So, these people tend to be strong and sensitive in emotion, with quiet, shy and reserved characters.
The Piscean Ox is naturally friendly, but due to their bashfulness they tend to take time to make friends. When they do socialize they prefer the companionship of a few rather than many friends.

A Piscean Ox, with his or her good balance of mind, tends to see the world as it is without any rose-colored glasses.

A Piscean Ox is sincere and patient in relationships with people they know well and like. With new people, they are a little shyer, and can sometimes appear aloof or snobbish at first meeting. The Piscean Ox takes time to choose a life-long partner who they have to feel completely comfortable with and whom they trust implicitly. These individuals are romantic and passionate, but they are also realistic in their view of the expectations and responsibilities of partnerships. They also find these pragmatic and loving views useful for parenting in later life.
These Pisceans are excellent at making things by hand, and are often highly suited to jobs working with their hands.

However, it can prevent them from taking advantage of all life has to offer. The Piscean Ox is hesitant to grab opportunities, in case it puts them in the spotlight. This can mean they sometimes miss out on reaching their full potential. With adequate encouragement, these personalities can become a tad more confident.
