The Diligent Ox

Hard-working and persistent, ox people believe in themselves. An ox has high black and white moral standards and severely judges others against those ideals.

Ox people are not terribly social and tend to be quiet at parties. Beneath a superfical tranquility, oxen are often ponderous but are impulsive when angry. They are capable of fearsome rages; therefore, it is better not to cross them.

Ox people are good observers with remarkable memories and can accurately report absolutely everything they see. Go ask an ox if he remembers who was at the party several months ago, most likely, he will name them one by one to you.

In the home, the ox is great to have around. In business, the ox can succeed in the arts, a contracting business, or an estate, thanks to his creative nature. And since an ox is intelligent and good with his hands, an ox can be a good surgeon as well.

Ox people are stubborn and dogmatic, believing firmly in their decisions and having no regrets. They are also very close to their families. Ox people often find that those who are close to them fail to understand them. Nevertheless, they are patient and caring and that makes an ox the best friend you can ever have.

Ox people are very responsible and loyal. They are very family-oriented, conservative and faithful. They are seldom jealous but they will be jealous of their rights - and the fidelity of a husband or a wife is one of their rights. The best matches for an ox are a rat, rooster, snake, or monkey. Good matches are another ox or rabbit. Ok matches are a pig or dog. A horse or tiger match is not recommended.
