The Ox, being the second zodiac as a result of the clever trick played by the Rat to get ahead and be the first to the Jade Emperor’s party, is known for industriousness and getting ahead through its perseverance rather than trying to cheat. These traits are tied into how the Ox is so important in agriculture. The Ox is connected to the Earthly Branch Chou and its hours are early in the morning from one to three. The most recent years of the Ox was 2009 and 1997 and the next is 2021.

Personality and characteristics

The Ox does not look for validation for the hard work that it puts in. Rather, it does the work for its own sake, and it does not seek a reward or attention. The diligence, intelligence, and humility of oxen make them well respected, despite not seeking out respect. Because of their ability to stay calm and think things through rationally, they have the ability to lead, and they expect others to commit themselves to their work and not slack off. Despite their dedication to working hard, they are good to others and can be depended on.

compatibility

Oxen get along with Rats, as Rats water branch complements Oxens earth branch well. Snakes and oxen are also a good match, as they find comfort in each other which helps facilitate a romantic relationship, and they make good business partners as well because of how they help each other out. Roosters match with Oxen well too, being that the reliable and trustworthy nature of Oxen makes them a favorite of the caring, sensitive roosters. Sheep are not a good match for Oxen, and while they will put up with each other, they will butt heads all the time. Oxen also match poorly with horses, who are too untamed in their hearts to be respected by the ever disciplined Oxen. As for Dogs, they will just never see eye to eye with Oxen, and there are always problems that stem from that.

health

Oxen tend to be in great physical shape, though this trend can make them careless. Because they seldom have to see doctors growing up, they can lack the awareness of how to stay healthy, which can bite them when they are older. Also, because they are so thoroughly devoted to their work, they can fail to get the proper amount of sleep and nourishment, and their exercise regimen also will fall short. This can lead to problems, especially as the inconsistency of their eating habits, which often involves eating excessive amounts to make up for not eating properly earlier, can lead to digestion issues. Despite their health as youths, Oxen are plagued with heart disease and strokes as they age, and they also often see pain in their joints as they do not move around enough. While being devoted to work is such a big part of their identity, Oxen would do well to cut back a little on the work front and focus more on their health.

career

For Oxen, careers should be stable and given full devotion, and choosing a career is not something to be taken lightly. They know the importance of making a consistent living which will provide support for their family, which is always a priority. This foresightedness makes them start early, working hard to succeed in school to lay the groundwork of success. However, they can not just take any job, and it has to be something they are passionate about in order for them to reach their full potential. As Oxen are so logical and reliable in high pressure situations, they make excellent attorneys, and those traits suit medical, business, and academic disciplines as well. Their devotion to their work also makes them great in technical jobs.
