They believe that everyone should do what is asked of them and stay within their boundaries. Though they are kind, it’s difficult for them to understand persuasion using pathos. Rarely losing their temper, they think logically and make great leaders.
Men born in the Ox year are reliable and trustworthy. They put their entire heart into everything they do. They feel great responsibility towards their family as well, however, due to their confidence (almost arrogance), they don’t allow anyone to go against their rules. They hold their children to high expectations, even though it might be unrealistic.
Women born in the Ox year are calm and gentle. They will never surrender to fate and rarely think of choosing an alternative. This no doubt leads to a life of struggle, but no matter what, they will walk down the road they choose until the end. Despite this stubbornness, they think and react quickly.
