Occupying the last position in the Chinese Zodiac, the 12th, the Pig symbolizes such character traits as diligence, compassion, and generosity. Pigs are self-reliant, very sociable, dependable, and extremely determined. Pigs are peace lovers and don't hold grudges. They hate arguments, tense situations, and try to bring both sides together. In life they make deep and long-lasting friendships. Pigs enjoy social gatherings of all kinds, and look for parties to attend. In fact, Pigs must watch themselves so that their incessant pursuit of pleasure doesn't interfere with other aspects of their lives. Pigs belong to clubs and they make terrific fund raisers. They have a real knack for charity and social work. Pigs always listen to problems. They won't mind getting involved and try to help. Pigs have big hearts. A problem that Pigs have is that they are too innocent and naive. Being honest and trustworthy themselves, they have a hard time understanding the motives of those with less scruples.
Pigs do not dazzle or shimmer. They possess the old-fashioned chivalry that grows on you until you totally depend on it. It is so easy to trust Pigs. They have a calm expression and a sincere manner. They are blessed with endurance and work steadily at tasks with great patience until completion.
Once Pigs arrive at a decision nothing stops them. Of course, before they reach that decision they weigh all the pros and cons. They definitely want to avoid complications. Sometimes they ponder so long they miss the opportunity altogether. But never mind, Pigs always believe in miracles, and miracles always happen to them. Fortune favors Pigs. They always find someone to help them without having to beg.
In romance, if not careful, Pigs may be taken advantage of. Pigs trust everyone and believe everything they hear. They are unselfish and enjoy helping their friends. Although they are gullible, they are actually quite intelligent and know how to take care of their own. If you hurt their feelings, Pigs often carry the pain for years. They have a hard time saying no to those of concern. Often they wish they had said no.
Pigs will always be looking for ways to work off all their extra energy. They work and play hard. Even if they lose everything, Pigs manage to bounce back. Their life path supply them with all they need. The Chinese believe Pigs own the Horn of Plenty.
Pigs are most compatible with a Rabbit or Sheep and incompatible with the Monkey and Snake.
