OXEN ARE: industrious, patient, hard-working, methodical, reserved, proud, leaders, precise, silent and loners, long-suffering and self-sacrificing, strong and tenacious.
BUT THEY CAN ALSO BE: slow and loutish, grumpy and stubborn, sore losers, prejudiced, chauvinistic, bigoted, resistant to change, rigid, authoritarian, vindicitive, jealous, and sometimes violent.
With ox people, it’s always a good thing to stay on the good side of them. They are great detail-pickers and will watch every move you make. And they need order; everything must be in its own particular “spot.’
Oxen adore eating; as a result, they often struggle with keeping their weight down! But they DO have strict self-discipline and will embark on strict dieting.
These people have great memories, but are not overly sentimental.
Of all the Chinese signs, this one is blessed with the greatest longevity (for the most part).
Oxen: are prone to stomach troubles, are better suited to living in the country, and will work insanely hard..
Their sign color is dark blue, lucky number is 1, and their motto is “ I Persevere.”
