For the passionate and sensual Ox woman, a casual relationship will never do. Let’s explore the Chinese zodiac and find the Ox the meaningful union she desires. It may be difficult to get to know the Ox woman as she doesn’t like large gatherings and is not likely to go out to noisy, crowded clubs or parties. She’s not a recluse; she just prefers intimate interactions with her tight circle of friends and family, to which she is very loyal. Once you get the chance to know the Ox woman as a friend or a lover, you will find a steadfast companion, whose love grows even stronger with time. She puts a high premium on real and lasting relationships, and will never fall for flighty or meaningless partnerships.
The Chinese Zodiac and the Five Elements
The Chinese zodiac is based on the lunar calendar year. Each New Year begins on the date of the first New Moon in Aquarius, occurring anytime between mid-January to mid-February. The Chinese zodiac comprises 12 animals, each representing one lunar year; and the year in which a person is born determines their individual animal sign. Knowing a person’s Chinese zodiac sign can give you an overall look into the world of romantic compatibility and aid you in your quest to find true love. As you will see below, there are many levels to the zodiac. Consulting a trained psychic or astrologer can help you navigate this intricate path and get a deeper glimpse into the world of Eastern astrology.
The next level in determining romantic compatibility is the elements, of which there are five, Water, Earth, Fire, Wood and Metal. Each animal sign takes a turn in each element. Here is an example of Chinese New Year dates and the elements they represent in the Year of the Ox:
Earth Ox January 29, 1949 to February 16, 1950
The Earth Ox has her more outrageous temper tendencies calmed by the Earth’s energy. She is loyal and dependable to her closest relationships and pretty lucky financially, too.
Fire Ox February 11, 1937 to January 30, 1938
The Fire Ox can be a powerful and dynamic personality and she likes to be in charge. She expects loyalty and gives it equally in return, but combining Fire with the Oxen energy can also give you someone who is sometimes prone to explosive outbursts.
Metal Ox February 15, 1961 to February 4, 1962
The Metal Ox is so wrapped up in her ambition to be successful that she may overlook what is right at her feet. However, if she’s sure that you are a loyal friend, she will preserve and protect your relationship to the end.
Water Ox February 3, 1973 to January 22, 1974
The Water Ox enjoys Water’s more fluid and intuitive properties. She can be prone to quiet moods, but she is also sensitive to the needs of others and this makes her a special person to have in your life.
Wood Ox February 20, 1985 to February 8, 1986
The Wood Ox is the more boisterous of the Oxen. These Oxen live on the surface of emotion (just as Wood floats on Water) and can go from explosive firebomb to affectionate lover, all in the same day.
Another way to look at your sign and how it relates to others is to know your sign’s trine. As the name would suggest, a trine is a set of three animals that could potentially hold soulmate capability. For the Ox Woman, her trine consists of the Ox, the Rooster and the Snake. Although the Rooster and Snake may match well with the Ox, that should not preclude her from looking at all the signs for a possible love relationship. Of course, consulting a gifted psychic or astrologer is the best way to get insight into your individual chart and put you on the path to finding that true love.
Here is an overview of how the Ox gets along with the rest of the animals of the Chinese zodiac. Let’s see who may or may not be a potential love interest:
Trines in Chinese Astrology
In the Chinese zodiac, a trine is a group of three animal signs that share similar characteristics. Since there are twelve animals, there are four trines. The Rabbit is a member of the Fourth Trine, along with the Sheep and the Pig. All three of these animals are largely ruled by beauty, compassion and intuition. The three signs joined within the same trine will all be compatible. They’ll understand and fulfill the needs of their partner, so the pairings will have an excellent chance of achieving a long, happy union.
Compatibility With Other Chinese Zodiac Signs
Rat ( 鼠 ) 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
This could be a very rewarding relationship for both. The Ox seeks security and the Rat provides it. The Rat could also be the most successful at softening some of Ox’s rougher edges.
Ox ( 牛 ) 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
xAnother born in the Year of the Ox does make them a surefire bet. All work and no play make this a pretty serious and stuffy union. Neither one will stop working toward a secure future long enough to enjoy the moment at hand.
Tiger ( 虎 ) 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010
The conservative Ox and the rebellious Tiger have just one thing in common; they’re both too stubborn to see the other’s point of view.
Rabbit ( 兔 ) 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
The indulgent Rabbit and the disciplined Ox each offer something the other lacks in themselves. Affection and appreciation for the differences between them goes a long way to making this work.
Dragon ( 龍 ) 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000
Compromise is the name of the game for this couple. The extroverted Dragon and conservative Ox need to have a common goal to work toward in order to keep love alive, but it is possible.
Snake ( 蛇 ) 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001
The Snake is part of Ox’s trine, and therefore, a potential soulmate. This is a case of Yin meets Yang, where two seemingly different personalities are really each other’s missing puzzle piece, an absolute perfect fit.
Horse ( 馬 ) 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002
The outgoing and unpredictable Horse is not a good match for the Ox Woman. She finds him unreliable and hyperactive and he finds her too quiet and a bit boring.
Sheep ( 羊 ) 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003
The Ram is fluid and artistic, unlike the Ox who relies on structure and stability. The Ram doesn’t mind living by Ox’s clock, as long as it has no hands. Major compromise is needed on both sides for this to work.
Monkey ( 猴 ) 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004
The fun-loving Monkey and the introspective Ox have excellent rapport, that is, once they get to know each other. Unfortunately, getting there may be a hurdle. Patience perseveres.
Rooster ( 雞 ) 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005
As one-third of the Ox’s trine, this would be a perfect partner. Roosters possess similar traits such as dedication and a sense of responsibility. Compensating for any differences between them seems to solidify the bond.
Dog ( 狗 ) 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006
The upside of this union is their commitment to the relationship. However, the Dog is expressive and outspoken and may feel the regimented Ox is holding his leash a bit too tight. It can work, but both must learn to overlook the small stuff.
Pig ( 豬 ) 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007
Attracted sexually from the start, this pair just may have a chance. The charming Pig attracts the Ox Woman with little effort, but due to some basic differences, a lasting relationship may not be written in the stars.
Let the Chinese zodiac be a guide to finding the love in your life. A professional psychic or astrologer can help navigate the way so you can start living the life you were meant to live.
