I’ve always been a stargazer, loving anything to do with the heavens (planets & stars), and my interest extends to astrology too. Knowing that, it should come as no surprise that I find the zodiacs, both western and eastern, fun too.

This Chinese New Year is the Year of the Ox. Those born in these “Ox” years are known for their earthy, low-key, hard-working personalities. Like Taurus in the western zodiac, the Ox is the second animal featured in it’s 12-sign astrology.

What’s your Chinese Zodiac sign? According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with an animal sign, occurring in a 12-year cycle. Mine is the Goat.


The Year of the Horse comes back around in 2026.
