The last time the earth Ox was seen as the ruling influence was January 29, 1949 - February 15, 1950. The world suffered a recession in late 1948 and early 1949 (looks like history is repeating itself). The world economy recovered during the year of the ox due to rational decisions and careful planning. By 1951, the recession was over. Many will be searching for a quick solution to the current economic crisis, but the ox favors a well planned, consistent path that will take more time but lay a foundation for long lasting results. The strong earth influence of this year favors a strengthening of the housing market, but risk takers will not find this year favorable. Those who look for long term benefits, have a well thought out plan and are willing to work to see results will find great success.
Lishaznia's Note: So let's take heed of the cow's wisdom - plan well, be rational, be smart and lastly be patient. Barack Obama is well-known individual born in the year of the Cow. Let's see if he displays all the characteristics associated with those born in the year of the Cow.
