Chinese New Year – What Year Are You?

Year of the Goat

Tomorrow, the 19th February is the Chinese New Year and 2015 is the year of the Goat, although here in Australia it is noted on our calendar as year of the Sheep.

The Goat ( Chinese: ; pinyin: yáng) is the eighth sign of the 12-year cycle of animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The sign is also referred to as the Ram or Sheep sign.

The Year of the Goat (or Year of the Ram) is associated with the 8th Earthly Branch symbol, (wèi).

I was born in the year of the Monkey. Apparently Leonardo da Vinci, Charles Dickens and Lord Byron were also born in the year of the Monkey.

Should this make me feel better about my future? What does the year of the Goat mean for us Monkeys?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Drop me a comment below and don’t forget to let me know which year you were born!
