Lunar Year of the Ox
The lunar year of the ox is the second of the 12 animals that are celebrated annually during each 12-year cycle. Those born during the year of the ox, are said to be influence by traits somewhat reflective in the general behavior of the animal. For the ox, this includes such traits as ambitious, hard working, steady, honest, and patient. The years designated in the 12 year cycle for the year of the ox are: 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021, and each succeeding twelfth year.
