Chinese Astrology
Pigs are excellent companions, intellectuals with a strong need to set difficult goals and carry them out. They are honest, tolerant and reliable. Expecting the same from others, they are also a bit naive, which is sometimes taken advantage of. Regardless of this, the Pig rarely holds a grudge. Pigs are very humorous individuals and often really funny.

Pigs overlook the faults and shortcomings of others for the sake of optimal social harmony. The pig is the epitome of honesty, righteousness, generosity and is humble and uncomplicated. The Pig’s success in life is characterized by its warm, indomitable and sincere heart. Although the Pig is a social and sociable creature, it is difficult to offend it and the Pig easily dismisses unwanted criticism.

Contrary to the traditional Western view of The Pig, it is perceived in Chinese astrology as probably the warmest and most venerable of all the twelve animals. Pigs have exquisite taste and manners. In fact, they harbor so much perfectionism that they are sometimes perceived as snobs. But that is a misconception. Pigs simply have a naturally luxurious nature and a sense of aesthetics and quality – in interior design, food, clothing etc.

The Pig has benevolence and compassion towards everyone and certainly does not consider itself superior in some respects. The Pig also cares a great deal about the well-being of their family and friends and works hard to make everyone in their life happy. Helping others is in itself a joy for the Pig, who feels best when everyone is smiling.

Pigs are highly intelligent beings who like to constantly educate themselves and familiarize themselves with new areas. Pigs make wonderful partners thanks to their hearts of gold and love for family.

The way to quickly benefit from Chinese Astrology is to remember that the greater degree of harmony, Yin-Yang that can be created in any situation – the greater degree of favorable fate, happiness and prosperity will come your way.

This means that you are aware of the position that will potentially bring the greatest progress, happiness, prosperity and luck to your Chinese animal. However, because this optimal position is assumed to be volatile in nature, it can be difficult to predict, let alone consciously and purposefully achieve and maintain.

Your navigation towards the optimal position is thus something that should often have your attention. The course must be continuously adjusted. The mindset of constantly striving towards the optimal state of harmony is a way of life.

To judge which action will take you in the direction of the optimal state of harmony, you get help from the Chinese animals.
