ACHIEVEMENTS AND SOLIDITY FOR ALL SIGNS IN THE YEAR OF THE OX
Determined, patient and prosperous, the year of the Metal Ox will bring achievements and results through dedication, discipline and hard work. This will also be a year of determined and determined energy to overcome life’s challenges.
It is very likely that 2021 will start with some difficulties, but there will be no obstacle that you cannot overcome – and the secret is not to look for shortcuts. To be successful, the Metal Ox imposes its most conservative values, and asks you to seek solutions in more traditional ways.
In the Chinese Horoscope, the Ox is a very methodical and determined worker. So expect 2021 to be a year in which these characteristics will be rewarded; and the most fortunate signs will be those that try hardest.
The Yin energy, specific to the Ox sign in the Chinese zodiac, will be quite harsh. This will be a year in which we will fully feel the weight of our responsibilities, and it will be necessary to redouble our efforts to accomplish anything.
THE INFLUENCE OF THE METAL YIN ELEMENT IN THE YEAR OF THE OX
In the Chinese tradition, Metal is a symbol of harvest, and represents autumn. Therefore, when we have this element associated with the sign of the Ox, we highlight its durable, resistant and loyal aspect.
Many of those who have worked hard, dedicated themselves and even gone through difficult times, can wait for the long-awaited phase of renovation. The time has come to turn your back on the past, with no regrets, just new ambitions and strategies.
In order to learn how to properly handle Metal and extract its full potential, it is necessary to understand its simultaneous aspect of rigidity and flexibility.
After all, while Metal Yang (which we observed in 2020 in the year of the Rat) can be associated with the strength of a sword or scythe – which attacks, protects and reaps – Yin (female) energy is an adornment, a fine silverware , an indispensable tool. So don’t be afraid of what the future holds. Believe in yourself and see this new year as an opportunity to beautify, nourish and thrive.
“Expect the best, prepare for the worst and accept whatever comes.”
WHAT DOES THE CHINESE NEW YEAR 2021 MEAN?
We, who are used to Western astrology, may find it strange that an animal rules the year. But for the Chinese, this is a very important and respected tradition. They believe that the year does in fact have a lot of influence on their ruling animal’s energy.
This tradition is believed to have started with Buddha, who invited the beings of nature to celebrate the Chinese New Year. But, only 12 animals went to the party. Then, as a tribute to the guests present, Buddha gave each of them a sign of the Chinese zodiac.
The animals of the Chinese zodiac are: ox, goat, rabbit, dog, horse, dragon, rooster, monkey, pig, rat, snake and tiger. Each of them governs a lunar year, which is different from the western solar year. This is why the Chinese New Year is not celebrated on the first day of January, as it is in most countries.
In 2021, the animal of the Chinese New Year is the Metal Ox, with Yin polarity. The Chinese believe that signs have a connection with the soul of human beings and that the ruling animal can influence the spiritual experience from its characteristics. The combination of the element and its polarity can have important meanings for everyone’s life. See below, a little more about the characteristics of the Metal Ox in Yin.

THE KEY TO BALANCE AND PROSPERITY
As we already said, the Metal Ox has the energy of three elements (Earth, Water and Metal). However, according to Chinese tradition, for all energies to be in harmony, it is necessary to balance all 5 elements.
In 2021, consider adopting the colors green (wood) and red (fire) in your clothes, accessories and home decor. A tip to increase your luck is to buy a green wallet, with just some detail in red (it is believed that the excess of Fire would make the money “burn” through your fingers).
