Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is Chinese New Year! It’s the start of the Year of the Ox, which is my year. Hey, baby, what’s your sign? Do you think it fits for you?

I am a water ox. (soooo flattering, isn’t it?)

Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.

Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.

Home is where Oxen go to seek comfort, occasionally watching television or reading. They prefer the rural outdoors and spend the majority of their “home” time working in the garden or caring for the yard.

Oxen aren’t very sociable and rarely participate in group activities. They abhor small talk and won’t waste their time flirting. They will search long and hard for the perfect partner as change makes them uncomfortable.

Water Oxen are much more flexible, and because of this quality, they’re better able to understand what others are thinking and feeling. They’re sincere, patient, quick-thinking and others enjoy being around them.

Gung Hei Fat Choy (wishing you prosperity and wealth)…and happy new year!

  1. Well, this certainly me in a nutshell, LOL!
    Happy New Year!

    ~The Tiger symbolizes such character traits as bravery, competitiveness and unpredictability.
    ~Born to lead, Tigers can be stubborn if they realize they’re not in charge. They have a slight tendency to be selfish but overall, Tigers are extremely generous. They’re very intelligent and they’re always on alert. Tigers are very charming and are well-liked by others. They are not motivated by money or power.
    ~Tigers have a continual need to be challenged which may explain why they jump from job to job. This isn’t necessarily a problem because they’re smart and able to quickly master new subjects.
    ~Creative in their passion, Tigers will never bore their partners. They’re expressive, polite and trustworthy, but watch out. Tigers tend to dominate their relationships.


  2. Hi, Anya! Happy Chinese New Year to you, too!

    I was born in the Year of the Dragon, and I’ve always loved that fact. Gives me the perfect reason to have all my dragon figurines all over the house!


  3. I’m a metal monkey!

    Metal Monkeys are determined and ambitious individuals and as a result, they’re often successful. Although they’re considered warm-hearted and very likeable, their preference in life is to be alone. Metal Monkeys are loyal to both their employers and their partners.
