Year of the Pig Chinese zodiac sign personality traits

People born under the sign of the Pig have a big personality and are blessed with good fortune in life. They enjoy life; those born during Pig years love entertainment and will frequently treat themselves. That might mean they are a little materialistic, but they work hard to have the wealth they have.

The Pig is enthusiastic about everything! They are full of energy and people love feeding off their energy. The Pig zodiac sign is a joy in the workplace and can make any boring meeting or team project feel exciting and new. They will freely speak their mind and crack jokes to make even the saddest in the room smile.

However, the Pig Chinese zodiac sign can be a little naive and idealistic. Pigs tend to be optimistic and gentle; they trust easily and are a little gullible, which can sometimes run them into trouble. This doesn’t have to necessarily be a bad thing, because sometimes it is nice to have people who believe the best in a person. However, it is important for them to reign themselves in sometimes and not believe every word they hear. While the Pig can be too trusting, people always find them very trustworthy. Their easy-going nature and infectious excitement make people happy. People appreciate how genuine the Pig zodiac sign is.

Year of the Goat Chinese zodiac elements

Each zodiac sign, in addition to its animal counterpart, also has a corresponding element: metal, water, wood, fire, and earth. These elements tell more about the individual born under the Pig sign, as well as give more detailed observations about a person's future.

Metal Pigs are born in 1971 and 2031

These Pigs have a tendency to be lazy and unmotivated, which runs them into trouble with their career. While the Pig’s natural financial luck gets them out of the bigger scrapes, this Pig has to learn to be careful with their financials for their entire life, or else one bad accident might waste away their good luck.

Water Pigs are born in 1983 and 2043

In contrast to its other signs, water Pigs are responsible and serious — they will have a very successful marriage because they know how to communicate well with friends and family. They will have good fortune, largely due to their big support system, and have a good chance of retiring with ample savings.

Wood Pigs are born in 1935 and 1995

These Pigs are genuine and lovable. You know how to be happy without money, and that’s an incredible strength. Every day will feel trouble-free because you yourself are very easygoing. Wood Pigs will have plain but smooth-sailing relationships.

Fire Pigs are born in 1947 and 2007

These Pigs are very dependent on others, often because they have grown up around money. If they go into jobs that revolve around cooperation and teamwork, there is a chance they might build a more solid foundation and work ethic. But, because of how dependent they are on other people, they will face rocky romantic relationships.

Earth Pigs are born in 1959 and 2019

These Pigs are social butterflies and will have many friends. They will have a large support system, but will only find success later in life.
