good at keeping the peace and calming situations down with their friendly, soothing manners. They crave a peaceful environment, and although they like the company, the Aquarian Sheep will also feel the need for solitude every now and then.
These people are shy to those they do not know well at first, but soon relax as friendships develop. The permissive Aquarian Sheep is able to converse with many different kinds of people and are skilled communicators. These characters are rarely bored or idle unless they choose to be. These people adore spending money, but they do not value possessions above people and are often very generous. The life ambitions of the Aquarian Sheep are not aimed too high; he or she is quite content to just go with the general flow.
Those seeking a partner who is more flexible and understanding than most other Aquarians will do well to search specifically for an Aquarian Sheep. These individuals born in the eighth cycle of the Chinese astrological ideology have all the intellect of Aquarius without so much of the fierce independence. These personalities do not have such an aversion to relying on others, and do not find it too difficult to ask for help when they may need it. They prefer to work in unison with others for the sake of a quiet life. This does not mean that they can be manipulated, but simply that they like to make their life as easy as possible.
The carefree Aquarian Sheep is happiest when he is helping others in any capacity. He is not happy to be treated unfairly, or less respectfully than he has treated others. These people are easily upset by any uncaring attitude and take great offense to ingratitude. Their weakness is that they expect everyone to have the same consideration for others that they possess. As they get older, Aquarian Sheep learn to accept that we are all different and that is what makes us so interesting.
