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.
