The Ox Chinese Horoscope 2020
2020 is the Year of the white Metal Rat. A new cycle begins in 2020 for everyone as it’s the beginning of the new zodiac cycle. The final animal in the Chinese zodiac – Pig had its year last year 2019.
The Ox also known as the Cow, is the second sign in the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese New Year is set by a complicated formula, part of which relates to the first new (or dark) moon of the year, so the Chinese New Year begins at a different time every year according to the lunar cycle. You were born in the Year of the Ox if you were born during one of these periods:
Feb 11 1937 – Jan 30 1938 | Jan 29 1949 – Feb 16 1950 | Feb 15 – Feb 4 1962 | Feb 3 1973 – Jan 22 1974 | Feb 20 1985 – Feb 8 1986 | Feb 7 1997 – Jan 27 1998 | Jan 26 2009 – Feb 13 2010
If you were born before the first date mentioned but in the same year, you are the animal sign of the Rat e.g. born in 1937 before February 11, you are the sign of the Rat. Or born in 1949 before January 29 you are the sign of the Rat and so on.
In Chinese astrology, Ox main personality traits are… Conservative | Stable | Practical | Responsible | Stubborn | Reliable | Cautious | Hesitant | Honest | Moody
2020 Life, Love & Loot Prospects
Overall your Ox horoscope indicates some good luck this year. You started planting seeds over the last few years and in 2020 the harvest should come ready. You will reap the rewards of what you’ve sown in the past.
The Year of the Rat is associated with cold water in the winter months, whereas Cow is associated with frozen earth. If you already have a lot of water in your chart, then too much water in the Year of the Rat could result in ‘wet diseases’ – viruses, flus, bladder and kidney issues or emotional meltdowns with tears. Even so, it’s likely to be a pretty good year overall. During 2020, Ox should ensure they have 20 minutes of sun daily and in the winter months especially to get sufficient vitamin D. Ox would do well to engage in sufficient outdoor activities during 2020.
American Senator Elizabeth Warren is an Ox who is likely to strike strong difficulty with adversaries in 2020 despite good luck in many areas of life. In the run up to the 2020 elections, emotions will run high so she should keep a tight rein on what she communicates. Better to walk away rather than get drawn into an argument which she will find difficult to win.
In the Year of the Rat 2020, water is present. Ox also has the element of water along with earth therefore Ox and Rat can work together to achieve goals. People could appear who will help Ox accomplish things generally but also in career.
In 2020 knowledge and wisdom are also likely to come to the Ox, you could consider retraining or study. Although there are many favourable energies available this year for Ox, if you do have a dispute with someone, it is probably better to walk away. In the Year of the Rat, Ox could meet its match with some very clever or cunning adversaries. Even though life looks pretty good in many respects, it is possible that Rat energies will conflict with Ox, so don’t be too stubborn if the situation looks like it is going south!
The other thing to be aware of is that sometimes during 2020, Ox may feel tired or a bit emotionally flat. It may be difficult to keep up with everything going on this year. Take a rest, you need time out, go on a short break and enjoy yourself dear Ox. Rat has more available energy than Ox, so don’t try to keep up when you’re tired.
The Year of the Rat is a great year for Ox to change jobs, study or start a new relationship.
Your Ox horoscope indicates if you’re a coupled Ox you may find your relationship deepening in 2020. You may wish to renew vows, have a baby or buy/build a home together. A few years ago you may have ended a relationship or changed boundaries around a relationship in some way. Now your love life looks better as the energies are expanding around you again. Life is just a series of contractions and expansions and 2020 is a time with some expansion in your life.
If you haven’t found a partner, 2020 may bring good love luck to you! You’re likely to meet more people, form more friendships and the chances are you could have a romance if you wish.
Ox gets along very well romantically with Rat, Snake and Rooster. Tiger, Dragon, Horse and Sheep may be problematic however. It’s love or hate with the Pig however as passions can run very high either way.
You can start a relationship with the right person and you are likely to have several chances to meet Mr or Ms Right!
Oxen or Cows are likely to have lucky money coming towards them in 2020! Ox may also decide to set some goals and successfully save towards them.
In terms of career, if you decide to get another job, do your research first but it is likely you will go into a position with more $$$ in 2020. Don’t rush this decision, it could take a bit of time in fact. You could go into business for yourself or become aware of business opportunities even if you stay in your current job. You could start a side hustle with a bit of pin money on the side in 2020. If you go into business or partnership with anyone, make sure you are compatible first. Rats are generally good as business partners but Pigs are a bit iffy with Oxen.
Investment returns are likely to be better this year for Ox. You should however seek financial advice from a professional especially in these times as a recession is very likely in the next year or two. If you already have a lot of water in your chart, then be very careful. Too much water results in flooding and you could be very emotional. Be in touch with your emotions but stay grounded in practical reality.
Have a wonderful Year of the Rat, it’s a time of reward and enjoyment for you dear Ox!
