Chinese New Year 2019 - Brown Earth Pig/Boar. Meet Esther!
Esther is a shapely Canadian house pig who has about a million and a half followers on her social-media accounts. She owns trunks full of clothing, and she weighs about the same as three football linebackers. Esther was sold as a micro pig, but is now about 600 lbs! She was born 2012, year of the Dragon, is living the good life as a Pig, especially this year! 

In the US, Tuesday Feb 5, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2019 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is at 5:28 PM PACIFIC at 15 Capricorn! Capricorn is an Earth sign and doesn’t suffer fools, is consummately professional, a successful manager and Builder of the best. Pigs are akin to western astrology’s 8th sign Scorpio, so truly, don’t mess with them. There will be consequences even if the dish is served cold. On the other hand, when they accept you, they are loyal beyond words.

Previous Pig years were 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, now this one 2019, and next is 2031! The last Earth Pig year was 1959. Pig is the twelfth Chinese zodiac sign, after the Dog, and before the Rat! When determining your year, remember, the first day of the New Year falls at the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so the date of the new year varies year to year.

The whole scoop is Female, brown, Earth Pig. Pig is in the water group, so is happy with wet soil, farmland or flatland. Earth absorbs water. Water and Earth extinguish fire. Earth Pigs are considered communicative social butterflies, popular with friends from all walks of life. They have a strong sense of timekeeping. In general, Pigs are admired for their great fortitude, patience and endurance.

In China, Pigs are considered lazy and not intelligent, OR Pigs are considered to be strategic, analytical and smart. We do know that our barnyard brethren are cognitively as complex as dogs, primates. This is not to say that pigs are equivalent to chimpanzees in intelligence. They are smarter than 3-year-old children! And, to bust a myth, they are perhaps the smartest, cleanest domestic animals known – more so than cats and dogs, according to some experts. Pigs don’t have sweat glands, so they roll around in the mud to stay cool, also to prevent sunburn and insect bites. And they have been known to save human lives.

In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Master Allen Tsai says: Earth Pig will excel in financial or business related careers, especially those require complex analysis and planning. A routine job may be too boring for Zodiac Pig. The more challenging and exciting the work environment is, the more motivated Zodiac Pig will be. They will work hard and accumulate wealth gradually. They can enjoy a prosperous and comfortable living at old age.

Pigs are social animals that under free-ranging conditions live in groups of approximately eight individuals. The groups typically consist of three sows and their offspring. Boars are solitary. 2019 social activities, festive occasions and family reunions are likely to be numerous. It’s a good year for marriage or to have a child. Pigs average 10-12 per litter! Though Pigs rarely seek help from others, they are compassionate and generous, will give others a hand. Pigs never suspect trickery, so they are easily fooled.

Men are optimistic and gentle, not the best with money. These men are also quiet. They love learning but don’t really know how to put their knowledge into words. They’re not conversationalists, but treat everyone warmly. This results in a large social circle. Whenever they run into difficulties, there are always people who stand up to help. Though people will lie to them, more will love them.

Women attend social events whenever possible and treat everyone genuinely. Sometimes they are over-friendly. In their excitement, they forget to give others personal space. Playing with children is one of the things that bring them the greatest joy.

Health If you feel a little feverish and unstable take special care of yourself. If periods of doubt are fleeting, questioning yourself is always beneficial. Changing your lifestyle or living environment brings us to find new resources within ourselves that we did not even suspect. Avoid gluttony. Watch the quality and quantity of your meals and practice a regular sport activity adapted to your body type. Above all in 2019, it is essential to avoid idleness.

Fun FYI: President Harry Truman, himself a Monkey, said, “No man should be allowed to be president who does not understand hogs.”

Famous Pigs:  Meredith Foster, Thomas Jefferson, Ronald Reagan, Hillary Clinton, David Bowie, Jules Verne, Alice Cooper, Simon Cowell, Amy Winehouse, Carlos Santana, Henry Ford, Iggy Pop, Stephen King, Meat Loaf, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Elton John, The Dalai Lama, Wolfgang Mozart, Luciano Pavarotti, Carl G. Jung, Lucille Ball! And, believe me, the list goes on! Many famous Pigs!
