My Birthday on Winter Solstice

I've been told I was born on a very powerful day - Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year, and the longest night.

Famous people born on December 21st
Frank Zappa, Jane Fonda, Joseph Stalin, and Samuel L. Jackson,
According to the Chinese zodiac
Still waters run deep, as anyone who has observed an Ox will tell you.

Character
People born in the Year of the Ox are the supremely self-assured, and as a result are noted for inspiring confidence in others. They are extremely determined and work tirelessly to get what they want. Step by step and piece by piece, they move steadily toward their goals. They are fair-minded and good listeners, but they can also be extremely stubborn. In troubled times they will have great presence of mind and will never be intimidated.

Oxes may appear docile, but watch out! When Oxes lose their temper, they really lose it! There will be no reasoning with them, so get out of their way until they cool off. Always appeal to the head rather than to the heart of the Oxes. They quickly understand the pros and cons to the situation.

Work
Because of their trustworthy character, Oxes will often hold positions of authority and responsibility. Oxes can be forceful leaders and eloquent speakers when the occasion arises. They always get ahead in the world. When they are unhappy or upset, they will bury themselves in their work until they feel better. They must be careful not to become slaves to their jobs or profession.

Love
Oxen can also be vulnerable in romance. They are so straightforward that they don't relate to the love games others play. Since it takes a long time to develop intimate relationships, Oxes like long courtships. Once they have made up their minds, they are loyal and giving-almost to a fault.

Oxen are most compatible with a snake and a rooster. (U. is a snake and Astrid is a rooster. How's that for hitting the jackpot!?)

Famous people born in the Year of the Ox
Johann Sebastian Bach, Napoleon Bonaparte, Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney, Clark Gable, and Vincent Van Gogh
