The Year of the Ox, which emphasizes prosperity through fortitude and dependable, hard labour, begins January 26, 2009. I am the Year of the Pig/Wild Boar in the Chinese New Year calendar and even redesigned my web site Groovee Fortune with a Karate Pig in 2007 the Year of the Golden Pig. My husband is an Ox, so I decided to see what was in store for 2009.
“Although we were warned of the Rat’s bite, many were not prepared for the upheavals and misfortunes that hit the world in 2008.
The effects of the Rat year will continue to spill over to the Ox Year, so we will still feel the impact. But with resilience and hard work, we can ride out the storm.” Insight into the Ox year – Sun 2 Surf
Ox – You may have been disappointed by a relatively modest 2008, but as your sign enters the heaven, the groundwork you laid should start paying off in 2009. Don’t expect fireworks, but success should arrive both in your family life and in business. This is a great year to achieve personal ambitions as well as take action on major decisions. You’ll find both family and friends supportive of new plans.
Considering my husband started his company, Traveling Bistro, last year, I like the sounds of this prediction. Go OX! Go OX! It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday! Wait! It’s actually your whole yearcuz a birthday can only spill into a few weeks before getting messing.
Best of Luck to all in the Chinese New Year!!!!! In honor of this year and my husband’s new business, I offer up a Year of the Ox Recipe for Ginger-Steamed Wild Black Bass with Stir-Fried Chinese Greens and a wine list to ring in the New Year!
