The Year 2015 is the 4712th Chinese “Wooden Sheep” year.
The first day of the 2015 Chinese New Year is on February 19, 2015[…]
Sheep is one of Chinese lucky animals. Sheep doesn’t have to do the farm work. Instead, all the farmland jobs go to the Ox. Therefore, Ox doesn’t like Sheep. Sheep have freedom to look for any kind of grasses. They never worry about running out of grass. They have mild personality and are friendly to human. Chinese treat Sheep as an auspicious animal.
In the Chinese New Year of Sheep, Chinese always mention San-Yang-Kai-Tai , which means “Three Goats Start Fortune”. –chinesfortunecalendar.com
We are watchful of U.S., Russia, China relations, as China exerts international leadership role, with the Renminbi gaining world reserve currency status alongside the U.S. Dollar.
The expected policy enforcements and turbulent financial system may be very challenging…
We encourage the reader to embrace personal sovereignty, innate creativity, and increased awareness.
Identifying and assisting communities to implement alternatives (such as complementary currencies and community farms) is a worthy effort.
We wish you good health and prosperity.
According to Statistics New Zealand’s most recent agricultural production statistics, my homeland had an estimated 31.1 million sheep in 2011 and 4.42 million people. You’d think we’d be a lot happier than we actually are 😉 Happy new year to you too, Ron.
Thank you Alan, and Happy New Year To you too.
I think it is very interesting that the Chinese will call the new year the sheep or goat, and the sheeple of people have a rude awakening as we can expect a type of 2008 financial crisis part two by the later half of year 2015. Forecasters are alerting of market volatility and bankruptcies, while institutions have plans to implement policy reforms. Namely OPEC, G20, IMF, and BRICS.
Also Australia, New Zealand and most member nations of the U.N. have adopted the new policies that call for China’s RMB currency to be freely traded as a world reserve currency alongside the USDollar and Euro.
Curious, how the horned goat looks like Baphomet…
