Ox Female and Goat Male
The Ox and Goat symbols in the Chinese zodiac are marked as opposites, which means that there may be plenty of friction within the relationship depending on the specific people who come together as well. The Goat may seem to irrational or even overemotional to the Ox, who is strong and practical in most situations, which can cause conflict and opposing thoughts about one another in friendships and in romantic relationships.
The two have the ability to make their friendship or romantic relationship work only if they are able to see past their differences and accept one another’s personalities as they are without attempting to change them "for the better" in their own minds.
Ox Female & Goat Male Compatibility
You are a couple that needs common efforts and change in order to coexist in peace and harmony. The male sheep has many romantic but over-idealized ideas in his brain, and he may be easily dissatisfied with the female ox’s systematic way of living. The female ox is a diligent realist who is calm, well-ordered and a good housekeeper. It’s hard for her to bear the male sheep’s reverie and immaturity.
The male Goat is a timid soul who can only benefit from the big, bustling personality of the female Ox, full of life and twice as large. She will excel at taking care of the daily routine, which the Goat loathes. His mind will then be free to wander, and as long as he can remember to give credit where credit is due for his astonishing degree of intellectual freedom, he is home free.
The male Goat is smart enough to appreciate how good he has it with the female Ox, and she in turn will thrive beneath the grateful attentions he will lavish upon her in return. Neither should feel too threatened at the loss of a freedom that translates out to loneliness for them. These two should settle down to make a happy home for themselves posthaste.
The match between an Ox man and a Goat woman is one of those rare ones which seem to have been made in the heavens. The main reason for this is that the male Ox answers deeply and firmly to the female Goat’s need of being cared for and looked after. He will be only too happy to offer her the lasting emotional security she needs to be content in a relationship. Add to this the Ox’s penchant for acquiring material comforts and financial stability and the Goat has all she can ever ask for.
The male Ox may have been attracted by the soft, cultured beauty of the female Goat on their first encounter but he will actually be delighted to find a woman for whom home and family relationships are paramount. Her warm, caring nature and penchant for presiding as a domestic goddess will seem to make his innermost desires come true. Each will give the other the emotional and material security that is so important for both these signs to feel fulfilled in love.
Likewise a relationship between the Ox woman and Goat man also gives a high priority to family relationships and responsibilities. This is particularly satisfying to a female Ox since she is also looking for a committed relationship which offers her long term love and emotional security. None of them are likely to be attracted to external stimuli and their idea of a perfect date will be a cozy dinner in front of the fireplace, away from the bright lights of the nightclub or the bar. Sex between the two is also likely to be a highly satisfying experience, wherein the Goat partner will bring in all the beauty his/her sensitivity and the Ox, all the wealth of his/her sensuality. Best of all both will understand and respond to each other’s need for material and emotional security.
Apart from homely comforts, both the Ox and Goat are avid lovers of the good things of life like delicious food, fine wines and nice dresses. In fact if resources are not a problem, the Goat can even spend a small fortune in tailored dresses and personal adornments. This trait owes not so much to a sense of vanity or love of spending but actually an inherent trait in the Goat to arrange things prettily. This suits the Ox partner quite well who is indeed quite house-proud and relishes the idea of having a comfortable, well-decorated home that others would appreciate and envy.
Ox Female and Goat Male Love Match
Things are not always as happy as it seems. The Sheep’s insecurity is reassured by the Ox’s strong and protective behavior, but the Ox has very high expectations of the Sheep in return. The Ox doesn’t appreciate the Sheep’s impulsiveness and the Sheep can be disheartened by the Ox’s demand for the Sheep to be diligent.
The Sheep’s artistic and leisure-inclined character can be quite stressful for the Ox, while the Sheep savors and enjoys life as the Sheep pleases. The Ox’s dutiful attitude to keep the house and family in order causes the Ox to reject the Sheep’s indulgent lifestyle, which is very deterring because the Sheep must be loved and appreciated for the Sheep to do his or her best.
The Sheep is artistic and must wait for the right time to be inspired, while the Ox scorns at the Sheep’s soft ways as the Ox feels that time must not be on petty things like this. For this relationship to work, drastic compromises are needed, if the Ox can be more considerate of the Sheep’s sensitivities.
The chief hurdle to a compatible relationship between the two signs appears to lie in their vastly different temperaments with the Ox being practical and down-to-earth and the Goat given over to emotions. The female Goat is likely to be a woman who wishes to be romanced with love poems, red roses and an anniversary of the first time they exchanged kisses. The male Ox may on the other hand may perceive such indulgences as useless and perhaps even embarrassing; more importantly the Ox would probably find the mood swings of the Goat partner incomprehensible and tend to keep away instead of seeking a closer emotional connection.
Yet another source of conflict between the pair could be in the matter of finances. In keeping with the Goat’s love of pretty things, he/she may be prone to buying clothes, accessories and other adornments which an Ox partner might find unnecessary and wasteful. Despite their love of sensual delights, the Ox likes to be careful in their expenses and is apt to be suspicious of extravagant and impulsive shopping.
Another aspect of the Goat’s aesthetic sense is a bent towards perfection. This character is very particular in completing every goal or project in the best way possible and is especially adept at granting a keen eye to details and minutiae. Unfortunately the Goat also has a tendency to apply to others the same high standards they set for themselves as a result of which they can be rather critical in their words. This exacting nature is unlikely to go down well with a partner, especially with someone as stubborn as the Ox who would hate any nagging or hectoring. Driven to exasperation the Ox partner may even lash out in rage and angry words which in turn would deeply wound a nature as sensitive as the Goat’s. In these ways certain inherent traits in the Ox and Goat could make them mutually incompatible.
Also both being reticent and socially-withdrawn, the Ox and Goat couple might at times feel a lack of excitement in the relationship which in extreme cases may even lead the each to drift away from each other. And yet chances for this happening are quite rare since both see eye-to-eye where love, intimacy and commitment are concerned. Each is sufficient for the other and the two will remain happy in their own romantic world.
