Why Year of the Goat might be annoying
Out of all Chinese astrology signs, it is the most feminine.
They are worrywarts.
They are daydreamers.
They are not particularly good speakers.
They tend to be obsessed with their appearance, to the point of not going outside to get the Sunday newspaper.
In the Han Dynasty’s recording of the 12 branches, 1 PM to 3 PM is the key time of this sign — for grazing and frequent bouts of wee-wee.
Why Year of the Goat might not be annoying
You might want them more for artistic talent than for business dealings.
As well-connected as they might be, they do not like to be the center of attention.
They are close to their families.
They are not particularly religious.
They believe ‘home is where the heart is.’
One telling of the Great Race credits the Goat with being part of a cooperative trinity of Monkey and Rooster, where it cleared the weeds while pulling the raft spotted by the Rooster.
