Gung Hay Fat Choy everyone! This year is the Year of the Earth Pig. In addition to this year, if you were born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, or 2007, the Pig is your sign.
If you were born in one of these years you’re said to be realistic, hard-working, a tad materialistic (who isn’t?), and you let yourself enjoy life. Pigs are famous for their sweet nature and diplomacy. They care deeply about friends and family, and do everything they can to help others.
If you’re looking for some extra luck the numbers 2, 5, & 8 may help, as well as the colors yellow, grey, and brown.
Other famous Pigs include: Julie Andrews, Stephen King, Emma Thompson, Alfred Hitchcock, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Stephen Spielberg, Jada Pinkett, Carlos Santana, Tracy Ullman, Billy Crystal, Lucille Ball, Dalai Lama, Ginger Rogers, and Elton John.
