Year of the Horse 2014
The Chinese Zodiac is made up of a recurring 12-years cycle with each years represented by an animal sign. The seventh sigh in the Chinese zodiac, the Horse symbolizes perception and power. Those born in the Year of the Horse are intuitive and practical, intelligent and quick-witted, independent and likable. Horses make excellent teachers, journalists, politicians and performers.

Year of the Goat 2015
2015 is the year of the Goat. The Goat is the eighth animal in the Chinese zodiac and symbolizes independence. Those born in the Years of the Goat are very creative, reserved and quiet, with a great capacity for deep affection. Goats make excellent actors, writers, doctors, teachers, designers and musicians.
