The Year of the Goat, 2015, in the Hsia calendar, is symbolized by two elements – with Yin wood sitting on top of earth. According to the cycle of birth and destruction, which governs the inter-relationship between the elements, wood conquers earth and so they are on the destructive cycle and have fighting relationship. Normally such conflicting elements means disharmony. So there will be international conflicts and clashes. However, it seems such conflicts may be more easily resolved with compromise and concessions in 2015 as the nature of the Yin wood is a flower which is easy to adjust directions and much more flexible.
Yin wood also symbolizes the small branches of tree which is not so stubborn and can easily adjust to changing circumstances. With such character, we can expect 2015 will be comparatively less violent than 2014 when the yang wood is a stubborn tree standing by its principles and refuses to bend. In 2015 the flexible and more moderate character of yin wood represents compromising attitude and makes it easier to reach agreement between conflicting interests. As such, it will be easier to arrive at solutions and make treaties to resolve conflicts and struggles .The Goat is July in the Western calendar, which is still hot summer season, the fire energy is still very powerful. Hidden inside the goat is yin fire, yin earth and yin wood. This is dry summer earth without any water to nourish the wood. As such the Goat is also considered the grave of wood element and dry desert earth. The last two Gulf wars in the deserts of Middle East started in 1991 and 2003, both are years of the Goat, with thousands of US soldiers fought fiercely in Middle East Arabian deserts to liberate Kuwait in 1991 and to overrun Iraq in 2003. With the looming threat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, it will not be surprising that another Gulf war will breakout in 2015.
The Goat is strong earth element, in Chinese metaphysics it is the strongest earth as it is the month of July supported by summer fire. Inside the Goat there is hidden yin fire, yin wood and yin earth. So the fire energy still exist and the year is still favorable to energy business, air travel, sports, exercises, entertainment, restaurants, and fire is optimism which will continue to drive up the economy and the stock market. It is anticipated that 2015 the economic recovery in USA and Europe will sustain and continue and as there are less serious conflict like in 2014, the economic atmosphere will be more stable and steady with less dramatic fluctuations.
Certainly the very powerful earth energy of the Goat will also bring earth disasters, earthquake, landslide, avalanche, collapse of buildings etc. The devastating 311 earthquake in Japan in 2011 also occurred on day of Ox and hour of Goat. There is total absence of water in the goat, so it is very dry earth which will also be a cause of forest fire, hurricane, typhoon, and severe weather change. The goat is “grave of wood” and this is not favorable to plants and trees and the environment. Hence the problem of global warming related severe weather disasters will continue and deepen and there will also be environmental disasters in 2015. One cannot rule out nuclear damages, air and sea pollution leading to serious environmental destruction.
People who are born in the year of Goat are offending the year, if they have also a Dog somewhere in their four pillars or in their luck, they will suffer from earth penalty and is more susceptible to earth trouble in 2015 if earth is their unfavorable element. This will create health problems and misfortune related to cancer, stomach and muscles. People born in year of Ox is in clash against the year. They usually have more movements and travelling in 2015, it is ok to take such chance to make necessary changes such as moving house, moving office, or changing job or taking trips. However they should take extra care and refrain from risky sports such as driving fast cars, driving airplane, skin diving, parachuting etc. It is recommended that they carry the pendant of a Horse and the Tai Sui Amulet which will help to attract away the Goat, so as to minimize the negative influence of the clash. For people born in year of the Ox, it is good to minimize travelling direct towards the Southwest direction as it is the direction of the Grand Duke in 2015.
