What is the Year of the Goat All About?

We can all agree that 2014 was, well, tumultuous. But with the imminent arrival of Chinese New Year on 19 February, what can we expect for 2015, the Year of the Goat? Breathe a sigh of relief because Chinese astrologists predict better times to come, with the political and economic instability of the past few years finally coming to an end. In fact, one epoch is replacing another and we’re entering a time of healing and compromise. Trust in the goodness of the world, the astrologists say, and happiness and success will follow.

For those whose Chinese zodiac sign is the goat (you were born in 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991 or 2003) this is going to be a good year. Put it all out there and take calculated risks. Ask for what you really need in life, strive towards your goals and they’ll come to you. Looking for love? Do a self-spruce and get out there. Unsatisfied at work? Take a class in what really interests you or have your resumé professionally drafted before you send it out. There’s no end to what you can achieve this year, but you need to do your part.
