The Year Of The Ox - Good, Bad or plain Ugly?

I don’t know about you guys but this year seems to have been nothing but trouble. the Year of the Ox certainly hasn’t brought much luck this year. There have been many deaths this year of both the famous, infamous and everyday people, a few of which I have known and lost myself.

So the question is this: How has this year been for you? Have you found it to also be a rather devastating and down right miserable year or have you had a different experience all together? If you could also mention your Chinese sign when commenting that would be great.

I myself am a Horse, not known to get on particularly well with the Ox. I will say this though, my personal relationship with my Fiancé has been getting stronger this year, but I think that’s because we have a ’solid as a rock’ relationship that not even an Ox can ruin! (No offence to Ox’s to be taken!!)

I look forward to hearing from you as always :) 

I would just like to say Rest In Peace to a friend who was taken suddenly from this World this morning. She hadn’t even reached 30 and had 3 children…she is gone and noone knows why! This has been the worst year I have ever known, and I’ve experienced some pretty tough times !

    I too am a horse and have found this year to be exhausting and miserable. This is my second year in college, and though it’s much better than last year, year of the rat, I’ve lost interest in my studies. I’m not doing well with classes. I broke off my relationship earlier this year and I’m having a hard time looking for a job, which I need since I don’t have a scholarship anymore. My family, more specifically my Sheep mother, have been driving me crazy.

    So, no. Ox has not been a good year for me. Thank goodness Tiger is just a few months away!

    I was born in a DOG year. I feel like i have been dog-paddling throughout 2009, just trying to stay afloat! Money has been a problem and three very dear people to me have died. Depressing, but I dont want to be depressed!

    Hi Haz and Joy, I am sorry you are both having struggles within this year too. Horses, Tigers and Dogs are the worst hit by the Year of the Ox, in fact today I am sadly attending a family members funeral :( But like you said Haz, the year of the Tiger will soon be upon us and this will bring us some very welcomed relief!

    Love & Light

    Horse + Virgo sun/Virgo rising/Capricorn moon - :-) hello!
    I think this Ox year has probably been brutal for most people.
    For my friends and acquaintances: one got cancer; many couples got divorced; many others lost their jobs; some shocking deaths (a friend of a friend’s 18-year-old son; an acquaintance’s triathlete husband).
    In my country: two devastating storms that caused death and destruction; new lows of government corruption.
    For myself: heartache, emotional turmoil, re-thinking and re-inventing how I deal with people. Very grateful I still have a job BUT I found out I’m getting paid half of what my counterparts are making.

    This year started as a fun filled adventure, I learned a lot, then it took a quick turn for the worst. I’m a hair and this became one of the most confusing and troublesome years of my life! I feel like it will make me stronger in the long run, but as an Aquarius, I have been over thinking all that has gone wrong and it has been giving too much trouble.

    Hey guys, i have to say the ‘Year of the ox’ has been PLAIN UGLY, HORRIBLE, DEPRESSING AND DOWN RIGHT IRRITATING for me and most of the people i know. I was born in the year of the Dog. This year has been the worst year of my life. Something traumatizing happened to me this year but in a way has helped me realize a lot of things. Still the year of the ox 2009 will definitely be a memorable year for me. Yes, many people have died this year, my friends or colleaques family members or relatives have passed away. My idol Michael Jackson died. Money seem to be the root of all problems. No one is particularly happy at the moment but i am looking forward to the year of the Tiger, i’ve heard nothing but good things that will happen to us Doggies haha, i pray and hope that its true. I feel the need to escape because i feel like im stuck in a bad situation, this year made me feel older physically and emotionally. I feel like it drained and sucked the life outta me. Im an aries dog though so i always believe deep down that everything will eventually be alright :)

    This year has been very troublesome yet surprising, for an Dragon like me.It felt like hardship was running after me and I seldom felt completley happy,and if I do get in a happy mood, it gets ruined almost the same day and I go back to my sulky self! Not to mention the misfortunes that hapepend in my family. but, I didnt think its becouse we’re in the year of the Ox, I though I brought bad luck hehe.
    I lost dear friends, some who parted from me to start their lives, others that drifted with time, lost a love I thought was meant to be…but even in this
    confusion and chaotic emotional disorders I’ve met a wanderful person and I hope My relationship with him will be as “rock hard” as yours with
    your Aquarius fiance`! I also noticed a sense of Idleness in the air, as if I’m stuck somehow , even though I’m moving forward it feels like I am in
    the same spot. did someone press the Pause button ? I thought 2009 will be a very lucky year for Libra’s and Aquarius! But I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary!

    Never mind the bad times, this year its at its end, Right now I just wonder what will next year bring

    For me this year has had its up and downs. It has definitely not been as bad for me as it seems to have been for the rest of you, but then again I’m a snake and should do well in the year of the ox. I have started a college in the USA (I’m from Finland), moved into an own apartment with my fiance, and I’m doing pretty good i school. Before school started I was working at home, had time to do horse-back riding 3days a week, and had time for my friends. So it has not really been a bad year at all up until recently, due to inner-turmoil. I’m simply not happy being in the USA. It is a much less caring environment than I am used to, everyone seem to care only about themselves. Still, I’m giving it a chance. All other things have been good this year for me.
    i feel sorry for everyone who’s having a rough year. Personally, I’m not looking forward to the year of the tiger as snakes and tigers tend to not get along…

    Ok, I thought it was just me…thank GOD, I found this sight. This year has been one of the worst years of my life. I lost my mom in January, my dad in July, my brother-in-law in Sept. and my aunt in November. That doesn’t account for the multiple other people I have known this year to pass away. I know I am not getting any younger and that these things begin to happen a lot more as you age, but seriously?? It’s not just been older people…it’s even been some younger friends of mine that just were taken all too soon. I am SOOOOOOOOO ready for the Year of the Ox to be ushered out of here! Things have just been rough all around this year, but honestly, the death thing has really made me nuts. I don’t know whether I am coming or going. I pray that this next year will be much better…I wish all of us horses a better time coming up….I will pray for us all as we count the days until January 1.

    My name is Brenda and I am a Pisces Tiger. I agree that this year has been the worst ever!!!!!! In my personal life I lost four family members and am also in the process of divorcing (an ox coincidentally). Financial matters have also taken a nosedive…it seems like I have to keep moving one mountain after another…it’s been pretty ridiculous.

    On a happier note, I met a pisces dog male and am very happy. The relationship is long distance and we see each other during my breaks. It seems like we’ve known each other forever. I also feel we will develop an unbreakable bond…just what I’ve been looking for in a relationship. We are truly great together, I’ve never experienced anything like this and I love it!

    Hopefully, all of the obstacles will be done with and we can look forward to a terrific 2010! I am sorry about your loss. I know how hard it is to deal with an unexpected tragedy. God Bless You and her family.

    First of all, I wanted to say this is the most accurate website I have visited regarding Chinese astrology. Nice work!

    Secondly, this has been a really awful year. I have been very sick, depressed, and I have lost many who were close to me. I am a horse, by the way. I can’t wait for this year to end and i’m hopeful next year will be better…can’t wait for the tiger!!

    None of Your Busines :) Says:

    Yes I agree, the Ox year has been ugly, as I am an Ox myself

    1) My good aunt JUST died
    2) Famous people died, Micheal Jackson, that Charlies Angels girl etc.
    3) This year has been hard

    But I don’t just think this happened ckuz it was an Ox year. Life moves on, people die every single day out of 100 billion people. Another thing is, this can be a sign for the Ox.

    This has been a very tough year for me and my family. I’m a Pisces/Rat and my boyfriend is a Sagittarian Ox, just broke it off with him. We had a long distance relationship which could never get off ground always arguing.

    My dear mother, Taurus/Tiger was diagnosed with Cancer Stage IV and has gone to her bones. She is a trooper and is fighting hard but I’m afraid I’m going to lose her soon. Keep your prayers going please.

    It’s been quite a devastating year for me and my family, career wise I haven’t had any luck trying to move up the ladder or find any other job.

    I pray and hope that 2010 will be a better year for all. Hang in there and continue to stay disciplined and positive.

    I will SURVIVE!

    I am an Ox and this year was a roller coaster very good on the professional side, very bad on the private and love side……………but it ends all good as I found someone three months ago so at the end I can only say that it was a positive Ox year for an Ox (aries) like me ! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for everyone.

    THANK GOD I stumbled upon this site! I thought I was the only one who thought this year has been a nightmare! For me (a dog), it has been a year from hell. Everything that could go wrong has and it has been full of hard work that hasn’t paid off yet and full of heartache. I don’t want to get out of bed most days. I’m hoping and praying next year will be the exact opposite.

    I am an Aries/Fire Dragon. The year of the Ox has been a rather challenging year for me. Lot’s of hard work, uncertainties, obstancle’s, stress, anger and mental exhaustion. I really feel like a hard working Ox this year. I have done nothing but WORK all year around! I felt very lonely this year. I feel out of place in my surrounding and confused about my future. Financially, I am drained, and have to look for a new job as my work contract ends Jan. 31, 2010.
    I am in a long distance love relationship. My Gemini/Ox bf and I broke up this summer, but, thanks god got back together a few month ago. Our relationship grew stronger, despite the fact that we have not seen each other since a year! It’s heart breaking to be away from someone for soo long. Financially, we are both unstable this year. We are hoping to get married next year. This is what we are working so hard for now. THe loss of M. Jackson was also a big shock.
    On the contrary I would like to add, I am surrounded by many Ox friends. Ox people are great friends to have. Who ever said that Ox and Dragon is a bad match, need to re-think. I love my Ox men with all my heart and soul, and want not exchange him for any other of the 11 signs. :) Happy Holidays to all!

    Taurus/Ox Says:

    This year has been wild- terrible time with my wife– a SAG (should have known) of 7 years. Looking for nice Virgo or Capricorn next? She filed for divorce; she suffers from mental illness (high functioning) but all her things from the past/childhood are now coming out. I was very sad and depressed but I realize that I can’t do anything about it. I do still love her but she seems headstrong about this. Even the divorce attorneys asked if this is really what she wanted to do. 2 kids (4 and 20 months), just built a home in 2007, good job, rental homes etc.

    Well, I am reconnecting with friends and family who stayed away due to her mental illness and just overall negativity. I’m sure I will be better off. She wouldn’t even agree to one more day for me to spend with the kids for New Years. I allowed her to have more time today instead of picking them up for dinner. That’s what I get for trying to be cordial. I just have to deal with this person with BPD for the next 20 years. Really wonder what happened to the person that I knew and loved- she seems long gone now. I’m sad to have married a farce- the mask came off in 2009.
