The Chinese Year Of The Goat - Articles Surfing
There are twelve Chinese year signs in the Chinese Zodiac. Unlike in our western astrology, in Chinese astrology each sign lasts for a year. Legend has it that as Buddha was about to depart the earth he summoned all the animals to say goodbye. Only twelve turned up so, to show his appreciation of their loyalty, he vowed that from then on each year would bear the name of one of the animals.
Chinese astrology is based on the Lunar Calendar. This means the Chinese New Year does not fall on the same day each year and can vary by as much as 3 weeks. So for babies born in late January/early February it is necessary to consult the charts to determine the correct sign.
You will find a chart of the dates and signs below. Once you have found out which sign you require, click on the name to go to the relevant page to find out the characteristics of your Chinese year sign.

The Chinese Year of the Goat
Goats are gentle people, kind hearted and caring about the well-being of others. They are possibly the nicest personalities in the Chinese zodiac. If they accidentally cause others unhappiness they will be distraught.
Often quiet and shy, Goats usually get their own way by using their charm. People born under this sign are good with people, their compassion making them great comforters - they have all the requirements for a successful and rewarding career in nursing.
Goats are very lucky. Even when things don't go their way they often turn out to be blessings in disguise.
Goat people's biggest failing is their unreliability which can drive others mad. They should try to instil some discipline into their activities. They also need to guard against obstinacy.
If you have problems a friendly, compassionate Goat will certainly make you feel better.
