The Chinese Year Of The Pig

Pigs make good, sincere tolerant and honest companions. They are sometimes taken advantage of as they expect the same treatment in return. Pigs have a good sense of humor and are funny. Pigs also enjoy having the best of everything, craving for a life of luxury. They are good organizers with a steadfast and patient nature and will overlook peoples faults to keep the peace.

The Pig will show signs of being diligent, friendly, genuine, generous, hardworking, helpful, obliging, sincere and willing. But the negative signs are that they are gullible, lazy, materialistic, naive, obstinate, pigheaded and superficial.

Famous Pigs include Alfred Hitchcock, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ernest Hemmingway, Fred Astaire, Henry Ford, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Tennesee Williams and Woody Allen.
