Year of the Goat: Personality horoscope
The magic of his magnetism is an asset that allows the Goat to feel comfortable in society, and can even bring him to meet influential people for his career. His good heart and generous soul always pushes the Goat to provide assistance to the poorest, even when he himself is in a precarious situation. His enemies, jealous of his talents, often resort to deceitful methods to discredit him. In spite of this, the Goat is able to keep his faith in the world and his empathy and benevolence for those around him.
The Goat falls easily in love, to the point of being able to sincerely love several people at once. Under certain conditions, whether in friendship or in love, he is ready to endure unpleasant situations without saying a word. However, when the Goat feels that his love is not reciprocal, he scolds quickly and then jumps gracefully and with agility towards more lush pastures. In his daily life, the Goat is easily satisfied with what nature brings him, as long as the grass at his disposal remains green and fat.
The Goat also has an excellent memory. His ability to forgive easily doesn't mean that the native of the Year of the Goat remains blind to the actions of those around him. In business, if one can't say that the Goat is a born negotiator, he is however, just like the Monkey, very good at evaluating a complex situation.
When the Goat chooses an artistic or political career, he can achieve excellence and success in these two areas. In truth, the Goat can perform miracles, provided that he doesn't let himself be stunned by the idleness of an overly favorable environment and that he manages to question himself on the meaning of his life and his deep aspirations.
Indeed, the Goat, so concerned with his freedom, must remember wisely that true freedom passes through independence and that to gain access to it he must build his projects in the long term, with perseverance, and avoid any temptation to unnecessary expense.
