The Chinese New Year is on 5th February and for 2019 we’re entering the year of the Pig! Find out more about your Chinese Zodiac and how this year will play out according to the Chinese zodiac system.
Year of the Pig: Chinese Zodiac
2019 is the year of the “earth pig" the next one will be a “metal pig" in 2031. The pig is the last animal in the Chinese Zodiac so represents a time where we need to look back over the last 12 years and see how far we’ve come – celebrate our successes and see where we need to make changes to improve. People born in the year of the pig are said to be friendly, generous and fun-loving. They appreciate comfort and tend to be happy go lucky in life, with abundance flowing to them easily. This will reflect on 2019, where there’ll be an emphasis on working hard at our goals, but also balancing that with having a good time.
We’ll need to watch out for people who might take advantage of our good-natured generosity and stay focused on our goals instead of getting distracted with indulgence or too much of a good thing. How will the Year of the Pig affect your Chinese Zodiac sign?*Remember that the Chinese year runs from February to February so if you’re born in January, you’ll be the previous sign.
