While western astrologists observe the new year on January 1st, Chinese astrologists celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 5, 2019. This year is the Year of the Pig, which is associated with wealth.
Your birth year determines your Chinese Zodiac sign, which is an animal. The animals represent a 12-year cycle that are approximately the same cycle as Jupiter’s rotation orbital period, according to Dr. J. Zai, author of Taoism and Science: Cosmology, Evolution, Morality, Health and more.
While not everyone has a Pig as their sign, we might be able to anticipate how 2019’s Year of the Pig affects your Chinese Zodiac sign –– especially concerning your piggy bank.
