The Year of the Sheep will be another fairly difficult year for the Ox. However, it will turn out to be a better year than 2002 was.
There will be challenges at work this year and, not one to believe in luck, the Ox will work hard for any gains made this year. The Ox likes stability and the flighty changes that you see happening at your work place will make your uncomfortable - to say the least. Take heart, some of your work colleagues will also find the changes disconcerting and will look to the Ox for guidance and support. Timing is everything this year. Be aware of opportunities and seize them, especially in April, July and October.
In the Year of the Sheep, it is important for the Ox to take of his health. It would be wise to seek pleasures away from work. Taking up a new hobby could be just the boost the Ox is looking for. Regular exercise would also be a big boon to let off some of that steam from all the frustrations at work. Consult your physician first.
Financially, the Ox needs to remain cautious. As it was with 2002, 2003 will be expensive. Try not to borrow any money and if you do - check the fine print on the contract before you sign on the dotted line. This is not the year to speculate or invest. Be very careful or money could be lost.
One favorable aspect of the year is the Ox's relationships with others. The love and support of family and friends will be important. Ox's home life is particularly favored and will bring the Ox much happiness. If you ask, you will also benefit from the advice and aid of others. Get out and socialize more this year. While this goes against Ox's basic instinct, this year it will be highly beneficial. No one is so rich that they couldn't use another friend. February and March are good months for meeting people. April, November and December will see considerable social activities. A new romance is also in the cards this year for unattached Oxen.
Many Oxen will use this year to their advantage by taking on new challenges.
For all it's difficulties, the Year of the Sheep holds some interesting aspects for the Ox. All in all it will be a brighter year than the Ox has seen in some time. Rejoice - and - SOCIALIZE!
