Love: This is the year of activity. If you are in a relationship this is an excellent time to create a project together or combine one you are both doing separately.

If you are single and yet unattached 2018 may be the year your flighty heart gets kidnapped. Enjoy the ride.
Dreams: As the snake, you are the symbol of the Kundalini, Great Wisdom, in your dreams. To be bitten by a snake in your dreams is to absorb knowledge; The more significant the snake, the higher the wisdom. Your nightmares will be messages of health and love in disguise.

Finances: It will be in your best interest to act quickly if changes appear to disrupt your career and financial schedule. Your income schedules may bounce from high to low during the year. Do not worry unnecessarily if your income drops lower than the previous month. It is all part of the financial process of ups and downs. Focus on safe investments.
Love: This year will be more favorable to peaceful love relationships than to an electrifying love at first sight rollercoaster ride. Do not be doubtful of your abilities to attract the perfect mate for you. When the time is right you will find the necessary resources within yourself to make the most of a love opportunity that will create a condition of change in your life. If you are married this is a good year to embark on a new and thrilling love project. If you are single but in a committed relationship, this year may be a bit rocky for you. This will be an excellent time to reconcile and make a new start at something more permanent. You have a unique opportunity to create a lasting encounter at this time. If you are single, only focus your time and efforts on contacts with serious prospects. Just don’t get too carried away with perfectionism. Long-term commitment is on your amorous horizon.
Dreams: As the beautiful horse you are the symbol of the messenger in the dream world, so expect your dreams to contain answers to questions you have in your waking world. This is the perfect time to set your dream intention to become an avid dreamer and watch your messages manifest.
8th Chinese Zodiac Sigh-Goat (Western Zodiac Scorpio)- born in these years: 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015. The Dog will be an excellent year for the Goat. 2018 predicts a year with pleasant surprises, especially in your career and love life. However, there may be some obstacles thrown in your way by life. Not a problem for the mountain climbing goat like you. Get on top of the situation and look down on it from a different point of view. Your challenges may often be a matter of putting things in their proper perspective.  Now, in order to face the year’s problems and make the most of them, you’ll need to be in good mental and physical form so start a work-out program and give top priority to your health. During times of stress, you need a stable and balanced lifestyle. This year focus on a proper diet and regular medical checkups as a good defense against health issues.
Finance: “Decisions, decisions!” are the words that describe your financial year. This year is going to be your year of invitations; both receiving and giving them. You are likely to spend more time during this year at various functions. The positive aspect of this is it will be a great way to meet and make new friends.  The downside is you could be faced with some difficulties in trying to turn down some of the invitations, especially the ones related to your business or career.  Hence one should make the best of such occasions, considering them as an investment or enhancing public relations.
Love: You are tired of the same-old-same-old. Routine in love will be your worst enemy this year so do not let yourself get stuck in a love-rut. No matter how attached you are to your methods, daily habits will get you down and you’ll have the desire to change everything in your love life, including people. Old habits are hard to break but you can do it easier with love. Perhaps it’s time to make extensive plans to take a romantic trip together to break the monotony. It does not need to be an expensive or lengthy trip, just something different. Your goal is to revive passion in your relationship. If you are single, do not get caught up in a relationship based on pity or drama just because you are feeling lonely. How will you find your soul mate if you’re wasting your time with the wrong person and their problems?  Instead of making plans for the future, live one day at a time. Profit from the pleasures that come within your reach, and you may find someone within that reach.
Dreams: As a Goat in dreams you symbolize abundance and mirth. Even to this day in some countries, a family’s wealth is determined by the number of goats they have in a heard. The phrase, “Stop kidding around” comes from the joyful antics of young goats known as kids. Let your inner-kid run wild in both your waking world and dream world. Your dreams in 2018 will focus on communication. You will see many aspects of yourself in your dreams. Get to know yourself better through journaling your dreams.
