    I was born it the year of the Rat. I wonder what is your "year" and do you feel an affinity for it?

    My mom always said that is why you are so 'fierce'. So does that mean everyone in that year is 'fierce'? I think not. Sorry mum. (I am Chinese)

    From that article:
    Obama, born in the Year of the Ox, is taking office in a particularly bad year for his Chinese astrological sign. The ox sign is in direct conflict this year with a traditional Chinese divinity called the "God of Year," considered a bad omen. Obama also is the 44th president, a number the Chinese deem extremely unlucky, because "four" is pronounced the same as "death" in Chinese.
    It is true about the number 4. It is double badluck they say...

    Are you sure 09 is just the year of the Ox?

    Noun: ox (oxen)
    1. An adult castrated bull of the genus Bos; especially Bos taurus
    2. Any of various wild bovines especially of the genera Bos or closely related Bibos
    I see many B's on that ox, so maybe it's the year of the Bho's (aka: toolbars), too!

    I checked my sign, rubbed my lucky rabbit's foot, prayed to 14 gods (just to make sure I am golden with the right one), reread the fortune cookie messages I have saved.... and then I sat down and got to work.

    And you know what, it doesn't matter where the confidence comes from as long as I do the last step and get to work.

    Being the year of the ox, prepare to get your ox gored.

    I was born in the year of the rooster... which of course most the time people just tease because it's the year of the c*ck :/

    I don't feel any affinity towards it, I don't know anyone who does, even one of my good friends whose Chinese and actually celebrates Chinese New Year.

    Rooster: People born in the Year of the Rooster are deep thinkers, capable, and talented. They like to be busy and are devoted beyond their capabilities and are deeply disappointed if they fail. People born in the Rooster Year are often a bit eccentric, and often have rather difficult relationship with others. They always think they are right and usually are! They frequently are loners and though they give the outward impression of being adventurous, they are timid. Rooster peopleˇ¦s emotions like their fortunes, swing very high to very low. They can be selfish and too outspoken, but are always interesting and can be extremely brave. They are most compatible with Ox, Snake, and Dragon

They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful. They are most compatible with people born in the years of the Dragon, Monkey, and Ox.

    Dragon: People born in the Year of the Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn. They are also honest, sensitive, brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. They neither borrow money nor make flowery speeches, but they tend to be soft-hearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them. They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters

    I am a Horse
    The Fire Horse is animated and sociable. He has a wild side that leads him to a life on the edge. Fire Horses are generally either incredibly lucky or ridiculously unlucky. They love the excitement of action and the change it brings. The Fire element makes them passionate about their feelings and they always take a stand in a situation. Fire Horses are never on the fence about anything and have definitive opinions about the world. Their tempers can be overbearing
    There have been many times in my life when I felt either "incredibly lucky or ridiculously unlucky"
    I'm definitely a passionate individual
    [I often have strong opinions too ]
