Certainly the most aesthete of the 12 celestial animals of Chinese astrology, the Goat is very intelligent, insightful and visionary. Though the Goat may seem weak at first, she is actually a robust and pragmatic opportunist, especially when it comes to defending her own interests.
Very skilled in the unlikely situations, the Goat knows perfectly on which rocks to lay her delicate hoofs, and in which direction to leap, especially when it is a matter of preserving her spiritual and material tranquility, indispensable to her well-being and her flourishing. Charming and deeply gentle, the Goat can nevertheless exasperate her friends by her useless lamentations. A natural born artist or politician, the Goat needs to be well accompanied in order to fully blossom.
The year of the Dog 2018 is a mixed period for people born during the Year of the Goat in the Chinese calendar, even though sustained effort and altruism are to be rewarded to their true value. The Goat must therefore prepare to redouble his efforts in order to attain his objectives. The Goat must above all remain prudent and control his impulses, to avoid any missteps and to keep his balance, advancing gently but surely. Artistic activities undertaken by the Goat during the previous months can finally show signs of success during the second half of the Year of the Earth Dog 2018, provided that he has been persevering all along that time and kept the trust in his own judgment.
Love, Romance and Marriage
On a sentimental level, a Year of the Dog can turn out to be all fire and sparkles for the Goat. Indeed single Goats may well get many opportunities to meet serious partners during this period. However, the Goat must remember to watching his back at all times and not trusting his friends about the details of his love story.
For the Goat in couple, two diametrically opposed scenarios lie ahead: the first one announces the fulfilment of the relationship, while the other one omens of a break-up. However, in either case, the outcome of his relationship depends on how the Goat decides to assume and take responsibility for the present. The Year of the Dog 2018 is a good time to prepare for the birth of a baby Pig in 2019, Year of the Pig. The Pig (Boar), just like the Rabbit is highly compatible with the Goat.
Work and Social Life
In 2018, the Goat can be recognized as a source of inspiration, even a muse. He can also become an important reference in his field of activity, or even a sought after advisor. The Goat at the beginning of a career must rely on his intelligence and be brave in order to have a first glimpse of the peaceful existence to which he aspires.
The Goat must hold also his tongue in 2018, and make sure that he does not share any of the information that he was entrusted. In spite of the general orientation of a Year of the Dog, which encourages generosity and the balance of relationships, the Goat must constrain his benevolent nature and reserve the right to say no at all times. By making sure that his personal interests are his main priority, the Goat can protect himself from the unscrupulous people who surround him, as they would not hesitate to take advantage of his credulity to seek to ruin him.
Career and Competitive Exam
On a professional level, it is not the best of times to start up new projects. The Goat must rather be patient and focus on the ongoing building of projects launched in 2017, the Year of the Rooster. Similarly, only the Goats who previously succeeded in designing their project against all odds, despite many moments of doubt and hesitation, can expect their investments to finally begin to materialize in 2018. Sustained effort and altruism will result in success in the competitive exams.
Travel and Transfer
Chances are rite that the official tour will be enforced upon the goat which will pave the way for upliftment in position and status. However, in 2018, the Goat might well be tempted to take a long holiday, at the risk of spending more money than his budget would allow. Favourable promotion will be the outcome of this year but within the same place as desired by the goat.
