The Year of the Goat 2015: A Cross Cultural Perspective

19 Jan, 2015
This article introduces us to Goat energy and places the Goat in context in mythologies across cultures. As Carey and Franklin point out, deep transformation is possible in a Goat year. Why would that be? Perhaps because we learn an important, and somewhat counter-intuitive, life lesson from the Goat. Goats are strong and persistent, but they tend always to push forward. Persistence is linked with success, but sometimes we have to stop pushing, stop butting our heads against obstacles, and let go of our obstinacy and resistance, in order to move forward and achieve our goals. The New Year is a good time to examine how we deal with life. If you find that you are struggling to go forward and seem to be getting nowhere, think about the Goat and back off a little. Having a little room to maneuver can sometimes make all the difference.
