Sign of the Boar
The Chinese calendar is divided not by numerical years, as is in the Western concept of time, but in a 12-year cycle of animal signs, which continually repeat themselves. According to Chinese legend, these twelve signs are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram (Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar (Pig).
In Chinese folklore, traits and characteristics similar to the Zodiac horoscope have developed around each of these annual animal signs -- some of which are more desirable than others. Here is a look at the qualities of each of them.
Year of the Boar: Feb 05, 2019
Sign of the Boar
Loyal to a fault (in some cases), the Boar is blessed with understanding and patience. Fun-loving and simple, the Boar -- also known as the Pig -- enjoys life to the fullest. And for the Boar, there is no greater joy in life than being there for a friend in need. This loyalty can sometimes be perceived as gullibility by the outside world, but a true friend of the Boar is sure to appreciate his steadfast devotion. Boars are peace-loving, which drives them to avoid conflict in their own lives and also to help friends and loved ones bridge chasms in their own relationships.
