THE YEAR OF THE OX (BUFFALO IN VIETNAM)

PEOPLE BORN IN THE YEAR OF THE BUFFALO

(collected from http://en.wikipedia.orgwikiOx_(zodiac))

The BUFFALO is the sign of prosperity through fortitude and hard work. This powerful sign is a born leader, being quite dependable and possessing an innate ability to achieve great things. As one might guess, such people are dependable, calm, and modest. Like their animal namesake, the BUFFALO is unswervingly patient, tireless in their work, and capable of enduring any amount of hardship without complaint.


BUFFALO people need peace and quiet to work through their ideas, and when they have set their mind on something it is hard for them to be convinced otherwise. A BUFFALO person has a very logical mind and is extremely systematic in whatever they do, even without imagination. These people speak little but are extremely intelligent. When necessary, they are articulate and eloquent.


People born under the influence of the BUFFALO are kind, caring souls, logical, positive, filled with common sense and with their feet firmly planted on the ground. Security is their main preoccupation in life, and they are prepared to toil long and hard in order to provide a warm, comfortable and stable nest for themselves and their families. Strong-minded, stubborn, individualistic, the majority are highly intelligent individuals who don't take kindly to being told what to do.


The BUFFALO works hard, patiently, and methodically, with original intelligence and reflective thought. These people enjoy helping others. Behind this tenacious, laboring, and self-sacrificing exterior lies an active mind.


The BUFFALO is not extravagant, and the thought of living off credit cards or being in debt makes them nervous. The possibility of taking a serious risk could cause the BUFFALO sleepless nights.



BUFFALO people are truthful and sincere, and the idea of wheeling and dealing in a competitive world is distasteful to them. They are rarely driven by the prospect of financial gain. These people are always welcome because of their honesty and patience. They have many friends, who appreciate the fact that the BUFFALO people are wary of new trends, although every now and then they can be encouraged to try something new.


It is important to remember that the BUFFALO people are sociable and relaxed when they feel secure, but occasionally a dark cloud looms over such people and they engage all the trials of the whole world and seek solutions for them. Also the BUFFALO people are all caring and loving but at times when you mess with them they will tear out in anger.
