A new animal is about to take center-stage in the Chinese horoscope!

The Year of the Goat starts on Feb. 19 with the Lunar New Year, or Chinese Spring Festival, and ends on Feb. 7, 2016.

2015 is the Year of the Green Wooden Goat, according to the theory of five elements (fire, earth, metal, water, and wood).

Wood encourages careful analysis, and practical solutions. Sudden breakthroughs are possible if you’re honest. Don’t get stuck in fear or anger. You’re responsible for how you interpret what comes your way. Forgiveness and gratitude become powerful forces for personal transformation.

It’s also time to dream big, and create the life you’ve always wanted. This year could be your chance to fulfill some major goals, and even take a tropical vacation. So get your camera and journal ready!


Goat & Rat – Although these two are naturally attracted to each other, the Goat is puzzled by the Rat, and never knows what the Rat is thinking. This can lead to resentment.

Ox & Goat– They admire each others’ qualities. The Ox’s reliability gives the Goat security, while the Goat appreciates the Ox’s deeper feelings.  A good match, though perhaps a little dull.

Monkey & Goat – The Goat will need lots of patience to handle the Monkey’s unpredictability, but cannot help being dazzled by the Monkey’s tricks. The Goat brings stability to the Monkey’s hectic life.
