Zen View Chinese New year of the White Metal Ox

ZenView: Chinese New year of the White Metal Ox

By Mary Layton

Given that the previous Metal Rat Year hasn’t been easy at all I have been extra curious about finding out the predictions on the web for this Year of the Ox. At any rate, we are done with the Year of the Rat! This New Year of the Ox sounds more promising except that we will all have to work hard, as hard as an ox if we want to succeed.  The New Year of the Metal Ox will start February 12th and will last until January 31st of 2022.

The White Metal Ox is associated with Yin energy, which embodies development and evolution.   The Ox is a highly esteemed animal in Chinese Culture because of the importance it plays in agriculture. The Ox is hardworking and methodical, plowing the earth one row at a time, over and over, until the work is done, his mind uncluttered.  If we can be like the Ox and stick to routine and discipline we may be able to bring stability into our lives again. “The trials and tribulations the Ox Year brings will be mainly on the homefront”, one of my books tells me. “It is a good time to settle domestic affairs and put your house in order.” If we run into problems it is because we need to improve our communication skills. We may need to work harder on ourselves in order to be appreciated and loved by others.  In the year of the Ox, we need to have a lot of patience and a lot of discipline! “Everything will be sorted out and we will be rewarded for our efforts – so long as we remember to do things the conventional way. No time for tricky shortcuts.” Happy New Year of the Ox!  Wishing you all Peace, Health and Happiness!

Note:  What does “Metal” mean ?

The metal element emphasizes the need for precision and clear thinking.  Further, “As with 2020, this phase of the Chinese Calendar is ruled by the color white.  Because white contains all the colors of the spectrum, it represents the potential to draw support from all different sources.  Specialized knowledge will be prized, making it a prosperous time for doctors, scientists, lawyers and academics”.  Listen to the experts in 2021
