By moving into the Lunar New Year, the year of the Earth Pig on 5th February, we are not just moving into another lunar year, but one of the most important in a 12 year lunar cycle for all of us. For the Year of the Pig is the final year of the natural 12 year lunar cycle, so it is a year of completion, endings and for summing things up. Check out your Chinese Yearly Horoscope!
To see what you personally can expect, please scroll down for your zodiac sign and read the detailed description!
Chinese Yearly horoscope – RAT
(1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996 and 2008)
On 24th January 2020 the Year of the Rat will begin, bringing you to the start of a new 12 year lunar cycle. As the natural lunar cycle starts with the Rat and ends with the Pig, you are the only sign that has the same personal and natural lunar cycle. By that, I mean for all of us, the Year of the Pig is the final year of this natural lunar cycle, but for 11 out of 12 of us, we are at a very different point in our own lunar cycles. Some might be at the start of a new personal lunar cycle, some might be halfway through and others at all different stages. Only those born during the Year of the Rat have their personal lunar cycles in sync with the natural lunar cycle. This makes the focus of any year doubly intense for you and this will be felt more strongly and this makes the Year of the Pig an important year. Next January, you will move into the Year of the Rat and into a new 12 year cycle, while as you move into the Year of the Pig you move into the final year of a 12 year lunar cycle that began in February 2008, almost 11 years ago to the day. Now, as you move into the Year of the Pig you move into the final chapter, a year that is all about bringing this current cycle home. This is a year for completion, finishing up projects or whatever you have been working on or towards over the last 11 years. It is also a year of preparation, recharging your batteries and clearing a space for a new 12 year lunar cycle, which begins next January. The Year of the Dog, which ends on the Chinese New Year was a socially charged and busy year, with people to see and places to go. By the time the Year of the Pig rolls around, you are usually ready to put out the ‘do not disturb’ sign, taking time out to hear yourself think as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. However, for the social Rat, hiding away or spending the next 12 months navel gazing is not your cup of tea. However, what you will find is that if you don’t allow enough time for the Pig’s mandate that you may find yourself getting tired and cranky at times. You may find yourself saying at times throughout the year ‘I just need a bit of space’. That need for time to hear yourself think will be time spent with the Pig, as you wrap up one 12 year lunar cycle and prepare for the next.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – OX
(1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997 and 2009)
For the Ox, the Year of the Pig is something that might take some adjustment, especially as the Pig tries to make life easy, social and serendipitous. Each lunar year always ends on the month of the Ox and as the Year of the Dog was also drawing to a close, this fostered a strong sense of both personal and professional responsibility. For anyone else this can be a burden, but this is what the Ox thrives on. This has been a chance to recharge your competitive spirit, and a chance to draw on your natural drive, determination and your ability to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. Then the Pig comes along and asks you to relax and then instead of shouldering all that responsibility on your own, attracts support and draws people to help out. Before you know it you’re a team player, with many hands making light work. At the same time, the Pig encourages your social life, reminding you that life can’t be all work and no play as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. For anyone born in any other year this is party time, with the Year of the Pig an auspicious year for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building. You will eventually relax into this and in both your personal and professional life you will soon realise that you have reached one of the best years in this current 12 year lunar cycle. Groups, teamwork, collaboration and togetherness will all flourish this year and over time you will begin to trust that you don’t have to be in control all the time. This is also a year that comes with fewer responsibilities in terms of where you stand in this current 12 year cycle. When the Year of the Rat begins next January it will be time to bring things home and start preparing for the Year of the Ox, which begins in 2021. You are also far enough away from the start or the middle years of this cycle, which can also bring responsibility. For the Ox, the Year of the Pig is not only an important year for friendship, teamwork and for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building in general, but this can also be a fun and easy year.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – TIGER
(1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 and 2010)
For the Tiger, the contrast between the Year of the Dog and the Year of the Pig is quite extreme, but it is one that you are ready for and can bring a real surge in excitement. The Tiger and the Dog are the best of friends, so he has gone easy on you over the last 12 months. In addition, the Year of the Dog is an adventurous year and whether you took advantage of or a chance to focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery or not, life was your classroom. The Pig has a very different focus, with the focus shifting to your professional game and to all things competitive and this is what makes it exciting. When life is too easy we can become unmotivated and it might be that you are ready for a challenge. The difference between the kind of challenges the Pig promotes and other challenges, is that these are of your own choosing. You might challenge yourself with new personal and professional goals and ambitions, with the Pig’s competitive influence allowing you to stay committed. For the Tiger, the Pig can be a successful professional year, attracting opportunities across the income, work and career fronts. Yet it is less that things land in your lap and more the thrill of having a goal and the triumphant feeling you get when you achieve it. This can become addictive. This also brings you to the start of the final three years of your current 12 year lunar cycle. Each 12 year lunar cycle is divided into four three year seasons, with the Year of the Pig, Rat and Tiger defining this final season for you. While the next Year of the Tiger is still three years away, the current cycle has now reached a point where it is time to start bringing things home as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. The Pig, being the first of this final three year season, is charged with fueling the competitive spirit and drive needed to start bringing things home. For that reason, many of the things you may feel competitive about or the personal and professional goals and ambitions you go after, could be those that you have been working towards already, rather than anything new.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – RABBIT
(1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011)
Welcome to the Year of the Pig, the year that you have been waiting for, for a long time, whether you realize it or not. There are three things that make the Year of the Pig an especially good year for the Rabbit. The first is that the Rabbit and the Pig are the best of friends and he will have your back throughout the year. The energy of the Pig is something you can relate to, making you feel more relaxed, with a feeling of being supported as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. The second is that for the Rabbit, the Year of the Pig is an adventurous year, with a focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery. Even if you never leave home, never travel or never set foot in a classroom, the Year of the Pig brings an opportunity to embrace life with a sense of adventure. It is less what you do during the Year of the Pig and more how you do it. The third positive aspect that the Year of the Pig brings, is its position in your personal 12 year lunar cycle. For the Rabbit, the toughest lunar year is often the Year of the Rooster, your opposing sign. This brought you to the halfway point in your current 12 year lunar cycle, which is often a time of reckoning. While the Year of the Rooster ended last February, the Year of the Dog has been a buffer. By moving into the Year of the Pig you are another degree of separation away from the Rooster. At the same time, it is not until you move into the Year of the Rat in January 2020 that you will move into the final three years of this current 12 year lunar cycle. This isn’t challenging but if anything it is exciting, and it brings with it the responsibility of having to start bringing things home. The Year of the Pig fits into that Goldilocks zone where you are far enough into your current 12 year personal lunar cycle that it is now more about the journey, but not so far that you have to start paying attention to bringing things home. When the Pig comes along and offers a year for adventure, travel, learning and discovery, the only valid response is ‘why not’?
Chinese Yearly horoscope – DRAGON
(1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012)
The end of the Year of the Dog is the real excitement on the Chinese New Year, for this can be one of the more challenging years for the Dragon as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. The Dragon and the Dog are opposing signs and this can create pressure, with the two rubbing each other up the wrong way. Often it is not until after the Year of the Dog ends and the pressure drops back, that you are aware that it was there. This is especially so if there has been any relationship tension. As the Year of the Pig begins, you should find that both personal and relationship tension drops back. Yet this is also when you will experience the benefits, for you needed the shake up that only the Dog can bring. The Year of the Pig is a more exciting year, with a lot of change possible and a chance to throw yourself into the things that you are passionate about. This is also a good year for money matters for the Dragon, and the Pig year is often a year when there can be a lot of financial growth. With the adventurous Year of the Rat beginning next January, with its focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery, this would be a good year for starting a saving account labelled ‘bucket list’. If you want the funds to do all that the Rat will open the doors to, then the Pig is able to help you with that. A little put away on a regular basis during the Year of the Pig will give you more options during the Year of the Rat. However, as the year progresses you may find that you are no longer prepared to wait for the Rat and decide to bring more adventure into your life now. Especially if one of the areas of change that the Pig is able to help you with, is changing things up in order to move out of a rut. While the Year of the Pig is a good year for money matters, this is especially so when it comes to financial matters on the home, family and/or property fronts, with July an especially auspicious month. The Pig is all about change and passion and this could have an impact professionally, with a chance to change things up in an empowering way. Across the board, if you want to make changes, this is the year to do it.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – SNAKE
(1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013)
For the Snake, the Year of the Dog has been a busy year, with a chance to catch your breath as it comes to an end. The momentum created has managed to get this professional year off to the kind of start that you can continue to benefit from. This should continue to see job growth and momentum, but without the busy pace the last 12 months have set. In a way, this is a chance to rest on your laurels and let things play out. However, the month of the Tiger, which begins on the Chinese New Year, will provide a boost in professional momentum, especially on the career front. This is a chance to capitalize on all the Dog has helped instigate over the past 12 months. For the Snake, the Year of the Pig turns the focus onto your relationships, but also brings you to the halfway point in your personal 12 year lunar cycle. The Snake and the Pig are opposing signs and this can be challenging. This is a year when you will be asked to show up in your relationships, and when you will also be required to be true to yourself. At times when your personal and relationship needs clash, there could be tension, but the Pig is here to help you create something real and authentic. This year the lunar nodes are in synch with the lunar year and this brings a lot of support on the communication front. It is less that this is a challenging year and more that you are being challenged to show up, in terms of your own personal truth and in all your relationships, from personal to professional and everything in between. However, you will find that life is less busy than it was last year and that you do have more time to invest in your personal and relationship growth. You should find that things flow more smoothly in other areas of your life and on the financial and professional fronts in particular. After so much invested during the Year of the Dog this could bear fruit on the income front this year and in June and July in particular as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – HORSE
(1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014)
For the Horse, the contrast between the Year of the Dog and the Year of the Pig is quite extreme, but it is an exciting one. For the Horse, the Year of the Dog is a playful year, with your friend the Dog not really pushing you. The Dog goes easy on you, doesn’t demand that you put more effort into anything than you need to and would rather that you come out and play. Yet when the Year of the Dog ends on 5th February and the Year of the Pig begins, so too does one of the busiest years in a 12 year lunar cycle. This opens the door to a year that is set to have a lot of job growth, opportunities and potential. You might have to work harder and life might become busier, but it comes with real potential and opportunities. This also makes the month of the Rabbit and the month of the Goat a lot more significant this year. The Pig, Rabbit and Goat belong to the same affinity triad and are the best of friends. In addition, for the Horse, the month of the Rabbit is always a potentially lucrative month, while the month of the Goat will always promote career opportunities. This makes March and April potentially lucrative points in the year, while July could see some stunning career developments. Especially as the month of the Goat kicks off with a total solar eclipse on 3rd July. The Year of the Pig is also a good year for taking more care of your health, getting in more exercise or just paying more attention to your health in general as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. The Pig supports any investment into your health and wellbeing. With the playful Year of the Dog ending on the Chinese New Year, part of maintaining your physical, mental and emotional health is holding onto some of this influence, choosing to make a balance between work and play a priority from the get go. All in all, the Year of the Pig is likely to be a busy year, but also an opportune year where you are able to experience satisfaction from time and effort invested. This is also a good year for giving back, in terms of volunteering or just being of service.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – GOAT
(1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015)
From the moment you move into the Year of the Pig on the Chinese New Year, you are likely to sink into its embrace with a sigh of relief. You are coming out of some busy years, where there has been a lot of responsibility and a lot of giving, whether on the home front, at work or with life’s demands in general. As the Year of the Dog ends this will take the weight of responsibility off your shoulders. It is not that you will have less responsibilities and more that the weight from them won’t feel so heavy. For the Goat, the common complaint when reaching the end of the Year of the Dog, is of being exhausted and that life has become all work and no play. This is partly because the Dog puts the focus on responsibility, especially to family, your job and the things you are responsible for and partly because you are so susceptible to this. The Goat is naturally responsible, especially to those people they feel responsible for, in a way that others aren’t as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. So as the Dog piled on more and more weight, chances are you just took it. This is why the Pig is always such a saviour for you, with this Year always following on from the Year of the Dog. The Pig and Goat are the best of friends, so instead of you carrying the weight of others, the Pig is here to carry some of that weight for you. This is why you will feel the weight of responsibility lighten. In addition, for the Goat, the Year of the Pig is a playful year, with its focus on matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. With the busy Year of the Rat beginning next year, the Pig is charged with finally helping you find a balance between work and play. Ironically this will have a positive spin off professionally and you should find that this is a good year for both job and career matters. It turns out that a healthy balance between work and play can improve your productivity and creativity. If you work in the creative fields then this should be an especially good year for you professionally and a potentially successful year as well.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – MONKEY
(1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and 2016)
Each new solar year takes you further into this current 12 year personal lunar cycle, taking you further away from the Year of the Monkey and into the journey proper. The Year of the Monkey ended two years ago and this was when you finished laying down the foundations for this current 12 year cycle. During the Year of the Rooster, which followed on from the Monkey, you had a chance to start expanding on everything that you began or lay the foundations for as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. Then, during the Year of the Dog there was a chance to expand those ideas, spending more time in your head, formulating plans and making choices and decisions. What began as concepts during the Year of the Monkey, became more concrete during the Year of the Dog. The 12 year lunar cycle can be seen as the four seasons of a year, with the first three years seen as spring, where there is the promise of new life, the planting of seeds and the start of a new journey. The next three years, which are the years of the Pig, Rat and Ox, are the summer years and the years when everything is in full growth. You are likely to see many of the things that have been ideas or concepts over the last three years start to become reality. This is when things get real and you are now in the process of making things happen. This can see you take on more responsibility and then instead of just talking about things, start walking the talk. For the Monkey, the Pig also puts the focus on home and family matters and this is a big year for home, family and/or property matters in general. This is something that you cope with more than others do, for this is something that you can take on board, without letting it consume you. You do often need to take on more responsibility, either at home, at work or in other areas of your life, but the Monkey knows where to draw the line. You will go right up to the line of where you need to take responsibility, but you are unlikely to cross the line to where you are also taking on responsibility for others. The Monkey is at heart a big kid and the playful side of your nature will be drawn towards the children in your orbit, making that side of family life especially rewarding.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – ROOSTER
(1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017)
For the Rooster, the Year of the Pig is always an important and interesting year and this is not a code for challenging. Every lunar year not only brings a different influence into play, and a different relationship between the Rooster and the animal governing the year, but to a new stage in your current 12 year lunar cycle. It was just under a year ago that the Year of the Rooster ended. Most people find their native year challenging, because while this is a time of new beginnings, the Rooster can push you around in order to line you up for a future it knows lies ahead. It is usually, only by looking back that we can see that what we saw as challenges, were in fact opportunities. When the Year of the Rooster ended and the Year of the Dog began, this was a chance to start nurturing the seeds sown, and as the Dog always boosts your confidence, to start getting a feel for what has taken on new life. By the time the Year of the Dog comes to an end on 5th February you should have a better sense of perspective as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. After a year, most of the challenges during the Year of the Rooster, from January 2017 to February 2018, will have revealed themselves as stepping stones or valuable blocks that have diverted things in what you can now see is the right direction. As you move into the Year of the Pig you have a much better perspective and you are ready now to make more concrete plans. The Rooster and the Pig have a similar energy in that they are both smart, articulate and like things they can get their head around. This is a year when communication becomes both easier and more important and a year when you can start making more strategic plans and decisions. You will experience the advantage this brings when the month of the Rabbit begins on 7th March, a month that puts the focus on your relationships. The Rabbit and the Pig are the best of friends, with a chance to unleash the Pig’s yearlong ability to support the communication lines on the relationship front.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – DOG
(1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018)
As the Year of the Dog comes to an end, either immediately or in the days following, you are likely to find yourself breathing a sigh of relief. Whether you were aware of it at the time or not, despite the fact that the Year of the Dog is ‘your year’ and is a time of major new beginnings, this can be a challenging year or so it might seem. The reality is, over time you will look back at those so called challenges and see them for the opportunities they were. For the Dog can see around corners and he knows what is possible over the course of this new 12 year lunar cycle and his job is to prepare you for that as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. If you were determined to move in one direction but the Dog knew you needed to move in the other direction, this would have created tension. If it felt, over the last 12 months, like you were being pulled and pushed from all directions, for the most part this may have been the Dog. When the Year of the Dog ends on 5th February, this will end and this is when you enter the domain of the Pig and everything changes. The Dog and Pig are next door neighbors and where the Dog’s job is to get you to come back to your personal truth and to lay the seeds for this new 12 year cycle, the Pig’s job is to start bringing those seeds to fruition. The Pig boosts your confidence and as you start to see the seeds planted over the previous 12 months begin to bear fruit, you start expecting more and then attracting more. For the Dog, the Year of the Pig can be a lucrative year and that will be especially so when work and job matters are favored in March and April and again when career matters get a boost midyear. It is the month of the Goat, that begins with the total solar eclipse on 3rd July, that could be a powerful trigger for income potential. While the month of the Goat will always open the door to career and professional potential, the Goat and Pig are the best of friends and this year this could be particularly lucrative. As the pressure of the Year of the Dog drops, expect the benefits to appear, across all the currencies in your life.
Chinese Yearly horoscope – PIG
(1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019)
Moving into the Year of the Pig has several implications for you. This is obviously ‘your year’, with a chance to return to your native energy and to enjoy returning to the energy that you were born into. However, this has other, major implications that are important to be aware of from the get go. By moving into the Year of the Pig you are also moving into a new 12 year personal lunar cycle, with this first year a chance to lay down foundations for the future, planting seeds, and beginning new journeys. This also comes with a warning, one that can hopefully help you to avoid some challenges over the coming year. The Pig has returned to help you reconnect with your personal truth and also to start this new 12 year journey. Yet this is a 12 year journey that the Pig only has influence over the first 12 months, after that he can’t do anything. So this is something that is taken seriously. The Pig can see around corners and knows the opportunities and potential ahead. The Pig can also look back into the past, knowing the personal truth you were born with and where life has taken you since. The Pig takes its job of putting you on the right path and moving forward seriously, putting up blocks, pushing you off wrong paths and pulling you onto the right ones. You can feel under pressure during the Year of the Pig and this can create what appear to be challenges as it stands in your Chinese yearly horoscope. Often, it is only after the Year of the Pig is over and as the years continue that you look back in hindsight and realise those challenges were in fact opportunities. Imagine if you knew that at the time, what a difference it would make and what could have happened, had you worked with, rather than fight the Pig. You don’t have to imagine, because this is a chance to start with an open mind, trusting where the Pig is leading you. This lunar year has a close link with the lunar nodes and in particular the North Node. This suggests a much easier experience this time around, with a sense of adventure in the air.
