When is the year of the Goat
We are accustomed to think that the signs of the eastern horoscope change from 31 to 1 January. But this is an erroneous statement. Since the eastern horoscope originated in China, the transition from one Sign to another occurs in the Chinese New Year.
Chinese New Year will come on February 19th. This is the first day of the new year according to the eastern calendar, and this means that the symbol of the year, the Blue Wooden Goat, will enter into its rights only from that day. By the way, the Chinese do not have a specific day for celebrating the new year.
Every year they celebrate this holiday on different dates. Usually, the Chinese New Year comes between February 21 and 21. The date is calculated in accordance with the lunar phase.
So, the eastern new year comes on the second new moon after the winter solstice.
Chinese New Year is called «Chunjie», which means «Spring Festival». This is the longest holiday in China, it lasts for 15 days and ends with the Lantern Festival. The main tradition of the last day of the celebration of the new year is to launch sky lanterns.
By the way, this tradition is gradually moving to us.
It should be noted that in China the new year is celebrated with a special scale. And if we don’t pay so much attention to the symbol of the coming year, then in China it becomes the main character of the holiday.
New Year of the Goat, according to the eastern horoscope, will officially begin on February 19, but this is not a reason to refuse to honor the symbol of the year in our new year, January 1. If you want to attract good luck in the new year, then prepare in advance for the celebration of the holiday and the arrival of the Blue Wooden Goat.
Meet the New Year of the Goat with all honors, and then it will bring you good luck and prosperity! Good luck and don’t forget to press the buttons and
