The Ox prefers established methods and regular routines. Ox people want to build for long-term security. They are dignified and self-reliant. This is a person who likes rules and expects everyone to follow them. They will love their family deeply, but have high expectations and can be quite demanding.
Ox will say what they think and refuse to compromise their basic principles. Although they are generally calm, on a bad day an Ox can be uncompromising, demanding, and emotionally distant. They are enormously patient, but will be pushed only so far. An angry Ox is frightening to behold. An Ox can also carry a grudge or hurt feelings much to their own detriment.
In love, Ox can be strong and straightforward, rather then romantic and impulsive. It takes time for an Ox to grow into an intimate relationship. Once an Ox makes a commitment, they are stubbornly loyal no matter what comes. They are worth their weight in gold.
