Chinese astrology describes the Ox as an adaptable and dependable personality that is a deep and methodical thinker. These reliable and thoughtful character traits are believed to be passed on to all those born in their astrological year. When this applies to a Western astrology Sagittarian, the Ox's influence of versatility and reliability are quite strong. A Sagittarian Ox is usually friendly, honest, considerate and open-minded about most things. They are a little reserved, but do enjoy communicating with others and discussing many of the questions that life in general presents.
A Sagittarian Ox is the kind of person that always looks for the good in other people. They are not easily fooled by situations, but will try to stay impartial and not prejudge when assessing others. They appear to have good instincts and will generally follow them to evaluate situations as well as individuals. Sagittarian Oxes have fairly optimistic and genuinely helpful temperaments, and do not have a problem fitting in anywhere. They are hard workers who normally enjoy work that is productive and challenging, as they like to keep busy. These Sagittarians like habitual activities, but do not like jobs that involve doing the same thing every day.
The Sagittarian Ox is mainly straightforward and uncomplicated; they are not argumentative and do not tend to be too demanding of others. These personalities will sometimes find it difficult to share their anxieties, as they are inclined to keep things bottled up. A Sagittarian Ox can be a secret worrier, and may occasionally become short tempered if they have things on their mind. For the most part, these characters are cheerful and seem to take life at a steady pace. They do like the security of routines and familiar surroundings, but their open-mindedness makes them fairly flexible and tolerant with changes. They are always willing to try new things and listen to different ideas and views.
The family is important to a Sagittarian Ox, and they attempt to make it top of their list of priorities. They will often build their social life around family members, and stick to having just a few close friends. The Sagittarian Ox is not overly sociable, and will usually prefer the company of others who know them well. In personal relationships they are kind, loving, generous and surprisingly playful. Their normally slightly repressed emotions are free to unfold in soulmate relationships. With the right partner, they can relax enough to get close and open up.
Sagittarian Oxes are mainly forthright and respectful, so people can be quite taken aback when they are not. These Sagittarian's weakness of personality is the tendency to be a bit outspoken. Sometimes their shy, easygoing natures are angered by something or someone, and they will retaliate. A Sagittarian Ox will on rare occasions lose his or her cool, and will become blunt at their best, and disrespectful at their worse. They can be very hurtful with words, but do not often mean what they say in anger. They do have to be really irate for this weakness to the surface.
