Those born under the Eastern Zodiac sign of Ox have many traits in common with the Western Zodiac sign of Taurus. Strong, determined, persistent, straightforward hard workers, this is a sign that gets what it wants through direct labor and effort. Oxen are proud and traditional. Without other astrological influences this sign is destined to put in long hours trying to accomplish their goals, almost all of which have to do with acquiring financial and material stability. Oxen don’t like to gamble or take unnecessary risks, as this opposes their slow-and-steady approach to building their own secure foundation in life.
Oxen don’t say much, but when they do they can speak eloquently. They often think about what they want to say before they speak and are very good at observing others before they engage them. This is not a sign that likes drawing too much attention, though, so most Oxen keep a small but loyal group of friends rather than a large group of acquaintances.
Though quiet and patient, Oxen will only allow themselves to be pushed so far. It can take a great deal of pushing, but eventually Oxen will lose their temper, and when they do things can get very ugly very quickly. Pushed to their limit, these individuals can explode into a violent rage and summon reserves of strength far beyond what others expect them capable of. Luckily, this trait is rarely seen, and those who want to have relationships with Oxen don’t have much to worry about, except that Oxen will apply their slow-and-steady approach to relationships just as they do with work. Potential partners may have to learn from Ox’s patience, but once this sign commits, they commit completely.
