year of the ox

Oxen, in lack of humor and romance, mostly reach success late in life and feature an indomitable character and a strong logical thinking. Their wisdom and skills are often covered up by the taciturnity but once given a chance, they can become dignified and eloquent orators, do what they want wholeheartedly and never give up halfway. Therefore, people of Ox sign are the typical realist.
