Chinese Horoscope Ox Compatibility:
The Ox get along well with the Rat, Rooster and Snake. But the Chinese compatibility with the Dog and the Sheep is very bad.
The image of the Chinese zodiac Ox is that of a stable creature, methodical, and ever-diligent. When working at a task, Ox is very detail-oriented and will ensure that everything is done correctly along the way. Due to this mind-set, the Ox personality has a tendency to be seen as solid and unyielding. Their quiet nature tends to bring the impression to others that they don’t know how to relax, and their sense of humor tends to be dry.
When in a social situation, Ox Chinese sign tend to turn inward, watching the crowd without participating. This can manifest in an unyielding personality, one who insists that things be done their way, or get out of their way. They’ll give good solid advice, and can be relied upon to be utterly predictable and trustworthy. Outwardly they may seem to not understand passion, and to be without ambition. This isn’t entirely accurate, but they do require a solid support system to flourish.

Always eyes on the goal, but with the patience to see the road ahead clearly, without questions of right and wrong. They have a tendency towards empathy, a level head, and a strong tendency towards honesty.
The term ‘bull-headed’ can be an appropriate term to apply to the Ox zodiac sign. They’ve a tendency towards shyness, and do not communicate well. Their stolidness can, if allowed to run out of control, can lead to an inability to change path, to see other ways around a situation. Because of this Ox can often be stuck in their old ways, and be utterly unwilling to see an alternative.
In the workplace, the Chinese Ox is a solid and reliable employee. They’ll ensure that any work you give them will be done efficiently and completely, with every T crossed and I dotted. They may not work quickly, as their goal is to ensure it was done correctly the first time.
Trying to get the Ox man or Ox woman to change their methods can result in them digging in their hooves and ceasing to work. With careful harnessing, an Ox can be led into a different path, but they must be provoked properly to prevent them becoming intractable.

The Chinese Ox sign can make an excellent boss, they are solid and reliable, and won’t take undue risks. You can guarantee that their staff and business will come before most other things.
The worst case to catch them in is if they lack a vision. The Ox will lock on it’s eyes and lead the company, your team, whatever they’re in charge of, right where it wants to go. Knowing when to ask for a raise is of paramount importance if dealing with an Ox boss. They’ll know what your performance is, it’s the kind of thing they keep a focus on. You’ll also want to take into account the financial environment, the Ox personality certainly will.
Chinese Ox As A Co-Worker:
As a co-worker, the Ox is a wonderful companion if the path ahead is clear and laid out. They aren’t incredibly sociable, but they can be a companion in the workplace relatively well. Don’t expect a lively and vibrant partner, but know that their work will be consistent and reliable. It can serve those who work with these Ox characteristics to stand as a barrier between them and outside instability.
The Ox male and Ox female are not well suited to dealing with the inconsistencies of the commanding staff, or a changing workplace. If you work with Ox, learn their patterns, and how to interact with them. At that point feed changes and updates to them based on this information. The Ox will be able to focus on their task, a thing they’re well suited for.
The Chinese Ox takes great comfort in having a strong financial base. The same care they apply to everything is, in turn, applied to financial matters. When making a decision to spend, they consider all angles involved, long term payouts, and short term rewards.
It is not to say that the Ox sign are incapable of spending money on pure luxury items. But they will be aware of how it plays into their over-all scheme, and you can guarantee that they can afford it. This can be a problem, because their caution can lead to an unwillingness to spend.
Dating A Chinese Zodiac Ox:
Ox in relationships is, as in all else, steady and reliable. They’ll carry the burdens without complaint, and will do so as what they consider part of their obligation to the relationship. They don’t handle clingy partners well, as they are strongly independent and rely mostly on themselves, but can serve to carry anyone through a struggle.
At first while dating an Ox person, they can feel unapproachable. Their lack of open sociability creates a barrier to forming new relationships, but when they do, they bond strongly with them. It’s important to keep talk of your past love life quiet. The Ox can be extremely territorial. While they may acknowledge you have a past, it’s best if you don’t dwell on it or make it a part of your past they have to face to directly. While they will take on any children from your past as part of their family, don’t expect the people born in the Year of the Ox to ever have a warm relationship with your ex.
The Chinese Ox can be a surprisingly involved lover, once you get the engine running. They do love life and will engage in every sexual pleasure one can provide them with, especially if they involve food, drink and physical intimacy. Their preferences run to those who are earthy in their nature, round and full of pleasure.
An air of confidence and authority, mixed with strict behavior and a ready earthy laugh are absolutely central to the personality of those the Ox choose to spend their lives with. They are enthusiastic and passionate in the act of love, and their solid calm exterior holds a rumbling volcano of untapped lust and fire.
