Chinese Zodiac: What does the Year of the Pig mean for you?
PIG | 猪
YEARS: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959
Contrary to what you might think, when it is the year of your Chinese horoscope, it is traditionally the unluckiest year for you, with trouble and danger lurking around every corner. So, Pigs, be on guard!
Take stock of the last few years and prepare well for the year ahead. The year of the dog hindered your ability to achieve happiness but this year you will be under the protection of your sign and should reap some good fortune. However, you are the centre of attention this year so you may attract people with ulterior motives – be especially careful to distinguish between good friendships and opportunistic ones. You will likely experience many emotional ups and downs in 2019 but just grin and bear it as next year promises to bear good fruit for you.
