Bible says that goats are thought to be unrighteous, selfish, and evil. In The Matthews Gospel, God separates sheep on his right hand, and goats on his left hand.
It is known that, when the Judgement day comes, He will put the good on right, and bad on left. Goats are symbols of disobedience, evil, and anathema.
If you saw goats in your dream, this is the right place to figure out what it could mean!
Goats are known to be free, capricious, headstrong, not very good followers, more like leaders.
Unlike sheep, which are part of a flock and follow one leader, goats are always by themselves and can’t accept anyone to be their leader. Instead, leadership always belongs to them.
That said, Bible marks goats as the ones who won’t listen to God’s voice nor will follow Him because their nature tells them not to.
Meaning that it is in their nature to be disobedient and a metaphor for a goat is being on the left side of Christ which results in swimming in a Lake of Fire.
Of course, not every explanation of seeing a goat in your dream has a negative connotation.
However, let’s look at some of the most common ones.
Generally, seeing a goat in a dream may represent future gain, fortune, or success. They are symbols of wealth, strength, and health.
However, it depends on the color and situation in which you saw the goat.
Usually, these animals are mirrors of ourselves and how we see ourselves. Depending on a feeling you had during the dream, goats can symbolize several things.
Seeing a black goat in a dream
If you saw a black goat in your dream, it means that you have an opponent who will stand in your way.
Maybe there is someone who works with you that makes a potential threat for you because their work overshadows your own. Keep working hard and don’t let other’s success stay in a way of your own.
Also, there is someone who will take all privilege and recognition that you have wanted for a long time. At first, you will feel envious, but in the end, your ego will start working on becoming better and you will seek advice from people who achieved their goals.
On the other hand, it could mean that someone you trust will let you down. It can be a colleague you trust that will secretly talk behind your back.
Seeing a black goat can also represent great success that you want to achieve someday. Currently, you are at the beginning of your career, but you have big plans and you are strong enough to accomplish them.
Dreaming of a white goat
Light animals often symbolize the good potential for achieving inner peace. They are in tune with nature and represent the power of staying calm.
It may be that period of stability and calmness is coming your way. These days you will stop all the negative thinking and focus on yourself and the bright side of your life.
Stop complaining and appreciate everything you have. Not only will you feel happiness out of nowhere, but also good things are about to happen. Someone will decide to surprise you and brighten your day.
Speaking of a white goat, it indicates richness and fortune. You will have many positive aspects of your life and will live the way you always wanted to.
Seeing a white goat means you will be financially stable and able to complete unfinished work.
Dreaming of running from goat
Dreaming of a goat running toward you while you try to escape from it, means that you will feel embarrassed in a short period of time.
You will be ashamed in front of a big crowd and probably feel unpleasant. However, you can always turn it into a joke and stop being self-centered, but rather open and free from negative thinking.
Maybe you think your appearance is not so well amongst people, or you are afraid that you will be embarrassed by simply being yourself. You have to stand up for yourself and change your behavior by giving yourself a chance to be different.
If you escaped from a goat, that means you will be in an unpleasant situation, but you will be able to escape it as you did it with a goat.
On the other side, if you get caught by the goat it means you will think about that situation for a period of time and that thoughts will constantly haunt you.
Dreaming of shearing a goat
This dream indicates that your hard work will pay off. You invested a lot of time and money into something that will finally grow yield even though no one believed that you will succeed.
Shearing a goat often represents a stable future and you picking fruits from hard work.
In near future, you will prove you were right about something nobody believed in. For that reason, you will regain your recognition among people who didn’t want to take your opinion into account.
Dreaming of someone else shearing a goat
Someone will become your partner and help you with your work. Not only will you have benefits, but also you won’t have to waste your energy on finishing everything by yourself.
Seeing someone shear a goat means that you will make a good decision about your work and that decision will bring you benefits.
Maybe you will meet new associates and make a team for growing your business, or you will sign an agreement which will bring you a higher salary.
Dreaming of holding a goat by his horns
When it comes to fighting with a stubborn person, the best option for you is to just give up and leave it alone. Sometimes you can’t go against unreasonable statements which will only leave you irritated.
You constantly have to fight with someone and you are desperately trying to prove your point of view. However, you can’t seem to find the right way of approaching that person and that makes you powerless.
That argument can lead to breaking up the friendship and the only way to stop that argument is for you to let it go and let that person win if you care about them. Otherwise, nothing good will come out of a fight with a strong-headed person.
Dreaming of buying a goat
This dream indicates your worries about your future and family. You are concerned about someone’s well being and you would do anything to help them get better.
Probably some of your plans are not going the way you wanted them, but nothing can stop a man who has faith and is ready to do everything in order to achieve their goal.
Maybe you don’t like decisions brought by your partner or you can’t make one. Things take time so you have to be patient and don’t rush.
Sometimes people make promises they can’t fulfill. Maybe you have a hard time admitting that you are not able to do something you promised you will because you don’t want to let that person down.
Dreaming of gifting a goat to someone
You have to stop judging people by their financial status and look. It is time to start seeing the real qualities of someone and forget about unimportant characteristics that don’t describe personality.
Judging people by their achievements is not a good way to go. There is plenty of people who can offer you many good qualities which include true friendship and partner for life. If you stop judging people by their status, maybe you will finally find what you need.
Gifting a goat to someone means that you are trying to buy people and that you are not who you really are with them. Stop showing yourself as a superior and start respecting others for who they really are.
Otherwise, you will lose your close friends and eventually end up alone.
Dreaming of someone giving you a goat as a gift
This implicates you won’t get what you deserve after hard work. You expected a lot more than you received and it will make you wonder if you gave it all into work, or your hard work wasn’t enough.
Sometimes life is not fair. However, hard work always pays off. In near future, you will eventually get what you deserve and all the work will be paid off.
So don’t worry about your boss not praising you for everything you’ve done because it will all fall into the right place.
Dreaming of eating a goat meat
Organizing dinner and inviting your close family to a meeting is just what you need right now. Having goat meat for a meal in a dream means that you need support and you will find it with your family.
You will evoke old memories and be truly happy for seeing people you love after a long period.
Everything will feel safe and home-like and everyone will be happy to see you and spend time with you.
It’s time to enjoy life and accept help from the ones who want the best for you.
Dreaming about a wild goat
This dream implicates your wild nature and the need for adventures. You are a very enthusiastic person with lots of wishes and desires for traveling, making friends, and enjoying good vibes.
Maybe you will unexpectedly go on a short trip with your friends or you will organize a big journey to the place you always wanted to visit.
The wild goat represents your suppressed wishes and is a symbol for getting out of a box. You need to live life the way you want it to be and not by the rules created by people who have a strong influence on you.
You are a person of a brave spirit and you need to let your fears go. You have the strength and you are brave which means you can do everything you want, even the things you thought of as impossible.

Little goats are a symbol of predisposition for becoming a strong person. Even if you are in a weak state, this dream tells you that you will grow and become a better version of yourself.
However, you need to take care of yourself and be aware of your insecurities which stand in your way.
Also, this dream may tell you that you have people who care about you and want the best for you. It can be your close friend, partner, or parents.
Another thing is that this dream can be a warning that you are neglecting someone who needs your help. Baby goats are vulnerable and need attention so think about that.
