Ox and Horse Compatibility
The Ox and the Horse seem like a mismatch but their very differences could prove complementary, with a bit of understanding on both sides. There is certainly room for both signs to become irritated or impatient with one another in this relationship, however. The Ox’s dependable, steady and conservative nature is in direct contrast to the Horse’s wild, free spirit, its love of travel and variation and its deep independent streak.
Oxen are dependable people. They have the will to finish everything they start and they do it at a steady pace, without any frantic cramming near the deadline. Oxen do not require a spotlight or even a lot of attention. They dedicate themselves to friends and family, and for the most part are contented to work away in the background. If you are an Ox it is likely that you are fond of plans, strategies, and schedules, and do not like deviating from them. You make a most desirable coworker, and for those born under many signs, you are an ideal mate because you give far more than you take.
As an Ox, your weakness is in your inflexibility. Sometimes you take thoroughness and conscientiousness too far. Family and friends may urge you to take a little time off for fun, or demand a little loving attention, and you are often unable to comply. You are not a romantic, and it takes you a long time to fall in love. Once you are in love, however, there are few signs more dedicated to their partners than you. You are not the "flowers and chocolates" type, but you are a good listener and offer steadfast support and well thought out advice.
Horses are the opposite of Oxen. They cannot sit still, and must be amused by gossip and parties. Horses are prone to gallop, and want others to come along as they are very social creatures. Horses are terrible at keeping schedules, and tend to show up when it suits them (or perhaps when they remember that there was something they had committed to today-or was it yesterday?)
Horses tend to ignore or forget domestic duties, and need a spotlight fixed upon them. Horses are quite flighty, and have a difficult time committing to just one person, especially in their youth. Horses are swept away by their emotions, which can be impressive and passionate.
Ox and Horse Love Compatibility
The Horse can become quite uncomfortable when pressured to settle down, but the Ox is all about stability. A love relationship may not be optimal for these two signs; the Horse may be too restless for the Ox’s steady, harmonious love nature. The Horse actually has some inner conflict when it comes to love: It craves love and intimacy but suffers from an inferiority complex. Therefore, this sign has a hard time letting its guard down, even with close friends. This may illuminate a point of connection between these two signs, however. The shy, caring Ox may be just the sign to make the Horse feel loved and valued. The Horse will appreciate being able to lean on the strong Ox in times of distress or need, whether these two are lovers, members of the same family or business partners.
Ox Woman and Horse Man Compatibility
An Ox woman and a Horse man make ideal friends according to the Chinese zodiac, although it is a challenge when dating and when pursuing a romantic relationship with one another. The Horse man is often too free-spirited for the Ox woman to agree with, causing the couple to have plenty of fights and arguments throughout their time together. Although they argue frequently, as friends, they are forgiving and most often able to accept each others personality quirks.
Ox Man and Horse Woman Compatibility
A Horse woman in Shengxiao and an Ox man can only work if the Ox man is comfortable allowing the Horse woman to have her own independence, which is not in his nature (as the Ox prefers a stable and committed relationship that is long-lasting). Ultimately, the Horse woman may be too intense for an Ox, especially when romantically linked with her.
