Chinese New Year: Year of the Goat

baby-goat February 19 marks the Chinese New Year. 2015 is the year of the goat — what that means might be a mystery to you, but we’ll break it down for you. Here is what the year of the goat means:

Aside from 2015, according to the Chinese zodiac, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, and 2003 are all years of the goat. That means if you were born in one of those years, you share certain characteristics similar to other people in that sign.

People born under the sign of the goat are considered to be calm, gentle and humble. They are comfortable being alone and are introspective. Though they don’t like to lead, they are good workers and fast learners with a strong sense of creativity.

Because of their calm demeanor, goats don’t have many health problems. However, their health is determined by a content state of mind and heart. Their health can quickly decline when they are unhappy. For 2015, goats should take extra precaution as goats are accident-prone this year.

Though goats like high-quality goods, they are not extravagant. However, for goats, 2015 will be a bumpy year financially. Goats should be careful with spending and investing as there will be unexpected expenses.

The year’s outlook isn’t spectacular for goats except in romance where there may be changes — finding love or ending a relationship will keep things interesting and test your emotions, but it won’t last for long.
