Those born under the Eastern Zodiac sign of Goat are best known for being calm, dependable, and well mannered. These are the few external traits that others can recognize soon after meeting a Goat. Inside, Goat are also creative, intelligent, artistic, and sincere. They like to spend a lot of time working things out in their own minds before sharing them with others, but when they do decide to share their thoughts they often have incredibly thoughtful ideas that others are surprised by. Though the usually quiet Goat uses its subtle charm and elegance to win over their peers, they are also often overshadowed in social situations by louder, more outgoing individuals such as the Rooster or the Horse.
Goat are delicate in many ways, though they don’t like others to think so. They care more than they will admit about what other people think about them, which is why many Goat like to dress nice and project a classic and stylish appearance. They like to keep things tidy and organized and find it difficult to concentrate when their environment is ugly, dirty, or out of order.
While Goat are perfectly comfortable having quiet time alone to sort out their thoughts, they are also more social than others initially think. They don’t feel the need to be in charge of groups, and often spend more time listening than speaking, but they like being part of social groups nonetheless, and will contribute when the time is right. Goat are good at letting others shine around them without being envious of the attention. In relationships they are sweet, gentle, and romantic, but also like to take things slow. Goat seem to attract more hotheaded signs that challenge them on many levels, which works because Goat also prefer when someone else makes the big decisions in their lives.
