The Pig

Pigs (chinese sign: 亥) are fond of companionship and they are the best party people at all... Good mood and bright atmosphere during the feast with generous ambiance are their specialties.

The Pig invites for a convivial evening, which is accompanied by a glass of wine

The Pig has noble attitudes. It shares its goods and likes it splendorous. On the one hand the Pig is generous and on the other hand, this means it is expecting generosity as well… It might be taken into consideration that the Pig appears uninvited and is standing at the door…sometimes it is shown the tendency not to ask for things.

Certain limitations might be strange

It might occur during a dialogue or conversation. It is not easy for it to save secrets – it behaves exceedingly loquacious and gives away facts and details which should have been published. Mostly it is honest and talks freely. The Pig is the perfect listener.

Credulity and good faith belief could be naïve – might become an obstacle

The Pig is rather credulous and trusting – means it believes in man’s inherent goodness. Intrigues are not its game. It is not a question of style that these characteristics provide brazen abuse. The Pig is naïve and fails when it must be decided to proclaim a "no" if required.

But for all that it is not the stupid one and may come to know what is going to happen - it would become furious when someone crosses its path. Quarrel and public conflicts are not in their sense – they would do everything to avoid it and find a popular solution for all participants. Peace and goodwill are the utmost importance. It suffers from an unharmonious situation.

The Pig enjoys life and sometimes it likes to prefer being a lazy-bone, but throughout it is able and willing to achieve many objectives of life. It would have no fears to be the casual worker taking part in a worthwhile pursuit.  It develops a great amount of energy and intends to impart the secrets of its knowledge. The Pig is supportive to one another. The Pig supplements the lust for life to stockpot of labor.
