Snake - Goat Love Compatibility in Chinese Astrology


The Snake and Goat, while such radically different creatures in the animal world, share quite a few similar traits in Chinese astrology like a love of home and leisurely pace of life. And yet their romantic compatibility is average in nature since the relationship is also likely to suffer from a lack of dynamism or initiative that neither possesses.

High points of a Snake-Goat love match

This zodiac pair will probably come together in their shared interest in the finer things of life. Both the Snake and Goat are lovers of sensual pleasures and are attracted to things in which the senses take delight like good food, nice clothes and even artistic pursuits like music. 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. While the Snake may be motivated differently, he/she too has a highly discriminating nature. At any party or social gathering, the guest who is most elegantly dressed, who samples the chocolate truffles appreciates the champagne with the greatest degree of awareness is likely to be a Snake. He/she is apt to engage in polite social discourse and impress others with their high level of sophistication. Thus the Snake and Goat will enjoy common tastes and pamper each other with similar indulgences in a relationship. This bond of mutual interests will go a long way in strengthening their romantic bond since when couples do enjoyable things together, they are more likely to remain with each other in the long run.

Likewise, another equally strong reason for the Snake and Goat staying together comes from the mutual attachment to home. This is more so in case of the Goat who takes immense pleasure in domestic comforts and interests. While the Snake is not as home-bound as the Goat, he/she will still prefer to bask in sun in their own garden or terrace instead of going out to party at a nightclub or a bar. Also the Snake can be quite particular about getting the best of food and drinks and so a homely partner as the Goat suits him/her who can cater to such indulgences of the Snake. Essentially both are alike in their social inclinations – while neither is unfriendly and in fact can even lay claim to a measure of social popularity, each is comfortable in intimate and familiar surroundings instead of hankering after novel and external stimulation.

Then again the Snake and Goat also serve to complement each other in a relationship. The Goat is quite an emotional creature and can be quickly upset by the vagaries of life. On such occasions, the Snake partner with a steadier mind and greater self-possession can help the Goat to find his/her emotional moorings. On the other hand the Snake can be susceptible to extremely jealousy when allied to restless or straying partners like the Horse or Monkey. However the Goat with his/her total and emotional submissiveness will give the Snake no reason to give way to negative feelings.

Challenges of a Snake-Goat love match

Both the Goat and Snake have different levels of inner stamina. The Snake is much stronger and more courageous, persistent than the Goat; even though it is not always evident on the exterior, the Snake is capable of feeling things with great intensity which is why it is often known to be a jealous or at least a highly possessive lover. When there is lack of mutual trust and understanding between the partners, such intense emotions on the part of the Snake can sometimes overwhelm a softer being like the Goat. The latter might find him/herself wilting under the heat of their partner’s intensity and in fact the Snake is not even above some shrewd emotional manipulation when it can suit their needs. In the end the excessive emotionality might drain away the life force from the relationship and goad them hurt each other to the point of no return.

However a far more likely cause of unhappiness in the Snake-Goat relationship may be a lack of dynamism. Both the Snake and Goat are rather low-key personalities and each likes to be left to him/herself for most of the time. Thus neither will be able to provide to the other the input that is needed to express themselves to the full and that a far more assertive personality like the Dragon or the Monkey may have brought about. While this may not cause the Snake-Goat couple to break up, it could leave them with a sense of something wanting in the relationship and in case things get worse, it could also lead either partner astray.
