2021 is the Year of the Ox in Chinese Astrology. The year starts on February 12, 2021. No matter what year you were born, there is Ox energy somewhere in your chart:
The Rooster has his Mother’s Dad and Dad’s Mom as role models. Were these grandparents fearful? Or have they found peace and have passed it along to the Rooster? To get out of fear, the Rooster needs to look at these grandparents and choose not to do what they did.
The Tiger has a Ox in the area of sex, death and taxes. The Tiger can obsess over what might happen next….will they hear from the IRS?…..what is that pain in my back? Am I performing up to his/her expectations? They can also worry about whether they’ll get an inheritance or not.
Cats have Oxen as mates. If the Cat seems to have mastered his/her fear issues, the mate can show him otherwise. It can make the Cat angry to be kept from going out prowling. The Ox wants it to stay home and be an indoor cat. There can be lots of fights over this.
The Dragon has Oxen who work with them in the workplace, or even a boss or employer. They can work in a field which is akin to the kidneys (like kidney dialysis, or dentist, or tv anchor people). The Ox is always putting the fear of God into the Dragon, and s/he must fight it all the time.
The Snake chooses Oxen in uncommitted relationships. The Snake’s first child can be of Snake energy as well, regardless of his/her chart. They can get along pretty well, as long as the Snake doesn’t show its fear of not being perfect.,
The Horse has a Ox for a mother. The Horse has a foundation of fear. There may be a few Oxen mothers around who are a peace, but they are in the minority. The Horse must learn to take risks, and go beyond mom’s admonitions to stay near.
The Sheep communicates with Ox energy. The Sheep will have Oxen for siblings, and the first one in particular. The Sheep tends to run with the herd anyway, rather than being the maverick and going it alone, so Oxen siblings can manipulate the Sheep quite well with their fear.
The Monkey has real issues over money. The Oxen oversees the money area of his life, and he tends to be conservative and not bet, or invest in highly speculative ventures.
The Rooster has Oxen in his/her life who are priests, professors….or travel agents. They have a fear of traveling unless otherwise encouraged. Priests and those in higher education tend to come from a fear base and leaves the Ox with all sorts of irrational fears. These people can have kidney issues with teeth, bones, fertility and the kidneys themselves.
The Dog has Oxen as hospital personnel, or enemies. In this case, the enemy is fear. The Dog barks and scares away anyone who is willing to have a relationship because of the fear of abandonment. The Dog needs to trust and open up again.
The Boar has a Ox for friends; and they can talk him out of taking action. Which is why the Boar is so morose and depressed; reflecting on what might have been. The Boar needs to find peaceful Oxen The Boar has a sibling next oldest, who is a Ox, who can infest him with negative energy if s/he isn’t careful.
The Rat has a Ox for a Dad and Employer. It is the area of career as well, and the Rat needs to throw off the words of the Ox father to make a success in life. If drawn to a fearful boss, the Rat needs to move on.
In more traditional Chinese Astrology you are told not to marry someone of the opposite sign, which in this case, is The Cat.
But when you overlap the Chinese chart over the western astrology chart, it becomes obvious, since the 7th house represents marriage, and The Cat is the seventh animal from the Ox, that you will be drawn to The Cat…..even if you shouldn’t!!
So, Ox, don’t write someone off who’s a potential mate, just because they aren’t a Cat, or a Cancer (which is Cat energy). More often you marry the animal energy that’s opposite that at the time of your birth, which is more reflective of your personally; but the Cat is part of the picture.
A person may not be born in that year, but their, month, day or hour animal may be that energy or they can have a lot of planets in that area. After awhile you’ll be able to recognize just who represents the energy and who doesn’t.
