🐷 People born in the Year of the Pig are honest and hardworking.

They are tolerant beings, praised by their friends for their kindness and generosity.

Pigs have a taste for fashion, and love to feel loved. Hedonists, Pigs have a voracious appetite for the pleasures of life, especially for carnal pleasures. While this might make them appear superficial, they're always willing to spend a fortune just to satisfy their urge to please, and live their life fully. Brave, energetic, proud and jealous, when at work they're often consulted for their ingenuity and their manual skills.

Although they can often be found in social or family gatherings, natives of the Year of the Pig love to be alone to care for themselves, offering themselves small pleasures that may rather seem insignificant to many.

The Pig loves the countryside. When Pigs are in search of inner peace, nature and fresh air become a vital necessity to them. Dreamers at times, however their rugged durability  can hide their true anxious nature. Indeed, one can easily obtain services from the Pig. Not knowing how to say no, Pigs quickly become fatalistic when they're denied something in return, especially in love. Remarkably polite and forgiving easily, these smart and lucky beings appreciate money, not for power but for the realization of their own material comfort. Although some tend to say that Pigs are relatively slow, when they've an idea in mind, or are convinced by an idea, they know very well how to prioritize, rapidly implement and deliver on time a business project.

Their intangible honesty makes them reject instinctively bad or reprehensible actions. When Pigs feel cornered, they turn into suspicious beings, compartmentalized, apathetic, totally sealed on their life and their inner world.

🌳 Wood Pig

You’re a Wood Pig-Boar if you’re born in 1995. In 2017, you’re 22 years old. Your Totem Number is 12. Your Unlucky Number is 18.*

The Wood Pig stands out for his remarkable openness and sociability.

Appreciated by his circle of friends, he's generous and optimistic, sometimes even a little naive. The Wood Pig knows how to forgive his enemies, which can sometimes lead malicious people to try to abuse his kindness. The gluttony of the Wood Pig is equaled only by his magnanimous nature.

🔥 Fire Pig

You’re a Fire Pig-Boar if you’re born in 1947 or in 2007. In 2017, you’re 70 or 10 years old. Your Totem Number is 24. Your Unlucky Number is 30.*

The Fire Pig is curious, determined and playful.

He is an epicurean, whose intense and constant search for pleasure can sometimes lead him to lose his footing with reality. If the Fire Pig has a tendency to accumulate objects and riches around him to reassure himself, he's none the less generous and attached to the well-being of those he loves.

🗿 Earth Pig

You’re an Earth Pig-Boar if you’re born in 1959. In 2017, you’re 58 years old. Your Totem Number is 36. Your Unlucky Number is 42.*

More reasonable and more robust than his fellows, the Earth Pig manages to achieve his projects thanks to his strategic vision and his skill in business.

Joyful and responsible, greatly attached to his family, the Earth Pig doesn't count his time or energy when it comes to feeding and protecting his loved ones.

🔧 Metal Pig

You’re a Metal Pig-Boar if you’re born in 1971. In 2017, you’re 46 years old. Your Totem Number is 48. Your Unlucky Number is 54.*

The Metal Pig is the most expansive of his fellows.

Open to the world, his direct speech, devoid of any artifice, can sometimes attract to him unexpected enemies. Gifted with a lively and voluntary character, a true workaholic, the Metal Pig must temper his emotions. Indeed, the excesses of anger manifested by the Metal Pig are flaws that he must learn to control, especially if he wishes to avoid people using his own defects against him.

💧 Water Pig

You’re a Water Pig-Boar if you’re born in 1983. In 2017, you’re 34 years old. Your Totem Number is 60. Your Unlucky Number is 6.*

The Water Pig is the most diplomatic, the most skillful, but also the most narcissistic of the Pigs.

No expense is too expensive in his eyes, as long as he decides that it's necessary to improve his dressing-room, to renew her interior decoration or to nourish his delicate palate. Extremely sensual, sometimes credulous (like all Pigs), the Water Pig is the most typical representative of the 12th sign of the Chinese zodiac.

The Water Pig particularly appreciates luxury and worldliness. His hedonism and ferocious appetite for all the pleasures of life can, if not tempered, lead him on hazardous roads.

* The Totem number combination may be embedded in your phone number, the number of your home or the license plate of your car, a hotel room, or as the indicative number of a city or country. Totem numbers mean that the life element the Totem number contains has a secret potential and can be highly beneficial. On the other hand, the Unlucky (or danger) Number combination signals that one should better stay on alert when confronted to a place, object or situation containing this figure.
