By Peter Allsop
Author's book: Year of the Snake: Chinese Astrology & Feng Shui Guide
Chinese Astrology's 8th Zodiacal sign elegant Goat/Sheep faces an auspicious Snake Year (2013-14) in wealth and business terms; however, their relationships and health outlooks are not so promising.
Are you a Goat? Are you 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 (and so-on in 12-year increments) between 19th February 2015 and 7th February 2016 (Goat/Sheep Year's end)? Do partners, friends, relatives, colleagues, parents or children fall into this category? If the answer is 'Yes' then this article is for you!
Years of the GOAT/SHEEP:
1907 Fire; 1919 Earth; 1931 Metal; 1943 Water; 1955 Wood; 1967 Fire; 1979 Earth; 1991 Metal; 2003 Water; 2015 Wood.
Famous Goats/Sheep Include:
Pamela Anderson, Jane Austen, Anne Bancroft, Chow Yun Fat, Robert De Niro, John Denver, Mel Gibson, George Harrison, Julio Iglesias, Zhang Ziyi, Mick Jagger, Sir Laurence Olivier, Vangelis, John Wayne and Bruce Willis.
The elegant and refined Goat/Sheep is a creative, thoughtful and contemplative individual, usually an idealist, with little in the way of materialistic tendencies. Most comfortable at home, Goats often express themselves via some form of Artistic discipline.
Goats, however, can be shy and insecure, avoiding confrontation and taking unpopular decisions, sacrificing the achievement of personal goals to keep others happy. Well-mannered and popular, Goats/Sheep need to be more assertive to feel secure.
Ideal Goat/Sheep Occupations Include:
Design, Floristry, Pediatrics, the Stage, Education, Hairdressing/Styling, Music, Journalism.
In relationship terms, those born under the Sign of the Goat/Sheep are most compatible with those born under the Signs of the Rabbit and Pig and least compatible with the Rat or Ox.
Goat/Sheep in the Year of the Snake 2013-14
Lucky Snake Year is an auspicious one for Goats, bringing them lots of career luck, particularly in the first half of the year. This is also a fortunate year for Goats.
Financially they should make back any cash they lost last year, with interest. If a windfalls occur, look after the funds carefully!
Romantically, however, there is little for Goats to look forward to this Year. Health-wise, Goats may experience joint pains and also allergic reactions.
Two Year Animals: One Year Element
Yang Water is Year Element in Dragon Year (2012-13), Yin Water in Snake Year (2013-14) as the 5 Elements repeat twice in successive continuing 10-Year Cycles in Yin and Yang modes. Water is associated with the emotions, wealth, communication and intrusiveness.
Financial improvement is seen for governments and individuals in positions of responsibility and those experiencing difficulties from the previous Dragon year. Snake Years also raise awareness of environmental issues and the ways these will affect future generations. The 12 Animal Chinese Zodiac Cycle runs parallel to its 10 year Elemental 'colleague' producing 120 potential variations. Water is associated with the emotions, wealth, communication and intrusiveness.
