Love for Aries in a Sheep year
can be magical. The Sheep inspires beauty and the arts, and brings a romantic whimsical flair to relationships - but don't be fooled. The Ram's keen sexuality is heightened this year, and passions can run deep. While the energies of 2015 aspire to harmony, there can be some volcanic turbulence beneath the surface, which may emerge in surprising ways.
Aries is a devoted partner and prefers to work things out if possible, but problems in the Sheep year can be unusually temperamental or stubborn. Beware of mulling over minor details and focus on the bigger picture. Relationship difficulties are often simpler than they seem, but can be complicated by a myriad of extraneous factors. Time and space may be needed for perspective or healing.
Fundamentally a Sheep year isn't one of breakups. The Sheep brings elements of nurturing and growth to love relationships which can help them become stronger. Couples should put aside the demands of the ego and focus on prevailing yin energy to facilitate the process of fortification and rebuilding.
Flying Star #3, the Feng Shui star located in the center of the home this year, has a direct effect on family harmony and love relationships whether intimate, friendship or filial, causing bickering and heartbreak.

Trust your instincts and intuition. Gut feelings and hunches can get you ahead of the game, but if you take too long to think about it, you can lose your sense of direction. It's better to take a leap of faith and move forward, than to stand on the brink of the chasm staring into the abyss.

This year you may find yourself challenging learned behaviors and coping mechanisms as they come into conflict with your own thoughts and processes. While work brings money, working too hard at something you dislike, or are unsuited for, can cause health problems and other complications.
