Filipinos, in one way or another, often based their fortunes on the forecast of feng shui experts. For most part, they used it as a guide on how to live their life (avoiding negative vibes, as possible).

Celebrating Chinese New Year 2014

I was born in 1991. In Chinese calendar, I fall on the year of the sheep. Like most Filipinos, every new year, I read forecast relating the year I was born. So here, let me share to you the fortune of the “Sheep” people, according to Travel China Guide .

year of the sheep

The sheep (or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. As it is white, people describe delicate and precious white jade to be ‘suet jade’. Thus it is close to the meaning of good things.

People under the sign of the sheep are tender, polite, filial, clever, and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty, faith in a certain religion and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. Women born in this year are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation. They are kind in heart and commonly have symmetrical figures and features.

Sheep year people are often worriers who are shy, pessimistic, moody, indecisive, over-sensitive, week-willed and puzzled about life. They are easily inclined to be deeply religious. They are timid in nature and like to be looked after by others. They like flattery, compliment and suggestions from friends. They do not dare to express their love openly and usually have interests in strange theories.

Fortune Foretelling in 2014

Overview: Sheep people have very good fortune in all aspects: they will have good opportunities to show their talents in career; relationships with leaders, colleagues and friends will be harmonious and income may climb up. They will have a chance to be promoted by the boss or be helped by seniors. Though, they should never be arrogant, but make constant progress step by step.


They enjoy good fortune in career. Although there will be stress from competition, they will be strong enough to get through that at last. At the same time, they gain more experience. If there are targets in mind, 2014 is a good year to achieve them all. In the very beginning of the year, if they work hard and make constant progress, they may be promoted within the year. Business people will be supported by their Lucky Star (a person bringing them good fortune), so every amount of investment will be smooth. However, for influential case, they’d better deal with themselves in case of being cheated to have a loss.


Generally, their financial fortune will go well. Working class people may gain more than usual from part-time job, but they should not spend too much time on part-time job. Otherwise, they will take risk of losing the present job. Business people will gain great profits if making a proper investment according to the changes of market. Besides, all sheep people are advised not to be greedy! No speculation will ever bring profits in 2014!

Singles are expected to meet their love in the year. If the seniors and friends are willing to be their matchmaker, they will settle down sooner. Once the loving one appears, they are suggested to be active to speak your feelings out. Husband and wife will lead a happy life and their relationship will be full of rapport and harmony. In spite of this, they should be concerned for each other in case of extramarital affair.


For those who suffer certain diseases, they are expected to recover this year. As sheep people may attend frequent banquets, they should have a balance diet and drinking should be controlled in case of the diseases in liver and gall. They will easily feel lonely. Accordingly, the negative emotion will bring bad effect on their health. Thus they are suggested to adjust all emotions. Besides, stomach disease may occur as well.


Let me repeat: these are just predictions (some collective advice given by those who knows better about Chinese traditions and habits) . Still, it is in our hands if we will allow ourselves to use it as a guide. Because at the end of the day, what we do is what happens. We choose the path we take. What is important is to let God guide our life. A better life is something we do with both eyes open, something that makes us happy, and something that honors Him above all. 🙂
