🐮 Quiet strength irradiates from the Ox, the second sign of the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Ox are self-confident and know their life objectives.

Even in his darkest periods, the Ox finds the stamina to get up again, always able to carry heavy loads if need be.

The Ox has an immoderate love for his family. Life would bear no meaning to him without the close presence of his family and loved ones.

It is not rare for people born during the Year of the Ox to be broad-shouldered, and they also usually have good bone strength. Very disciplined in his daily life, the Ox consequently suffers from a regular lack of fantasy and creativity.

Self-disciplined and organized, people born in the Year of the Ox will rather support their own business than having to report their activity to someone else. That's why, when it's possible, they usually choose loneliness while at work, in order to preserve their peace of mind and their productivity. 

The Ox is overall a great and trustful professional to work with, notwithstanding his highly developed self-esteem. If challenged or betrayed, beware of the Ox, as the proud animal may sting his enemy with destructive anger, and against all odds turn into a spiteful and vindictive individual.
