Pig in Chinese Zodiac

The Pig is the twelfth animal of the Chinese Zodiac. According to legend, the Jade Emperor decided to assign twelve animals to the Zodiac. The announcement went out to the entire land. The order of the animals would be determined by which one arrived at his palace first. Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, and Dog were the first eleven to arrive, and Pig arrived last.

People born in the year of the Pig are honest, happy, and easy-going. They are very educated, brave, and can achieve great things in life, but can also be materialistic and lazy. Pig individuals know how to survive, which can make them over-indulgent when they have excess.

Pig Personality

Pigs benefit from good luck and fortune. Pig individuals are independent, responsible, and generous, born with a desire to have successful lives. They are lucky people and like to relax and have fun wherever they go. Thanks to this easy-going approach to life, they may often procrastinate. Genuinely believing in themselves can get them far in pursuit of their dreams, but to achieve their goals they must employ hard work and diligence. Perhaps one of the best qualities they possess is their kind-hearted nature. They are interested in the well-being of their family, relatives, and friends, and will not shy away from helping when the situation requires it. It is rare to see them fight with anyone unless for a good reason since they appreciate others and care about having good relationships with those around them.
