In the west, the sign Cancer corresponds to the East's year of the goat. Both the sign Cancer and the goat are considered to be a nurturing, artistic, somewhat shy, gentle, compassionate and on the positive side, but when it comes to the goat's desires, sulking, complaining and pessimism will kick in until he gets his way.
All in all, the 2015 goat will bring a mindful, sentimental and steadier flavour to the year as it unfolds, but not without sacrifice by those trying to pressure the goat to make a move.
This year will be one of opportunity, excellent timing and new beginnings for those willing to bypass the waffling and take advantage of what's available. It's not a year to hesitate if you want to get ahead, and how far you will get will be determined by what you are willing to do in order to excel.
