15th of February
Here is one of the zodiac’s most reliable sign that is intelligent, tolerant and sociable. Blessed with common sense and a taste for the aesthetics, Pigs are loyal and
good-natured. Though a little old-fashioned, those born under the sign exhibit great fortitude, patience and endurance. Pigs are also said to be lucky and
will always find a bright star shining above them in their hour of need. They have a penchant for the finer things in life. Unfortunately, the Pig’s
hedonistic lifestyle may bulldoze over his sensible personality. They have big hearts but can become unnecessarily involved and mess things up instead. Their
need for luxury makes them snobbish, stingy and conceited. Gullible and naïve, Pigs find it hard to understand the imperfections in their world.
There are five types of Pigs, each with different characteristics:
Type of Pig
Year of Birth
Good-natured, lovely, easy-going, generous, brave but irritable
Ambitious, persevering, but impatient
Communicative, popular among their friends, with a strong sense of timekeeping
Broad-minded, amicable, and willing to help others
Gentle, modest, earnest, responsible, but subjective in life

Health: Pigs have a good health all through life. Frequent dinner parties and social activities are inevitable for pigs, so they should avoid excessive eating, drinking and smoking, which can cause sickness. In addition to adopting a balanced diet, proper exercise is badly needed for pigs to keep fit. As pigs have a free mind on everything, they rarely encounter stress trouble. Faced with overload work, they know how to relax themselves from tiredness. Sleep is a usual way for them to refresh themselves.
Career: Pigs enjoy great fortune in their careers. Their work and cause develop in a relative smooth way. When encountering trouble and difficulties, they tend to receive help from others. With a great sense of responsibility, they are not afraid to try to do what they are interested in. They have rich creativity and imagination. They can take up such careers as entertainer, caterer, doctor, veterinarian, or interior decorator.
Besides, some promising careers include transportation, entertainment, retail or hospitality. In social relationships, they should build up their own interpersonal network to help them achieve career success.
Pigs patience and kindness make them do well in caring careers.
The Best Love Match:
Rabbit, Goat and Dragon
Pig and Rabbit: They are a very compatible couple. The Pig appreciates the good taste of the Rabbit. The Rabbit understands the Pig well.
Pig and Goat: One of the happiest possible combinations. Both are home loving and loyal.
Pig and Dragon: Their marriages last forever. The Pig is supportive and understanding, and the Dragon appreciates it.
Words of Caution:
Pigs need to keep out of the clutches of the Snake. The Snake's secretive and suspicious nature conflicts badly with the Pig's straightforward and genuine quality. The snake will make a complete slave out of the Pig to the extent that the poor Pig loses all power of strength.

The Chinese zodiac signs are determined by the lunar year in which you were born. The Chinese believe the animal ruling one's birth year has a profound influence on personality, and destiny.
The saying is: "This animal hides in your heart."
Years Corresponding to Chinese Zodiac Signs:
The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and
in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around
the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
