'The Ox is the second sign from the 12 animals cycle of the Chinese Astrology. This Metal Ox Year is predicted to be a favorable year for economic recovery or consolidation, a year of long-term investments (relationships, money, reserves – physical and spiritual), and restoration of harmony and peace if we strive for it – this will require discipline and clear focus! Dreams, ideals and personal connections are very important and should be nourished this year. It is a year to seek and find balance – in all things.' Dr Alex Feng
