Goat or Sheep or Ram?

Are you confused if you are born as a Sheep or A Goat or Ram for your Chinese Zodiac Sign?

The Chinese word yáng refers to both goats and sheep,[5] whereas the terms shānyáng (山⁠羊) and miányáng (绵⁠羊綿⁠羊) refer exclusively to goats and sheep, respectively.

In English, the sign (originally based on a horned animal) may be called either. The interpretation of goat or sheep depends on culture.[1] In Vietnamese, the sign is mùi, which is unambiguously goat.[8] In Japan, on the other hand, the sign is hitsuji, sheep;[8] while in Korea[9] and Mongolia, the sign is ram or sheep. Within China, there may be a regional distinction with the zodiacal yáng more likely to be thought of like a goat in the south, while tending to be thought of like a sheep in the north. source-Wikipedia


The Chinese commonly regard sheep as an auspicious animal, and the year of the sheep, therefore, heralds a year of promise and prosperity. “Yáng” (羊) is a component of another written Chinese characters “xiang” (), which means auspiciousness, and the two were interchangeable in ancient Chinese, according to one source.[11] It is also a part of the character “shan” (), which counts kindness and benevolence as among its meanings.

Individuals born in the zodiac year have been supposed to share certain characteristics with other individuals also born in years of the same animal sign. Similarly, years sharing the same animal sign have been supposed to share certain characteristics, repeating over their 12/60 year cycle. The shared characteristics, in this case, are traits attributed to goats.

Due to the lunisolar nature of the traditional Chinese calendar system,the zodiacal year does not align with the Gregorian calendar: new years are determined by a system which results in each new year beginning on a new moon sometime between late January to mid-to-late February.[13] Goat aspects can also enter by other chronomantic factors or measures, such as hourly.

In Chinese astrology, Goats are described as peace-loving, kind, and popular. With the addition of the Wood element, the Goat characteristic is thought to love peace and to be helpful and trusting, but yet also to be clinging and of a nature resistant to change
