The Chinese New Year of the Pig begins on February 5, 2019. Each animal in the Chinese zodiac is divided into elements with slightly different characteristics: this new yin year is an earth pig. A joyous year of energy and fortune, which brings stability, flexibility, modesty and intuition.
If you are a pig
Traditionally, the characteristics of the year reflect those of your zodiac animal. Pigs are curious, mischievous, tolerant, generous, and intelligent. They also have patience and understanding. Pigs in their own year are often unlucky and require a lot of work and discipline to avoid problems.
However, if you are a pig, keep calm, protect your wealth, and 2019 can be positive. Correct weaknesses and attract good luck by attending happy events. Also avoid hospitals, cemeteries, gluttony and loneliness.
Your perfect companion is a tiger, a rabbit or a goat; you are less harmonious with a pig, a snake or a monkey. The best jobs are in charity, teaching, acting, health care, or beauty.
