Happy New Year!

We wake up this morning in the Year of the Ox, under the leadership of the world’s current most famous Ox – Barack Obama. Born in August 1961, Obama is an Ox by birth. While his Western astrological sign is Leo, Obama’s designation as an Ox is most akin to a Capricorn in Western astrology. Like Capricorns, Oxen are stubborn, dependable, methodical and systematic. Oxen like Obama are patient, tireless and work through hardship without complaint. They are intelligent, speak little, but when they do speak up they are both articulate and eloquent.

That sounds about right as a description of Barack Obama – and it sounds a great deal like exactly what we need in a leader right now. Here’s a bit more about Ox people from Go To Horoscope.com:

The Ox person is not extravagant, and the thought of living off credit cards or being in debt makes him or her nervous. The possibility of taking a serious risk could cause the ox person many sleepless nights. These people are truthful and sincere, and the idea of wheeling and dealing in a competitive world is distasteful to them. It would be right to mention that people born in the ox years are rarely driven by the prospect of financial gain. These people are always welcome because of their honesty and patience. They have many friends who appreciate the fact that ox people are rather introverted, although every now and then they can be encouraged to try something new. It is important to remember that the ox people are sociable and relaxed when they feel secure, but occasionally a dark cloud looms over such a person and he/she takes on the worries of the world and tries to find solutions.

How very apt is that? Obama has certainly taken on the worries of the world and made them his own. Let’s hope that the rest of his Ox horoscope is also true because God knows that we need someone level-headed, steady and stubborn as hell to push through the things that we need done to fix the fuck-ups of the last 40 years.
