Barack Obama, The Metal Ox in Lunar Astrology

Barack Obama, the Metal Ox

According to Chinese lunar astrology, Barack Obama is an ox. The ox is also known as the water buffalo and in Korea the ox is known as the cow. More specifically, because of his date of birth, August 4, 1961, Obama is a metal ox.

The male ox is known as a gentleman and a man who is very sure of himself. They are often brilliant at what they chose to do in life and because of this they usually rise to positions of leadership quite easily.

Ox men, just like ox women, should never be underestimated. Often people make the mistake of underestimating them because of their cool, calm and quiet exterior - this is always a mistake. When an ox makes up his or her mind to do something, nothing at all can stop them.

Ox men read widely, they are well rounded and can engage in brilliant conversation that is full of substance. They respect people who have genuine knowledge of the topic at hand. However, in all cases, action speaks louder than words for the ox; you have to be able to back up your talk.

Ox people like Obama prefer people who are confident and sure of themselves, and who act and live accordingly. This applies to both men and women.

Ox in general are not considered romantic in the Hollywood sense of the word. Rather, the ox people are truly passionate and capable of great love and genuine loyalty. He won't give you diamonds and furs - again the Hollywood flash is not appealing when it comes to giving or receiving gifts, but he will give gifts of love that are practical, like a house, a car, investments, etc.

You won't attract this man with cheap seductive tricks. It is far better to respect his intellect and be a match for it.

When it comes to his wife and children, Barack Obama, like all members of the ox family, male and female, will be fiercely loyal and protective. This is not an area where you should tread, ever!

Obama, the metal ox, is a hardworking man and expects everyone around him to work just as hard. He will not tolerate slackers when there is serious work to be done. If you don't think the same way, then get out of his way.

According to Lillian Too, the Queen of feng-shui and a master, Barack Obama, the metal ox, is quite compatible with his wife, Michelle Robinson Obama, the water rabbit. She predicted an extroadinary year, 2008, for the couple with these lunar signs, including the chance to achieve the fulfillment of great dreams.

To read more about Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson Obama's compatibility and year for extraordinary success, see my Hub Page entitled "Barack and Michelle, the Ox and the Rabbit." In this relationship, it is by making Michelle happy that Barack will be happy. Makes sense to me.

Very interesting! Had not come across this hub. At first I thought you were name calling Obama a "metal ox", when I first read the subject of this hub, and wondered what it was about, LOL! I should have known, as I am a horse in Chinese astrology.

Enjoyed the picture of Brooklyn in your profile page, lived most of my life in NY, and have been in Dekalb Ave.

Thanks for writing VioletSun! I am an ox in in Chinese astrology - an earth ox, out of the gate - and it goes on and on. I also included in my hubpages, how to guess someone's age in Chinese astrology.

Thanks again!

Thanks William F. Torpey. Next Lunar year is the year of the ox (Obama's year - and mine). I have to write more.

The ox types are super special. So cool and what not.

By the way someone has copied the content of this hub onto their website. How interesting - but what can you do. There is a notice at the top of the page but perhaps only I can see it. This is my 3rd copied hub.

Can you do a hub about dragons? I am a dragon!

Sounds like a good idea. In fact I should probably do a hub about each sign. I'm an ox/waterbuffalo - or in Korea I am a cow. Such fun.

Thanks for the idea and I will work on it for the new year in Feb.

Because I was born in 1961 - I also am a weak metal ox. For 2012, the year of the Dragon, it is going to be a BAD year for the yin metal ox.

Funny, I didn't know that today was the start of the new year but last night I took my meat tenderizer and banged my cast iron lid a few times with all my might. It reminded me of the noise during the lion dances in Chinatown Honolulu.

Apparantly - I'm not exactly a joy to my nieghbors!

Hello ptosis - I wish we did more loud celebrating of the lunar new year here in New York City. We need more joy and clearing the air.

I am an earth ox looking forward to a great water dragon year but I have to get away from people that are so joyless - people that latch on to a happy person and drain them. We all have to bring joy to the table. It may be a job for some but we need to make it a requirement.

I bet your success lies in adding humor to all you do - I detect quite a bit of wit there.
