As we reign in the New Year, we also reign in a new Zodiac animal to represent the year. This year, 2019, will be the Year of The Pig. The Year of The Pig is quite important, as the last year in the Chinese Zodiac cycle. In this blog, we’ll go through everything you need to know about the Year of The Pig, from the characteristics of the Pig to the Pig’s forecast for the year.
If you were born in 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, congratulations! You, along with those born in 2019, will be represented by the Pig in the Chinese Zodiac calendar. People represented by pigs are diligent, generous, and compassionate. They are extremely perseverant. If they set a goal, they will work endlessly to achieve it, and won’t stop for less. Although they will rarely ask others for help, they will always happily be there for others, and lend a hand. But pigs are too nice, so they are gullible and easily taken advantage of by others.
There are a few lucky and unlucky quirks that the pig can take advantage of. Two, five, and eight are lucky numbers for pig, whereas one and seven are going to be unlucky numbers for the pig. Yellow, gray, brown, and gold are lucky colours that the pig will want to take advantage of. But the pig should avoid red, blue, and green, as these will be unlucky colours for the pig. The pig’s flowers of choice are going to be hydrangea and the daisy, as these will also bring luck to the pig.
While 2019 is going to be the Year of The Pig, the remaining Zodiac animals will also see changes in their lives. The Rat will enjoy a year full of happiness and prosperity. It’s going to be a prosperous year for the Ox, who will see many opportunities to make money. While the Tiger is a strong and independent zodiac sign, they will need to learn to compromise in 2019. The Rabbit will be able to let its guard down and make new friends. The Year of the Pig will cause Dragon to reconsider some things in its life. Snakes will have to be more combative and persuasive this year. Horse enjoyed a wonderful 2018, but 2019 will be even better. Goat and Monkey will see chance and luck take a huge role in 2019.
