February 12th, 2021 begins the Year of the Silver Ox in the ancient Taoist astrology system. In the modern world this is defined as the Chinese Lunar New Year based on the our Moon’s lunar cycles.
But what is a Silver Ox and how will this affect the fortunes of the Zodiac animals and constellations signs? What does this mean for the world and for individuals? Let me tell you.
Cows, Bulls, water buffalo and oxen have featured in the landscape of humanity since the dawn of cave art, in the history of human kind. Ox is a scared animal in the world’s oldest religions, a symbol of wealth in the marketplace and a cultural expressions of nourishment.
In feng shui astrology a winter born Ox is said to always be cared for since they do not work in the winter when the Earth is frozen. The Ox sign falls in the winter month of January, Northeast on the compass and the constellation of Capricorn.
Ox are well known for being stubborn creatures of habit but with surprising serenity and team spirit they are the producers of all things useful. The Ox is a well mannered and easy going creature who is rarely riled but if tested they can make quite a ruckus.
The Metal Ox
The Ox sign comes up once every 12 years on the cosmic clock. Silver is based on the year ending in a number 1 defining a Yin, Metal element. There are 5 elements and 2 heavenly stems of Yin or Yang. This means a Silver Ox year happens once every 60 years.
The last time a Silver Ox was born on Earth was back in 1961. Probably the most famous Silver Ox is the former American President Barack Obama and the most famous Silver Ox who is now deceased, but who’s memory with live-on forever, is the Princess of Wales, Diana.
A Cow Bell
The most notable feature of the Ox’s character is that they govern status and are often very attractive. A distinguished attribute of a Metal Ox is it’s ability to endure all manner of harsh conditions. The nature of a metal sign has an uncanny ability to mold to their circumstances.
Yet for all this glamour and substance they still are barn yard, beasts of burden that like to graze and roam around for greener pastures. They have the magical power to get what they want by simply batting an eyelash or charging headlong into battle.
The Ox is part of the Mystic Triad with the Bird and Snake. Each with their own special powers. Snakes have magnetic charms, Bird’s are reborn from fire and the Ox has 7 stomachs or Chakras; as a holy scared, sign. The Red Horse is the Ox’s Peach Blossom sign.
Oxen are theatrical types who are often found in legends of enduring tales of woe where they perform impossible tasks. Metal is an element that is considered cold and hard to get close to. Yet those who fashion it to a task are well rewarded for their extra effort.
The Coming Ox Year
Expect a hard slog of a year with a wistful eye toward lofty goals. Tasks will be herculean and battles are hard fought. Yet there will be a homey, domestic side to this year’s essence. Home life will flourish and common interests will be shared. Ox will bring back wise administration.
As herd animals the Oxen are family oriented seeking personal security for their near and dear. They are not far flung idealists, they are practical planners. Cows are fun pals with a soft side that is comforting. Ox are the salt of the Earth and will pursue goals that are real and attainable.
The Cutting Edge
in the cycles of harmony and conflict:
Metal cuts Wood indicating incomes will be thinned and hard assets will grow. Fire is friends with Metal so we’ll forge ahead at all costs. Water exhausts Metal making this an emotionally draining year. Earth is weakened by Metal extracted for resources to create, balance.
Hard sacrifices will be made in the coming, Metal Ox year. New tools to improve production will evolve. Building infrastructure will inspire timely inventions that last beyond comprehension and promote future stability. This Ox year sets up a framework for a legacy of good, long-lasting.
