Goats need friends and loved ones to look out for them and warn them of scam artists or other people who may try to take advantage of them.
In general, Goat people do better in interdependent relationships. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Goat are natural nurturers, who enjoy taking care of their friends and family with lots of love and emotional support, but Goats need help also. They live in a realm of emotion and creativity, and aren’t always able to be practical when it comes to holding a steady job or managing a budget. Therefore, Goat people do best when partnered with a more practical mate who would benefit from the Goat’s sensitive qualities.

Even more than other Goats, Wood Goats are vulnerable to manipulation. They are so generous with their time and so sympathetic to the plights of others that unscrupulous people may try to use them for their own ends, and the naive Wood Goat will fall for it. Wood Goats may end up spending all of their time and energy of someone with a string of sad stories, even to the neglect of themselves and their own family. It would very much benefit Wood Goats to cultivate the ability to take a step back and evaluate these claims from others, so that they don’t burn out taking care of other people who don’t really deserve or need it.
