The Year of the Pig!
Were you born in a Year of the Pig?

Most recent Pig Years:
1935, 1947, 1959, 1971,
1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

According to ChineseNewYear.net , "those born in the Year of the Pig have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life." Native Pigs are likely to find 2019 to be a " transitional year" that contains tricky situations that are best overcome by sticking them out.

"Pigs may find luck in some areas of their life, but others will require hard work to avoid potential pitfalls. Pigs will most likely experience many emotional ups and downs, making them feel frustrated and sad at times."

The Chinese Zodiac site, Chinahighlights.com, says that Pig people are known for being "diligent, compassionate, and generous."
