The Ox is a person who will often find themselves in the same place or situation for longer periods than others. Whether it is in a relationship, a job, or just a phase of their life, the Ox is built to both endure and succeed. Part of this is that they will tend to favor those things that they are already familiar with. This allows them to make the most of what they can do, and in many ways to eliminate the chaos from their own world that seems to control so many others.
As someone who holds out for what they want, the Ox is also someone for whom discipline is second nature. They can maintain a level of work and a state of mind far beyond many of their peers, both in their personal and professional lives. It can be hard, however, to endure sudden changes in their life, at least for the first few days. As the Ox slowly refocuses their mind, though, they will soon return to a more stable and happy state. It simply takes them a little longer than others to figure out what is the best path for them. Though once they do, they are strong and determined.
As someone who takes their time with change and must feel before they can act, the Ox is prone to follow the same sort of pattern in all of their relationships. They are quick to be friendly with others, but slow to transition into a deeper relationship. Some signs struggle as a result of this to get to know the Ox, though it is never impossible to break through that initial barrier. For those born under the sign of the Ox care feel for others with great force. Should if a partner can be patient and allow an Ox the time they need to adjust, the end result will be a relationship that will stand up to all the tests of time.
While the Rat is a grounded individual in life, the sensations and thoughts that arise when they are around others often flow through them unimpeded by any restraint. What this produces, however, is a beautiful person who is quick to care and devoted to their friends and family. With deep connections comes tragic love too, where they cannot grasp the thing they want and must adjust to another way of life. But through all of the ups and downs of the Rat's romantic life, there is ultimately someone who they can draw close in times of peace, and gently rest their head upon.
While the Ox is slow to let others in, it is because they look to protect those that surround them. This makes them wonderful friends but difficult acquaintances, as the transition from one to the other is not as fluid as it may be with other people. Once a person takes the time to know an Ox, however, they will quickly find them a firm foundation on which to build a lasting relationship. For they are not there to judge one way or another, but simply to support, sustain, and find comfort in the company of their friends and family.
The Ox is a person who will always work best when they are in a situation where they can apply themselves for a long period of time. Short-term positions and project will make them uncomfortable, and as such they sometimes have trouble advancing through the first phases of their careers. Once that period is over, however, an Ox will be perfect in any role that requires a deep and narrow field of knowledge. So while they don't tend to end up in managerial positions, those born under the sign of the Ox will eventually do well in their field of choice.
