Those who are born in the year of the Goat love being in a group but don’t want to be the ones who have all the attention. They are the quiet type who enjoy reflecting and thinking of deep things.

Friendly and gentle, many people will love them but they need to be careful about whom they trust. Goats are usually in a good disposition and want the finest things.

The year of the Goat in a nutshell:

  • Goat years include: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027;
  • Strengths: Independent, responsible and impartial;
  • Weaknesses: Rushed, obstinate and undiplomatic;
  • Blessed careers: Education, Writing, Dancing, Healthcare and Sales;
  • Perfect partner: Someone who is as thoughtful and perceptive as them.

The easier that Goat natives will be able to go over their shyness and pessimistic attitude, the more they will succeed in life.

A creative personality

Goat people seem to be in love with life and like being positive. If stressed about a situation, they will start to be emotional and even vulnerable. However, they will never give up their own opinions, no matter how much others won’t agree with them.

They’re devoted to the ones they love and all the time open or communicative about their own impressions. Don’t expect them to sugar coat someone or to tell a lie.

Because of this and their attentive nature, many people will have great love for them. It’s very likely they will be best friends with their mother.

Don’t think that if they’re confident, they also want to dominate. On the contrary, their way is about being gentle and kind in nature. Because they don’t mind finishing what others have started, their colleagues and superiors will also love them.

But whatever you do if you happen to be around them, allow their creativity to be expressed. Goats can charm anyone with their elegance, artistic tendencies and fondness.

While imaginative and very fragile, they will manage to attract others by being mannered and very charming.

These natives are great followers because it’s not in their nature to lead and to take the initiative. Their type is more about being protected and kept away from what this cruel world can do.

Most of them are domestic people who crave for their own comfortable home. It doesn’t matter if men or women, they will be very good with the household chores.

Expect them to tend to their garden, make jam, cook for the family and arrange a very comfortable environment for the ones they love.

Believing in tradition and the old methods, they will always be elegant and perhaps listen to classical music a lot. They want to have it easy, so they’ll more likely buy all kind of technology to make their life simpler.

At the core, they’re really insecure and need the love and protection of others. It’s easy for them to attract problems even if they avoid confrontation and don’t hurry to make the big decisions very fast.

It’s the fact that they choose to go with what’s not so mainstream that causes them trouble.

When it comes to their relationships, either of friendship or of love, Goat individuals have many acquaintances but only a few friends. This is because it’s not normal for them to get too intimate with people before they completely trust or because they’re too afraid of getting hurt.

Either way, they will always keep their friendships for a lifetime. They’re all about family and want to be part of a clan in which everyone loves each other, and the atmosphere is peaceful.

These natives are great dreamers even if they worry too much and adopt a pessimistic attitude from time to time. It’s normal for them to sometimes procrastinate because they have a laziness that can’t be seen in others.

They’re the type who would marry for money just to have a peaceful and financially fulfilling lifestyle. Goats want to look good because it makes them feel more stable.

If they’re not happy with what they’re seeing in the mirror, they won’t even go to take out the trash. Because they can’t make a decision as easy as others, they will think of looking into tarot and other fortune telling methods.

They’re definitely not good with business because they’re too messy. However, they could do great things with their hands or write amazing stories for others to read.

Goat’s love traits

It’s easy for those born in the year of the Goat to fall in love, so it’s possible they’ll be attached to more than one person at a time.

If they really want to be with someone, they can endure any kind of situation that isn’t advantageous to them and continue with the relationship without complaining.

But if they somehow feel they’re not being wanted, they immediately start looking for someone else.

In the everyday life, these natives are happy with what life throws at them, but only if things are going smoothly and they don’t have any problem.
