Year of the Ox: Personality horoscope

Concerning his sentimental life, the Ox has an immoderate love for his family. Life would have no meaning for him without the presence of his family and friends. He is faithful in love and cares very carefully about the education of his children. Very territorial, the Ox is also jealous and possessive. It is better not to enter his domain without having his prior blessing.

On a morphological level, it is not uncommon for people born during a year of the Ox to be broad-shouldered, just as they generally have good bone strength.

Very disciplined in his daily life, loyal and rather honest, his opinions are generally conservative and respectful of the established order. As a result, the Ox sometimes suffers from a lack of fantasy, which doesn't prevent him from excelling in the creative trades whose high level of requirement is up to his abilities.

Self-disciplined and organized, the Ox favors when he can the creation and development of his own business rather than having to report to a superior. That is why, when the conditions allow it, the Ox would rather choose a solitary job, in order to preserve his peace of mind and his productivity, especially as speed not being his best asset, he needs to manage his progression to the rhythm that suits him best.

In the business world, the Ox is a trustworthy professional, with whom one can work serenely, despite his highly developed ego and his lack of flexibility. In case of too much frontal contestation or if he feels betrayed, always beware of the Ox; even wounded, he will always have the strength and agility needed to grip his enemy in the whirlwind of his violent and destructive anger.
