year of the ox

The Year of the Ox begins on February 12, 2021 in the Gregorian calendar. It is the year 4718 in the Chinese sexagenary cycle of stems and branches. The second of the twelve Chinese animal signs, the ox serves with integrity.

The fixed sign of the ox is earth and 2021 is the year of the metal ox. The hours of the ox are 1–3 am. People born during these hours or during the year of the ox have great affinities with this sign.

The ox is honest, hardworking, sturdy, and determined. The ox is stable, calm, dependable, methodical, conventional, and is the backbone of community and agriculture. Routine is welcome. A long-term approach to endeavors is greeted with patience.

The ox tirelessly bears great burdens and is strong. As a result, the ox tends to maintain good health.

The ox is immobile against adversity but may also be stubborn toward change. The fortitude of the ox engenders trust and has a stabilizing force. The ox is logical and is even tempered unless stirred. Stay clear of the ox if patience is overextended and a raging bull emerges. Consistency, patience, and dedication are keys to prospering in the year of the ox.
