The Pig's Personality: Diligent, Compassionate...  

Pigs are diligent, compassionate, and generous. They have great concentration: once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it. Though Pigs rarely seek help from others, they will not refuse to give others a hand. Pigs never suspect trickery, so they are easily fooled.  

General speaking, Pigs are relatively calm when facing trouble. No matter how difficult the problems Pigs encounter are, they can handle things properly and carefully. They have a great sense of responsibility to finish what they are engaged in.  

Wood, Fire, Earth, Gold, and Water Pigs  

In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. An Earth Pig comes once in a 60-year cycle. It is theorized that a person's characteristics are decided by their birth year's zodiac animal sign and element.  

Each year is also associated with one of five elements, and 2019 is an Earth Pig year.
