The Ox will congratulate him/herself on feeling perfectly in his/her element. The New Year will bring him/her a pleasurable sensation of physical and mental well-being. Sufficiently wise not to make a drama out of every grain of sand, he/she will close his/her eyes on the faults of his/her close ones and will thus preserve his/her interior peace.
The astral environment of this year will incite the Ox to devote himself/herself more to reading. He/she will therefore gain more wisdom, for "the reading of all good books is like a conversation with the best people of past centuries" (Descartes). Meditation will also please him/her. One could say that Lao-Tzu and Montaigne would not have been more contented than him/her in this year.
