I was born in 1949 and am an Ox. An earth Ox.
We are said to be bright, peace-loving, often easy-going and trusting. But, on the other hand, we can also be stubborn, methodical, and fiercely competitive, with…uh, oh…. fierce tempers. My husband will vouch for that!
Oxen are also said to be natural born mentors and life is filled with examples of people who have gone on to great success because of them.
Barack Obama is also an Ox. A metal Ox.
According to one source I read: “They respond like poets to the beauties of nature and of solitude.” And I have to admit, I do love my solitude.
The source also said: “Oxen are unique, they are the flower that bursts through the crack of cement.”
I like that.
