The Year of the Ox is the second in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. Each time through the Zodiac, the lunar calendar features the same 12 animals in the same order. The calendar always starts with the Year of the Mouse and concludes the Year of the Pig. The ox would have been first in the cycle had the mouse not jumped off his back on the way to a meeting with the Jade Emperor to arrive first.
Oxen have been used in agricultural societies dating back to 4,000 BCE to help plow fields and drive carts. Oxen are said to be hardworking and reliable. Those born under the sign of the ox in the lunar cycle are said to be intelligent, hardworking, and reliable while never demand praise.
