Apparently it’s both. Chinese culture recognizes Ram, Sheep, and Goat as all proper translations for “yang”- the mandarin term for this year’s animal symbol. As yang is the masculine half of the Taoist yin yang, you may assume our little goat/sheep/ram is male, but 2015 is actually a female year. Could we be in for some peace, tranquility, and love? Hope so.
Here is a picture of “Yang” from Streetfighter. Pretty sure this is what my year will look like.
