Chinese zodiac year ahead
The key to understanding 2019 lies in the natural element the year belongs to: Earth. As 2018 was the year of the Earth Dog, this new year will be the year of the Earth Pig, according to the Chinese zodiac.
What that means is that the new Chinese year will encapsulate the nature of the pig—sturdy, determined, generous—in a way that is more grounded than, for example, it would manifest in a Fire year.
The coming year, 2019, will see a steady increase in wealth and more room for growth than 2018.
Birth years of the Rat: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
Next year of the Rat: 2020
The year of the Rat follows the year of the Pig in 2020. In 2019, though, those who are the Chinese zodiac Rat will still fare quite well.
According to ChineseFortuneCalendar.com, the Rat and the Pig make successful partners in more ways than one.
They compliment and help each other in both business and social settings.
The Rat provides keen intellect whereas the Pig provides reliability and the ability to follow through with action.
Science may disagree, but astrologers believe that your zodiac sign can influence your condition.
Ox (or Buffalo)
Birth years of the Ox: 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
Next year of the Ox: 2021
The Ox and the Pig are actually quite similar: Both are sturdy and reliable.
The major difference between the two, however, is that the Ox can sometimes be a little too strong-willed or stubborn.
The year of the Pig will be a fortunate year for the Ox, so long as the Ox is able to keep its strength in check.
Consider all decisions carefully and you will be rewarded.
