Welcoming in the Year of the Pig!



It is said that the Year of the Pig - the last animal sign of the 12 year Chinese zodiac cycle - is often considered an opportune year; signifying wealth and fortune. Recent years of the Pig are: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019. Notable celebrities also born in the Year of the Pig include: Henry Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Magic Johnson and Hilary Clinton.

Those born in the Year of the Pig are said to have a beautiful personality. Pigs are diligent, compassionate, generous and are blessed with good fortune in life. They are also energetic and enthusiastic people and love entertaining others and themselves. They may be materialistic but having solid possessions are a way to give them security. On the other hand, Pigs are very naive and pure of heart, making them incapable of sensing trickery and are easy to fool. 

Romantically speaking, a Pig is most compatible with a Tiger, Rabbit, and Goat. These combinations have a high possibility of yielding a sweet and everlasting marriage. The Tiger is said to give the Pigs the security they derive from material objects. Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are attracted to the Pig's warmness and diligent nature. Pigs are the least compatible to those born in the year of the Snake and Monkey.
