Zodiac Animal Predictions: Year of the Metal Ox
Newcomers to the Chinese Zodiac tend to assume that anyone born in the Year of the Ox should have a fortunate year coming up. The reality is that each animal in an anniversary of their birth year is in the “Tai Sui,” which means that it’s going to be a roller coaster year of highs and lows.
Unfortunately, the Ox is no different, so take life one day at a time. For each of the Zodiac animals, we’ll discuss health, career, wealth and partnerships.If you’re not sure of your Chinese Zodiac animal, go to https://tfi.design/blog/whats-your-chinese-zodiac-sign/ to find out!
What’s the “Tai Sui” (pronounced “Tie Sway”)?
In Chinese Astrology, the Tai Sui can bring you good fortune some years, and bad luck in other years. Mention of the Tai Sui usually refers to the bad luck side of the coin, however. It follows the 12 year cycle of the planet Jupiter (and is sometimes known as the Grand Duke Jupiter.) If your animal sign is in direct opposition to the year’s Tai Sui, or is located 90 degrees from the Tai Sui’s location then it is said to bring ill fortune. In 2021, the Goat is in a direct clash, and the Dragon and Dog are in the 90 degree side clash. Those born under the sign of the Ox are also advised to pay homage to the Tai Sui to plead his support throughout the year. By contrast, the Rat, Snake and Rooster are in good positions, and get along well with the Ox.
Overall, you should have a better year than last, when you were in the Tai Sui. Just as January has proven to be a challenging month due to Covid-19 and political unrest in the U.S., recognize that the Year of the Ox may begin with some challenges.
Pay close attention to your health this year. Get some exercise outside on a regular basis, which can help with stress. Meditation can help nourish your mental health. Maintain a strict sleep regime, going to bed and getting up at the same time, and make sure you get enough sleep to maintain your health.

It’s a good year to get married, or if you married last year, it’s a good year to bring a baby into your life. Avoid a love triangle at all costs, especially if you’re a newlywed.
