Year of the Pig #ChineseNewYear

My best wishes to all those who celebrate Chinese New Year, which starts today according to the lunar calendar. It’s an occasion for families to get together for intimate dinners and welcome the last of the Chinese zodiac’s signs, the Pig.

You are a pig in the lunar calendar if you were born in: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019.

So … what does the year of the pig hold?

The pig is believed to be a symbol of optimism, generosity, enthusiasm and is also known to be disciplined and hard working. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

From all that I’ve read, here are a couple of highlights.

The Year of the Pig will stimulate traveling, so expect to take more trips if you haven’t in the past. Because the pig is also a lover of life, it should inspire all of us to live life and do what we want to do this year, but … the pig is also gifted with an extraordinary imagination and can sometimes be naive. As such, proceed with caution.

Hmm … sounds a bit contradictory to me, but I’m sure we’ll all move forward as we see fit. 😉

Find your birth year and your Chinese sign, and learn more about your coming year at numerous sites by googling: Year of the Pig.

Happy New Year to all, especially if you’re born in the year of the pig!

  1. Happy New Lunar Year Eden. Reading your piece and the chart I feel that I am a pig. Indeed the Flying Pig was a nickname given to me by my Rugby Team, hence one of my logos. But on reading that my birth year makes me an Ox I am now thinking that maybe my Mum carried me for a longer gestation period! lol

  2. Well, I work hard but I’m undisciplined. My sarcasm is often indirect. I’m never satisfied but optimistic. Perhaps I’m a pig hybrid, a hopeless romantic that goes well with cheeseburgers.

I'd love to hear from you.
