Zodiac OX

Chinese Zodiac OX

The Ox is the second sign of the zodiac. Like the Rat, the ox is a power sign, meaning it exudes strength and has a dominant character.

Characteristic of an Ox

According to the horoscope, the New Year is heralded by the year of the Ox. People born under the years 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, and 2009 are said to be positive, kind, logical, caring souls who are not into daydreaming. Ox people have their feet planted firmly on the ground. Preoccupied with achieving a sense of security, those born under the year of the ox are hard workers who toil hard and long to achieve comfort and stability for themselves and their family.

The majority of individuals born under the years mentioned above are quite intelligent, individualistic, stubborn and strong minded. They are tenacious, self sacrificing and relentless when in comes to work and labor. But the ox is not merely brawns; they have a very active mind that is capable of reflective thought and intelligent meanderings.

Love Guru

Have you ever seen a noisy ox? Not really; that's because oxen are not party animals. A person born in the year of the ox is one who is homely. Oxen do not like crowded and noisy parties. They do not normally have tons of friends. Ox people have few friends who are carefully selected and close-knit.

They like to chat and have an occasional laugh with partners and friends but rarely express their true feelings when it comes to love. Before approaching a potential love interest, oxen usually think and rethink their possible actions before taking the plunge. Once in love, the ox is dedicated for life; that is why they make for very loyal husbands and lovers. Unfortunately, though, they can drive their partners crazy because of their dominant and controlling attitude.

An ox is very compatible with a snake, a monkey and a rooster but the best partner for an ox is those born on the year of the pig because they have similar interests.

Looking Forward

An ox symbolizes labor, and steadfastness. The zodiac Ox has to be industrious and patient to attain his or her goals. Liken the year to an ox plowing a rice field and you well get a clear vision of what lies ahead. Slow and steady, yet rewarding and emanating strength while demanding respect.

A symbol of agriculture and spring, the year of the ox is the year of the negative and dark, yet feminine; so the ox likely to be more organized. To succeed on a personal level, a person must act prudently and with careful deliberation.

The ox is the eternal symbol of perseverance and endurance. Do not balk the moment you encounter an obstacle or difficulty. Instead persist and be vigilant; be pragmatic and avoid daydreaming. The great thing about the ox year is that at the end of this arduous year you will be inundated with the fruits of your labor that are both lasting and even more valuable.

Other Zodiacs and the Ox

People usually misconstrue that being born on the same zodiac year as the current year makes you lucky. If you were born in the year of the Ox, you are currently very much attuned to the energy of the Universe. Therefore, this creates a negative polarity of powers, which may be calamitous for a ox person. Obstacles and setbacks will not be uncommon.

The goat is the exact opposite of the Ox. This contradictory potency will have a stressful and problematic on a Goat's year. The horse and ox also clash, so, again, the year won't be so good for them either, as there is what is called a "harmful clash". Additionally, the dragon can have a destructive clash with the Ox year.
