Year of the Ox

牛 (niú)

The stable and reliable Ox people are usually trusted by their superiors because they are faithful, kind and work in an orderly way. 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.

Even if they have a crush on someone, they would not take the initiative to pursue. In this way, they miss a lot of good things, which is really a pity!
