Last but not least of the twelve Chinese Animals, the smart and friendly Pig closes the cycle, rounding up all the good fortune and opportunities that the cycle has to offer.
This time the PIG is associated with the EARTH ELEMENT (there are five in Chinese Astrology).
This is therefore the last Earth Element Animal before the switch to the next twelve years Element, Metal, in 2020. Each Element lasts in fact for twelve years and is in turn associated with each of the Twelve Animals.
A sense of humor, kindness and peace making abilities will help many of us to have a fortunate and joyous year. As the saying goes: ‘Anyone can go to Heaven. Just be good!’
