Also known as the Buffalo, the ox is both patient and meticulous with strong principles, and as such tends to be very stubborn. The ox is extrememly strong, and an excellent worker.
However, these traits also make the ox stubborn, and their sense of self reliance makes it difficult for them to ask for or to receive assistance. Don't go looking for an evening of scintilating conversation from an ox as they are poor conversationists, and unfortunately don't have much of a sense of humour either.
Oxen are ruled by conviction, and they are not often swayed from their beliefs. The ox's ability to criticise others for their own shortcomings is well known. The ox is not very good at coping with its emotions, and can become introverted and self-destructive when they fail to find a way of expressing their feelings.

The methodical and organised nature of the Rooster suits the Ox well, so Ox’s should expect to be able to carry through any plans they may have and achieve many goals. Ox’s should also experience some new friendships and relationships this year.
Although they have strong bonds, the Ox and Rooster are not known for a special relationship, so this year will be average for the Ox compared to previous years.
