Many Chinese people place great store in the Chinese horoscope and its 12 animal signs. According to legend, the goat was eighth to arrive when Buddha called upon the animal kingdom to visit him – hence the goat is the eighth animal symbol of the popular Lunar calendar.
Positive characteristics of being born under the influence of the goat are believed to include charm, elegance and composure. Goats are also considered to be gifted and artistic people.
