GOAT FOR IT!  2015 Is The Year of the Goat!

According to the Chinese Calendar The Year of The Goat has just begun! We know that you know that sometimes everybody has this strong urge to be a black sheep... or a goat.

Let’s see how to reveal your inner animal. But first... a close look on some zodiac facts.
The goat is the eighth animal in the Chinese Calendar and it’s probably the most interesting one.

They follow their instincts with a mind twisted like a pretzel. Doing things without any logic or motive. Goats can climb like crazy - they can get up a tree faster than any cat and, in opposition to it, they know how to come down. Some of those ungulates can make unimaginable sounds, which can be either funny or scary or both... And they can attack you for totally no reason.
So it seems to us kind of weird that as a symbol in the Chinese horoscope, the goat stands for peace, harmonious co-existence, tranquility and also arts… (arts of war perhaps). Anyway, the  person born in the Year of the Goat is one of the most popular of people. Famous for their charm and elegance. It seems that “goats” unlike their animal counterparts, have no dark side: they tend to be polite, loving, kind-hearted, gentle and calm…. They are also the perfect BFF material  - can always be counted on when you need a shoulder to cry on. Well… as you see, it’s not only wise but also cool to keep your goat close.
