Contrary to its rather negative reputation in the West, the Pig of Chinese Astrology may be
the most generous and honorable Sign of the Zodiac. Pigs are nice
to a fault and possess impeccable manners and taste. They have so much of the perfectionist in them that others may
be inclined to perceive them as snobs, but this is a misconception. Pigs are simply possessed of a truly luxurious
nature, one that delights in finery and riches (in surroundings, food, lovemaking and otherwise). This Sign believes in the
best qualities of mankind and certainly doesn't consider itself to be superior. Pigs also care a great deal about friends
and family and work hard to keep everyone in their life happy. Helping others is a true pleasure for the Pig, who feels best
when everyone else is smiling.
A Pig with no one around to appreciate its giving nature is a sad sight. Pigs
are so magnanimous they can appear almost saintly; this can lead some less-than-well-intentioned souls to stomp all over this
Sign, and the bad news is, the Pig will take the blows! Pigs make great companions in part because of their
refusal to see the more negative or base qualities in a partner, but that rose-colored view can lead to this Sign's allowing
itself to be taken advantage of. Contrary to their seemingly benign dispositions, however, Pigs can
be quite venomous in response to being crossed by a lover, friend or business partner.
Pigs are highly intelligent creatures, forever studying, playing and probing in their quest
for greater knowledge. They can be misinterpreted as being lazy, however, due to their love of reveling in the good stuff;
this Sign could happily spend hours on end making love, napping, taking a long bubble bath or dallying over an incredible
spread of rich foods. Pigs tend to make wonderful life partners due to their hearts of gold and their love of family. Even
so, Pigs can be rather exclusive, choosing to spend time with those who will appreciate them most and ignore the rest of the
populace. Pigs would do well to realize that there's more to life than being needed. When they open up their world to a diverse
group of people, they will truly bloom.
