Who Is the Sheep Compatible With?

The Sheep, also known as the Goat, occupies the 8th number in the Chinese Zodiac sequence. They’re known for their calmness, intelligence, and being comfortable in their own company. But what’s their zodiac compatibility like with others?

See a full list of additional Resources at the end of the article.

The Sheep/Goat is compatible with the Horse, Rabbit, and Pig, as they’re natural soulmates to horses with lots of mutual love and support. Their compatibility with rabbits is high since both signs are sensitive and fun-loving. Sheep also tend to share a meaningful relationship with Pigs.

Goats are free-spirited and tend to attract people effortlessly. However, they’re not as social as some other signs, making them seem pretty hard to get. Keep reading to learn more about sheep compatibility with other Chinese zodiac signs!

Rabbit Compatibility

If you’re a Sheep and just can’t get enough of romance in your relationships, look for a rabbit soulmate. Both signs are imaginative enough to come up with the most butterfly-inducing ideas and sensitive enough to respond well to them.

But the Goat compatibility of a rabbit isn’t just through romance. Even as friends, the two signs always find ways to have tons of fun. Neither character is a nay-sayer when it comes to trying new things, thanks in part to their imaginative nature.

They’re easy to please and draw pleasure from sharing their happiness. So, a rabbit and a sheep can have a fun time with an activity as simple as painting. The rabbit isn’t overly ambitious, but thankfully, neither is the goat.

Together, the couple lives in the moment and always finds a way to make the best out of it.

Pig Compatibility

People born in the year of the Pig are known to be extremely honest, and the sensitive Sheep always has a special place in its heart for that quality. Together, these two signs form one of the happiest couples.

The goat’s imaginative tendencies make them one of the best signs to leave in charge of your home. Since pigs love luxury and nice things, the goat’s creativity around the house always finds a way to please them.

In return, pigs act as a reliable support system whenever the goats feel insecure due to their sensitive nature. They share a beautiful bond with lots of mutual respect, love, and favors.

Horse Compatibility

According to Chinese zodiac compatibility, all zodiac animals have one secret friend, and the Sheep’s secret friend happens to be the Horse. This means a goat and a horse share their highest possible zodiac signs compatibility in a relationship.

The horse is a natural hard worker, which goes well with the goat’s appreciative nature. A male horse is incredibly proud to be in charge of the relationship, and the female goat keeps him going with continuous support.

Horses are rigid and don’t let their guard down quickly, but goats’ empathetic nature encourages them to open up. On the other hand, the horse acts as a beacon of wise advice for the goat whenever it’s needed.

Both signs love each other unconditionally, even the flaws.

Primary combinations discussed:

  • Rabbit and Pig are “Three Harmony”, or “Elemental” combinations.
  • The Horse is a “Six Harmony” combination.
  • Bonus combination: Sheep + Horse + Snake = “Directional” or “Seasonal” combination. The Horse is the central figure, the Snake and Goat have no affinity otherwise.

Primary Clash: Ox

Goats are free-spirited signs. The Ox, on the other hand, is known for its practicality and always choosing the most logical option. Initially, they might be able to hit it off with each other since the Ox provides vital support to the sensitive Sheep.

However, the Sheep will eventually get tired of how the Ox always listens to their brain and never their heart.

As soon as the complaining begins, so does the potential demise of their relationship. The only way they can make things work is to understand and accept each other’s completely different outlooks on life.

The Sheep's Difficult Relationships

Sheep also aren’t great with the Rat and Dog signs. Goats love their alone time, and Rats aren’t necessarily the “peace and quiet” type of zodiac sign, but rather, they’re highly sociable. On the other hand, the Dog has a strong need for commitment, which can feel limiting to the imaginative Sheep.

Are Goat and Sheep the Same in the Chinese Zodiac?

You might have heard of the Year of the Goat, Sheep, and the Ram in the Chinese Zodiac. They’re all pretty similar animals, but do they all represent the same sign?

The Goat, Sheep, and Ram are all the same in the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese character for their year is “yang,” which can be translated into either animal, with Goat and Sheep being used the most. The Ram is preferred by people who don’t like the “weak” features associated with a sheep.
