Chinese Astrology: Chi Wei year, meaning Ram Running on the Mountain.
The Sixty-Year Cycle Chinese Calendar: Earthly Branch Ram and Heavenly Stem Earth.
If you need a friend you can depend on for help when your life is troubled, the Chinese horoscope advises you to find a Ram. Ram people are defined by their ability to sense the feelings of others. In fact, Rams often take on the emotions of those around them, making them upset when their friends are upset. In this way, they can achieve true empathy with others, and not just sympathy. Rams are valued confidants, and they truly care about others. A Ram will work hard to help you feel better if something bad has happened to you.
Rams are also very dreamy and creative. They have a hard time with regular, practical work, because they wait until inspiration strikes and aren't good and forcing themselves to work without that inspiration. Rams are likely to get involved in spiritual practices, and don't seem quite tethered to the practical physical realm as others are. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Ram are talented artistically, and can produce beautiful art pieces-when they feel inspired.
Rams also make wonderful homemakers. Since they are natural nurturers, Rams make ideal stay at home mothers or fathers. They rarely lose their patience with children and really put their all into raising them.
The creative eye of a Ram means that he or she will be able to decorate a home to instil a sense of calm and belonging-the home of a Ram always feels like a true home and not just a house. Of course, Rams often love expensive and luxurious materials and decorations, and they have a tendency to overspend, so someone has to keep a close eye on the family budget.
When a person born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Ram is tempered by the element of Earth, it affects them in a fairly dramatic way. Earth is a grounding element, and has the effect of making a person more practical minded. Since Rams usually have their heads in the clouds, this is a dramatic change for a Ram, indeed. Earth Rams are the most likely out of all the Rams to be able to keep a good job or work away at their own projects without outside prodding. These Rams are better at keeping a schedule or budget than other Rams are.
Most Rams are always seeing the world with the eye of an artist, but Earth Rams understand that other things come before art. Although Earth Rams are still sensitive, and need a confidence boost now and then, these Ram people can be quite successful. Earth Rams are not afraid of working hard to provide for their loved ones. Although Earth Rams work hard, they still have a gift for enjoying life. Earth Rams still have the innocent gullibility that is the hallmark of the Ram Chinese sign, and it is hard to take things too seriously around an Earth Ram person. Earth Rams are wonderful to have as friends or partners.
