Goats are charming and friendly people who never leave anyone indifferent.

They generally retain their legendary cheerfulness and optimism only to people they consider worthy of their esteem. Deep inside their heart, people born in the Year of the Goat are often anxious and hesitant. The magic of their magnetism is an asset that allows Goats to always feel comfortable in society, attracting them towards the most influential figures.

Their good heart always pushes Goats to provide assistance to the poor. Secretly jealous enemies often resort to deceitful methods to discredit them. Despite this, Goats are able to retain their high-mindedness and empathy for those around them.

Goats fall in love easily, to the point of being able to truly love several people at once. Under certain conditions, be it friendship or love, they're ready to silently endure unpleasant situations. However, when they feel that their love is not reciprocated, Goats can scowl very quickly.

Goats also have an excellent memory. Their ability to forgive easily doesn't mean that the persons born in the Year of the Goat remain blind to the actions of those around them. In business, one couldn't say they're natural negotiators, however they're very good for assessing a complex situation.

🌳 Wood Goat

You’re a Wood Goat-Sheep if you’re born in 1955 or in 2015. In 2017, you’re 62 or 2 years old. Your Totem Number is 32. Your Unlucky Number is 38.*

Joyful, confident and generous, the Wood Goat is clearly not a fighting Goat.

She will always prefer to opt for diplomacy and compromise rather than direct confrontation. The Wood Goat, sentimental and affectionate, gives body and soul to her loved ones and to the strangers she meets and who are in need. The altruistic generosity of the Wood Goat protects her effectively when she's herself in need, for her entourage then spontaneously helps her.

🔥 Fire Goat

You’re a Fire Goat-Sheep if you’re born in 1967. In 2017, you’re 50 years old. Your Totem Number is 44. Your Unlucky Number is 50.*

The Fire Goat is the least timid, but also the most melancholic of her fellows.

Her projects are as grandiose as her propensity for spending. Dynamic and creative, the Fire Goat is also capable of uncontrollable anger when she feels unfairly criticized.

🗿 Earth Goat

You’re an Earth Goat-Sheep if you’re born in 1979. In 2017, you’re 38 years old. Your Totem Number is 56. Your Unlucky Number is 2.*

Unlike the other Goats, the Earth Goat is capable of a measured independence.

Generous, kind, always available to others, the Earth Goat is suspicious of those who ask her too many questions. Delicate and touchy, not supporting any remarks, the Earth Sheep is a dreamer, capable of deploying great talents in all the artistic fields that require rigor and perseverance, such as music, painting, theater, poetry, dance and cinema

🔧 Metal Goat

You’re a Metal Goat-Sheep if you’re born in 1991. In 2017, you’re 26 years old. Your Totem Number is 8. Your Unlucky Number is 14.*

Proud, aesthete, very concerned about her appearance, the Metal Goat is also secretly emotional and fragile.

Jealous and possessive, in love as in friendship, the Metal Goat grants her trust only to a limited number of people, whom she chooses exclusively out of love or opportunism. Her confidence, her sure taste and her multiple creative talents open to her the door to successful ventures in the Arts and Entertainment industries. The Metal Goat has an innate gift for knowing how to sell her services at a golden price; if she chooses an artistic career, she can become the richest of her fellows, and by herself!

💧 Water Goat

You’re a Water Goat-Sheep if you’re born in 1943 or in 2003. In 2017, you’re 74 or 14 years old. Your Totem Number is 20. Your Unlucky Number is 26.*

The Water Goat enjoys a great popularity with her friends and family, as she's greatly appreciated by her humility and fidelity.

Superficial, impressionable and opportunistic, the Water Goat has a tendency to choose first what reassures her and asks the least possible effort from her. Any disagreement with her vision of things is synonymous with rejection to her, which doesn't make the Water Goat anymore resentful in return.

* The Totem number combination may be embedded in your phone number, the number of your home or the license plate of your car, a hotel room, or as the indicative number of a city or country. Totem numbers mean that the life element the Totem number contains has a secret potential and can be highly beneficial. On the other hand, the Unlucky (or danger) Number combination signals that one should better stay on alert when confronted to a place, object or situation containing this figure.
