He likes to keep his options open, and is a firm believer in “going with the flow,” or seizing an opportunity only when it arises.

Romantically the wood Rat may seem as dull as his name suggests.

To those he loves he is extremely loyal, and lives to satisfy their every need.

Playing by the rules is not always a priority for the Metal Horse, and this makes him a difficult opponent. He’s daring and fierce as well, and will retaliate without hesitation.

By abandoning diplomacy in the heat of the moment, any goodwill will be destroyed making an amicable settlement impossible. Rein that Metal Horse in!

Chinese Zodiac Signs – Metal Sheep

In order to protect their sensitive and delicate nature, Metal Sheep often project a toughness that’s only surface deep. Relatives and close friends know this, so are not bothered by it, but strangers may misjudge them as being a bit gruff. Often led by their heart rather than their head, Metal Sheep frequently treat others according to how they’re feeling at the time rather than how they should be treated. Sometimes overprotective and vulnerable, they expect the world to revolve around them and their partners.

Metal Sheep are insecure in relationships, but can cherish them to a fault. They are self-sacrificing and will do anything for their partners, so must guard against being taken advantage of. They are instinctive in business matters, and if you go into business with a Metal Sheep you won’t regret it, as long as you take the lead. Once assured of by a strong backer, their talents will thrive, bringing success and prosperity to all involved.
