The pig is often the trustworthiest, loving and caring of all the signs. While these are admirable traits, it often sets the pig up to be taken advantage of because of their sweet tempers and naiveté.

PIGS ARE: Obliging, Loyal Scrupulous, Indulgent, Truthful, Impartial, Intelligent, Sincere, Sociable, Thorough, Cultured, Sensual Decisive, Peaceable, Loving, Profound, Sensitive

BUT THEY CAN ALSO BE: Naive, Defenseless, Insecure, Sardonic, Epicurean, Noncompetitive, Willful, Gullible, Earth, Easy Prey


Considerate, long-suffering, and supremely honest, the unpretentious Pig makes a cheerful friend and sincere partner. This 12th and last sign of the zodiac is pragmatic and has an unquenchable thirst for new knowledge. They are often betrayed because of their faith in others, but are oftentimes rewarded with financial security due to their pure hearts. Companionship, physical love and emotional security are a must, and these souls need an easy-going mate who talks out problems instead of shouting. Gentle, yet strong of will, Pigs are motivated by their conscience. Resigned and accepting the world as it is, Pig souls do not push themselves ahead at the cost of another. Most harmonious time of day for the Pig is between 9:00pm – 11:00pm.

The female pig is patient, cheerful and outgoing who thrives on peace and quiet. While they make excellent teachers, designers and such, a career seldom wins out over family. The female pig is domestic by nature and often spoils her children.

The male pig is generous and sincere although he can be stubborn to a fault. While dependable he doesn’t allow his mate to take him for granted. An engaging host who enjoys cooking, the male pig is also an excellent father.
