Zodiac Ox

What distinguishes the buffalo?

The purpose of the buffalo is hard work. He was used in the rice fields of China as a draft and pack animal, and so he can be harnessed to the plow without much fuss. He is probably the most patient and thoughtful of all the signs in Chinese astrology. He does not make big words, but lends a hand wherever necessary. The buffalo has the gift of inspiring confidence, and this is one of the main reasons why he succeeds in many things. In addition, he is tremendously industrious and efficient, which is why he brings prosperity and property. He is a prudent type who loves solitude. But despite his calm demeanor, he is a choleric. His outbursts of anger are extremely rare, but they are all the more violent. It is advisable never to irritate him - he could become dangerous. The Buffalo is not a type that likes to be in the limelight. He needs material security, but he does not strive for wealth and fame. It is enough for him to make a living. He stands by tradition and the tried and true. He has difficulty coping with change. If he is pushed to change his circumstances, he can be quite stubborn and unyielding. He vehemently rejects anything "newfangled". He will never tolerate his daughters wearing miniskirts or walking around "belly-less." Although he is generally reserved, he can also be talkative - if the situation requires it. Unfortunately, he is not always understood by those around him. This is because he lacks imagination and sensitivity. He is straightforward and knows no circumlocutions. It is not for nothing that the term buffalo stands for "ruffian".

The buffalo and its health

Sports and a lot of exercise are not part of the lifestyle of the leisurely buffalo. He is not a food lover, everything that tastes good is healthy in his eyes. Therefore, he will always struggle with his weight. Otherwise, he is brimming with health and vitality.

The buffalo and in the profession

Although the buffalo seems cumbersome, he has a quick perception and an alert mind. But he arranges the work in his own way. He will never pursue several interests at once, but will always concentrate on one thing at a time. Above all, he shows hard determination to finish his tasks.

The buffalo and love

The buffalo can be tender, devoted and sensual, but it completely lacks the sense of romance. The ideal partner is the rooster. Both are conservative and get along splendidly. The rat also suits the buffalo. Once she loves him, she remains faithful to him until death. With the monkey, the buffalo is fascinated, but to land with him, he lacks imagination. With the goat, caution is required. She is capricious and flighty, which could irritate the buffalo to white heat. Buffalo and tiger should stay out of each other's way. This connection could end in a bloody slaughter.
