Chinese Year of the Pig


The Pig is the twelfth of the 12-year cycle of animals that appear in the Chinese Zodiac, related to the Chinese calendar. The natural element of the Pig is Water. It is also commonly associated with emotions and intuitions. According to the myths, the Pig was the last to arrive when the Jade Emperor called for the great meeting. Other sources said that Buddha called for a great meeting when he was about to leave the Earth. The Pig came in last. Legend has it that just as the emperor was about to call it a day, an oink and squeal was heard from a little Pig. The term “lazy Pig” is due here as the Pig got hungry during the race, promptly stopped for a feast then fell asleep. After the nap, the Pig continued the race and was named the 12th and last animal of the Zodiac cycle.

Your Money and Finances 

Finances can cause problems world wide in 2019 and with a dominant earth energy with a yin polarity, we can expect issues with global finances and stock markets.  It may also be a great year for investing and growing your stock portfolio as prices will be at a low, as this is just a dip and should rebound.  Feng Shui earth cures and enhancers are much needed in 2019, to avoid any financial losses, and also generate new income.  Your actions can create wealth and prosperity as long as you are grateful for everything that you receive.  Wealth will not come to you if you are receiving it at another person’s expense. Always be fair.

Financial prosperity for you is just around the corner, be ready for it!

The Year of the Pig brings opportunities for financial growth, but you must do your part. Begin with some helpful ideas:  Take out a specific amount of cash for your discretionary spending and stick to that amount each week. Pay off your credit card on time and in full every month. Spend on items and experiences that truly bring value to your life — things that make you happier, make your life easier, etc. Splurge, within reason, on something that you really want. Get receipts for any tax-deductible donations to charities and write them off on your taxes. Avoid impulse purchases by holding off for 48 hours to see if you really want it. Understand the difference between “wants” and “needs” and budget accordingly.

Practice Being Nice

Generally, no matter how old they get, Pig people still only see and believe that all men/women are basically good. Pig people constantly sacrifice their own happiness and comfort for the sake of their close friends. You can’t give everyone in your life 100 percent, so you likely give your parents, friends, and significant other a percentage of your energy.  Consider a piece of that your own, and honor that in your choices.

The Year of the Pig, 2019, is a year to evaluate your actions. Practice being nice. If you’re only nice to people when you’re on display or when the person is of some sort of social value to you, you’re not a nice person. As a general rule, you should be as nice to the maid as you are to the president of a company.  Ironically, people who hold themselves in high regard are those people who treat everyone with respect.  In reality, the caricature of the rude, rich, and snobbish person isn’t true. Often it is the mediocre, the lowly, those who have a beef with their own lives, who take it out on others around them without regard.  You cannot control the actions and behaviors of others, only your personal reactions to them.  This is the year to turn your actions into positive ones.  Respect everyone.  Be fair to all people. Treat everyone with kindness, and do not be mean or rude to people, even if they don’t agree with you.  You really don’t know what others have going on in their lives, and the sadness they might be experiencing.
