These two tend not to get along very well either because he sees her as too eccentric and uncaring, whereas she thinks that he’s rigid. The Goat woman has a creative mind and doesn’t like to focus on responsibilities.

The Ox man is her complete opposite. It’s good that they both like spending their time home, but this doesn’t mean their relationship has a strong foundation.

There are rare occasions in which something between may work, but only if the Ox man and the Goat woman are completely open to one another. She may appreciate him for being serious and honest, whereas he can learn from her how to be more accepting.

The Goat woman is irresponsible, which can drive the Ox man completely mad. They’re not a good match in the bedroom either, because while she likes being romantic and for him to court her, he doesn’t have enough imagination to offer her what she wants and is more sensual than interested in making her happy.

The Chinese zodiac suggests that they can learn a lot from each other, also that the Ox man can convince the female Goat to be by his side for a lifetime. However, in order for this to happen, he needs to understand her emotions and the fact she’s vulnerable.

She has to count on him more often than not. If the friendship between them is to be successful, it’s important that they work hard to make things work and don’t argue.

Their opposite personalities can complement one another if they’re giving their relationship a chance. The Ox man can be the one on whom the Goat woman is always counting.

He can protect her from the outside world, while she will be completely devoted to him, not to mention she will notice how many efforts he’s making for their relationship to work.

The Ox man will be the responsible partner who’s taking care of everything, the Goat woman will allow him to do what he wants and accept that she needs to be more cautious, just like he is.

The more she doesn’t feel trapped, the more their connection can be successful. However, if she wants more to express her own identity and to do only what she wants, they will eventually break up.

Overcoming certain challenges

It’s important that he uses his good judgment when having to make a decision and to keep her by his side. The Goat woman is very soft, but not at all disciplined. She needs to have her freedom respected too. More than this, she dreams of a luxurious life for which she doesn’t have to work at all.

She doesn’t mind playing the woman in her relationship, so she enjoys taking care of the home she’s sharing with her partner. Her intentions are always good and she’s very creative when it comes to decorating.

Besides, she’s fancy and pretentious, which is the opposite of the very practical Ox man. The relationship between the Goat woman and the Ox man can sometimes be difficult because he may end up realizing that he’s the only one doing the work, not to mention he may not appreciate her creativity.

When this is happening, she becomes resentful, especially if he tries to impose his discipline on her. He needs to have patience and to be understanding with her, while she has to be more responsible and to teach him how to have more fun.

It’s good that he’s patient and that she’s understanding. Their union can be a successful one if they’re both ready to make some compromises, and if he remembers that her feelings can be easily hurt.

Even when making some compromises, they both need to be happy with the decisions they’ve made, so they shouldn’t do what they don’t want just because the other wants them to.
