Pig Characteristics

The person born into the Year of the Pig is noble and chivalrous, honest and helpful. They are someone you will definitely appreciate by your side when you are in a pickle! Do you have a problem? The pig is happy to try to help you solve it. They will also forgive you if you do them wrong - but only up to a certain point, so don't abuse their trust. A pig doesn't like to get into an argument, but he or she can have a quick temper.
