OxThe Strong Ox

The Ox is Yin (female)

Ox years are: 1901 ~ 1913 ~ 1925 ~1937 ~ 1949 ~ 1961 ~ 1973 ~ 1985 ~ 1997 ~ 2009 ~ 2021.
This is a list of symbols that you, as an Ox, should surround yourself with as they will help you to become your true self and give you a feeling of happiness and comfort.

Tree - Pear ~ Food - Beef stew ~ Flower - Chrysanthemum ~ Fragrance- Shalimar ~ Birthstone- Lapis Lazuli ~ Number- 1 ~ Animal- Bear ~ Spice- Coriander ~ Herb- Sage ~ Drink- Strong Tea ~ Metal- Copper ~ Colour- Dark Blue.

Oxen, as their animal counterparts, are strong. Both physically and mentally. They are good solid workers who don’t have time for people less capable than themselves. These people can be thought of as stodgy and no fun. However, they often have hobbies that could make other people blush! It’s their way of getting away from the normal everyday rigor. And have even been known to have some quite hot love affairs!! As long as it’s not silly, the Ox does not like to appear silly.

Ox people get places, just perhaps at a slower rate than some of the other Chinese signs. But then the Ox takes pride in what he/she does and perseveres until the job is done. They do like power. In fact some seriously powerful and not to mention dangerous (among other words) leaders have been Oxen. Hitler and Saddam Hussein are both well known Ox’s. This does not mean of course that all Ox’s are set to rule and dominate the world, invade countries and kill lots of people, merely that they have the potential. But do not panic if you are an Ox, many famous writers have been born under the same sign, Ox’s love to write, and are incredibly talented.

To love an Ox you will have to understand that these people are not the Romeo’s and Juliet’s of the Zodiac. They will not be gushing. They can appear standoffish and aloof at times. To get to see the inside of this persons heart you must be as persevering as they are, and willing to wait. For the love of these diligent people may not come easy, but when it does it comes with a burning intensity that could put the Olympic torch to shame.

Ever heard the saying “As strong as an Ox”? These people are, of all the signs, live to a good age indeed these people have a strong constitution. But that doesn’t mean they do not get ill, in fact they are often hypochondriac’s but due to them being so mentally and physically strong the Ox can get over anything. Food, as for the Rat, is the problem here. Oxen are prone to being overweight and may also suffer from reddish patches mainly on their face and neck. These people need a healthy diet, full of fresh vegetables and fruit. They are frequently caught snacking which is no good for them at all. Their stomachs are their weak spots as again these people keep it all in and can end up with stomach ulcers.

My advice to any Ox’s reading this would be to stay away from the City. You’re not cut out for the turmoil and fast speed living it brings. A quiet country cottage is what you need, with perhaps your own vegetable patch? And of course, a padlock on the biscuit tin!

Ox’s are most compatible with: Rooster’s, Rat’s and Snake’s. But stay away from Horse’s and Tiger’s for they are matches made in hell.

    I am a bit curious. You have that Ox is compatible w/Rooster. But on Rooster you don’t list that… why?

    Hi Christy,

    Sorry about that. I wrote these posts when I first started this site and I didn’t really check through what I had written (Gemini Horse). I shall ammend my mistakes as soon as I can. But yes Ox’s and Roosters do very well together.

    Love & Light

    Hey Becky,

    In Chinese astrology, there are four OX cousins: Metal OX, Fire OX, Wood OX, and Water OX. There cousins are similar but also differ in certain ways. Any elaboration???

    Aly, Water-OX

    Hi Aly nice to see you here again!

    Metal : Very determined, stubborn, self reliant and motivated, never ever give up, even when they perhaps should!! strong will to succeed.

    Fire: Positive, strong, fiery, aggressive, use force to achieve things in life rather than anything else, confident, clever.

    Wood: Diverse, selfless, caring, co-operative, need support but will achieve great things.

    Water: communication, ability to make people understand, passive, flexible, intuitive.

    Sorry it is short and sweet. As I progress through the site I will be doing A LOT more to do with Chinese Astrology as it is a great passion of mine. Sadly I need more hours in the day.

    Love & Light

    So, are you saying a Pig child will have a terrible relationship with its parents, if its parents are a Horse or Tiger?

  7. 7
    Becky Says:

    Hi Frank,

    No I am not saying that at all. Why do you think that? This is the Sign of the Ox not the Pig. It always helps to know the signs of your children as it can help identify with who they are and understand their needs on a higher level. I am a Horse and my eldest daughter is a Rat. In China this is believed to be an awful match but because I know so much about it all it actually makes us so much closer.

    Love & Light

    I like this site, and it’s very helpful, but the misplaced possessive apostrophes are out of control!

    I’m an ox. I can’t help it. I’m a writer and yes, I need a padlock on my snack drawer.

    Hi there WK,

    I know, I know. What’s worse is that I have very good qualifications in both English lit and Lang. The thing is I am a Gemini Horse, so the more people go on about this fault of mine, the more I tend to leave my mistakes..childish yes..I will try and correct myself in the future, I know it’s frustrating, it frustrates me also!

    Thanks for your comment!

    Love & Light

    Hey Beck!!!

    Your advice on all OX to stay away from the City doesn’t seem to hold (no offense pls). As an OX, I lived for almost 9 years in one of the biggest cities of the world (pop. of more than 15 million people). Interestingly, it was utter chaos (as expected) but I enjoyed every moment of it because of its pace and the life it offered (big cities are mostly lively). The city never slept and never sleeps and it made you moving continuously to keep up with the pace. It was unique fun.

    Presently, I’m living in a much smaller city (pop. of 0.5 million people) and honestly speaking, it’s so boring and dull as hell but one has no choice but to contemplate and adjust with the situation. As an OX, I personally prefer action, movement, and mobility but when stimulus is not provided by the city, the social environment, or people; then we retreat in our small cottage but let me tell you it’s not fun unless if we have our intellectual pursuits.

    On the contrary, I agree with the writing part whether its prose or verses or songs (music). We love to think and write. And surely, we (at least me) are careless about food and tend to become over-weight (stomach ulcers seems like an exaggeration). We rarely fell sick (physically) and when we do, it’s terrible. However, the mental and physical strength of the OX makes it moving.

    Ox are not tyrants but some of them may have the capacity to be one because of their stubbornness, and inflexibility. But let me tell you as a water-OX, we like to be stubborn to pursue our own ideals rather than enforcing our ideas on others (fine if you like it and who cares if you don’t). Its better to be stubborn for your own good rather than having delays in initiatives and people telling you what to do and also making things run at a snail’s pace. Paradoxically, OX also has all the patience in the world but definitely it also has its limitations.

    I’m also exploring and interested in the intellectual side of the OX on which not much has been written except that they are practical, rational, meticulous, observant,intuitiuve, holding their feet firmly on the ground.

    Have a nice day.

    The year upon us is Ox (that’s great for us Horses after a Rat year, huh? :) ). The new US president is year of the Ox. Coincidence?

  13. 13
    Becky Says:

    Hi there,

    Let us hope that the new President is a nice friendly OX and not of the same type as Sadaam Husein and Hitler!!!

    Love & Light


    And yes for us Horses it is going to be a rocky ride, but as long as we keep are heads down and work hard it should be ok….eeeek!

    Beckie,You ought to check the facts. “Years and their Elements. There are five Elements: Metal, Fire, wood, Earth and Water.
    May I suggest you consult Suzanne Whites ‘Book of Chinese Chance’copyright 1976 where in she incorporates both the West and Eastern signs with far greater accuracy than simply Western or Eastern. Go to your Library. Also,most Chinese astrologers will have good info on their knowledge of Eastern study. In fact a far greater depth of study than the Wests astrology
    As you see, below, is incorrect.

    Be well,be happy

    Hi Aly,

    My Chinese astrology journey started many years ago and was all because of Suzanne White so I already know who she is and know her very well indeed. My intentions for this site are to start with the basics moving further into all aspects of astrology as the site is built, Combined Astrology, Moon signs, other planetary influences etc. But I think it is very important to allow people to first get a feel for astrology in the nude first. Yes, elements, you are correct, like you are a Water Ox I am an Earth Horse. For instance, My year of birth was 1978 which is the year of the Earth Horse, the following year 1979 was an Earth Goat, however the next Horse year which was 1990 was a Metal Horse, the Horse year after that was 2002, Water Horse and so it goes on through all the elements with only one exception which is that of the Fire Horse, which is only one every 60 years. All signs also come under Yin or Yang and this also interferes with their behavior in given years. The further you delve into Chinese Astrology the more intricate it becomes, there are many websites out there who deal in the hard and heavy facts but I like to remain easy to understand foremost rather than confusing people. Don’t worry it will all become apparent one the site is completed.

    As always Aly thank you for your comment.

    Love & Light

    Hi Dogett,

    Thanks for that! I am afraid it is very early over here and that was like reading a whole load of jumble to be honest, the website, not your comment! I really don’t think all that weird elaboration is necessary when consulting someone’s chart, but there are those who do so like to complicate things!!

    Love & Light

    Oh My you are so right about everything. I am an Ox this is the best description of me lol. I finally figured out I was not a City person it almost killed me. I was just saying to myself I need a cottage so that I could grow my own herbs and vegetable..couldn’t figure out how to grow the fruits I like. Sage is my favorite herb which I burn as incense.

    I wonder what is in store for people born under the year of the OX this year.

    I love writing and pondering not sure I should persue it but I probably will. I talk myself out of it by saying what do I have to say and who will want to read it. Not sure where I will start but I want to do it. I always wonder why isn’t another OX a match?
