2020 was a difficult year, and nearly everyone is happy to put the Year of the Rat behind them. There are high expectations that 2021 will be a better year for us all. In Chinese astrology, 2021 is the Year of the Ox, and according to Chinese beliefs this will be a good year for some, but a difficult year for others. For success in the year of the Ox, check out our top tips from leading astrologists and ensure you have a fortuitous 2021.
Characteristics of the Ox
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Ox is known for strength, determination, diligence and dependability. The Ox is considered hard working, reliable, patient and predictable. If you are looking to succeed in business, work, relationships or love, you’ll need to adopt some of these characteristics.
2021, Lucky for Some!
2021, the Year of the Ox will be an auspicious year for individuals born Monkey, Dog, Horse or Tiger. However, if you were born in the year of Rabbit, Goat or Ox, then 2021 is unlikely to be any better than 2020. The best advice for these individuals is to tread cautiously and be patient. You’ll need to work extra hard for success in this year.

Health and Well Being in Year of Ox
The Ox is hardworking, so remaining healthy and strong for 2021 is essential. If your local gym is open, now is a great time to sign up. Otherwise, adopt a workout routine which helps build strength and stamina. For well being, it is very important to get enough sleep during the year ahead.

Education and Employment
To have success in education and employment, hard work and diligence is going to be essential during the year of the ox.
The best advice for the year ahead is spend some time on personal and professional development. If there is a skill that you’ve been planning to learn, or master, this is the year to do so. The hard work you invest during Year of the Ox, will bring bountiful rewards in the future.
Success in Business and Finance
After the global economic disruption of 2020, caution is advised for anyone looking for success in business and finance during the Year of the Ox. You’ll need to be careful and prepared before starting any new ventures or investments. 2021 is not a year for taking big risks.
As 2020 reminded us all, financial planning does not always go as planned. If you are to succeed in investing you need to keep focussed on the long term. Save regularly, save sensibly and building wealth slowly – with the determination of an ox!

Relationships and Love
In contrast to the nature of the Ox, the year 2021 looks set to be a year of surprises and upheavals in love and relationships. Last year was difficult for many, but unfortunately 2021 may not be so different, especially when it comes to relationships.
In love and relationships, the Year of the Ox will be the year of change, quick decisions, unexpected adventures and passionate love affairs. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 2021 is the Year of the Ox and is also predicted to be the year of break-ups.
