Wood Pig Chinese Zodiac
According to the Chinese Zodiac, a person born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Pig is a very honest person. A Pig does not lie or deceive others, and only gives his or her word if he or she is sure he or she can keep it. Since Pigs are so trustworthy, they do not usually suspect treachery in others, which means that they can be vulnerable to being deceived themselves. Although the gentle and honest Pig does not deserve this, it will still happen occasionally. Pigs are well served by trying to be a little less trusting of others.
Most Pig people are hard workers. The Chinese Zodiac tells us that Pigs are devoted to causes once they have committed themselves, and hate to see work unfinished. Pigs do not let themselves be distracted by little things if it means that they will not accomplish their work on time.
Although a person born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Pig is hard working, he or she also loves to indulge in creature comforts. Pigs like comfortable clothes and plush linens. Their homes are comfortably and tastefully decorated, and they have a tendency to overspend on luxuries. Pigs also tend to be overeaters, so even though they have hardy constitutions, they may suffer from stomach upset.
Even though Pigs may overspend and need to watch their finances, they have good heads on their shoulders and do not usually make poor decisions. Someone born as a Pig according to the Chinese Zodiac usually has a talent for negotiation, and is likely to be the peacekeeper in his or her group of friends.
According to the Chinese horoscope, every fifth year of the Pig is a Wood Pig year. When the sign of the Pig is tempered by Wood, certain characteristics emerge and become dominant. Wood Pigs are very insistent. You may find yourself overwhelmed by their generosity. A Wood Pig will give of himself or herself until there is almost nothing left to give! As a result, those who are Wood Pigs according to the Chinese Zodiac should be careful to take time for themselves to rejuvenate, or they may find themselves burning out.
A Wood Pig is always ready to help a friend in need, and won’t take "no" for an answer-even if that friend really does not want the help! As you would expect, Pigs can be a bit pigheaded, so it may be easier to just stop protesting and accept a Pig’s help.
Wood Pigs are great at breaking down tasks into smaller chunks, and making plans to work steadily on a project until completion. Usually, this Chinese sign does not feel comfortable rushing around or leaving everything to the last minute, and thus prefers to work with a plan. If you need help tackling a complicated project, a Wood Pig is the one to help.
Wood Pigs are very practical, and do not spend a lot of time wishing and dreaming. They prefer to get right down to work without the preamble, and always make sure the job is done.
