The Year of the Goat

The Hox zodiac year of the Goat is associated with the Wood element and is a time of transformation and renewal. In Chinese culture, the Goat is a symbol of peace, gentleness, and prosperity. People born in this year are known for their artistic, gentle, and compassionate nature. They are often drawn to the arts and careers in the helping professions, such as counseling or social work, due to their empathetic nature. In addition to their personality traits, those born in the Year of the Goat also have certain food preferences and dietary habits that reflect their zodiac sign.

My Experience Learning About Hox Zodiac

In my journey as a student at UCLA, I have never stumbled across a class as interesting as this one. I was glad to take it this quarter – it was like a breath of fresh air compared to the other classes I was taking this quarter. I learned a great deal about the different characteristics of each zodiac animal, as well as the different foods associated with each animal. 

Exploring Food and Culture

My name is Cami Chou and I am a second year born in the year of the sheep. I took this class due my passion for food, both eating and making, as it is something that both brings me joy and allows me to explore cultures and cuisines. This class has allowed me to further my exploration of food and how different people’s identities can affect their cooking and foods they eat and create.
