Simply like trad could predicted the evil nature of John Wayne Gacy.
Hmm....kind of like music. What's your favorite type of music?
There are some symbologies that for me seems obvious.
Zebra for black&white, Sloth for laziness, Chameleon for changing colors, Peacock for beauty, Skunk for smelling bad.
When someone describes Bowie as the "rock Chameleon" everyone understands this; and even if some group of people raise Chameleons and know well the personality of those animals in order to have deep notions about their behavior, still, I guess they will interpret the symbol as anyone else.
It seems me somewhat unreasonable that with so many ferocious animals on earth, the wise ancient civilizations would chose the sheep as a symbol to this, totally ignoring the obvious, notory, distint capacity it has for carrying fur.
Now, imagine if Chameleon was a Sign, but it meant in West the lovely tenderness this animal exibits; later we discover that in India there's a Nakshatra called "Changing colors", and this Nakshatra abides right among the Sign "Chameleon". It's somewhat like this with the Sheep, except that Sheeps don't change colors neither Chameleons are, in the extent that I know, filled with lovely tenderness.
Aries is not ferocious. They are aggressive and impulsive, like a Ram, not like a tiger.
Calling Aries a 'sheep' is not helpful in this discussion, in my opinion. There is a difference between the term ram and the term sheep :
What is the difference between a ram and a sheep?
The term "sheep" covers ram, lamb, and mutton. a ram is a functional (breed-able) male, a lamb is a young sheep that has not reached maturity, and a mutton is a non-functional male (castrated).
"The Ram of the Golden Fleece", both rescuing and healing, is the most idealized version of Aries.
