Astrological year affects our character and shapes a part of our personality. The astrological year a person is born at gives some glues about who you or someone’s else is. Astrological year won’t begin on January 1 when the number of the year changes. It changes in a different time every year and it’s usually in January or February. There are 12 astrological years, like there are zodiac signs, which should be paid attention to when defining the character of a person in astrology.

The year of the pig is 12th in the astrological calender, that is, it is the last year and the new round will begin after that. People born in the pig year have certain similar character traits that will combine with everyone’s sign (or with zodiac cusp), birth day, Moon phase during the birth and many other indicators. Every person born in the year of the pig is naturally special and one of a kind, but there are certain joint traits that affect the whole personality of the person.

Person born in the year of the pig by his nature is very active, optimistic, kind and free.

Activeness, the need to do something, to be in a certain type of action, to use his spiritual or physical energy is what adds to the character of that person. The last one depends on which type of a person he is. When other astrological and numerological indicators support good analytical skills, then this person will certainly need more spiritual activity. You need to be in action and this is a fact.

A person born in the pig year is generally optimistic. When there happens to be less stress, then optimism exists in this person’s life independently. Glass is more half full than half empty. For him, it’s no problem to share. To share some kind of information he knows, to give his things to someone who needs them more. It’s also no problem to help with his advice and strength when it’s needed. Kindness comes from the year of the pig, but other character traits, of course, support this too.

His emotional and physical freedom is very important to him. Limitations afflict him and the wish to run away from restrictions starts to follow him in his mind. The more people by his side allow him to be who he is, the longer he sticks by them. Freedom needs to exist in every aspect of life – the freedom to be independent contractor, the freedom to move around when wished and the freedom to speak about what the soul wants to speak about.
