GENERAL INFORMATION

The Ox has a close relationship with human beings. In early agricultural society, humans relied heavily on the ox for hard labor in the field. Oxen work slowly, and are prized for their strong power and ability to work constantly for long periods of time. Ox is a symbol for endurance, fortitude, and stamina in Chinese tradition. It is the second animal symbol in the 12 Chinese Animals System. We use Chou to represent the Ox symbol in the 12 Earthly Branches. Chou is a symbol for the 01:00-02:59 time of day and for the twelfth month in the Chinese Lunar-Solar calendar (which is approximately January 6 through February 4 in the Gregorian Solar calendar). Chou represents the darkest time of day and the coldest month of the day. It is a time or place where Yang energy (life energy) is working hard to deliver the next stage in a new life cycle. We use the tidal hexagram Lin to symbolize Ox.

Having an Ox animal symbol in your Chinese birth chart suggests you are gentle, stable, straight, vocal, and vital, and can sometimes be stubborn or obstinate. You have great endurance and stamina, which will help you achieve your goals. Oxen are ruminants, chewing, swallowing, and regurgitating the same food repeatedly. Just as oxen ruminate their food over and over, you have a tendency to ruminate your thoughts again and again before making decisions. This might give others the impression that you are a slow person. However, no matter how difficult the situation is, once your decision is made, your steady nature will allow you to complete your tasks.

People like your gentleness and patient character. Sometimes, you have a strong temper. You would do well to choose a stable job, such as a teacher, counselor, or doctor, or a government job. When you work directly with people, you would be wise to continually cultivate your flexibility; otherwise, you may come across as being arrogant or prejudiced. The most important thing for you to remember if you are in a relationship is to learn how to truly listen to your partner’s voice and hear their needs.

. . .

If Ox is your yearly animal symbol, you will likely have a hard life when you are young – driven to challenge yourself and work very hard. However, you are able to achieve you goals and be successful in business because of your tough work, diligence and enduring effort. You might feel very lonely sometimes, if you generally do not receive enough support from your parents and family.

If Ox is your monthly animal symbol, you have great compassion for others. You are very independent and can be a workaholic. You rarely take the opportunity to get together with your parents and siblings.

If Ox is your hourly animal symbol, you have a great life. People pay respect to you no matter what you are doing. You are in charge of what you are doing. Make sure to take good care of yourself and have nice vacations when you are 18, 26, 31, and 46 years old. During these potentially difficult years, it would be wise to adopt a vegetarian diet in order to avoid significant health challenges.

PERSONALITY

You are gentle, stable, straight, vocal, and vital, and can sometimes be stubborn or obstinate. You are stable, like a mountain on the earth. You center yourself very well in the almost every situation, even in very tough times. Your great patience, vigor, compassion, and meditative mind will help you complete your tasks and achieve your greatest goals in life. Like soil in the field, plants could not grow if the soil is heavy and dry; in order to flourish, learn to use your natural tendency to ruminate and cultivate a flexible attitude.

. . .

RELATIONSHIPS

A Snake or Rooster person may be your soulmate, or at least can be your close friend. A Rat or Pig person will make a great business partner for you. Be careful around a Horse person because it is easy to have some conflicts between you two. Try to make peace with the Goat person – sometimes, you two get into fights for no real reason. You will have simple relationships with other animal symbol people.

. . .

FOODS

Green vegetables, soybeans, fermented foods, beef, and fish are good for you.
