Always keep in mind that while life is a communal effort, someone needs to take the credit and you've always been one to offer your services when a position needs to be filled. You may rely on others, and be somewhat fixated on appearances, but at the end of the day a leader is a leader and there's no shame in being who you are. Curious and agile, if you fancy climbing a tree this year, go right ahead.

Hard to believe that a goat could ever have digestive trouble, but whatever was giving you grief last year is going to fade. To continue the un-goat-like theme as we come into the next winter, you're at risk of falling - perhaps you're just doing this to make the kids laugh. Somewhere on the high, sheer cliff along which you're trotting is the Death Tally Star. Give him a cheesy grin and carry on regardless.


Cashmere, cash me, cash me out - all forms of wealth are well-aspected and it is udder quality. Some of it will be hard earned, and a goat works hard when necessary. Keep an eye out for cooperative ventures, spend well on the happy occasions in the family and look for support from some of your colleagues or clients.


Tie the fire crackers to your tail and get out your flute, for this year you're Pan and all the world is your nymph. Whoever it is that you have your heart set on will respond well to you. For those who are already hitched, it will be a good year to rekindle the stove and make some cheese to go with all the wine you can now buy.


Ordinarily, we'd say shine those horns, trim that goatee and do something about those alien horizontal pupils as you've an office to go to and a meeting with your seniors. Yet hovering around you is the Lunar Virtue Star – she who changes anything bad into something good. Even if no specific promotion is in the cards, an opportunity may arise and there'll be no need to ruminate.

Guiding hexagram from the Yi-Jing (Book of Changes)

Duration. Success. No blame. Perseverance furthers. It furthers one to have somewhere to go.
Thunder and wind: the image of Duration. Thus, the superior man stands firm and does not change his direction.
The Forest of Changes::
One body with two heads, like a girl being promised to two families, a chaos that cannot be governed.
But no butts, and there is no need to change what you're doing. Anything that looks ungovernable or chaotic is simply presenting a misrepresented picture of itself. Press on with what you're doing and watch the picture of apparent chaos order itself before you.
