The Sheep can be a sign of contradictions. There are times of paradox when nothing makes sense. These can precede fortunate shifts in direction or new opportunities, so if you're in a dilemma with no solution, trust serendipity. Things can work out in ways you might never imagine.
Elemental balance is in your favor. As a Water sign, Scorpio works well with dominant Wood, Fire and Earth of the Yin Wood Sheep Year. Make sure your environment isn't too stuffy as this can affect your mental acuity. Open windows, use fans or green plants to improve flow of Air energy. Metal can promote good health.
The color red can inspire and motivate, but don't use this in an area that favors emotional calm, such as a sleeping place. Fragrances or plants beneficial for you this year include mint and citrus. Mint helps open energy channels and citrus relates to the Sun.
You may be inclined to spend more time outside and pursue activities such as camping, nature lore, outdoor sports or environmental awareness projects. You could also invest some time and money in your home, either renovating or other home improvements, or moving residence. It's a good year to increase the beauty of your surroundings but be sure to watch for hidden expenses, as fanciful pleasures abound and common sense can easily take a prolonged trip down the garden path.
Scorpio is a passionate sign
. Beyond this basic truth, not much needs to be said. The Scorpion can be a deep thinker, a poet and philosopher always recreating and reshaping the world through thought and action. In love, this sign will go to the ends of the earth for that special someone. Scorpio is a loyal friend and partner. While this sign has a lot of love to give, Scorpio may have trouble receiving it.
Emotional factors can wreak havoc this year, and the savvy Scorpion may be more paranoid than usual.

Fortunately, there's no time like the Year of the Sheep to optimize the flow of Love energy. If you have feelings such as guilt or anger preventing you from receiving love, rejoice! This is the year to get rid of negativity, cultivate feelings of happiness and beauty, heal and move forward in life.
Many new developments appear for Scorpio in the Sheep Year. Relationships are generally harmonious but could have some rough spots if emotional issues arise. Your biting cynicism can cause deep wounds, but may be a product of other deep wounds. It's not always easy to be objective. The good news is, where true love exists, relationships grow stronger. The occasional storm can help your partnership flourish in the long term. The most important thing this year is to heed your intuition, because your thinking mind could lead you astray in spectacular ways.
Emotions could be especially intense over the summer, coinciding with Saturn retrograde in Scorpio until Aug 2. You could be drawn to exotic temptations, wild weekends or especially daring sensual adventures. Conversely, you could have a big screaming fight with the one(s) you love the most. Things settle down in the realm of love by late summer, and continue to improve as the influence of Venus brings happy harmonious energy in December - and great sex.
If you're seeking your soulmate, this is one of the most fortunate years to connect with this person. Sure, it's all serendipity, but you can also put the odds in your favor. The number two, pairs and symmetry can attract love vibrations. You could cross paths with your soulmate at an outdoor event or activity. Although there's a lot of space, the distance between you two is not very far.
