- Chinese New Year -
2031 - The year of the Boar


2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947

Here is one of the zodiac’s most reliable sign that is intelligent, tolerant and sociable. Blessed with common sense and a taste for the aesthetics, boars are loyal and good-natured. Though a little old-fashioned, those born under the sign exhibit great fortitude, patience and endurance. Boars are also said to be lucky and will always find a bright star shining above them in their hour of need. They have a penchant for the finer things in life. Unfortunately, the boar’s hedonistic lifestyle may bulldoze over his sensible personality. They have big hearts but can become unnecessarily involved and mess things up instead. Their need for luxury makes them snobbish, stingy and conceited. Gullible and naïve, boars find it hard to understand the imperfections in their world.

Health: Pigs have a good health all through life. Frequent dinner parties and social activities are inevitable for pigs, so they should avoid excessive eating, drinking and smoking, which can cause sickness. In addition to adopting a balanced diet, proper exercise is badly needed for pigs to keep fit. As pigs have a free mind on everything, they rarely encounter stress trouble. Faced with overload work, they know how to relax themselves from tiredness. Sleep is a usual way for them to refresh themselves.

Career: Pigs enjoy great fortune in their careers. Their work and cause develop in a relative smooth way. When encountering trouble and difficulties, they tend to receive help from others. With a great sense of responsibility, they are not afraid to try to do what they are interested in. They have rich creativity and imagination. They can take up such careers as entertainer, caterer, doctor, veterinarian, or interior decorator. Besides, some promising careers include transportation, entertainment, retail or hospitality. In social relationships, they should build up their own interpersonal network to help them achieve career success.
Pigs patience and kindness make them do well in caring careers.

The Best Love Match:    

Rabbit, Sheep and Dragon

Words of Caution:    

Pigs need to keep out of the clutches of the Snake. The Snake's secretive and suspicious nature conflicts badly with the Pig's straightforward and genuine quality. The snake will make a complete slave out of the Pig to the extent that the poor Pig loses all power of strength.

The saying is: "This animal hides in your heart."

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

Some web sites say the year 2017 is the 4717th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the day that was used as the first day of the year was the winter solstice, which was around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st meant nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C., then year 2014 is the 4714th Chinese year
