The meaning of Goat in dream | Dream interpretation
Enemies, trials and deceit (Artemidorus). An emblem of lewdness and wickedness in Christian symbolism.
Traditionally a symbol of virility, and so if a goat appears in a woman’s dream, it can be linked to a lover she desires, or to fertility and procreative power.
Similarly, if a goat appears in a man’s dream, it attests to the amount of importance he ascribes to his virility and, in context with the rest of the dream, should be interpreted in this way. It can also suggest the ability to ‘climb’ and survive difficulties, personally or socially. Occasionally it is connected with natural drives which, if they become repressed, are associated with the devil.
If the goat is attacking, this may indicate somebody butting into your life or some form of conflict.
Able to digest almost anything, which may indicate lack of judgment. Getting to the root of the problem; clean up negativity that is blocking progress. Using someone or something as a scapegoat, not accepting self-responsibility.
A dream concerning goats is a warning against involving yourself in any venture or activity which is not strictly cm the up and up; the warning is especially strong if the dream featured milking a goat.

The wild goat conveys an idea of freedom and agility. The male goat represents sexual potency. Some people associate this animal to the devil. The latter, of course, has negative connotations; it states that you are judging and condemning yourself.
This animal has a negative esoteric interpretation in either case. Thus, owning a goat is announcement of discomfort; milking it indicates family illness; slitting its throat, misery. The only exceptions to this negative aspect are represented by the white goat, which promises luck, and by owning a large herd, an indicator of wealth.
When interpreting dreams with goats in them, consider the characteristics that we associate with these animals. We consider them to be sturdy and tenacious. Historically, lambs are sacrificial and when we place blame on an individual we may call him a “scapegoat.” Additionally, in pagan mythology goats are considered to be symbols of sexual vitality. Look at the details of your dream and see if you can connect any of these characteristics to yourself or someone else in your daily life. See Also: Animals
