In a word – revealing.
Mitt Romney — born in 1947 – the Year of the Pig:
“Pigs are industrious workers. They love to work hard and enjoy the fruits of their hard work. They not only earn money for their good days but they plan and save money for retirement days as well. They plan their lives in a way that they become rich eventually.
“They have a stern exterior but also have a million dollar heart. They work with a smiling face always. Pigs avoid confrontations and chaotic situations. It seems that pigs are unpolished but perform their duties satisfactorily. They love to live in harmony.
“But they are vulnerable and can be targeted also very easily.
“Pigs are hedonists. The self indulgent side is a bad aspect of a pig’s character. Pigs always take some time to help with money, smile or a hug. Pigs have a very good sense of humor and are very good at throwing jokes.”
Newt Gingrich - born in 1943 - the Year of the Sheep:
“Sheep crave for attention and dream about a fascinating and long lasting love story. The personality of a sheep is very complex. Sheep keeps quiet and is shy at times. Sheep can also change his mind and become strident.
“Sheep are soft hearted and the bad news in television and newspaper hurt them severely. So it is suggested to avoid bad news and violent activities. A sheep enjoys documentaries and romantic comedies.
“A sheep is an emotional individual. They always want to be a part of any team. They are the followers, not the leaders. They don’t like to take the blame on them if anything goes wrong. A sheep always likes to put the blame on the team. It is very hard for a sheep to bear any criticism from anyone around. Sheep does not like to aggravate and taunt others.”
Barack Obama - born in 1961 - the Year of the Ox:
“Since an ox is very systematic, and levelheaded, you can definitely count him as a well-wisher whenever you are in a hitch.
“But he never wants to grab the attention and take the credit of it for his initiation and ideal leadership. He is perfectly numb and comfortable in the middle of a team.
“You will never have any doubt on the loyalty and dependability of an ox as a friend or family member. He or she will protect his/her own; at the same time he/she will not sacrifice the benefits of his/her near and dear ones.
“It is a widely known fact that ox possesses tremendous control over his/her emotions but it can never be a reason for which you should cross your limit. They can be severely formidable and terrifying. They may even throw things at you and hold grudges because of small affairs. Ox not often shows his/her emotion publicly but things can get ugly if you hurt him/her sentiments. Don’t try to provoke an ox at any point of time.”
So sayeth the stars!
