The hardworking Ox knows how to get his way – and he can be a little a stubborn when fighting for it. Oxen are great leaders – they make great CEOs, coaches and mentors. An Ox placed into a lowly position will figure out how to push his way to the top, even if it means taking out several other people along the way. But that doesn’t mean Oxen can’t be gentle. Their positive attitude and willingness to help others are what make them so successful as leaders. They become frustrated when faced with challenges they cannot overcome, but they will ultimately learn how to adapt – or just barrel through it.
