Monkey and Ox Compatibility
The Monkey and the Ox will inevitably clash, as they are too different not to, but they can make good friends if they understand one another’s natures. The Ox’s penchant for harmony and order will work in this relationship’s favor; the Ox avoids disagreements whenever possible. Also, the fun, energetic Monkey might be able to spice up the Ox’s social life and show this normally shy, reserved sign a good time. However, when the Monkey gets overly boisterous, the Ox’s normally placid demeanor will give way to this sign’s inner conservatism.
If you are a Monkey, you probably have a few schemes on the go right now. Monkeys are quick and clever, and are always thinking of new ideas. They have trouble, however, when it comes to committing themselves to their plans, and as a result you are likely to find Monkeys bouncing from job to job and relationship to relationship. Monkeys are expert charmers and seducers, and never have any trouble getting a job, closing a sale, or getting someone to fall in love with them. Their weakness lays in their tendency to get bored once the challenge is gone.
If an Ox has caught your eye, you might be impressed by her ability to get the job done, no matter what, which is a trait you often lack. You might admire her dedication and honesty. Oxen are confident, because they know they can get the job done. An Ox is never intimidated, because she knows what her plan is and sticks to it-the opinion of others is irrelevant. If you get her mad though-watch out! An Ox in a rage is not a pretty sight.
Oxen are concerned with security. They like to work hard and provide for their family. An Ox may be a good match for a Monkey in this regard, because she may provide extra finances for those times when a Monkey’s schemes fall through. You will find that an Ox will be content to be the giver in the relationship, which is good because, as a Monkey, you are prone to selfishness.
Oxen are great leaders but don’t crave the spotlight. If you marry an Ox, she will work hard for you and the security of the family, but won’t mind if you hog the attention. If the need arises, however, she won’t hesitate to take the lead. Such a dependable person may be exactly what you need to tame you a little. On the other hand, since Oxen are independent and not demanding, you will still be able to center your life around yourself.
Monkey and Ox Love Compatibility
As lovers, these two will have to allow one another plenty of space to be themselves. The Monkey needs to be active, to go out with friends and have a thriving social life, but the Ox may prefer to stay home. The Monkey’s primary interest is the pursuit of pleasure and the Ox may have a hard time being patient when the Monkey’s exuberant nature gets it into trouble. The Ox is a naturally honorable sign and tends to hold others to rather high standards; the Monkey may have trouble measuring up. The Monkey is both curious and gregarious and thus has the potential to stray romantically; the dependable, steady Ox will have trouble understanding this kind of behavior.
Monkey Woman and Ox Man Compatibility
Although the Ox man may disapprove of the Monkey woman’s flirtatious and social ways, he is accepting as long as she is loyal and the couple keeps the communication open according to Chinese astrology.
Monkey Man and Ox Woman Compatibility
The Ox woman in Shengxiao prefers stability, so this may not mesh well with the Monkey man’s need to roam, explore new adventures, and meet new people on a whim. While the Ox woman prefers having stability and routine and will often nag the Monkey to change his ways, their sense of humor is often what helps the couple keep their lasting bonds, if they are both seriously committed and in love with one another.
