If you were born in 1961 or 2021, the annual pillar of the Metal Ox corresponds to your main Chinese zodiac sign.

Let us remember in preamble that the Chinese lunisolar calendar being based on the lunar cycles, the dates of the Year of the Metal Ox are different from a year of the Gregorian calendar (see below the exact dates of the Metal Ox Years).

In Chinese astrology, your date of birth can be broken down into four pillars of destiny (四柱 命理 学) or Ba-Zi (八字). Each pillar of destiny is associated with an animal and a Chinese element and corresponds to one of the periods of your birth (year, month, day and hour). If you were born at a Ox Hour, a Metal Ox Day or during a Metal Ox Month, each of these periods also corresponds to a pillar of destiny. The four pillars of the Metal Ox share the same imaged destiny, which you can discover further down the page.

Furthermore, if your year of birth is 1961 or 2021 and the Metal Ox is therefore your 1st pillar of destiny (your main Chinese zodiac sign, which is the one corresponding to your personality and your relationship to the world and with others), then all Metal Ox Days and Months, as well as the Chinese Hour of the Ox, are lucky times for you.

Find below the list of the annual and monthly dates of the Metal Ox's Chinese calendar, as well as the hours ruled by the Ox. Then discover the personality and characteristics of the Metal Ox, his lucky talismans (color, number, stone, fragrance), his Chinese birth chart (energy composition) and his love compatibility with the 12 animal signs of Chinese astrology. See also the traditional Chinese method that parents use to choose the birth name of a Metal Ox child, as well as the list of ideal trades supplemented by a list of celebrities born during the Chinese Year of the Metal Ox.
