All cycles have beginnings and endings and the Chinese zodiac is no different. On February 5 the dog bounds off leaving the new ruler, the pig, in his place. The pig is the last of the twelve zodiac signs. As such he represents completion, rest, peace and is closely connected with family and the home (domesticity). The return of the pig represents the best time to complete projects, add finishing touches to your work and prepare for the next phase life has to offer. It is not a year to sit back and do nothing. Projects that have been started need to be completed this year. On a global scale the pig is more concerned with domestic, internal issues and policies rather than foreign affairs and involvement. Foreign negotiations will usually be resolved peacefully during this time. Pig years are ones with plenty of social activity, well-being, generosity, and compassion. The pig likes to indulge and can easily overextend himself with luxuries and extravagances. Since this tendency is dominant it is important to be mindful of your finances during pig years. Thankfully, this tendency is tempered by the fact that 2019 is an Earth year. The element of Earth curbs excessive spending and should help in making plans and sound decisions. It will be important to be open to different views and beliefs to make the most of what this year offers. Business and industry are usually well aspected and there is more likelihood of commitment and a general feeling of security and trust.
