Sign of the Ox
The Chinese calendar is divided not by numerical years, as is in the Western concept of time, but in a 12-year cycle of animal signs, which continually repeat themselves. According to Chinese legend, these twelve signs are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram (Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar (Pig).
In Chinese folklore, traits and characteristics similar to the Zodiac horoscope have developed around each of these annual animal signs -- some of which are more desirable than others. Here is a look at the qualities of each of them.

Sign of the Ox
People born under the Year of the Ox are considered fortunate. They have strong character, are stable and determined, and have unmatched resolution. Just as the ox is tireless in plowing the soil, so is the person born in the Year of Ox tireless in his or her daily responsibilities. They are not deterred by get-rich schemes -- they rely on hard work and diligence. The Ox, also referred to as the Water Buffalo, is so determined, however, that he is also prone to stubbornness and obstinacy. Additionally, his appreciation for order and diligence can become entrenched as inflexibility and close-mindedness.
