The professional experience gained over the last few years is proving its worth now: they are the most suited candidates for positions that become available now. Most likely, these opportunities appear within the organization that they work for: administrative reorganizations, foundation of new departments.
The year of the Earth Dog comes after the Rooster year which was a lucky year. This means that for those born in the Goat year, 2018 is prone to goals and objectives analysis, balance and recalibration. By doing this with their inborn objectivity and seriousness, they prepare themselves for the big opportunities following in the next year.
In 2018, they have to face some extra tasks which require acquiring and deepening new knowledge. Taking some professional courses or individual study are some activities that will soon prove their value.
This year, they make progress on the financial level, especially through bonuses obtained due to their professional results. On the other hand, it would be a good thing to save some money for next year too because by then they will want to make some important changes in their lives and they will need funds.
There are no spectacular changes this year. It is rather a preparation year for the next one. But precisely this preparation is important. It is good to spend some time on themselves. They need time to relax, to rest, to meditate. It’s true that their principle is that only through hard work can you achieve something in your life. But it is important that this work is correctly organized and redirected. And the time spent relaxing and in meditation over themselves and their future could help them analyze themselves more objectively so that they could paint a better image on how to improve their individual performances. The Goat is the man of routines, of the solid habits that have results. This is the best time to lucidly analyze these habits and select the truly efficient ones.
On the emotional level, this is not quite the perfect year to find their match. It is rather a time when the stability of their relationships, if they are not very old, is being tested. One of the partners is going through hard times; now they can see how much is the other one willing to do or give to support their partner.
The social level is favored in this year of the dog. The Goat could find more than relaxation in the company of their friends: they could finally find some relationships that may get tighter and that could become very advantageous for both parts on the intellectual, and even on the social and professional level.
