The picture of a grass eating herd of cattle comes into mind. The ox is very much connected to its environment and to nature, to peace and to harmony (as long as you don’t get him angry). Its place is the second in the new started zodiac cycle and such shows the way in a new beginning and a new path. There will be lots of thinking and planning, calculating and holding back, because this year will be the base of the next future. People will be more careful and waiting, less adventurous and safety will be more important than to take risks. A main subject in this year will be the caring and preservation of our environment, planet earth.
Due to its double earth combination (earth over the Ox) this year will be more stable and much quieter, than the preceding years. Many international contracts will be locked and there will be a new order. That doesn’t mean there will be no war, but at least it shouldn’t be a big world war.
There might be more accidents, which are connected earth (earthquake, landslides, house collapse…) and because of the total lack of the element fire there may be wild fires, explosions or problems and accidents in aviation.
Health wise problems, associated with earth like the stomach, intestines, cells and nutrition (cancer, diabetes, obesity, poisoning …) might come up more often. Moreover, this year (like almost all the others) is not good for weak hearts.
All of you being born in the years of Ox, Goat or Dog or having a problem on your Astrological Profile with the Ox or the element earth should be very careful and precautious this year and not take unnecessary risks. It will be a year of challenges and changes.
Watch the following:
- Avoid mountains or desserts.
- Be careful driving your car.
- Avoid driving thru tunnels.
- Watch your health.
- Take antioxidants.
- Don’t travel straight into the North- east direction.
- Take a Rat charm, the traditional Chinese protection for this year.
