The Chinese Zodiac is something that has fascinated millions of people across the globe for hundreds of years. Originating in the Far-East and also sometimes called the Vietnamese Zodiac, it is based on the legend of the Jade Emperor who invited animals to take part in a race; each animal would be granted a special year in the Far-Eastern Calendar based on what position they won in the race. Subsequently, every human born thereafter would also take on the qualities of the animal whose year they were born in.
We are just leaving the Year of the Dog. Unlike Western Astrology, the Chinese New Year begins in either January or February; the Year of the Pig commences on February 5th. Each year has a significant effect on us, depending on what animal we ourselves are.

So, without further ado, let’s see what the 2019 Year of the Pig has in store for you!
Rat: People born under the Year of the Rat are typically shrewd, cunning and clever. The pig and rat are not traditionally friends in the zodiac and the rat would be wise not to undertake any major projects until the year is over (2020 is the Year of the Rat, where he will experience much positive fortune.)
Ox: People born in the Year of the Ox are resilient, determined and hard-working. Pigs are not their traditional friends and this may prove a challenging year for these sturdy beasts. However, the ox will pull through, as he always does.
Tiger: People born in the Year of the Tiger are brave, sensitive and daring. The pig is a friend to the tiger and tiger people should see a surge in fortune this year, particularly in areas of finances.
Rabbit: People born in the Year of the Rabbit are gentle, accommodating and dislike conflict. As part of the same trine, rabbits and pigs are great friends and the rabbit can enjoy a more peaceful year with much focus on loved ones.
Dragon: People born in the Year of the Dragon are noble, commanding and powerful. Dragons and pigs have a good relationship and the dragon can look forward to a prosperous year where his ventures will expand considerably.
Snake: People born in the Year of the Snake are wise, cautious and attractive. There is no love lost between the pig and the snake, so the snake will experience a series of ups and downs this year, with some frustration and minor setbacks taking place.
