Sunday the 22nd of February and ending Saturday the 28th of February
Aries Welcome to a different kind of New Year. It’s the year of your first cousin – the Wood Sheep! More harmony than a cantering pony: more ruminating than fodder. So let go of past pain to make way for the new ewe!
Taurus Why wait for your second cousin the Wood Sheep when you can range in your own paddock and find a quiet place to consolidate and contemplate more than the grass? You can count sheep if you want but then let them go elsewhere.
Gemini Is it Ground Hog Day? Not quite yet. But there are opportunities for inner transformation. What is the Wood Sheep whispering in your ear vocational Ground Hog dreams and the healing arts. Keep your sheep to yourself and make ready for your Ground Hog.
Cancer The New Year starts out a bit Bolshie and ends up more your style. Meanwhile back at the ranch you have stopped counting sheep and started wondering if there is more to sheep than meets the eye? Don’t let a wandering sheep lead you astray.
Leo Welcome to the year of relationships with more than yourself. You have much to offer the Sheep fraternity this year but you have to get their attention in a different way. You could appear to be like them and not try and eat them! That’s one suggestion.
Virgo Welcome to the year of getting closer to different personalities. If you don’t understand Sheep it’s not because you’re not trying or that they don’t like you. They have to know you to like you. Step into their paddock and introduce yourself.
Libra Mirror Mirror on the Wall, isn’t there a sheep/ram/goat within us all? Welcome Strangers are not simply nuggets of gold – they’re potentially the golden fleece for friendships of great warmth and nourishment: fine spun wool and calming conversation beckons.
Scorpio It’s time to leave that old myth behind that you are a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing. You share the same nature as the Sheep – loving kindness – you just show a different way of achieving a slightly different outcome. It’s time to hug Sheep – please do not eat them!
Sagittarius It’s time to seriously consider the serious side of sheep – which is that although they don’t reach your shoulder they’re seriously good company! You are learning pastoral care in an entirely new manner. Disciplined friendships can be friendly too.
Capricorn You are entirely at home in this agrarian year – whether it’s on the mountain side or lower down the steppes with your nearly first cousins the Sheep. Ruminate together. Share pasture and ideas. And don’t forget that all journeys require resting points.
Aquarius You can bring ideas forward – how about establishing a water race for your Sheep friends and share aquifers? There is a great deal to be said for harnessing your environmentally friendly ideas for the greater good (sheep!) in us all.
Pisces One Sheep, Two Sheep, Three Sheep…the Sheep of your imagination appear in different shapes and hues this year. Are you a Mouflon, Navajo Churro, Merino or New Zealand Halfbred? You can produce a Sheep for all occasions and then set them free.
