What is Astrology? It is the study of movements & relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world. Makes sense, because we're all made out of One source and therefore, we affect each other.

The goat is a powerful animal totem and closely related to the sheep, in particular the ram, but unlike the sheep & ram, goats aren't particularly communal, often grazing alone and spreading themselves far apart, evoking a sense of independence. When the goat ambles onto your path, it might be a signal to contemplate your power as an individual. Is it time to separate from the herd? Launch into an independent direction? Often times, the solitary path leads us to great discovery. Goats respect distance and space. They also encourage independent adventures and explorations of high vistas for the sole purpose of personal/individual knowing. More spirit animal info on this website.

"Perhaps the most poignant lesson of the goat is about sacrifice. In countless ceremonies throughout untold religions and times, the steadfast goat has suffered greatly at the hands of man. Consider the term scapegoat. This is originally a Hebrew word used when the people would attempt to cast their sins upon the animal, who was then turned out into the wilderness. Often the goat has been wrongly symbolized with the wicked, when truly the treatment of the animal represents the guilt and cruelty of ignorant civilizations." click here for more info.
