Which Chinese Zodiac Signs Are Unlucky For 2019

Be wary of the wrath of the earth pig.

What's the difference between Chinese astrology and Western astrology when it comes to the New Year and horoscopes. Each year, it may seem that there are two separate calendars where zodiac signs are celebrated and a fresh season of life begins.

The Chinese new year often follows our western new year by 25 days. As you make your new year's resolutions on January 1st, you can consider the meaning of Chinese astrology and their zodiac sign symbols to make new ones that are meaningful for 2019.

2019 falls under the care of the earth pig who is known for his giving and friendly nature but certain zodiac signs still need to be cautious in the lunar new year.

If you’re not familiar with Chinese astrology horoscopes the basic concept is pretty easy to understand. There are 12 animal zodiac signs that represent a different persona: Rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.

Unlike western astrology that follows a 12-month cycle, Chinese astrology follows the lunar calendar with a 12-year cycle and every year is represented by a different animal. Each animal is broken down within five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. So although someone might share the same animal sign, they might not necessarily share the same element, which can affect how each individual thinks, performs, and their overall fortune.

The earth pig is known to be very sociable and make friends from all walks of life, which makes him quite popular among his peers. The earth pig usually sees a lot of good fortune and support from his loved ones as well. This is the first time in 60 years that the earth pig has ruled a year in the Chinese astrology since 1959.

In Chinese astrology, certain zodiac signs do not mesh well because of their different viewpoints and personality traits. This means that certain zodiac signs will have a harder year of misfortune. Although the pig is popular for his kind, social, and giving nature, he still has his fair share of enemies or people he’ll clash with. So don’t be fooled by the earth pig’s friendly and naive personality, he can still aggressively bite back to his foes.

Here are the four Chinese zodiac signs that need to be cautious in 2019 when dealing with the earth pig, and what their horoscope can experience:

1. Snake (1977, 1989)

The snake sign, the sixth zodiac, is best known for his calm demeanor in difficult situations. Snakes are usually regarded as intelligent and great thinkers in Chinese astrology who will do anything in their power to obtain their goals. However, snakes are intuitive individuals who are great communicators but prefer to talk less. They’re independent and are distrusting of others by nature.

The snake sign is almost the complete opposite of the pig zodiac. Unlike snakes, pigs are very trusting of others and can come off as extremely naive. The pig sign will usually put others before himself but the snake sign will think of his own wellbeing first, which isn’t always a bad thing. However, because of their contrasting viewpoints, it’s hard for the snake and pig to get along. In 2019, the snake sign should be careful in dealing with finance, love, and career.

2. Monkey (1980, 1992)

The monkey is the ninth sign in Chinese astrology. The monkey sign is known for his high intelligence, competitive nature, and great leadership skills. In childhood and adulthood, the monkey will achieve great praise from the people around them. As a result, the monkey sign can get arrogant and jealous when others do better than them.

In contrast to the monkey, the pig sign is more humble in nature. The monkey sign will usually try to achieve the highest position and accomplishments while the pig will settle for less or “enough”. Because of their different life goals and interests, pigs and monkeys do not get along. monkeys will find 2019 to be quite challenging as it is favorable to the pig’s goals. The monkey sign should be cautious in education and health this year.

3. Ox (1985, 1997)

The ox is the second zodiac in Chinese astrology. The ox is best known for his honest and resilient nature who often prefers to be low key and out of the spotlight. Ox signs rarely lose their temper and make great leaders because they think logically in tight situations.

The relationship between an ox and pig can go in two ways: A match made in heaven or sworn enemies. Because of the turbulent relationship between the ox and pig, the ox sign may find 2019 to be full of ups and downs. Overall, 2019 will be a good year for the ox but the ox must be careful in situations regarding career, education, and health. However, the ox will see a flourishing love life in 2019.

4. Pig (1983, 1995)

The pig is the last sign of the Chinese astrology. The pig is known for his kind and giving nature, which can sometimes come off as being naive to some people.

In Chinese astrology, a person’s zodiac year is considered their bad luck year because he or she will encounter Tai Sui, the God of fortune, who might bring obstacles in their life. The pig sign should be cautious and make careful decisions in 2019 to overcome the obstacles and new challenges.
