The Year Of The Ox Begins Today, January 26, 2009
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Ox ( 牛 ) is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Ox is denoted by the earthly branch character 丑. In the Vietnamese zodiac, the water buffalo (zodiac) occupies the position of the ox.

More global financial woes, and even more strife, are on the cards for the Chinese lunar Year of the Ox, according to Hong Kong's respected soothsayers who say it might not end in tears after all.
Hong Kong, an Asian financial hub known for its ultra-capitalist ways, reveres its feng shui masters and fortune tellers -- men and women who draw on ancient Chinese traditions to predict the future, offer investment advice and help mere mortals make sense of their destiny.
The Year of the Ox, which starts on Monday, could prove another tough one for everybody, including U.S. President Barack Obama.
"The Year of the Ox will be a number nine fire year," said Raymond Lai, a seer in the city. "And the color is purple, so the fire energy will be very intense ... this could bring fire disasters or war, racial conflicts and things like that."
Practitioners of feng shui maintain the universe is made up of five elements -- earth, water, fire, wood and metal -- that define the collective mood in our environment.
Alion Yeo, who predicted major financial turbulence last year as well as a major disaster in the East, sees further seismic shifts in global financial markets come May and June this year.
"There will be another major crisis, the bubble will burst again in the U.S. and it will be worse than last year," said Yeo, who counts top bankers and celebrities among his clients. Read more.
Note: OX corresponds to the number (66)
This afternoon I drove along Route 66 after delivering a package to US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. I was with a friend of mine who assisted me serving another package at the Federal Bureau of Investigation on behalf of Orly Taitz, Esq.
Today is the end of the 11148th cycle of OX (66) days since the birth of our Lord God Jesus Christ on August 11th in 6 BC. The Universal Numerical Date (UND) today is 735768 = 929 prime X 792 (66 X 12). Note that 12 = 6 + 6, too.
929 corresponds to "Free From Fear" as follows:
Free (6955) From (6964) Fear (6519) = 20438 = 929 prime X 22
Our second son, Thomas, was born on July 4, 1997 which was in "The Year of the Ox". Thomas's numerical age (NA) today was 4224 days which factors into OX (66) X 64 = 4224 days.
