How the Twelve Animal Archetypes Will Fare in the Year of the Fire PigRAT The Year of the Pig will be a more relaxed but sometimes frustrating year for Rat people. You love the fun aspect of this sign, but may feel like all you do is wait, wait, wait. Try to just let go and enjoy the calm, rejuvenating energy of the Pig - enjoy small dinner parties, family gatherings, and social events with close friends. This is a great year to focus on your personal 'inner circle', rather than try to stir things up at a wider, large gathering level. This is an incubation year for you - time to get your life in order, ready for the Rat Year in 2008. Get your life in order, tie up loose ends, clean out your closets and garage. Do a mental, emotional, and spiritual 'spring cleaning' as well - time to drop all the excess baggage and repressed resentments/hurts. If you spend time daily in spiritual evolvement activities, this Pig Year energy will serve you well. Time to grow from the inside! - |1900 |1912 |1924 |1936 |1948 |1960 |1972 |1984 | 1996 | 2008 | 2020 | 2032 |

The Pig Year will feel quite a bit lighter than last year did - you will enjoy the soft, homey sort of energy that the Pig brings. But the festive feasting aspects and tendency to extravagance may tend to rub you the wrong way at times. If you can learn to relax (yes, that means take some days off once in awhile!) this can be a very happy year for Ox people. The key here is the word RELAX - you are so used to putting your nose to the grindstone and plugging away. Time to learn to use the power of your mind, not just your hands and back, so to speak. Take time out for you, and notice how refreshed and more focused you become. This can be very powerful - you already know how to work hard: now it is time to align that ability with your intention and your visionary capacities to truly shape the life you desire for you and your loved ones.

|1918 |1930 |1942 |1954 |1966 |1978 |1990 | 2002 | 2014 | 2026 ||
The Year of the Fire Pig can be a time of frustration for the majestic Horse unless he or she can learn to modulate their natural desire to jump into things. You may feel constrained and misunderstood, but you also enjoy festivity and amicability. Now is the time to work on your relationships - strive to improve your ability to tune into others, without judging them. All too often, you jump to conclusions about others without taking the time to truly 'see' their souls or inner needs and motivations. This is not the time to bring sweeping changes into your life. It is the year to regenerate your inner self and find contentment at your own hearth. Put your powerful energy and gift for gab to work by making your home environment ship shape and tending to any long neglected repairs (not just materially, but emotionally as well). Work through and forgive past injustices, and cleanse your soul and heart of excess baggage that no longer serves you. Enjoy the celebratory energy of the Pig, but indulge yourself in moderation (hard to do, I know!). Horses love to absorb life and vitality through every pore, and absolutely hate to feel tethered. If you attend to your body, soul, mind and spirit in a balanced way, this can be a very insightful and self-satisfying year of inner growth for the likable Horse.

The Year of the Fire Pig can be a phenomenal year of growth and preparation for the fiesty, amicable Monkey. You may find the slow, dreamy energy of the Pig rather frustrating at times, but if you can approach each day in a philosophical way, this can be a very good Year for you. Life will feel a bit easier for you - the last couple of years have been a trial in many ways. But, if you take care of yourself, develop new inner growth activities (ones that both refresh and help you to evolve in spirit) the Pig Year can be a very important time of honing your being for action, beginning in full force next year. This is a year to grow in wisdom: if you can not control your tendency to be brusk and rebellious against responsibility and commitments, this can be a very upsetting time for both you and your loved ones. Learn to enjoy the security, comradry. and opportunities for emotional and spiritual development that the Pig year brings - best not to dwell on the weight of responsibility that relationships bring. Relax and enjoy them, knowing that every relationship in your life exists for a reason. This is not the time to break free and look for something/someone new.
| ROOSTER - |1909 |1921 |1933 |1945 |1957 |1969 |1981 |1993 | 2005 | 2017 | 2029 ||
The Pig Year can be a great year for the confident Rooster if he or she can learn to relax and just go with the energy. Roosters like immediate results and often make spontaneous decisions. In the Pig Year, it is best if you can learn to "sleep on it" before making any major decisions, and to enjoy the actual process of preparation and planning, rather than only focusing on the outcome. Roosters love the festive air of the Pig energy, and are glad to join the party. This is a great time to drink in the ambience, share in amicable gatherings, and to learn to appreciate the brilliance and strengths in others. Drop any impatience, and just revel in the moment, drinking in its richness and the strengthening gift of experience. Now is an excellent time to engage in self-development activities on all levels, and to rid yourself of excess mental, emotional, and spiritual baggage. Think before you speak - don't let your words hurt others, unless it is in the defense of the less outspoken people around you.
