Ox — Combined Horoscope
Ox is the second sign of the Chinese horoscope. The Ox is Yin and is fixed to the Water element. The characteristics of the Ox correspond to the occidental sign of Capricorn. Yin is negative, feminine, and associated with the Night. Subjective Yin signs trust their feelings about themselves and others. You tend to be more concerned with the spiritual than the physical. As all opposites attract in nature, Yin attracts Yang. The Water element association bestows a better than average ability to communicate and an awareness of the feelings of others.
Those born under the Eastern Zodiac sign of Ox have many traits in common with the Western Zodiac sign of Taurus. Strong, determined, persistent, straightforward hard workers, this is a sign that gets what it wants through direct labor and effort. Oxes are proud and traditional. Without other astrological influences this sign is destined to put in long hours trying to accomplish their goals, almost all of which have to do with acquiring financial and material stability. Oxes don’t like to gamble or take unnecessary risks, as this opposes their slow-and-steady approach to building their own secure foundation in life.
Oxes don’t say much, but when they do they can speak eloquently. They often think about what they want to say before they speak and are very good at observing others before they engage them. This is not a sign that likes drawing too much attention, though, so most Oxes keep a small but loyal group of friends rather than a large group of acquaintances.
Though quiet and patient, Oxes will only allow themselves to be pushed so far. It can take a great deal of pushing, but eventually Oxes will lose their temper, and when they do things can get very ugly very quickly. Pushed to their limit, these individuals can explode into a violent rage and summon reserves of strength far beyond what others expect them capable of. Luckily, this trait is rarely seen, and those who want to have relationships with Oxes don’t have much to worry about, except that Oxes will apply their slow-and-steady approach to relationships just as they do with work. Potential partners may have to learn from Ox’s patience, but once this sign commits, they commit completely.
