2015 is the year of the Wooden Sheep in Chinese astrology. The wood of tree is connected to the color green, so we are in the year of the Green Wooden Sheep. This is the year to reap what you sow and to harvest the fruit of your labor from the past two years. As 2013 was the year of the snake and 2014 was the year of the horse, 2015 is basically the maintaining heat resulting from Snake (sun heat reaching the sky) and Horse (sun heat reaching the earth).
It is irrelevant if you have been prosperous in the past years or not, 2015 is the turning point. The heat contained in the earth, in your roots, will serve you, this is the year to follow your passions, believe, find a way to succeed. “Sheep contains Female Earth which helps to create something from nothing” (Chinese Fortune Calendar, 1999). 2015 is the year of the Green Wooden Sheep which contains wood energy, heat, and the feminine. These elements are connected to grass, leaves, vine, sprout, bushes and shrubs which all need sunshine, earth and water to grow leaves from their tough branches.
So be your own sunshine, water, and earth that nourishes the shrubbery of your existence. For what else is this life than the moments of which we spend our time.
It is precious, so treat it that way.
