This coming February 12, 2021 marks the beginning of the year of the Ox. In Chinese zodiac, the ox is known to be diligent, hardworking, and honest in nature. Those born in the year of the Ox are known to achieve their goals through consistent effort and discipline, just like former president Barack Obama and legendary actress Meryl Streep! Chinese astrologers claim that hard workers will be rewarded. Prosperity and abundance will manifest to those who persist.
