About the Year of the Ox
February 12 marks the beginning of the Year of the Ox. The ox is the second animal of the Chinese zodiac. It symbolises hard work, positivity and honesty. Based on the annual rotation of the five elements — wood, fire, earth, metal and water, this is the Year of the Metal Ox which represents stability and growth! This is good news especially after a challenging year.
Overall auspicious feng shui colours for Year of the Ox
According to the famous feng shui master, David Koh, there are some generally auspicious colours that everyone can wear this 2021. These colours will work in the favour of any zodiac signs. For the Ox year, stick to darker shades such as mustard yellow, maroon and mulberry purple. Darker hues are more in line with the earth element, which helps to strengthen metal — the element of the year.
- Dark yellow: The shade of the earth element
- Dark red: Denotes fire, which is produced by earth and hence, is a good colour for the year
- Dark purple: One of the hues of the metal element
