The Pig belongs to the Earthly Branch hài and is connected to the hours of nine to eleven in the evening. It was the twelfth animal to make it to the Jade Emperor’s party. There are different stories to explain this. One is that the Pig slept in too late. A more exciting story, and one that is more sympathetic to the Pig, is that its house was attacked by a wolf, leaving it completely wrecked, so the Pig needed to put it all back together before coming to the party. Pigs are representatives of wealth, with their plump appearance suggesting there is no shortage of food for them to indulge in. Pigs are seen as having been dealt a good hand in life. The most recent years of the Pig were 2019 and 2007, and the next is 2031.


Personality and characteristics

Pigs are known to be doers, and they are not content to simply discuss something but never see it come true. They can fly under the radar, but that does not mean they don’t have much to offer. Their passion and drive are enviable, and they apply it towards everything in life, not just a select few things they care about. They know what they want, though, and they like having a good time. They seek to achieve a lot as they want to live a good lifestyle and have nice things, which is part of what drives them. They care about being high status as well.



Pigs match well with Tigers, as they are comforted by the courage and dependability that Tigers provide. They also are great fits with Rabbits, who admire how smart and genial Pigs are. Pigs tend to be good friends with Sheep too, as both of them have numerous things in common. Snakes and Pigs are not good matches at all, and they are just naturally distrustful of each other without trying to look past their prejudices. Pigs also get along poorly with Snakes, with negative vibes permeating their encounters.



Pigs are tough and don’t fall sick easily, and they also are so energetic that they never seem to tire. However, they don’t give small health problems the attention that they need, so despite their general good health problems can build over time. Their hectic schedules prevent them from resting properly, and their poor eating habits can lead to cardiovascular problems and elevated blood sugar levels. Pigs have the habit of always pushing forward no matter what challenges are ahead of them, but when it comes to their health they should slow down and seek more holistic solutions.



Pigs never let their emotions boil over, so they can handle high pressure situations better than most people. Their calm demeanor and ability to work with people makes them good at coaching and educating. They like helping people achieve their potential, and they are interested in charitable pursuits, making them good fits for jobs at non-profits or for raising money for different causes. They also do well in real estate, especially if they are able to cultivate the side of them that takes greater risks.
