In 2021, the Ox is in its natal year (the year of its own Zodiac sign), with a common saying being "one happiness blocks three disasters, no happiness incites arguments”. In the natal year, if there is a traditionally happy event, such as marriage, adding a family member, buying a house or starting a business, one’s fortune will be more desirable.
Luck score: 2.5/5
It is easy to have negative emotions during the natal year, which will affect one’s personal analytical skills, so it is not advisable to act rashly with regards to investments. Moreover, in the Year of the Ox, wealth luck goes up and down, and investments should be gradual, cautious and conservative. Conversely, buying physical objects and home ownership can be better options for protecting value.
Luck score: 2/5
The presence of the auspicious star 'Hua Gai' (华盖) is particularly beneficial for creative work, and the Year of the Ox can be a great advantage. However, due to narcissistic tendencies, it may not be easy to communicate with others, and this could affect an Ox’s popularity and career. It is best to avoid standing out too much and instead try to improve relationships with people.
Luck score: 4/5
In the natal year, the relationships are said to have reached a crossroads, and there is possibility of backtracking if you do not advance. Those who already have a partner are advised to take the initiative to implement the wedding date or to have kids to help reduce the impact. Singles are likely to encounter more short-term relationships, which are difficult to develop into something more, and it is therefore not advisable to move too quickly in these.
Luck score: 3/5
The Year of the Ox is affected by inauspicious stars such as 'Jian Feng' (剑锋) and 'Fu Shi' (伏尸). In combination with Fan Tai Sui (犯太岁, literally meaning offending the Tai Sui God of the year, also known as the Grand Duke), an Ox’s health luck is particularly weak.
It is advisable to have a physical examination at the end of the year. At the beginning of the Ox year, you should donate blood or have a dental check-up, offsetting a potentially more serious “loss of blood”. You can also buy more health products or insurance to stabilise your health luck.
