According to Chinese Astrology, 2015 is the year of the Yin Wood Sheep (羊)The Chinese year 2015 is that can mean sheep, goat and/or ram. 

The Chinese word  for sheep (羊 yáng) is also the root of the ram (公羊 gōngyáng) and goat (山羊 shānyáng). I have heard someone explain that way back when the differences between sheep and goats weren’t that clear.

This year is in big contrast to the Yang Wood horse of 2014.   In 2014, we saw a lot of action and revelations and hopefully this year we can get more centered, focused and be more gentle with ourselves and others.

The wood aspect governs the Chinese organ system of the Liver (JueYin) which is the deepest system and is matched with the Pericardium (Heart Protector). The Liver can manage the emotions but when disturbed can bring about great anger. Although we would like to think this year brings about a soft, gentle and feminine energy it also may have aspects of the opposite should we not be careful.
