Year of the Goat or Sheep
People born in the year of the Goat or Sheep turn flaws into strengths and strengths into flaws. That is because the Goat has such a powerful inner force that it is capable of reversing any situation. Also, they are often unpredictable and surprising, so one should never underestimate them.
The Goat is a solitary sign. Just like the animal it represents, it always looks for lonely paths in search of inspiration and dreams. The Goat or Sheep is always dreaming, although it's not often that we're able to enter the deepest part of its soul. These people are reserved and shy and can sometimes seem weird.
But on the inside, they are pure and tender. They live their dreams and hopes in an introspective way and try to develop it with a lot of ingenuity. They know how to overcome difficulties while exploiting their creative nature. Although it is not the most common part of their personality, the Sheep can really shine.
Nobility is another of the Goat's main traits, so they are faithful and honest people with whom we can establish a stable and rewarding friendship. Because of the Sheep's introspective nature, they can easily collapse and tend to be pessimistic and sad.
Their personality depends on the element that influences their sign:
Those born in the year of the Goat or Sheep in years ending in 0 or 1 are influenced by the Metal element: creativity and shrewdness. This can lead to a certain complacency that makes them relax and, in the end, that has negative consequences. But metal also offers Goats, in return, faithfulness, and rigour.
Water is the element that influences Sheep born in years ending in 2 or 3. This Yin element influences the Yang of the Goat, complementing its peaceful nature and making it more balanced. However, it can result in excessive tranquillity that makes them slow and overly calculating.
Those born in years ending in 4 or 5 are influenced by Wood, and that means greater stability, harmony, and temperance. These Sheep are excellent mediators because they never lose their composure, possessing great elegance and diplomacy. The con here is that sometimes Wood can make the Goat or Sheep's personality contradictory.
The Fire element that influences the Goat for those born in the years ending in 6 or 7, provides the natives with excess energy that makes them overwhelming people at times. They are very nervous and act hastily and try to resolve their contradictions with attitudes that can lead to a certain type of aggressiveness.
When a Goat or Sheep was born in years that end in 8 or 9, this person is influenced by the Earth element, which reinforces their bond with nature. The Chinese zodiac Goat tends towards stability, is reluctant to make changes and is a homebody that likes safe places. All this is reinforced in the Earth element, which makes this Goat or Sheep prefer comfort.

Goat or Sheep personality
The Goat needs to feel protected and pampered, and that is why this animal falls in love easily. Those born under this sign are cuddly and affectionate, tend to fall in love quickly and are very sweet in new relationships. They are thoughtful, so if you want to win a Goat or Sheep's heart, a romantic detail such as a dinner, jewellery or flowers, should do the trick.
Professionally speaking, the Goat's weakness is their lack of organization. Also, they are not conscientious workers and are easily distracted. That's why they don't usually meet deadlines.
Goats are good in creative and intuitive tasks, but be careful: they don't tolerate continuous changes well because it makes them emotionally destabilize and prevents them from giving the best of themselves. They prefer stable jobs where they can feel safe.
When Sheep show their most emotional side, they usually complain and whine. In the end, however, it is impossible not to feel sweet compassion for them, for they are endearing people who only need understanding and affection.
Chinese zodiac compatibility
The most compatible signs with the Goat in the Chinese Zodiac are the Rabbit, Horse, and Pig.
With Rabbits, the Goat (Sheep) has a beautiful relationship and can establish fruitful unions both professionally, as well as in love and friendship. Their ability to communicate is very fluid, and they also share very similar and complementary points of view.
With the Horse, they share interests, projects, hopes, and dreams. The Horse manages to awaken the Goat's need to dream, revitalizing their inner world and enhancing their best skills.
Finally, the Goat or Sheep has a good relationship with the Pig, especially in love relationships, for both are loving and affectionate. The Pig can give the Goat the emotional shelter this person needs when this animal feels sad and helpless.
The lowest levels of compatibility, however, occur with the Tiger, the Monkey, and the Dog.
Although the Tiger and the Goat share the same sense of diplomacy that makes them both respect each other, one thinks the other is wrong and vice versa. Therefore, with an obvious communication problem, these Chinese zodiac signs can never agree.
The Goat just can't stand the Monkey, so they are 100% incompatible. In addition to not being able to stand each other at work, they don't like each other physically and are unable to maintain a lasting love relationship.
But the least compatible sign is, without a doubt, the Dog. Its point of view, the traits of its personality and behaviour are the opposite. They are totally unable to establish steady relationships.
