In 2015, two mutually conflicting energies, wood and earth, will meet. It is therefore expected that, on the one hand, wood will encourage us to embrace new challenges, change, breaking taboos and restrictions, and earth, on the other hand, will promote stability, moderation and harmonious operation.


The main symbol of the wooden goat is wood, soft like a flower, a soft branch, grass or vines. Soft wood is distinguished by the ability to adapt to circumstances. However, goat also contains the element of fire, which is the interface between conflicting elements, so any disagreements and quarrels will be resolved with a hint of optimism, adaptation and moderation. In general, 2015 brings hope for a cessation of hostilities, and we will be filled with the energy of peace and constructive reconciliation. Anyone who will perform with aggression and violence can expect to be defeated by strategy and common sense, since in the year of the goat mental abilities will be encouraged, thus enabling us to overcome brute forces.


In general, economy will recover and most of the companies which had already implemented the necessary changes or developed innovations will no longer be in recession by the end of 2015. In the first half of the year, it is necessary to ensure that all debts are repaid, and in the second half of the year we will be rewarded for new measures introduced.


Most incentives are provided by makers in industries that create growth and progress, i.e. innovators, pioneers, revolutionaries, development departments, consultants, teachers, artists, woodworking, forestry, fashion and textile industry, aviation, as well as healers, astrologers, astronomers, scientists, ecologists, environmentalists, stock market, economics, athletes, entertainers. In 2015, the support previously given to the old, inoperative patterns, systems and structures will be offered to opportunities and expansions of new and creative solutions, innovations and ideas. We can expect new records, breaking borders and important astronomical discoveries.


Children born in this year will exhibit specific innate skills, talents, knowledge and high consciousness that will shape the future fate of our planet.






The motto of the year: "I believe in the good of mankind."

2015 will be the year of hope and faith in humanity and the predominance of good.

The basic atmosphere in 2015 will be a combination of enthusiasm and optimism, moderation and kindness, inspiration and compassion, harmony and willingness to compromise.

The year of the goat will spread over mankind a cloud of calm and tranquillity, so we will easily give up the call to violence, warfare and war. The goat will bring the energy of peace to the people who will have the opportunity to look into their heart, to break the past passion and greed, and to see the path that leads to harmony and well-being of all. Balance and social harmony are effective tools that break down the desire for destruction. The goat acts as an emissary of peaceful communication and compromise that can transform the aggression and rage to understanding and sophisticated communication. When people have a quiet heart, they are able to let go of a desire for violence and join the path of peacefulness. This is a time for healing and nurturing of relations. At the family level, this is the time when we need to unify and operate in a disciplined and loyal way. All who sincerely trust in the goodness, happiness, prosperity and success will be rewarded in 2015.


Challenge of the year will also be relationships, requiring intelligently combining the unstoppable desire for experiencing something new and daring with the need for a safety and stability. Therefore, take advantage of the opportunity to spice up your relationship with new ideas and capacities for fun, play and crazy adventures.


Test the limits of your talent(s) and surprise your partner, you will come out as the big winner, if not a hero. Do something that you can really be proud of. Enthusiastic mood will help attract other favourable situations and opportunities. Your ability for fast action and adaptability will be of key importance. At the same time, you have to be aware that enthusiasm can not be sustained forever, and that you have to take some time to regenerate.


At this time, offer to your partner a safe and peaceful cohabitation.

Indulge in your creativity and enjoy the simplicity and spontaneity of each moment. Caring for others should be enriched with a loving shelter, compassion, understanding and love.



The ruling elements: WOOD, EARTH and FIRE

Elements that will govern the year of 2015 are wood, earth and fire.

In the year of wood goat, wood will be much more flexible and adaptable than wood (dry tree) in the last year, i.e. year of the wooden horse. The difference is similar to the difference between the flexibility of flowers and trees. A flower or grass is much more flexible than a tree. Therefore, in 2015, we will be much more lenient and willing to compromise. A hallmark of yin wood is also ingenuity and ability to achieve the objectives set in many ways, so do not restrict yourself in your search for a path to a solution.


The second element that will define 2015 is earth, so we can expect developments in relation to the earth, such as natural landslides, earthquakes, demolition and formation of the earth...

Lack of water predicts dry soil, which can cause strong winds, droughts, forest fires and changes in the weather. On the other hand, the year of the goat provides an opportunity for better links to our planet. Perhaps the increased pollution and environmental disasters will remind us that it is time to be aware of the structure of the Mother Nature and find a solution in this respect, i.e. moderation. Goat usually proposes simplifying and combining the good so as to overcome the destruction and evil.

The third element that will mark 2015 is fire, as it will promote civility, politeness, courtesy, and balance of the supervisory relationship between wood and earth.







Spleen, stomach, pancreas and liver will be the most exposed body parts the in the next year. Symptoms caused by an imbalance or weakness in the organs can invade muscles (spasms), cells (cancer), small bones (fingers, hypothermia limbs), stomach and intestines. Due to the lack of the element of water in 2015, kidneys, immune system, spine, neck and spinal cord will be more exposed to the vulnerability. Due to unhealthy diets, there may be increased problems with obesity, swelling and diabetes.

If you are already facing the abovementioned problems and sleep in a room located in the south-eastern or western part of the house or apartment, it is recommended to move your bed to another, more convenient room.
