The ancient Chinese people developed a sophisticated science of astrology that continues to have a profound influence in China today. Rooted in the fundamentals of Taoism, it evolved into a system vastly different from Western astrology. Rather than determining personality by the time of year in which you were born, Taoist astrology focuses on the year itself to determine one's character. The years form a twelve-year cycle of signs, each named after an animal. Each lunar year is depicted by a characteristic animal trait; your birth year determines your dominant animal sign. The 12 animals that appear on the Chinese Zodiac calendar include rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and boar.
Chinese Zodiac Symbol - Goat: Those born in Wei years have initiative spirits, consider in every aspect before action, and are able to get along very well. They are sociable and have good relationship with others. They are gentle and have the spirit of sacrificing themselves for benevolence. Their characters are gentle externally, but firm internally, and are trustworthy due to their discreteness. They are sentimental, meticulous, scrupulous, energetic and bold. They are filial throughout their life and take care of the children carefully. They are subjective and stubborn and prefer mysterious atmosphere. They have strong desire of seeking knowledge, do not spend money extravagantly, and are often thrifty. They are kind to others and love nature, and have noble and generous appearance. In love, the females may achieve as their wishes, but in males, it may be not so successful, and so the mood should be moderated.
