The Wooden Tups? Wood Sheep daily Chinese horoscope
Although Tup can mean many things, its original use meant a Ram and that’s appropriate as today is a Wooden Ram or Sheep day. It’s reminiscent of “The Woodentops”, a classic BBC television programme for children that was part of the “Watch with Mother” series and in a strange kind of way, that’s also applicable.
Why? Well today's Sheep clashes with the month sign in what’s known as a “month break” and under this influence it’s usually best to let someone else make the decisions and allow yourself to be looked after by them. (A bit like watch with mother).
However, if you find it difficult to surrender the “remote control” so to speak, the Chinese almanac suggests only taking things apart or building a fence; presumably so a Ram can be tethered to it overnight.
To see how your sign will be affected, read on through this dedicated web page and normal service will be restored tomorrow. Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Annual zodiac tendencies
In general terms the Sheep will be at the centre of attention today and may find it difficult "keeping all the balls in the air". In which case the fire element colours (warm tones) will make you feel better and cope more easily. The Ox sign is clashed today and they may have a more stressful time due to unexpected changes. Also Dog signs should double check everything as they may have to rethink current plans.
As Sheep or goat is compatible with the annual sign of Horse, today should be favourable. Although owing to the controlling or crushing nature between Yin Wood (stem) and the earth element of the Sheep it is only good for certain activities, such as: asking for blessings, taking a course, having a haircut, building / refurbishment, capturing and fixing nets.
The Chinese animal signs of Pig and Rat feel powerful and ambitious and should they become pressurised metal element colours of white and grey will balance their qi. Meanwhile, Rabbit and Tiger zodiac signs are well supported and also have wealth opportunities. Those with Snake and Horse in their Chinese horoscopes are more relaxed and can easily develop their ideas. Whilst Metal signs of Monkey and Rooster will be vibrant and full of energy it is also good time for the Monkey to seek advice.
Success; but can’t see the wool for the trees?
Excuse the pun, but what title would you derive if you had to put Sheep and Wood together? Being also a Success day in the 12 palace system, it’s a really good day.
The Chinese almanac continue to smile and recommends meditating or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, taking a course, getting engaged, having an astrology reading, buying or making clothes, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, making wine or fermenting, buying or setting direction for your bed, hunting or setting up a tombstone as suitable activities.
Today's title alludes to being too close to something to see clearly. Consequently, if you are a wood person born in the Goat or Sheep month of July, you may not realise that the Goat or Sheep is your source of creativity and prosperity. Wood Sheep individuals make excellent investors and are probably among the most successful people in the banking or financial sectors. Is this you?

On the subject of success, famous Wood Sheep celebrities include Carl Lewis, Brad Pitt (day), 50 Cent, Rowan Atkinson, Chow Yun-Fat, Kevin Costner, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Gates, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Woody Harrelson, Lindsay Lohan, Nicolas Sarkozy, Maria Shriver, Jimmy Smits, Eddie Van Halen, Forest Whitaker and Bruce Willis.

Smile don’t get a goat – it’s annual kindness day
There is plenty to smile about as we celebrate an alignment between today’s Wood Goat, the current monthly sign of Pig and the annual Rabbit sign. This produces the strongest wood influence that can create either great kindness or incredible anger.
In the modern vernacular, “goat” is a metaphor for your state of peacefulness. When your goat is with you, you are calm and collected. When your goat is stolen, you become angry and upset. So smile and the world will smile back; it’s better than the alternative.
On the subject of smiling, it almost appears as if the Chinese almanac has a Cheshire cat like grin due to its bright red visage. This makes most things favourable including meditation, asking for blessings, taking a course, visiting friends, getting engaged, having an astrology reading, opening a business, signing contracts and trading, refurbishing a home or office, moving earth, fixing a roof, buying or setting direction for a bed or oven , hunting, or setting up a tombstone. It only advises against dealing with fabrics, so with the festive season looming, try to delay any urge to buy multi-coloured socks or reindeer emblazoned sweaters – at least until until tomorrow.
To see how your own sign is affected today see our dedicated Wood Sheep web page and we will return tomorrow on a Fire Monkey day.

Wood or Wode sheep day
The colour blue is associated with the stem element of Yin Wood in today’s Wood Sheep day. Actually, blue is associated with both the water and wood elements which is often a source of confusion. However, to clarify lighter shades than this mid tone shown in this Sheep picture are wood and darker hues are water element. If it helps, think of this shade as “woad” which sounds more like wood than water.
If you have a Wood Sheep in your Chinese horoscope it denotes wealth and management opportunities. Under the right conditions it could even indicate outstanding prosperity or if unfavourable great constriction. In any case, it should indicate good quality of life and an honourable person, dedicated to others. It also illustrates someone that keeps their emotions in check and they may have health problems if balancing elements are missing from their life. If this is the case feng shui can be used to great effect. Wood Sheep daily Chinese horoscope first posted Spring 2011
Green Goats Go Gambling and get a taste for July
If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that green is the colour most associated with the wood element. Today being a Wood Goat day, you should see how we get Green Goats in today’s title. Gambling is a bit harder to spot as you need to know that in the Sheng cycle; (the feng shui toolkit for enhancing environments and producing highly beneficial atmospheres) wood controls earth.
What you control in terms of elements, you get to keep and amass and is taken as wealth. However, in Chinese astrology the animal signs denote opportunities and gambling or more likely taking risks, which are after all, wealth opportunities. We don’t condone gambling in any form, so we take no responsibility for a random flutter as a result of reading this! Consequently, we don’t expect to share in your winnings either.
Mind you, if you are a wood person born in July the Goat or Sheep month, you probably don’t gamble because you have all you need. This is due to the Goat or Sheep being a source of creativity and prosperity for Yin Wood people. They make excellent investors and are probably among the most successful people in the banking or financial sectors. Is this you? Try a free horoscope and discover.
