Rat and Goat Compatibility
The Rat and Goat are a bit of a mismatch, but they can make a relationship work with some effort and understanding. The problem between these two results from their different needs and interests: Where the Rat is all about friends and social events, the Goat has an artist’s soul; the Rat might be found dancing at a night club or tossing around witty banter at a dinner party while the Goat is on a wilderness retreat, trying to find its inner self or just enjoying the beauty and solitude of nature.
As a Rat, you know how to hang on to your money. Other than your weakness for a good bargain, you have a lot of willpower and don’t tend to over spend. You usually end up handling the budget in a relationship and you enjoy being financially responsible and taking care of your family.
Your family is the most important thing to you. You do enjoy socializing, parties, and climbing social ladders to a certain extent, but the happiness and stability of your children and relatives is first and foremost in your mind. You like your home to be a steady, cozy, reliable environment and do enjoy evenings at home with the wife and kids. As loving as you are, you can be a bit of a nag when you become stressed or anxious.
You have a tendency to hang on to "stuff" that has sentimental value to you. Others may look at it as just "junk" and wonder how you can stand to have your house so cluttered. It’s important to you to hang on to things that have memories attached to them, and your house is usually meticulously clean, even if it is cluttered. Your major weak point is an inability to focus on just one task at a time. Your many projects suffer as you try to do them all at once.
Goats are dreamers, and you will be constantly irritated by the Goat who seems to go all day long without doing a single useful thing. In fact, Goats are very artistic and talented, but they have a hard time getting things done on schedule. It doesn’t matter whether it’s theirs or anyone else’s schedule; Goats are sensitive emotional types who need the mood to strike them. To your practical mind, this seems indulgent and wasteful, and your nagging type of encouragement does not really motivate the Goat to do any better.
Goats have an eye for decorating, and your house will be kept neatly, which pleases you. Goats have an eye for calming art, which can help you unwind after work. If you are the kind of person who doesn’t mind his wife in a very traditional role and only doing domestic tasks, this could work. If you are very concerned that your partner pulls her own weight in a relationship, you will have a hard time with a Goat.
Rat and Goat Love Compatibility
These two do connect at home, though; if they are in love, their bond is strong. The Rat surrounds itself with plenty of friends but always treats its loved ones with a special, tender generosity, which the Goat, being rather worrisome and overly sensitive by nature, will appreciate. Since it places high stock in family and home comforts, the Goat can make the house welcoming for the Rat to come home to after its social forays. The Rat may become a bit bored with the Goat’s emotional, dreamy nature, however, and the Goat may dislike the Rat’s constant scheming and its fast-paced lifestyle.
Rat Woman and Goat Man Compatibility
The Rat woman is often better with finances than the Goat man, which can help with keeping the relationship balanced and fair, especially if the Goat man generally contributes less financially, due to his dreamer and artistic personality. Because both the Rat woman and the Goat man are pessimistic by nature, this can lead to trouble when dating one another due to the inability to emotionally support and boost each other in times of need.
Rat Man and Goat Woman Compatibility
The Rat man is a thinker, and enjoys the mental challenges that the Goat woman may present in a relationship, especially when she feels there should be changes made between the pair. Although the Rat man appreciates the dreaming sense a Goat woman possesses, he may become irritated when the Goat woman is not productive or contributing to the household financially or even to the relationship.
