December 18 - December 24, 2017
For you the coming to an end of the month of the Pig means soaking up as much of its influence as possible before it comes to an end on Monday. This is the one chance you get all year to connect with your native energy, bringing a reminder of all the things that are important to you, while remembering who you are. This is also a time for new beginnings, making the early hours of the week the most important for drawing a new line in the sand. It is Monday's New Moon that might bring the month of the Pig to a close, but it also ushers in the month of the Rat, a month that for the Pig is often the most lucrative of any year. This year this is even more likely as this is the first month of the Rooster since the Year of the Monkey ended earlier in the year, which has given career and professional matters a major push.
2017 - Year of the Rooster
The Pig and the Rooster aren’t necessarily the best of friends, but they share and cohabit the same barnyard and are used to each other’s ways. The Rooster knows how you operate and you’ve spent enough time watching the Rooster strut around the barnyard to know how he operates.
It is that sense of camaraderie that becomes more pronounced this year. The Pig and the Monkey live in different worlds, but the Pig and Rooster share the same barnyard. The Pig will never understand why the Rooster has to get up at the crack of dawn and lord it over the barnyard all day. At the same time, the Rooster knows he will never get the Pig to do anything it doesn’t want to. It’s that feeling of ‘he knows me’ or ‘I know you’, that sums up the essence of the Year of the Rooster for you.
You will be drawn to want to associate both personally and professionally with those that know, understand and ‘get you’. This makes camaraderie, teamwork and being socially connected important during the Year of the Rooster. For you, this is a year that is all about togetherness. In the barnyard the Pig has a fairly cruisy life, mainly because the Rooster is always on the lookout for predators, watching over everything that is happening.
You’re likely to find that you either attract people like that into your life this year or those that are already there will become more important. Again, personally and professionally it will be important to have people around you that are watching your back. In the meantime, you will find that you have an especially good professional year on your hands, mainly because of all the hard work invested during the Year of the Monkey. It is often until a year comes to an end that the real benefits are felt.
This should see things come together both professionally and financially, especially on the income front. The Rooster will be making everyone work hard for what they achieve this year, but as you have already invested much, he will cut you some slack. However, when it’s needed you will have to roll up your sleeves and get things done.
About the Pig
The Pig is self-sacrificing, sincere and merry. They may come across cynical and brash in the beginning, but underneath the tough exterior is a perfectly softhearted and decent soul.
A Pig is noble and strong. They make great friends, although not always easy friends. Pigs expect their own generosity to be reciprocated equally by friends or they may quickly end the relationship. They also possess a reckless streak that can make them difficult to handle.
Pigs are noble and chivalrous people who are compassionate, diligent, generous, and fun to be with. They maintain lifelong friendships, yet even if they marry someone from their ideal partners, the relationships are likely to be rocky.
Despite the fact that they are good-humored, sociable and cheerful, tact is not one of the Pig's best virtues. They do not fare well in diplomatic careers. A Pig's emotional temperature is easily raised. They have strong sexual desires and physical love is very important to them. Pigs make loyal and loving partners.
