The Chinese astrological symbol of the Ox represents a solid, determined, self sufficient and mostly undemonstrative personality. This animal’s resolute influence is well matched to the typical disciplined traits of a Western Astrology’s Capricorn sun sign. If a Capricorn is born in the Year of the Ox their resulting personality is believed to be very strong willed. The Capricorn Ox will be rather determined in their mannerisms, ambitious and appear to rely on nobody but themselves. A Capricorn Ox is organized and decisive but also a little reserved and not a person that likes to draw attention to him or herself.
Capricorn Ox Traits
The Capricorn Ox is usually a practical person who is a hard worker and sees most things as easily achievable with a little effort. These are not complainers or pessimists, they will take on reponsibility easily and take it seriously. They tend to not let work stress them out too much while still retaining the importance of their responsibilities. A Capricorn Ox tends to have big aspirations in life and sometimes occasionally be relentless in their pursuit of them. These personalities like money and they are usually quite apt at handling it and unlikely to be tempted by gambling or frivolous buys.
Home life is important to the Capricorn Ox as it gives him a stable base from where he can build for the future. These are not particularly sociable personalities that like going out and so relaxation periods will more often than not be centered around being indoors. These Capricorn’s are always thinking ahead and planning their next move. They prefer to make decisions on their own but will be prepared to listen and consider other people’s advice if it is offered. A Capricorn Ox does not generally believe in luck, they seem to assume that you make your own path to good fortune with perseverance.
A Capricorn Ox will search for soul mate’s that will help them with their ambitions and plans in life. These individual’s are inclined to decide from a young age the things thay want to achieve, acquire and aim for. It is almost impossible to change their decisions once they have set them in motion. If a Capricorn Ox finds a supportive and not too overly sensitive partner they will be appreciative, affectionate and protective towards them. These individual’s are as determined to make relationships work as they are with their everything else in life.
The rigidness of the Capricorn Ox’s outlook makes them sometimes that stubborn that they would rather lose out than give in. They can be far too obstinate for their own good at times and have a tendency to sulk a lot too. These little weaknesses in the Capricorn Ox personality do not usually bother anyone else. These negative traits can make these individual’s angry with themselves and this can in turn cause them to get stressed. They need to think a little longer before being so instantly dismissive of things. If they manage to do this then their stubbornness and its resulting stress may lessen.

Social situations are somewhat unnatural for this sign. They have a hard time relaxing and not thinking about all the work they could be doing instead.

Those they feel comfortable with get to see their softer side and feel lucky when they get the rare opportunity to socialize with them.
Romantic relationships are significantly more challenging for this sign. Not only do they tend to judge others’ imperfections harshly, they also don’t make a lot of time for relationships. Perhaps in their minds they think that once they have achieved a certain status or success level they will be able to attract the kind of mate they fantasize about having, but in truth they will only find real happiness once they learn how balance their lives enough to make room for love. This is a particularly difficult challenge for Capricorn Ox, but achieving balance is often their very life purpose. The sooner Capricorn Ox can transcend their need for success and achievement, the sooner they will find balance, happiness, and love.
