The year of the OX, what can we expect this year, first let me tell you what the OX is about. The person who was born under the following years of the OX are; 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, and 2009 in these years born under are persons to be bright, patient and inspiring to others. You can be happy by yourself. Yet make an outstanding parent. Compatible with born under the sign of SNAKE and COCK, never compatible with born under the sign of the SHEEP because it will bring trouble. This year the EARTH element is present, meaning all business that has something to do with agriculture and mining are in full gear. Don't forget to stock up SALT, RICE, WATER, SUGAR in your kitchens so that food will never be scarce for the entire year and then good health will follow. It may also mean that higher rate for weddings will follow because people in love will be more creative and more romantic, people will spend wisely and save, credit cards will collapse all at once because of cash spending rather using credit cards, but the better way to deal with this is to further promotional strategy and continue 0% interests and tax cuts. GOVERNMENT BAILOUTS will not be the solution to overspending of giant corporations that after profitability, DISREGARD FOR CIVIC DUTIES and not the welfare of the consumers.
