Ox - Personality and Characteristics


Tough, honest, faithful…

Most people with Chinese zodiac Ox sign hold conservative and traditionalistic personalities. They impress people with an image of endurance, honesty and diligence. They seldom fear for any hardships or difficulties. They are persistent but stubborn, cautious but hesitant, moody and quick-tempered. Napoleon was typical in many ways but with certain very noticeable failings with the sign of the Ox.


Persistent, cautious, patient…


Ox personality is slow in action, but quite persistent. Once they make decisions, they will hold on straight to the end. Cautious and careful, before taking actions, they will take a long time for consideration. Stability is another characteristic in their personality, for they are hardly ever affected by the environment changes and others’ judgment. With strong faith and willpower, they can always realize their goals. Honest and patient, they are reliable companions and friends. Besides, they are independent and industrious, which makes them to achieve something easily. When handling cases, they can arrange everything orderly. They give much care and attention to family, being filial to parents and tender to brothers and sisters. They are peace lovers, and treat people equally.


Stubborn, tardy, fractious…


One of the weaknesses of Ox Chinese zodiac personality is their stubbornness, for they can hardly change their minds to accept the advice of others. They usually do things based on their own slow pace. The lack of efficiency will result in an average outcome. They seem to be moody, actually fractious, obstructive and irritable. Due to their characteristic stiffness, they cannot react correctly according to outside changes. Remaining in a passive situation, they are tending to be loose and clumsy. In relationships, they have no sense of romance and no skill to please their lovers. Their speech is also blunt; they can be unaccustomed to speaking in public, which will make them quite nervous.


Stably rising, obtainable higher position…


Oxen's career develops stably and smoothly. With persistence and willpower, they can remain highly-spirited in a tough situation which enables them to reap success. By remaining in the same occupation long term, they are likely to get promotion and a handsome salary; as their capability will be recognized by colleagues and bosses alike. If starting a business, their talent will be used to the full. All in all, they can accomplish something by their hard work. However, they need to be aware of others’ jealousy, and learn to be more flexible in response to these disadvantages.

Well-to-do life, weak awareness of money…


In Oxen's lifetime, their economic status is good, and most of the income is from hard working. They can hardly become tycoon or make a fortune in a short time. They may have some savings, which supports them to lead a well-to-do life. Actually, they have weak awareness in money matters, and they are inclined to form a habit of over-spending. Expenditure outweighs the income, and they sometimes suffer from financial shortage. They should never show up in a casino, for they have no luck in gambling.

Love and Relationships

Conservative, faithful, suspicious…


As it mentioned before, oxen are a group of people who lack romance, so people falling in love with them seldom get surprises. They are also awkward with words, and not good at flirting. Seeming to be cool and indifferent, they have an ardent inner side. When coming across the people they admire, they will get actively close to them. Their efforts in love will be not in vain, and they usually hope their partner feels the same way as they do in return. The problems of relationships usually come from their over tenderness to the opposite sex and suspicion about the other's loyalty.

Best Matches: Rat, Snake, Rooster
Bad Matches: Tiger, Dragon, Horse, Sheep

Stomach disease, light diet…


Their spleen functions well, helping to digest food and arouse the appetite. If they can go on a diet and control their excessive desire for food, they will live a long life and maintain a dynamic condition. However, there will be some stomach problems. If they eat a lot of greasy, sour and sweet food, they may produce an excess of saliva, which may give rise to other diseases. They are recommended to keep to a light diet and eat plenty of vegetables and fruits.
