Subject: Happy Tsagaan Sar from all of us at the ACMS

The year of the Sheep year is seen as a time for healing and stability after the chaos of 2014's Horse year.

This year is the year of the Wood Sheep or Goat. The year is symbolized by the color green, meaning new growth and renewal. The main theme for the next 13 months should be on intimacy, family and close friendships. It is a year to develop a gentle heart and open acceptance on all levels. 

Another aspect of the wood sheep is creativity; it is a time for art and the cultivation of beauty. The year of the sheep is a time to pick a direction and not give up or become discouraged because Sheep can only move forward! 

With this in mind, we encourage all to renew old academic relationships, seek out new opportunities for collaboration, commit to your research goals for the year, and publish as much as they can.

From all of us at the ACMS, we'd like to wish you all a great year of the Wood Sheep/Goat
