This may be the most generous and honorable sign of the Chinese Zodiac. Nice to a fault and possessed of impeccable manners and taste, it is almost impossible not to get along with. Due to its love of reveling in the good life; this sign could happily spend hours on end making love, napping, or playing in a bathtub of whipped cream.
It is so much of an Epicurean that others are inclined to perceive it as a snob, but, this is only its truly luxurious nature, one that delights in finery and riches. Honest, naive, reliable, brave, chivalrous, sincere, and affectionate, who treats its loved ones with great kindness, and who has a thirst for knowledge; it is also impulsive, short tempered, greedy, and often lonely. Our lovable ham tends to be rather exclusive, choosing to spend its time with those who appreciate it most and ignoring the rest of the world.
Occupying the last position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Pig is agentle-hearted and long-suffering sign. Those souls born into Pig years learn the lesson of resignation. They have the ability to accept others, and understand that human nature is controlled by fate and that a higher power is at work. The Pig is a wise but passive observer rather than an active participant throughout life. Pigs are highly intelligent, and possess an unique sense of dry humor. However, rarely will they apply their intelligence to gain dominance.
Gentle yet strong of will, those who are born under the sign of the Pig are tolerant, sincere, and honest. Known to be studious and well informed, the Pig chooses few friends, remaining loyal for life. Through the good times, and especially the bad times, you can always count on a Pig to be there. Pigs relish long-standing relationships and are affectionate and open-hearted. Peaceful Pigs recoil from confrontations and have difficulty saying no. The rapidly acquiescing Pig forgives easily and takes blame unduly.
The most favorable time of day for those born into Pig years is between the hours of 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., when the yin force intensifies in strength and families settle in for a sound night of slumber. As the cycle of the day draws to a close, the Pig contemplates the days happenings and blissfully dozes off, listening to the quiet voice of their heart.
The Pig hates hypocrisy, phoniness, lying, and all forms of unkindness. These souls love the comforts of life, especially adequate affection. If these souls have an Achilles’ heel, it would have to be a weakness for the sensual pleasures of life. Here we find a jewel of an individual, stable, mature, and long-suffering to a fault. Possessing intelligence, empathy, and meticulous attention to detail, in every way the Pig is a keeper.
The Pig-year souls have a strong need to set difficult goals and see them through. The perfect home for a Pig person is a country house with a view of the mountains on one side, and the ocean on the other, blissfully shared with their beloved. Pig souls wish to surround themselves with beauty, liberty, fresh air, and plenty of greenery. Emo-tional therapy can be found in a walk along the beach or sitting amidst the forest reading the poetry of John Muir.
Unenlightened Pigs can be passive, self-indulgent, and slothful. The Pig’s apparent passivity and ability to take people as they find them is many times used as an excuse to avoid making decisions. The Pig’s search for earthly pleasures can also blindside them and lead them down a destructive path to licentiousness and debauchery. Dysfunctional Pigs may deliberately choose difficult or neurotic partners. Expressed in its darkest form, the Pig’s energy becomes extreme defenselessness, a lack of competitive spirit, pragmatism, and over reliance on physical or material comforts. The choice lies entirely with the individual. Taken to extreme, panic disorders and obsessive-compulsive tendencies may develop.
Those born into a Pig year can respond to disappointment by withdrawing and isolating themselves. Once equilibrium has been restored, however, they return to devote themselves once again to the issue at hand. Pig-year souls are genuinely nice, and the sweetness of their personality is filled with a clever wit. Those who know them are always a bit shocked, yet amused, by their slightly off-color humor. Pigs prove tolerant companions. They are patient, genuine, and upstanding, but, more often than not, they fail to receive reciprocal treatment from others. Pigs can suffer from gullibility, as they project their own integrity onto others and naturally assume others will respond in a similar fashion. Unfortunately, many people are opportunistic and take advantage of the Pigs trusting heart.
The Chinese believe that if the Pigs birth date is well before the traditional Chinese New Years feast, the Pig will escape many of the disappointments in life. The closer the birth date is to the lunar NewYear, the more likely it is that the Pig will be duped or betrayed.
The early childhood years are usually a time of calmness and security. Many Pigs long to return to such a time. The Pig may not be recognized for their talents and kindness until midlife approaches, but most are compensated generously at this time. During midlife, relationship dilemmas could be a problem, and emotionally injurious, self-imposed isolation or solitary suffering could result. Confiding in friends and family may permit the Pig to commiserate, but they prefer to handle conflicts internally. Once past the struggles of midlife, a Pig’s retirement years are generally emotionally satisfying, peaceful, and content.
The parent lucky enough to have this sweet little bundle is indeed fortunate. Absolutely cuddly and loving, this child is almost too good to be true. Deeply conscience of right and wrong, the Pig child will prefer to passively watch the world from a distance, resigned to the way things are. Little Pigs like to sleep a lot, and enjoy good food. Chivalrous even as small children, the sick parent or relative of a Pig child will have many handmade get-well cards, tucked covers, and much touching concern. Here are the Boy and Girl Scouts of the Eastern Zodiac. Pure of heart, Pig children can tend to be gullible, and parents need to make sure that these children don’t give more than they take with friends. Meticulous with possessions and life in general, children born into Pig years tend to be hypersensitive during childhood, but they will be compensated by being financially fortunate later in life.
The Pig is the paragon of parental devotion. Consumed with protective instincts, they find great happiness in devoting themselves to the welfare of their children. Pig parents are more comfortable acting as a friend to their little ones. They have difficulty being strict disciplinarians. They handle children wisely and lovingly. Despite being well-mannered and peace-loving, Pigs can become ferocious boars and frenzied sows when it comes to defending their children.
The most favorable time of year for Pigs is between mid-December and mid-January, at the end of the lunar-solar year, when everyone is busily preparing for the feasts and celebrations of the New Year holiday.
According to Chinese legend, the peace-loving Pig is the luckiest sign in business. They often make their mark in the arts, or as entertainers, but also make splendid researchers, scientists, and computer programmers. Pigs may also prosper as filmmakers, writers, poets, painters, and entrepreneurs. Educators, attorneys, and physicians are also often found amongst Pig natives. Though never willing to employ under-handed methods, these souls are usually successful at earning money. Through thick and thin, a Pig will hang on in business and ride out tough times. They are often rewarded for this financially.
