Artist's Description

As might be expected those born under the influence of the Ox are usually fortunate to be stable and persevering.

The Ox is a tolerant person with strong character. Not many people could equal the resolution and fearlessness the Ox exhibits when engaged in a task or an objective.

This great creature created our civilization by plowing the soil day after day, and as such it is not unusual to find Ox people laboring through their daily responsibilities either at work or at home without complaint or gripe.

Oxen know they will only succeed through hard work and sustained effort and find no truth or benefit in concocting get-rich-quick schemes.

Ox years are second in Chinese astrological sequence and recur every twelve years. hough the starting day of the year may vary the majority of people born in the years 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997 and 2009 are Ox people.

Pragmatic and down-to-earth, Ox people are motivated to work hard and are known to have no respect for lazy or careless people.

They can be easily trusted and put trust in others, they are not dependent on friends and family and find answers or solutions to problems. The rarely ask other people for help or guidance.

The rest of us however, can, without a doubt rely on Oxen, who are always honest and meticulous about their responsibilities.

They do not feel the need for many distant or causal friendships. They value the strong bonds they share with their partners and families, and often make close friends that last a lifetime.

Initially open-minded, Ox people make an informed decision about something, and rarely change it. Some see this defining characteristic as obstinacy, but it is actually the way an Ox learns to be strong, brave and straightforward.

It is the way the Ox generally approaches tasks and responsibilities and in the process learns to be reliable for others. Oxen are more comfortable with the well-known as opposed to the unfamiliar.

Beneath their unpretentious, tranquil exterior lies a heart of gold and a motivation to prosper.

The Chinese name for Ox is NIU, the sign of industry. January is the month of the ox and as such the Western astrological counterpart is Capricorn.

The Ox is obstinate, prone to pouting, truthful, motivated, friendly, apathetic, and genuine but usually quick-tempered
