The Chinese astrological symbol of the Ox represents a solid, determined, self-sufficient and mostly undemonstrative personality. This animal's resolute influence is well matched to the typical disciplined traits of a Western astrology's Capricorn sun sign. If a Capricorn is born in the Year of the Ox, their resulting personality is believed to be very strong-willed. The Capricorn Ox will be rather determined in their mannerisms and ambitious, and appear to rely on nobody but themselves. A Capricorn Ox is organized and decisive, but also a little reserved, not a person that likes to draw attention to him or herself.
The Capricorn Ox is usually a practical person who is a hard worker and sees most things as easily achievable with a little effort. These are not complainers or pessimists, and they will take on responsibility easily, and take it seriously. They tend to not let work stress them out too much, while still appreciating the importance of their responsibilities. A Capricorn Ox tends to have big aspirations in life, and may sometimes occasionally be relentless in their pursuit of them. These personalities like money, and they are usually quite apt at handling it and unlikely to be tempted by gambling or frivolous buys.
Home life is important to the Capricorn Ox, as it gives him a stable base from where he can build for the future. These are not particularly sociable personalities that like going out, and so relaxation periods will more often than not be centered around being indoors. These Capricorns are always thinking ahead and planning their next move. They prefer to make decisions on their own, but will be prepared to listen and consider other people's advice if it is offered. A Capricorn Ox does not generally believe in luck - they seem to assume that you make your own path to good fortune with perseverance.
A Capricorn Ox will search for soulmates that will help them with their ambitions and plans in life. These individuals are inclined to decide from a young age the things they want to achieve, acquire and aim for. It is almost impossible to change their decisions once they have set them in motion. If a Capricorn Ox finds a supportive and not too overly-sensitive partner, they will be appreciative, affectionate and protective towards them. These individuals are as determined to make relationships work as they are with their everything else in life.
The rigidness of the Capricorn Ox's outlook makes them sometimes so stubborn that they would rather lose out than give in. They can be far too obstinate for their own good at times, and have a tendency to sulk a lot, too. These little weaknesses in the Capricorn Ox personality do not usually bother anyone else. These negative traits can make these individuals angry with themselves, and this can in turn cause them to get stressed. They need to think a little longer before being so instantly dismissive of things. If they manage to do this, then their stubbornness and its resulting stress may lessen.
