Chinese New Year falls on February 5th 2019. Each year is assigned one of 12 Zodiac signs with an associated animal. 2019 will be the Year of the Pig. The Chinese believe that each sign has associated characteristics, with people born under the pig sign believed to be gentle souls. Calm and nurturing, Pigs are popular in social situations and their careers, but also sensitive, naive and may be unlucky in love.
In addition to designating an animal for each year, the Chinese zodiac also cycles through the five elements of nature: Earth, Wind, Water, Fire, and Metal.
Expecting a new addition in 2019? Babies born this year will be Earth Pigs. According to this Chinese astrology guide,
“Earth pigs have a pretty good interpersonal network since they are very sociable. Also, earth pigs have the strong sense of time and they will never be late. To everything handed over to them, they are very responsible and can handle them properly. However, they are over vigorous, so they often suffer from accidental injuries. . . In terms of career, they’d better learn the experience of predecessors, which is not difficult for earth pigs with good fellowship. If they can use the experience of predecessors wisely, they will be more successful in career.
When it comes to love, earth pigs are absolutely not the masters since they are relatively conservative and not romantic enough. Therefore, their love develops slowly even if they meet the loved one due to the lack of appropriate expression. However, their loyalty increases the sweetness of love.”
Previous Pig years include 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1947 and 1935. Famous “Earth Pig” celebrities include Wynona Ryder, Hillary Clinton, Elton John, Stephen King, and the Dalai Lama.
