Year of the Pig

Welcome to the Year of the Pig – Some fun facts

The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals within the Chinese tradition . According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The story has it that the Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house and he had to rebuild his home before he could set off. Other sources said that Buddha called for a great meeting when he was about to leave the Earth. The Pig came in last.

Either way when Pig arrived, he was the last one and therefore could only take twelfth place, hence the twelfth sign of the zodiac. It is believed that the term “lazy-pig” or as “lazy-as-a-pig” was derived from this.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9 to 11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

The Pig and the Elements

The natural element of the Pig is Water. Thus, it is commonly associated with emotions and intuitions. Yet, given that along with the elements, the animal zodiac also follows a cycle, each of the elements affect the characteristic of the same Earthly stem.

However, the Pig is yin, and thus only the negative aspects of the elements can be attached to them, thus only 5 kinds of Pigs are found in the zodiac. They are the following:

  • 乙亥 (yǐhài) – The Wood Pig
  • 丁亥 (dīnghài) – The Fire Pig
  • 己亥 (jǐhài) – The Earth Pig
  • 辛亥 (xīnhài) – The Metal Pig
  • 癸亥 (guǐhài) – The Water Pig

Pigs might not stand out in a crowd. But they are very realistic. Others may be all talk and no action. Pigs are the opposite.

Though not wasteful spenders, they will let themselves enjoy life. They love entertainment and will occasionally treat themselves. They are a bit materialistic, but this is motivation for them to work hard. Being able to hold solid objects in their hands gives them security.

They are energetic and are always enthusiastic, even for boring jobs. If given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. They believe that only those people have the right to speak, and that’s what they want.

May you have a prosperous New Year, what ever your sign
