In honor of the Chinese Year of the Sheep/Goat/Ram that began February 19, 2015, I’m dedicating the 2015 Mandala of the Year to the Goat. Each month we’ll explore a trait or symbol of the goat to explore how we can incorporate it into our own lives.
For Section 8 we look at the goat energy of grounded.
What does it mean to be grounded? In many of the circles I hang out in, we often talk about how we need to stay grounded, that the energies around us can and do keep us off-balance otherwise.
So when I look how these goats manage to calmly climb the sides of mountain cliffs and walls, I’m inspired by their grounded-ness…their amazing ability to fearlessly traverse what appear to be gravity-defying places.

In the great words of Casey Kasem:
Keep your feet on the ground while reaching for the stars.
Ponder this while coloring this month’s section of the 2015 Mandala of the Year.
