On February 12th, 2021, we say goodbye to the year of the rat and usher in a brand new energy; the Chinese Year of the Ox is upon us.

CHINESE NEW YEAR OF THE Ox DATES:

  • Year of the Ox Begins: February 12, 2021
  • Year of the Ox Ends (and Year of the Tiger begins: February 1, 2022)

Last year, the rat marked the start of a new era … but possibly not in the way the little rodent thought he would when the year began (yeah, looking at you COVID).

This year, the hard-working, studious and disciplined Ox is bringing an altogether different vibe. This year, it’s all about making things count.

And according to Pocket Chinese Almanac authors and translators Joanna C. Lee and Ken Smith, there should be a simple mantra that you should live by this year…

Keep Your Head Down

In essence, Lee says that the Year of the Ox is a holding pattern of sorts. Overall, unlike the ominous predictions of his rodent predecessor (for which Lee predicted a less than ideal year ahead), the Ox doesn’t have any foreboding… it’s just that he doesn’t hold anything overly interesting either!

Essentially, it’s important that you use this year to lay foundations and put in work… almost in preparations for the Year of the Tiger in 2022 (which is bound to be much more exciting!)…

And with Western Astrology predicting a year of challenges in terms of questioning the status quo (especially due to the three Saturn-Uranus Squares this year), it may be easier said than done to just fly under the radar.

That said, there’s magic in quietly achieving, getting your ducks in a row and doing the groundwork while keeping it to yourself. Trust the Universe and do the work; discipline, structure and hard work don’t always mean ‘boring’…

They can make all the difference in setting yourself up for future success.

So, keep your head down, starchild. Better days are ahead.
