Ox – Spiritual Path
The Ox is a spiritually disciplined and God-fearing sign that is ruled by the element of Water in Chinese astrology. Although they are very practical people, Oxen rarely need convincing of the existence of a higher power.
This somewhat superstitious sign usually believes that a soul is born in need of protection from negative influences. Whether they belong to a religious organization or not, daily prayer is usually a part of their spiritual path.
Oxen like to walk the straight and narrow so they are attracted to older, organized religions including Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
As they are so practical, they may also gravitate to the rational religions such as Deism, which maintains the existence of God on rational grounds, and Zoroastrianism, which teaches that there is a rational consequence for every act.
