An Aquarian born under the Chinese Year of the Ox generally has a shy demeanour making expression of his feelings difficult. People who arrive during these 12 yearly Ox cycles depicted by Chinese Astrology adopt some of their animalistic traits. This particular animal is renowned for it’s ability to plow through each day with consistent effort. Although typically Aquarians like variety the influence of the Ox can suppress this need for constant change. The Aquarius Ox is blessed with a very paced personality that retains the creativity of this sun sign and acquires steadfastness of the Chinese animal symbol.
Aquarius Ox Traits
This pairing of the Western and Chinese astrological designations gives us great insight into personalities. It helps us understand the reasons why Aquarian’s born in different years seem to mimic the behaviour of their associated animal. The Ox is a strong dominant characteristic but the water bearing Aquarius force can tame this strength. The personality will still however retain and contain a streak of the Ox’s stubborn and fiery temper. People with this particular combination of sign are often easily agitated when provoked due to the prominence of this designated animal. Their shyness can sometimes be mistaken for arrogance but the friendly Aquarian influence does a good job of counteracting this.
The main useful qualities that the Aquarius Ox personality will display are their versatile natures. In possessing such versatility these people are also usually physically strong and mentally very alert. They make reliable but fun friends, partners and parents who can quickly adapt to most situations they may encounter. Although there is the suggestion of a difficulty in expressing their emotions the Aquarius Ox will be prepared to try their best with the people that matter to them. So in close personal relationships when their bashfulness is at a minimum they communicate their thoughts much better.
Being born an Aquarian in the Year of the Ox adds self assurance and lots of patience to a persons character. These people can be relied upon to choose their words carefully and keep secrets. They, like the Ox, will work long and hard in most areas of life with great endurance. The most agreeable attributes of stamina from the nature of the beast weave through the creative,intellectual water bearing Aquarius. This particular mixture produces people who are rather open minded, motivated and thoughtful of others. A well balanced personality is exhibited with lots of flexibility making the Aquarius Ox an ideal partner.
While the Aquarius Ox is a trustworthy, hard working individual, he or she will also have a dislike of change. This little blemish on their character is blamed on the Ox’s supression of the typical need for diversity often prominent in Aquarians. To overcome this fear of changes, and some of their shyness, these people often require others around them to help them. Although the independent touch of Aquarius exists in these individuals it needs coaxing forward. Gentle reminders and encouragement to communicate more effectively their concerns, will as a rule, help them cope with any necessary changes of direction.
Aquarius Ox Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Aquarius Ox have the uncanny ability to come across as mysterious without intending to. Because they are always thinking and working, even those close to them don’t really know them all that well. This is not intentional on the Aquarius Ox part. They are actually very friendly, they are just more interested in listening than talking, and have no qualms being by themselves to work on whatever project is going on in their head.
Members of this sign are hard to pin down. They don’t fall in love easily, and they can be hard to get to know. If you can be patient with them, you can slowly break down their unintentional walls and get inside to find out what’s going on in their heads, which is always fascinating. Once they let you in and trust you, they will be loyal and protective. They would love to include you in their grand schemes and take you along on their journeys. Just don’t expect an Aquarius Ox to change. They are fixed in their ways, but if you can accept that, they are among the most interesting and friendly people you can find.
Aquarius Ox Business (Career & Goals)
Aquarius Ox can excel in many areas, but they need to be careful to choose a field that suits their personality. You will never find an Aquarius Ox playing the role of a salesman, waiter, or bartender. Those are far too social and don’t offer enough challenge. Aquarius Ox need a way to blend their ability to work hard with the time and freedom to do things their own way. One career where they excel is as teachers, particularly at the higher education levels. Aquarius Ox make great professors. They have no problem working hard to get the education necessary, and enjoy sharing their unique way of seeing the world with others. In particular, they do best as professors of social sciences (archeology, anthropology, sociology, social psychology).
Not all Aquarius Ox enjoy education, however. In fact, some downright hate it. Aquarius Ox raised in strict schools that don’t encourage creative thinking can stifle the fruitful minds of this sign. In these cases, members of this sign often strike out on their own directly after high school. They can often be found in jobs where they can work long, hard hours while being able to put things together in the way they see fit. They can often be found as mechanics, construction workers, carpenters, or even as artists that work with big, industrial materials, like metal sculptures.
