Your Chinese astrology sign is Ox, if you were born in:
1925; 1937; 1949; 1961; 1973; 1985; 1997; 2009
This applies if you were born in these years before 04 February of the year. That is the official date for calculating the change of the Lunar Year. This year is one of those special years that Lunar New Year is earlier than the change of Lunar Year (Li Chun), so we may send away the Rat (2008) and welcome the Ox (2009) during the countdown, but the actual change is still on 04 Feb which would be the 10th day into the Lunar New Year.
It is commonly believed that your compatible astrology signs are Snake, and Rooster; and your incompatible signs would be Dog, Dragon, and Goat (Goat being the most opposing).

The Ox of Chinese Astrology is no bull in a china shop. Steadfast and solid, this powerful Sign is a born leader, being quite dependable and possessing an innate ability to achieve great things. Oxen tend to be plodding and methodical; they approach projects in the step-by-step manner that serves them best, and they never lose sight of their goal. They are tireless workers who are detail-oriented and believe in doing things right the first time.
The world may perceive Oxen as being far too serious or incapable of loosening up. This sturdy sort is less than social by nature and tends to become introverted in a crowd. To make things worse, they can’t be bothered with what other people think and prefer to do what makes them feel best. Behind that calm facade, though, lives an Ox who can feel hurt, lonely and unable to connect with others. Friends and family are a great source of comfort to this beast, even if they don’t always understand what makes the Ox tick. As a lover, friend, family member or housemate, the Ox makes a wonderfully strong, tender and affectionate companion who is protective and always reliable.
Out in the world, though, Oxen tend to be stubborn, dogmatic, my-way-or-the-highway kind of people who have no concept of when to back down. Oxen don’t care to be pushed, especially since they think they’re the good guys of the Chinese Zodiac. There is some truth to that theory, since the Ox is smart, trustworthy, caring and honorable. If you need honest, steady and unbiased advice, call on the Ox.
A good lesson for mighty Oxen is to strive to overcome a judgmental nature that keeps them from getting close to others. If they can learn to value their own good qualities, they’ll have more room in their hearts to invite others in.
