She is capable of tackling the toughest projects. Furthermore, she is thorough and methodical, never losing sight of the myriad details involved.Not every Ox is a workaholic, but it is true she is generally thought of as hard working and reliable. The Water OX is often well liked and popular because she is more sensitive and flexible than others of this sign and yet retains its basic strength and sense of responsibility. Although the typical Ox is often a loner, she can be quite social.
