2009 Year of the Ox

The Ox 牛

2009 ist the year of the Ox, which is also my sign in the Chinese zodiac. Well… must be a good sign!!

Characteristics of the Ox:
Dependable, calm, methodical, born leader (wow…), patient, hardworking, ambitious, conventional, steady, modest, logical, resolute, tenacious. Can be stubborn, narrow-minded, materialistic, rigid, demanding (not me… haha).

The Ox is the most balanced Chinese sign, loving peace, harmony and beauty. At the same time, Oxen can be strong willed, and behind their beautiful, serene faces can be a great temper and a critic that reacts angrily to anyone who threatens or harms them.

Do you recognize me ? 😉
