For your sign of the Ox, nothing is too big or too small to conquer. This year, as the year of the earth Dog takes over, you've got your ambitions set pretty high, and aren't afraid to go after what you want. Your victories have been hard-fought sometimes, and the people who weren't helpful have been added to your mental list. Never doubt the power of an Ox to seek and find revenge when it's warranted.
This year is filled with opportunities, but you mostly create them yourself, and with like-minded partners and groups. Together, you can move mountains, while alone you may find the climb impossible.
Love has a special place for you this year, too, as someone you've had your eye on suddenly seems to notice you. Dreamy nights may turn into romantic days and more as you get to know each other that much better. Let yourself have a little pleasure this year.
Love - Romantic
During the year of the earth Dog, Ox natives like you should think about what they're doing to feel comfortable and at ease in romance.
If you're single and looking for something special, taking the time to really get to know each other without expectations makes you so happy. You're doing stuff you love with someone who lights up your life, and months may go by before you even have a chance to think about where it might all be going.
Dating partners will show you who they are in fun times and in disagreements, too, so pay attention. The Dog energy can be a little over-sensitive sometimes, so try not to blame or point fingers if something goes wrong. Taking some time away from each other can help bring you back to one another eventually.
If you're already in a relationship, this year provides chances to take an important step around the solar eclipse of August 11. Whether you're thinking about moving in together, getting engaged, or committing to one another in marriage, count on friends and family to be right behind you, wanting to celebrate your love in a public setting. Building trust is crucial for all Ox natives this year, especially as you move into the late fall and early winter months. You're building something special together, and need to make sure your foundation is as sturdy as possible. Enjoy romantic nights in your own quirky fashion, by playing board games, or attending an arcade for some local color.
Finance - Money
You're so good with money that you seldom worry about it, and may even find that cash seems to come to you without much of a fuss.
During the year of the earth Dog, you're like a money magnet. Whatever you touch seems to turn to gold, and your ideas can be turned into an income stream you either do on the side, if you're already employed or as a full-on business, if you're feeling the pull of entrepreneurialism.
The solar eclipse of August 11 through the end of fall hold special financial gifts for you, so if you're ready to ask for a raise, step up your investing game, or even start up a sideline business. These "found" funds should be used solely for investment purposes since you won't notice if they're not there.
By year-end, you begin or add to a tidy nest egg, as long as you're willing to make this sacrifice.
Career - Work
While your sign gets along with the Dog, it's not the greatest match. During the year of the earth Dog, the same may be true of your career. Though you put so much effort into climbing the ladder last year, your efforts may not have been noticed the way you wanted.
This year, it's about slow, steady progress. Don't be in a hurry, because you may find that these plans fizzle out. If you're employed and looking for a way to get a better salary and perks, the best way is to show your loyalty to your employer, particularly around the solar eclipse of August 11. At this time, some may wonder what you bring to the table, and you're able to show them in no uncertain terms that you're a force to be reckoned with. In true Ox fashion, you're never afraid of a little heavy lifting, so if it takes extra work to launch your own business, you're good with it.
Partnerships benefit around the end of spring, when you're filled with energy and raring to go. Plan for success by year-end, as you meet one of your primary benchmarks" perhaps this can become your full-time job after all.
You're known for your strong constitution, Ox, but this year may mean you need some extra r-n-r as your body heals from the stress of last year.
In July and August, you're especially prone to summer colds and generally blah feelings, so make sure to rest up and drink plenty of water at this time. Going out with friends, with no real agenda, helps lift your spirits if you feel something coming on.
During the late spring and summer, you may find that taking more supplements, or switching up your diet a bit can get you the vitamins your body craves. Who knew you could be a smoothie person?
When it comes to fitness, you're up for trying new things, as long as they seem like things you could stick with. Better to get in four workouts a week doing what you love than none with something you have no real passion for.
