Personality of the Pig

Chinese Astrology: The Pig

In Chinese Astrology being born under a certain year assigns you to a certain animal. To be born under the sign of the Pig the years start with 1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043.

Born with a naturally patient and cheerful disposition, the Pig, or Boar, is an outgoing, jovial character who is able to brighten up and encourage anyone he or she meets. Pig people are by nature kind and caring, with an easygoing manner that belies their resilience and tenacity. Honest as the day is long, they expect others to be just as sincere as they are -- which contributes to the Pig's special charm, but which also gives people born under this sign a trusting, almost wide-eyed naivety when it comes to dealing with others.

Always considerate, the Pig is ready to drop whatever he or she may be doing and run to the assistance of anyone in need. Because Pigs are so generous, they give willingly of their time and money to help those less fortunate than themselves. Sometimes people take advantage of their exceptionally good natures, but they seldom bear a grudge and always give others chance after chance to redeem themselves. More than anything, these people like harmony and detest discord, and will go to great lengths to overlook or excuse bad manners and crass behavior, or to smooth other people's ruffled feathers. However, if put upon too often, even this normally easygoing individual will draw the line and begin to get angry. A Pig in a rage is not a pretty sight!

Pig people can be taken advantage of, and certainly taken for granted, as they are so trustworthy and entirely dependable. By nature they are more at ease giving than receiving, and are always happy to share -- although this works both ways, and they do not realize that some people are more possessive than they are and have no wish to share back.

Yet despite their down-to-earth good cheer, Pig people are arch-sensualists at heart. They adore the good things in life and have a special fondness for an easy life. Creature comforts are essential to their well-being and, if the truth is told, it is a pampered life of luxury that these people truly crave. This is the one area in which a Pig can go wrong: for just as Pig people will put everything they have into their work, or into helping others, they can also sometimes be found giving themselves a bit too whole-heatedly to a life of pleasure.

When wallowing contentedly along, Pigs are sensible, sensual and sensitive, sweetly naive, caring, self-sacrificing, erudite, talented, open-handed, candid, outgoing, amusing, charitable, obliging, graciously hospitable and virtuous.

But when their elastic generosity has been stretched beyond its limit, out pops Piggy's darker side. Then, he becomes hot-tempered, pessimistic, outrageously epicurean, earthy to a fault, sardonic, snobbish, snide, authoritarian, competitive, know-it-all, stingy, victimized and sometimes downright criminally mad at the world.
