It's the year of the Ox!

Thank you, merith, for your New Year's card! It made me feel already *much* more productive and active today. ^^

So, inspired by laurazel, I looked up my sign:


Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.


Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.


Home is where Oxen go to seek comfort, occasionally watching television or reading. They prefer the rural outdoors and spend the majority of their“home” time working in the garden or caring for the yard.


Oxen are strong individuals who overall are healthy and live long, fulfilled lives. However, they tend to work too much, rarely allowing themselves enough time to relax. Oxen could benefit from incorporating more non-work-related activity into their lives.


Oxen prefer work that is routine. They take a methodological approach to their tasks and excel in jobs that are specialized. Oxen possess a keen eye for detail and an admirable work ethic. They are more productive when allowed to work alone. Good career choices for oxen include:interior designer, painter, carpenter, quarry worker, archaeologist,horticulturist, mechanic, engineer, draftsman, banker, broker, real estate agent and army officer.


Oxen aren’t very sociable and rarely participate in group activities. They abhor small talk and won’t waste their time flirting. They will search long and hard for the perfect partner as change makes them uncomfortable. Whether due to an ox’s tendency to be overbearing or tendency to place blame on others, relationships with Oxen don’t always work out. When Oxen realize that partnerships involve two people and two points of view, satisfying matches are possible.

Oxen and the 5 elements

Metal Ox – Years 1901 and 1961

Like metal, these Oxen are amazingly strong. They’re extremely hard-working individuals who will do whatever is necessary to achieve their goals.They’re trustworthy, dependable individuals who are not likely to show emotion. They have difficulty interpreting the feelings of others.

Well, the Ox description also seems to be right on the mark. A few little things don't quite fit, but on the whole, yes. Add to that my western sign, the libra, and you get a very low-key, laid back, hard working, harmony seeking person.

But don't *ever* get me really riled up! ^^

in other words, avoid the black haru! (FB reference, if you didn't know)
