The Fire Ox envisions great things for their life and subsequently, is highly motivated to achieve these goals. With added intensity, Fire Oxen often make the most effective leader, as others are quick to rally behind their passion. Although driven, a compassionate disposition often lies behind the authoritative and determined nature of the Fire Ox.

Although the influence of Fire is a great strength of the Fire Ox, it can become a challenge if left uncontrolled. The Fire Ox has a tendency to rush into action without considering all sides or thinking things through. Similarly, the Fire Ox can be blinded by their combative tempers. Those born under the Fire Ox sign are encouraged to moderate their passion, being sure to embrace a more realistic view of themselves and their limitations.
Fire Ox in Relationships
Oxen aren’t very sociable and rarely participate in group activities. They abhor small talk and won’t waste their time flirting. They will search long and hard for the perfect partner as change makes them uncomfortable. Whether due to an ox’s tendency to be overbearing or tendency to place blame on others, relationships with Oxen don’t always work out.

Fire Oxen are natural born leaders. In fact, they’ll often hold positions of importance at work and in the community. They have short fuses and tend to react impulsively instead of considering the opinion of others.
