Kind, caring, and good natured describe those born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Pig. Those of this sign are pleasant to be around and enjoy socializing, hosting parties, and learning new things. Pigs are typically easy going to a surprising extent. They take it upon themselves to serve up self-punishment when they make mistakes, and they are highly aware of the comfort level of those around them. Pigs are intelligent, but in a specific way. They are very curious and don’t like to be left out of conversations due to a lack of understanding of the topic at hand. Pigs will investigate all of the topics they don’t know about in order to get at least a general understanding of that topic. Once this is achieved, though, Pigs tend to stop digging into one topic, preferring to know a little about many subjects rather than know much about a single subject.

Those born during the Year of the Pig believe that everyone is essentially good at heart and that those who exhibit bad behaviors are just confused souls acting out in negative ways. Since Pigs admire their own awareness of peaceful understanding and compassion, they can also be manipulated easily. They are indeed naive and could avoid heartache and material losses by trusting others less, but this would destroy a great deal of what makes them so wonderful for others. Pigs inherently understand this and choose to maintain a childlike fascination with the possibilities of the world, even if it leaves them vulnerable.

If Pig is your Chinese Zodiac sign, then you are in luck. This sign tends to even out particularly closed off or self-protective tropical zodiac signs, allowing an individual a certain sense of freedom from their own self-imposed limitations. Plus, Pigs are naturally lucky in life and love, and tend to function much like the tortoise in the famous fabled race against the hare. They slowly and methodically make their way through life in a calm and patient manner, often exceeding the intense and more noticeable achievements of their peers. One thing that you should never do is try to tell a Pig how to live his or her life. Though they are open to almost any conversation, they don’t take well to being told what to do. Any help should be offered thoughtfully and casually, and one should never be so assuming to believe that a Pig wants their help. While Pigs rely on others as much as others rely on them, they are often underestimated by friends and family. Pigs are just as capable as anyone else to achieve their dreams and live a happy, successful life. They just want to do it their way, with their own personal style.

Pigs love luxury and decadence, and particularly enjoy sharing earthly delights with a partner or with close friends or family. Though they may hit some speed bumps on the road to romance, Pigs tend to be quite good at attracting the right partners, which can also offset the tendencies of their paired sign in the Primal Zodiac.

There are 12 Primal Zodiac signs for the Eastern Zodiac sign of Pig, one for each sign of the Western Zodiac.
