Happy Chinese New Year!

This is a confusing zodiac. Is this suppose to be the year of the goat or the year of the sheep

Here is a link to explain the difference between the goat and the ram but my view is that since the Chinese zodiac originated from China, it is probably more of a mountain "goat" than a woolly sheep found in New Zealand. 

It is also interesting to note that reference to this animal is usually "negative" in Chinese idioms. I can easily think of a few idioms such as 羊毛出在羊身上, 亡羊补牢, 挂羊头卖狗肉, 顺手牵羊。If you are interested to learn about some of the idioms, the link is here.

I take this opportunity to wish readers a healthy and prosperous year of the Green Wooden Goat.


This post is intentionally scheduled for an auspicious date and time too. 18 Feb 8:08 am. ^_^

Nice post but I wonder for years and years, human have place more faith in external objects outside of themselves more than their god given abilities to achieve what they truly want in life.

And the belief created a multi billion dollars markets for many signs and stuffs that predicts one fortune, relationship and even power in life.

For a little fun sake, I think it is ok if one subscribe to what the goat year has map out for them but take it with a pinch of salt. But if one is serious about their destiny this year and beyond, they should evaluate their options carefully.

Happy new year !
