What is the meaning of 2021 Year of the Ox?

The Ox is all about diligence, strength, and determination. This year is going to be about strategically building yourself up. Look at the big picture and work toward your long-term goals.

Whereas the Rat of 2020 was zipping all over the place, up and down, playing on our emotions, the Ox is a different beast. It is here to teach you patience, and how to achieve a goal through consistent hard work. Rather than being sporadic, the Ox is a thinker and a planner. This intelligent animal wants you to achieve your goals in a smart way.

The Ox is known to be very family-oriented. Oxen cherish their relationships with family members, home life, and education. They work hard to provide for the ones they care about and have innate ambitions. If you put in the work this year, you can expect to see your relationships and your home flourish.

The Ox's weakest link is communication. They can be stubborn and prefer to stick to their own ways.  Be careful not to get stuck in your ideals because collaboration is needed for a strong foundation this year. metal ox surrounded by onyx and sardonyx crystals

2021 Horoscope for All Zodiacs

Career & Fortune: You are about to see your career advance in 2021. The Ox is all about work and diligence, so if you adopt its traits, rewards will follow.

The Metal Ox is known to be a sign of prosperity and wellness. The Metal element corresponds with new work opportunities. Don't let hurdles paralyze you into inaction. The Ox is about long term goals and consistency- no quick fix. Keep pulling the cart and you'll end up with a pile of treasures.

Love: The Ox is completely family-oriented. It's a lucky year for love and commitment. You'll observe a boom in durable marriages.

Singles are ready to find their mate. Be careful in communication because the Ox likes to be stubborn and set in its ways. Don't let the relationship become too dull; some spontaneity and romance are necessary. This isn't the way of the Ox, but it's the way to keep happy and to balance all of that hard work.

Health: You must be very careful regarding health in 2021. The Ox is strong, but you are coming off a rocky year and need to recover.

Some Zodiac signs will flourish while others will have serious medical issues. Be careful not to take the Ox's work habits too far; avoid overworking and tiring yourself out.

2021 Horoscope by Animal Zodiac

#1 Rat (1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

  • Love: If you are in a relationship, you'll find the beginning of the year to be serene. Your partner is cooperative and supportive of your happiness. If you're single, you'll see your mind turning strongly in favor of a relationship. Although you may have some run-ins throughout the year, you are destined to meet a very interesting person at the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022.

  • Money: It's a generally prosperous year. You may go against your Zodiac sign's traits and take some major financial risks at the beginning of 2021. Be sure to avoid spontaneous investments later in the year. In your work and business life, try to keep a little bit of a humble profile this year. Grand displays of power may backfire. Stick to your talents and grow consistently for the best results in work and money.

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: 2021 is great for you in terms of health. Keep up your active lifestyle. Don't ignore your body signs if something triggers you- get it solved right away. Rats may become tense and aggressive as the year goes by. You'll need physical outlets like exercise to release the agitation.

#2 Ox (1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009)

  • Love: Family is important to Ox, and you see a budding relationship between you and your partner. There may be a marriage or a child in the picture. Single Oxes are bound to be lucky in love too.

  • Money: It's an auspicious year for Ox. Your natural inclination to work hard on long-term goals pays off. Be sure to curb your stubborn ways. You'll find yourself in the limelight often this year, invited to social and business events. Break from tradition and routine once in a while so that you get along with others. A long-term professional plan and a willingness to adapt goes a far way in boosting your career.

  • Love: Love is knocking on your door this year. Just be careful who you let in. From May onward, you're in a better emotional position to make big choices regarding relationships. Last year was hard for you. You need time for self-recovery. Steady Tigers may see a child or adoption in the picture.

  • Money: New work projects are on the horizon. Unfortunately, you may have a creative block as to how to achieve your goals. This leaves you wanting a major shift mid-year, such as a job change.

  • Money: You love lounging in the background, but this year you'll take a more ambitious role in work. When you dare, you'll see rewards right at the start of 2021. A task rabbit personality means you can get things done, but sometimes you get too caught up in the details. If you start something, make sure you can finish it. 

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: Stress can get the best of your health, especially early in the year. It will be hard to focus on work and other tasks. Relaxation and time at home can combat these. Turn to your artistic expressions and creative talents as an outlet.

#5 Dragon (1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012)

  • Love: A bustling career this year means you might meet someone interesting through a work event. Compromise is the key between you and an existing partner in 2021.  

  • Money: It's a promising time for your professional life. You struggled over the past 12 months and now there's a shift in energy. You'll be deep in commerce and business throughout 2021. You'll see gains in your financial status between March and May. Be careful of excess spending. Otherwise, thumbs up for Dragon.

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: Physically, the year starts off strong for you and the Ox energy keeps you going. Because you are steeped in work for 2021, it's important to take mental breaks.

  • Money: Lucky Snake sees an influx of money between March and June of 2021. This year you benefit from career choices that are minimal in risk. You'll find work decisions come easily. It's about being steady and consistent, don't rock the boat. Hard work is in the cards for August through November- do it diligently and avoid stress. At the end of the year, you may find yourself reliant on someone else for a big financial decision.

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: Your general health is fine. You could easily succumb to depression or insomnia, and this can be combatted with activity and exercise. 

#7 Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014)

  • Love: 2021 is not a great year for love and romance. Pay more attention to your partner, as you're tending to put the relationship last on the priority list.

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: Aside from minor issues, your health is great in the first half of the year. You are more accident-prone toward the end of 2021. Feng Shui and crystals are your friends to prevent this.

#8 Goat (1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015)

  • Love: You're lucky in love when you have a compatible partner. You're dreamy and affectionate, and you need a partner who returns this. 

  • Money & Finance: Your year starts off disorganized and choppy in business. Turn to monetize your artistic and creative side. The end of the year doesn't fare better because you are prone to losing your focus, and in turn money. Be careful. For Goats who are business owners, keep doing what you're doing. Year of the Ox is not a time to shake things up. Goats will find themselves wanting to spend money on fashion.

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: You're generally very healthy. Get your regular check-up in. Beware of stress at the beginning of the year and an accident at the end.

  • Money: Your energy and desire to showcase your talents work well in the year of the Ox. The sun is protecting you, and you glow with profitable abundance. Unemployed Monkeys have a good shot at finding a job in early 2021 or opening a small business. Larger investments are better left for the end of the year. 

  • Crystals for Good Fortune: Onyx Ox Collection

  • Health: This year Monkeys are attracted to peaceful activities like meditation and yoga. No health issues are in your cards. The end of the year could bring a little problem that will be solved by visiting the doctor, especially if you are elder. Engage in sports and a good diet every week.

Sheila Satin - February 5, 2021

Hi Tim, thanks for emailing. We won’t be able to identify your mineral for you, but here is a helpful article to get you in the right direction:

Timothy - February 5, 2021

Hi about a year ago I was down by the creek outside our home in Weston Missouri and found this rock I brought it home and washed it up. I’ve live here 62 years and never seen anything like this thing. Its got bright yellow and clear some orange kind of a pinkish colors. the clear looks likes diamonds almost
they prism so much. Its hard I cant scratch it with a sharp nail. Its really a beautiful piece. I searched the area around where I found it nothing else there. As a kid I spent a lot of time in most the creeks in the area around here and never found a piece of yellow or clear anywhere. On one side the clear looks like its melted and smooth. I’ve looked online and some pallasites look similar but what do I know. Other than its one cool looking specimen of some kind. I can blow a picture up and see some small dots of green and blue. If you can help me in any way I sure could use your help. Thanks you for taking time to read this.
