Happy Chinese New Year


According to chinese astrology , 2019 is a good year to make investments, not just in business but in friendships. It is considered an auspicious year because the Pig attracts success in all spheres of life. In Chinese culture, Pigs are a symbol of wealth and people born in the Year of the Pig are said to have a attractive personality and be blessed with good fortune.

The Pig is the twelfth and last of the Chinese zodiac animals. Jade Emperor held a party and decreed that the order of the animals in the zodiac would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. According to one myth, the Pig was late because he overslept. Another version says that a wolf destroyed his house and he had to rebuild his home before he could leave. Whichever you wish to believe, Pig was the last of the twelve to arrive.

As well as a twelve year cycle of animals, the Chinese zodiac also cycles through the five elements of nature and yin and yang. Paired with the Celestial Stems, this gives a 60-year calendrical cycle.
In 2019, the pig is yin and earth and earth is brown. Yin Earth is wet soil, flatland or farmland, so 2019 is also called the year of Muddy Pig. The transition from Yang Earth Dog of 2018 to Yin Earth Pig of 2019 can see mountains being washed away. It can be a dangerous time for large organisations or countries.

Personality and characteristics

Pigs might not put themselves in the limelight but they want power and responsibility in order to obtain what they want.
Even when given a humdrum job they tackle it energetically and enthusiastically. They aren’t extravagant or greedy but they enjoy the material things of life and are seen as successful by others.
Being able to hold solid objects in their hands gives them security.
These Pigs make friends from all walks of life but if they have any fault, they can be too trusting. If people do take advantage of them, their wide circle of friends will help out.
