The Goat is the eighth animal in the twelve year Zodiac cycle. Since ancient times, people used goatskins for warmth and to provide protection from the elements. Goats with white skin have a delicate and precious connotation of purity and innocence. Symbolizing such character traits as creativity, intelligence, dependability, and calmness, those born during the Year of the Goat love to dream and ponder. They enjoy being part of a group, but prefer to be on its edges rather than at its center. Having said this, their nurturing personalities make them strong friends and romantic and dependable partners. Those born during this Lunar Year are often quiet of personality and very fond of nature. They will frequently feel most comfortable at home where they can express their artistic talents.
