Sign of the Ram
The Chinese calendar is divided not by numerical years, as is in the Western concept of time, but in a 12-year cycle of animal signs, which continually repeat themselves. According to Chinese legend, these twelve signs are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram (Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar (Pig).
In Chinese folklore, traits and characteristics similar to the Zodiac horoscope have developed around each of these annual animal signs -- some of which are more desirable than others. Here is a look at the qualities of each of them.

Sign of the Ram
Like the simple, placid sheep in the pasture, people born under the Year of the Ram simply want to be left alone to live their lives in peace and quiet. They are quiet and calm, avoiding drama at every turn. These relaxed people are happy to go with the flow and remiss to create a stir -- whether at work or at home. While being easy-going is a plus, avoiding conflict at all costs can be a real minus -- especially when a Ram, also known as a Sheep, or someone a Ram loves is not being treated right. The Ram will struggle and ultimately fail to stand up to anyone.
