What will the Year of the Pig in 2019 bring for you and your family? Here’s the Chinese zodiac forecast, according to Renaye Chan of Alchemy Consultancy Services.
1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
The Year of the Pig promises progress and positive change for those born in the Year of the Rat. The Pig is a friend to the Rat and will help them obtain new heights in their career. Under the blessing of the sun, the Rat is set to benefit from the support of those around them. It is a good idea to make allies and strengthen relationships with possible benefactors this year. Now is the time to acknowledge the positives in your life in order to succeed. Harmony is extremely important this year. If you want to reach your goals, you must learn to work well with others and avoid unnecessary competition.
The Rat is blessed in love this year as well. Both single and attached individuals have a high chance of expanding their social circles. Those looking for love have many opportunities to meet someone new; however, you must still work for it. You can easily attract people, but you should still put in effort when it comes to your appearance, charm and attitude. Attending social events this year is encouraged. However, if you are married or attached, it is better to spend this time with your partner. Social events may distract from your time with each other. Your charm may also make those around you jealous, so be careful. Otherwise, enjoy this blessed year of auspicious love. This is a good year for children.
Health is the only area where Rats may face some hardship this year. For those born in the Year of the Water Rat (1912 and 1972), be extra vigilant with regard to your bladder, kidney and urinary system. Remain hydrated and avoid damp or wet areas. Be especially careful during the first half of the year as your health is more sensitive and you can be prone to small illnesses. Do not over-strain or push yourself too far, and ensure you remain hydrated. Try to avoid alcohol as your tolerance has dropped and you may be prone to emotional conflict if you’re not in the right mindset. Make sure to connect with nature through daily walks or slow jogging.
While your wealth is fair this year, avoid getting too attached to your wealth or recklessly seeking more. Money will come, but once you let it go through some risky investment or reckless endeavour, you will never see it come back. You must be careful with your wealth as you may need to spend more on your health and other expenses this year. Always ensure you have a healthy balance in your bank account for emergencies. Do not carry anything too valuable with you when you are outdoors. Make sure you thoroughly research all possible investments before making any decision. Remember that ‘haste makes waste’.

The Ox is another sign that prospers in career during the Year of the Pig. Your career is governed by Wood, and as Pig contains Male wood, it promises to bring you fortune and opportunities in your career this year. However, the decisions of the past year will have a big impact this year, which you must endure. Luckily, the Year of the Pig also endows you with renewed strength and vitality to handle obstacles that may come your way. Take a more hands-on approach when it comes to managing your business. You must learn to be active when it comes to opportunities and challenges. If you are planning to change careers, the initial transition will be difficult, but rewarding.
In general for all signs, the Year of the Pig is one of the more social years, with more opportunities for social events, gatherings or parties. However, the steady Ox may not feel very interested in these festivities. While you still know how to enjoy yourself, you may end up missing opportunities for romance because it is not your main interest this year. Even attached Ox may not appreciate the opportunity to bond with their loved one. You must keep your eyes open this year. Romance and passion are blossoming all around you, but you must bring yourself to notice it. Do not rush into any relationships though; always build up a strong foundation of feelings before making any commitment.
The Ox is naturally blessed with good health, but the year of the Pig is one requiring necessary precautions. Small illnesses, cuts or changes to your diet can spiral into more serious health problems. Therefore, you must keep a close eye on your health and not take any symptom or issue too lightly. Emotional health can also take effect as you are more sensitive to your surroundings. This year may test you with family conflicts or burdens. It is a good idea to work towards bonding with your elders this year. You must pay special attention to areas of the stomach, throat and respiratory system. It is a good idea to either start a diet or take up group exercises.
Both the Ox and the Pig can get along well with each other. As water is wealth and the Pig is connected to water, this year promises many opportunities for additional or extra income. The Ox must turn to their practical and strategic side in order to handle these opportunities. It is important to have a financial plan or else the wealth will flow in quickly and rush by without you being able to enjoy it. This can be a fruitful time for the Ox, if they practice both caution and rationality. Be extra careful with the people you choose to invite in to help handle your wealth.

Note: Tiger is one of the four Zodiac Signs that is in conflict against the Grand Duke Jupiter (also known as Tai Sui).
The Pig may seek to help the Tiger, but the Tiger prefers to work alone to tackle their own obstacles in their way. You may find that benefactors and colleagues may suddenly wish to support you, but you must be cautious, as the Tiger can be prone to conflict if not careful in choosing who they work with. Learn to recognise people who are already accomplished, and do not take anything at face value. This year does not promise any sudden major changes to career but it has the potential for the Tiger to achieve many small goals that will lead to something fruitful and rewarding. Choosing the right people to work with is integral to this.
The Year of the Pig promises increased social gatherings and opportunities to socialise for many signs. It will be easy to build your circle of friends as you exude an image of generosity and friendliness. However, you have mixed luck in love this year. Single Tigers may find that they need more time to come back from rejections. Attached Tigers will need to learn to be more sensitive in their relationships as conflicts and misunderstandings are more likely this year. It is advised to avoid making any major changes. Instead, take your time to get in touch with your more emotional side. Learn to be more forgiving and tolerant of your partner and family.
The Tiger’s health is dependent on how timely you schedule regular check-ups and spot possible symptoms of illnesses. This is a good time to pay attention to your health and wellness as nothing major is coming your way. You must focus on getting more Vitamin D and plenty of fresh air. Enjoy this time and take on activities that allow you to stay outside, such as hiking, gardening or jogging. However, you need to avoid being reckless just because you are in a prosperous period. Avoid over-exhausting yourself and remember to remain hydrated. You may find yourself being more careless so be cautious about your activities and travels this year. Try to avoid sitting for too long.
The Tiger’s decisions play a big part in their wealth this year. There is a chance that you will face losses this year if you are not careful with your investments. It is likely that your finances will fluctuate heavily this year. However, your gains will be as prosperous as your losses. You will need to keep a close eye on your finances and consider employing strict budgeting measures. You must maintain a sense of discipline and diligence when it comes to your finances this year. Avoid gambling or investments that are deemed too risky. You may be able to make up your losses through gains in your career.

The Rabbit is favoured by the Pig, however, the Rabbit cannot carry all of the generosity and warmth given by the Pig. You have the potential to make big changes for yourself and be noticed by those in higher positions. However, the Rabbit must be careful not to be too contented or become too stubborn in having to make everything perfect. It is your alertness and willingness to progress that will help you increase your productivity. As the Pig is related to elders and those of seniority in your life, you should consider turning to senior members to look for your benefactors and advisors. You will gain the most valuable information from them.
The Year of the Pig blesses the Rabbit with good fortune and luck when it comes to their love life this year. As compatible signs, the Pig provides the comfort and safety that the Rabbit needs to venture out and find love and increased friendships. Single Rabbits will find many unexpected but welcomed opportunities to meet someone or form bonds. Married Rabbits should enjoy this time by improving their relationship with their partner. However, you can also feel smothered if you’re not careful, so always set boundaries. Physical intimacy is important this year. Therefore, it will be beneficial if you can meet with your partner face-to-face instead of through email or text.
While the Pig is prosperous for many areas of the Rabbit’s life, it is cold water to the usual warmth that the Rabbit is used to. Thus, the health of the Rabbit may be more delicate this year and you will have to be more diligent when it comes to health matters. Stress and emotional health are the most important for you as it could affect your work life. Thus, it is important that the Rabbit finds other outlets to release tension and express themselves creatively. Be vigilant about your health, especially about your diet. You may be prone to overindulging in the year of the Pig so it is important to be cautious.
While the Rabbit may feel empowered by the good fortune in the other areas of their life, they should approach matters of finance and money carefully. This may not be a good period for you to invest. Your income will flow in steadily and slowly — do not feel that you need to hasten to bolster it. Avoid being too reckless or impractical. Instead, enjoy the wealth and fortune you already have. Do not make promises on finances to others. Consider turning to others for advice on how to save money. Those born in the Year of the Snake can be good advisors.

The Year of the Pig provides the Dragon with many opportunities to shine in their career. However, the Pig doesn’t give this reward freely. The Dragon will have to rely on their skill, charm and assets in order to handle the increased pressure and workload that will be laid on them. If used correctly, this can be a very fruitful year for the Dragon in terms of progress and productivity. The bulk of your income will come from your career as well. The experience of hardship and obstacles will also help shape you to face tougher obstacles in future with a more professional and readier attitude. Rely on your rationality and practicality to prevail.
The Dragon belongs to the element Earth. It is possible that Dragons can find new love; however this relationship might not have a positive outcome. It is best to be cautious and take your time to understand the other party well before committing. As the current cycle of the Chinese calendar ends, fortune falls upon both single and attached Dragons. Love can be found in the most unexpected of places and attached Dragons will find progress in moving their relationship forward. Beware of misunderstandings or arguments among married couples. Attached Dragons should be cautious not to let their eyes wander this year.
Like many other signs belonging to the element of earth, the Dragon will have to keep watch over their health this year. There’s a good chance your health will not give you any trouble, but only if you keep up to date with your doctor’s appointments and do not brush off small ailments. You must also be cautious about your temperament. Do not allow yourself to be drawn into fights or conflicts. Finding a positive outlet or hobby to let out your tension and frustration without hurting yourself or others is advised this year. This is a busy year for you as well, so make sure you take adequate breaks and rest where needed.
This year, the bulk of the Dragon’s fortunes will come from their careers. The Pig also blesses the Dragon with fortune in their wealth and bank accounts. However, you must not enter anything blindly. By now, the Dragon should realise that they can only rely on their own wisdom, knowledge and better judgement. You can employ others such as the Horse or Pig to aid you in financial investments, but you should always take great precaution when inviting others. This year, you may be required to travel more frequently. Focus on reorganisation or improving accountancy methods for your financials.

Note: Snake is one of the four Zodiac Signs that is in conflict against the Grand Duke Jupiter (also known as Tai Sui).
The Snake’s career is represented by the water element. As the Pig belongs to the water element, this year brings in many opportunities for you to shine and progress in your career. This growth does not come without its own challenges and hardships. The Snake may need some time to reorganise and restructure themselves before they jump right back into work. How hard you work will determine how well you do overall. Small mistakes or administrative errors may frustrate you, but you are equipped to handle them. Avoid changing jobs or career fields this year as this will be too stressful a change to be beneficial to you.
The prospect of love is fragile this year. As the Year of the Pig rolls around, it exposes the inner sensitivities and insecurities of many signs. The Snake may be prone to being more sensitive and emotional, especially around their partner. Rejection will be particularly difficult for them to get through. However, knowing this, you can learn to guard yourself and cut through conflicts with honesty and openness. The charm and slick wit of the Snake can be attractive, but jealousy can easily cloud these traits. It is your job to make sure that your intentions (such as your feelings, ideas or thoughts) towards the other party are clear and that your charming wit is on full display. This can be a good time for marriage if the right time is chosen.
Getting enough sleep is important for the sign of the Snake this year. As you are more sensitive to your environment and conflicts, you are more prone to bouts of insomnia, depression and stress. It is important that you do not take your health for granted. Health must be at the forefront of your mind this year. Always ensure you have enough breaks and never work while you’re fatigued or exhausted. Indoor activities such as yoga, table tennis or Zumba are highly favoured this year. Both your physical and mental condition should always be at their fullest before you embark on anything.
Wealth may be shaky this year. The Snake should be cautious as they may be prone to making decisions that may seem good at the time, but ultimately lead to a loss in the long run. This is even more likely if you are sleep deprived or not in the best state of mind. You must learn to be conservative when it comes to where you wish to spend your money. While your income through career will likely be stable, you must take caution when it comes to outside investments. This is a good time to budget and employ money-saving methods in your daily life.

The Horse must be prepared to work hard this year, but be thankful as your efforts will not have gone unnoticed. The Pig blesses the Horse with the energy to handle challenges that may come your way, as well as help you grow and develop in your career. You must be cautious, however, as the more progress you make, the more responsibility you will likely inherit. Do not try to shoulder everything by yourself. Do not be afraid to turn to those around you for aid or advice. Make sure you have plenty of reliable colleagues or mentors with strong bonds that can help you in your time of need.
This is a blessed time for those born in the year of the Horse to find love. The energies of the Pig meld harmoniously with that of the Horse. Single Horses will find this is a most fortunate time for meeting someone new and sparking potential romances. Horses who are married or attached may find that their spouse/partner shares many of their interests and passions in this year. However, both have the potential to put work first over romance, neglecting this prosperous time for emotional growth and bonding. Attached Horses should be extra careful not to neglect their partners or lose time with them in favour of work. Be cautious about new love — do not rush into anything without proper assessment.
Those born in the Year of the Horse are normally active and health conscious. This good health continues on in the beginning of the year. However, you may find yourself spending more time at home. This may lead to more minor accidents at home. Small issues concerning your health may crop up as well. They will be minor, but should be taken care of immediately to avoid them leading on to more serious issues. It is especially important that you get enough sleep and remain hydrated. As this year promises to be a busy one, you must be more vigilant concerning your well-being, even if you are in good health.
Your wealth may be bolstered if you work with other people when it comes to making investments or starting anything new. However, the Horse must be careful about watching the environment. External policies and shifts in the world of economics can indirectly affect your investments or finances. Do not be hasty in spending as well, as trivial or household expenses may increase this year. Budgeting your resources can help lessen expenditure and keep your bank account full for a rainy day.

The Pig and Goat are both farm animals so they can get along well together and be beneficial to each other. This year, those born under the sign of the Goat can finally enjoy the fruits of their labour. Naturally hardworking and dedicated, now is the time where the Goat sees their bigger projects come to a successful end. Whatever the age, now is a good time to plant new seeds for the beginnings of new projects or businesses. This is also a good time to jump at any new career goals or openings. However, ensure that your heart is in the matter before making any decisions.
The Goat is blessed by the Pig this year. Major events of love are likely to take place, be it marriage or starting a family. Single Goats can also look forward to potentially meeting new people and starting new relationships. Pursuing your interests and hobbies this year can be a great way for you to meet like-minded people. Your judgement and experience will help guide you into finding the right partner. Do not miss out on this blessed time and do not be afraid to put yourself out there to attract others.
Your physical and emotional health are tied together strongly this year. The happier and more alert you are, the more likely you will be healthier physically. The Goat is hardy but already cautious when it comes to their health. This attitude will serve you well this year. You should learn to enjoy yourself and maintain that reasonable and practical attitude. Doing things in moderation and keeping to middle ground is a good way to help you keep balance when it comes to your health and emotional mindset. For those who have an excess of earth element in your birth chart, you will have to keep a close eye on your digestive and intestinal system.
Lucky stars shine upon those born under the sign of the Goat for this year. Organisation and proper management are important to take advantage of these lucky stars. Coming off of 2018, your wallet may feel a little light, thus you may not have as many resources as you’d like at the beginning of the year. However, as you continue on, a few choice investments will be able to reinstate your wealth and much more. Do not let your fortune go to your head, however. Remember that the advice of others is always invaluable and that you should not be frivolous or hasty to spend or make any decisions. Enjoy this time within reason.

Note: Monkey is one of the four Zodiac Signs that is in conflict against the Grand Duke Jupiter (also known as Tai Sui).
Under the blessing of auspicious stars, those born under the sign of the Monkey are seen to have good luck when it comes to their career this year. However, you must still be careful, as there is still an absence of fire for your career during the year of the Pig. Things may still work against you if you do not look to make difficult decisions or put in effort into changing your direction for the better. This is a time where you must take action and focus on your duty. Do not take anything for granted and do not expect things to come to you naturally. Your hard work will eventually be repaid.
Those born under the sign of the Monkey thrive this year, under the increased social gatherings and activities that the year of the Pig brings. You are naturally very sociable and energetic and will have no problem keeping up with all the new people that you will be able to meet this year. These gatherings will give you many opportunities to find a potential partner. However, you should be careful not to let the dream of love cloud your eyes. If there are other issues in your life, you should focus on them first. When it comes to finding someone, you must be careful not to rush into anything. Instead, learn to build a relationship before making any major decisions.
The tireless Monkey may still find themselves getting a little worn out from the constant cheer and social gatherings that the Year of the Pig provides. It is important to pay attention to your stamina and physical health. Ensure that you get enough sleep and remain hydrated, so you are prepared for the energetic days ahead. Choose exercises that can help you slow down or slowly start up. Remember to stretch before anything and try to avoid any extreme sports this year. You may be prone to being more careless, so you should avoid risky behaviour and save up your energy for special projects this year.
The Year of the Pig promises some positive financial results. Those born under the sign of the Monkey may even find themselves with income from several sources. However, you must be cautious as this money can easily be lost through negligence or carelessness. The Monkey must learn to take active interest in where their financial income is coming from and always be on alert for the next change. You should also avoid recklessly spending your money as you are prone to do. Learn to save up for a rainy day or invest your money back into safe bets. You will be glad you did, come the end of the year.

Those born under the sign of the Rooster may find their career a little stagnant this year. Nothing will change if you do not put in effort and focus on getting things changed. Even then, it is likely the developments will not be major in any way. Now is not a good time to consider changing careers or industry fields. The year of the Pig instead encourages you to focus on your current goals and ambitions. Learn to solidify and strengthen the position you have now. Ensuring your position is secure, along with good ties, will be important in helping you advance in your career in the following years.
As the Chinese calendar cycle comes to an end, those born under the sign of the Rooster are finally breaking away from old relationships and hardships. There is no point in trying to revive the past or bring back old loves. Right now, you must look to the future. This can be a trying time, as you are trying to start all over again from ground up. Learn to accept that you may need time and learn to focus on the positives of life. Your mood will dictate how your relationship with your partner will go. If you focus on being optimistic and seeing the good in life, you will find yourself attracting more people into your life.
Roosters who have been cautious of their health will prosper this year. But Roosters who have kept up bad habits will find that it is finally coming to haunt them. This is a good time to finally take control over these bad habits and let them go. Once you get rid of them, you will find yourself freed of the anxieties that these bad habits were unknowingly supplying you with. Replace these bad habits with healthier hobbies such as exercise or new and creative activities that allow you to express yourself. It can be a painful time of transition, but it will be worth it in the end.
While the Rooster may find that their wallet is a little light coming off the end of 2018, this year provides them with many opportunities to reclaim that wealth. The Rooster must turn to their own knowledge and prowess in order to turn investments in their favour. Projects that favour your interests and allow you to express yourself creatively will bring about the most success for you, both financially and in your emotional health. Be smart about your investments and try not to stray from financial plans.

Coming off the Year of the Dog, those born under the sign will find some of the burden and difficulty lifted off your shoulders. As the year of the Pig comes around, it will usher in a new sense of fortune and cheer. While the transition may be difficult initially, you should learn to enjoy what may come your way. There may be some delay in your career during this change, which may frustrate you at first. Learn to keep up your optimism and energy so you’d be ready when things kick back into gear. It is a good time to consider picking up a new skill or learning more about a particular subject, so you are extra prepared when it is time to start again.
While the Dog and Pig are not blessed with the strongest connection, they can still be a perfectly amiable match with each other. The Dog must learn to enjoy the carefree nature of the Pig and let go their insecurities a little bit. Learn to go along with the flow. Do not worry too much about attending a gathering, instead, go there with the goal to have fun and meet new people. There are many opportunities for you to expand your circle or meet potential partners. The year of the Pig is also a good time to reconcile with old flames or make up from conflicts with family members. Attached Dogs may find this is a fertile time for starting a family.
It is all about balance this year. Those born under the sign of the Dogs may find themselves slipping into one of two categories. They will either find themselves being too tense and unable to let go of work, or they will fall too early into a state where they are not motivated enough to push forward. What is important is to find a balance. Learn to schedule proper breaks in between work. Ensure that when you reward yourself, you truly deserve it. It’s a good idea to create a schedule and have it evaluated by a third party. Hygiene practices are especially important this year. Ensure you always keep up appearances. It is a good way to maintain effort.
The Pig brings in many opportunities for those born under the sign of the Dog to bring in wealth. Such wealth can help you secure your financial security in the long run. However, do not feel disheartened if you cannot grasp all opportunities that come your way. Take what you can obtain and run with it. Do not look at all the flowers you did not pick — instead focus on cultivating what you already have in your garden. This is a prosperous time and you should not be afraid to take some risks to assure your future investments and monetary gain. Pay close attention to the environment around you and how it can affect your budding investments.

Note: Pig is one of the four Zodiac Signs that is in conflict against the Grand Duke Jupiter (also known as Tai Sui).
As the Year of the Pig rolls around, those born under the same Zodiac sign will find that benefactors and new colleagues may come out to support them. Team building and group schemes are extremely important now when it comes to progressing in your career this year. You will find yourself strongest surrounded by capable people. It is up to you to find and build relationships with these people. Be careful, as with more allies, you will also meet more competition and friendly rivals. Focus on the networking aspect of your career. You will likely to be kept very busy otherwise.
Those born under the sign of the Pig who are single may find that their opportunities for socialising have increased tenfold for this year. However, finding a romantic relationship may take more time. While you have more opportunities, it may take you a while to find someone who will meet your criteria. Love may not always be your main focus as well. Attached Pigs may find that this increased sociability can distract from family matters. This may cause conflicts if your partner is the jealous type. It is important to make intentions clear and reassure your partner. Conversely, you can take this opportunity for the both of you to go on an adventure together.
There is a bit of a clash come the Year of the Pig. The energy of this sign may increase the physical and emotional vulnerability of those born under the sign of the Pig. You have to keep a close eye on your health and make sure to bundle up carefully. Avoid damp or wet places. Going out into the sun can help supplement a lack of Vitamin D. Daily walks can also help clear your head as you may be prone to bouts of depression if you are not careful. Do activities that spark your creativity and make you feel happy. Learn to enjoy this year to its fullest.
Wealth may take more time and effort to come in. There may be small unexpected bonuses along the way, but most of your income will come in as a result of your hard work and effort. You must be extra cautious with how you choose to spend your money. You may feel tempted to splurge, but it is important to stick to a budget and try to be thrifty. People are your strongest assets now. Therefore, it may be good to find someone trustworthy to help you handle your finances. Those born under the sign of the Horse may be able to help you the most; however, ensure you do not just blindly trust anyone.
