Domestically oriented, people born in the Year of the Pig adore their homes and families





With their sunny natures and cheerful dispositions, people born in the Year of the Pig are jovial characters who are obliging and outgoing. They are relaxed and unpretentious individuals, inherently kind, caring, and generous to a fault. There is always a meal for the hungry at their table, a word of encouragement when others are low, and a helping hand for those in need. Honest as the day is long, they expect honesty in return, and are therefore perhaps naively trusting. If, at times, the unscrupulous do take advantage of these people’s good nature, the Pig will not bear a grudge for long. However, if put upon for too long, even these easy-going souls will finally draw the line, and a Pig in a rage is not a pleasant sight.

As friends and lovers – with their kindly nature and undemanding ways, Pigs have very few enemies, and in fact continue to make friends throughout their lifetimes. A close social circle is important, and since many of them are gifted with culinary skills, they adore throwing dinner parties and are excellent hosts. Warm and loving, people born in the Year of the Pig are made for married life and derive great pleasure from the physical contact of intimate relationships.

The Year Of The Pig


Auspicious for the leisure industry, for gambling, and for trade in luxury goods,
this is a year for conspicuous cosumption. As the Sign of the family, the year of the Pig favours all domestic matters. However, since this is the last in the cycle, principally, it is a year when priority should be given to tying up loose ends and putting one’s affairs in
order, ready to start afresh with the new cycle beginning in the following year.
