Year of the Goat
Written by Fercility Jiang-Updated Jan. 24, 2022

Years of the Goat: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027...

The Goat is eighth in the Chinese zodiac cycle. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with an animal sign, occurring in a 12-year cycle.

People born in a year of the Goat are generally believed to be gentle, mild-mannered, shy, stable, sympathetic, amicable, and brimming with a strong sense of kindheartedness and justice.

They have very delicate thoughts, strong creativity, and perseverance, and acquire professional skills well. Although they look gentle on the surface, they are tough on the inside, always insisting on their own opinions in their minds. They have strong inner resilience and excellent defensive instincts.

Although they prefer to be in groups, they do not want to be the center of attention. They are reserved and quiet, most likely because they like spending a lot of time in their own thoughts. Goats like to spend money on fashionable things that give them a first-class appearance. Although Goats enjoy spending money on the finer things in life, they are not snobbish.

Things that will bring Goats luck:
Lucky numbers: 2, 7, or numbers containing 2 and 7 (like 27 and 72)
Lucky days: the 7th and 30th of any month according to the Chinese lunar calendar
Lucky colors: brown, red, and purple
Lucky flowers: carnations and primroses
Lucky direction: north

Things that Goats should avoid:
Unlucky colors: blue and black
Unlucky numbers: 4 and 9
Unlucky direction: southwest
Worst lunar months: third, sixth, and tenth. Avoid these months if you have some important business to do or want to plan an event.

See below the compatibility of the Goat with other animals, and find out if the Goat is compatible with your sign or not:

Best with: Rabbit, Horse, Goat, or Pig
Worst with: Ox, Tiger, or Dog

Is It the Year of the Sheep, Goat, or Ram?
Chinese people are actually also not quite sure about this. In Chinese the word 羊 (yáng) is a generic term, and can refer to a sheep (绵羊), goat (山羊), ram/buck (公羊 male sheep or goat), antelope (羚羊), etc. There is a lack of clear definition on the zodiac Goat in Chinese history.

However, most Chinese people and experts on folklore believe that the Chinese zodiac animal is the Goat, not the Sheep, and they have some evidence to support their idea.

Firstly, the Chinese zodiac is an invention of the Han nationality, and goats were widely raised by the Han people (unlike sheep), so the zodiac animal is more likely to refer to a goat.

Secondly, a goat image often appears on Chinese zodiac stamps, New Year paper cuttings, and New Year paintings (rather than a sheep).

Thirdly, the Goat was one of the 12 bronze statues of the Chinese zodiac at the Old Summer Palace. Although its head was lost, its present reproduction according to historical records is in the image of a goat.
