Some facts about Pig people

The Pig is the twelfth animal sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to a 12-year cycle.

With a round and fat face, the Pig is the symbol of wealthfelicityhonesty, and practicality in Chinese zodiac culture. Many money pots (Chinese piggybanks) are made pig-shaped as people believe Pig invocation will bring good luck monetarily.

The most recent years of the Pig are 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947, 1935…

In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements: WoodFireEarthGold (Metal), and Water. Each Pig-element year corresponds with an element and comes once in a 60-year cycle. For example, 2019 was the year of the Earth Pig. The next Earth Pig year is 2079.
