Ox Chinese Zodiac Sign

The sign of the Ox is one of solid fortitude and leadership through hard work. This second sign of the Chinese Astrology cycle is next scheduled to appear in January 2009 through February 2010. This sign is a  Yin sign and is roughly equivalent to the Capricorn sign in Western astrology. Other links that are associated with this Chinese sign include the colors of yellow and blue; the gem onyx and the element of Earth. The Planet Saturn is the focus planet for those individuals. The health issues for these people usually are centered in the spleen and digestive system.


Their love tends to be a silent rather than an oral experience. They prefer to demonstrate emotions rather than talk about them. Although they don’t  rush into a relationship and are never characterized as a flirt, they do want to be in a stable relationship. They are honorable in love and would not be likely to be unfaithful. They also expect that their partner will reciprocate their commitment to monogamy. Their dislike of change is the major factor in actively looking for a life partner. However, the relationship with them can provide a calm and peaceful haven for the partner.


The individuals born under the sign of the Ox Chinese Astrology can form strong pairings with other animal signs. Particularly, the Ox Rooster, love compatibility, Ox Rat love compatibility, or Ox Serpent love compatibility are all likely to be quite high. One pairing is known to be totally destructive to the Tiger. The battle that would ensue would destroy the Tiger, since the Ox is the stronger of the two. The Ox desire to create a safe and secure haven for the partner means that it can be a positive and warm love partner in a strong and lasting relationship.


Their personality is one that prefers a quiet atmosphere and peaceful attitude. They can be quite stubborn once they have made up their mind about anything. The mind that they have is quite logical and their activities are systematic toward the decided goal. The speech of t people born under this sign would never be considered overly chatty, but they are very intelligent and eloquent in their speech and communication. The intelligence, strong minded attitude and independence makes individuals born under this sign the strong leader type and able to achieve great things.


The individual born in the Year of the Ox has a choice of many great and suitable careers. Because of the high level of ability, ethics and attention to detail, any position that is helped by a methodical approach will be suitable by them. They  can work well in a large company or organization. They make a good army officer, banker, engineer, carpenter or manager. Their career benefits from being well-organized so that they make good leaders in a fairly structured environment. Personally they love to help other people and to provide thoughtful direction to others.

Elemental Ox

Metal Ox:
Bull- headed and intense, this is a confident, blunt and determined fellow who seldom lets anything get in the way of his will. A creature of few words, he prefers to have a handful of loyal friends, who appreciate art and music as much as he does. When decided about his objectives, he tends to be overly forceful, oblivious to the feelings of others. This may work against him, but on the whole he is a trustworthy, dependable and honest chap, who is a one-man army not to be reckoned with.

Water Ox:
Less narrow-minded and stern than other Oxen, the Water Ox is more willing to cooperate and work with others, often attracted to careers in the public service. Friendly and highly organized, he is an ideal worker, patient and methodical, with a keen sense of values. Children adore this type of Ox, and so do his many friends.

Wood Ox:

You will find this Ox the head of the boardroom, his authority, dignity and natural leadership ability impossible to miss. More graceful, less rigid and admired for his integrity, the Wood Ox can reach great heights in terms of success, material wealth and prominence. He speaks his mind, and understands the importance of co-existence, and despite his sometimes fiery temper can be most caring and devoted to those he loves.

Fire Ox:
Drawn most to power, success and prominence, this Ox has strong views and an explosive temper. He is inclined to show little consideration for the feelings of others, going about on his business in a single-minded, assertive fashion. His fiery nature and tendency towards a superiority complex could be well utilized in the military, and his leadership qualities may also lead him to a life of eminence and power.

Earth Ox:
Level-headed and sincere, this “steady eddie” type of Oxen , is the most realistic and enduring of the bunch. He is less creative but more practical, sincere and admired for his quiet integrity and excellent judge of character. He knows his limitations, and is prepared to fulfill his ambitions through diligence and enduring difficulties without complaint. Slow but sure, this sensible Ox will never give up.
