Year of the Pig: Personality horoscope
Courageous, energetic, proud and jealous, the Pig is often consulted in professional life for his ingenuity and manual skill. Although they can be found regularly in family gatherings or in society, the natives of the Year of the Pig like to be alone and take care of themselves, enjoying small pleasures that would appear insignificant to the other zodiac signs of Chinese astrology.
The Pig enjoys the countryside. When he seeks his inner peace, the call of nature and fresh air becomes a vital necessity for his personal balance. Often dreamy, the apparent robustness of the Pig actually hides an anxious nature.
It is easy to get favors from the Pig. Not knowing how to say no, he becomes fatalistic when he is denied something in return, especially in love. Remarkably polite, he forgives easily. This intelligent and lucky being also appreciates money, not for the power it provides, but because it makes possible the realization of his much needed material comfort.
In work, some people tend to say that the Pig is relatively slow. On the contrary, when he has an idea in mind, the Pig knows very well how to optimize his organization to achieve his project successfully.
His relative honesty makes him instinctively allergic to wrongdoing. When the Pig feels cornered, he turns suspicious, stubborn and hermetic, revealing nothing about his true feeling nor his private life anymore.
