The Ox is the second of the 12-year cycle of animals in the Chinese Zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The Chinese word for ox translates to bull, water buffalo, cow, or any bovine family member. Each ox/cow year is associated with a different element of the Five Phases: fire, water, wood, metal, and earth. This Year of the Ox begins on February 12, 2021, and is a year of the Metal Ox.
Suppose you were born under the sign of the ox. In that case, you possess great strength and endurance, you are meticulous in planning, you persevere with determination, and you recharge your energy with a slow and steady accumulation. Add the element of metal, and you are decisive in your actions, strong-willed, loyal, and reliable; you can also be blunt and stubborn. The ox personality makes a good leader, hard worker, and a trustworthy friend.
Our OHM Year of the Ox bead is meditating deeply on the example of the Buddha. His eyes are closed, his front hoofs form the Apaan Mudra gesture, his hind legs crossed in the lotus position, and his flowing robe is open to reveal a rounded belly and strands of Mala beads. Our adorable metal ox is indeed accumulating renewed energy in a quiet, calm, steady moment of serene peace. Add our tranquil ox to your bracelet for good luck throughout the year and to remind you of your inner strength and serenity.
Besides, they are a cute little piece of ox, amiright?
