2019 Year of the Pig

Marnie Cate Pig

Tuesday 5th February 2019 is the Chinese New Year. This year we roll into the Year of the Pig - she is feminine, spiritual, an earth element and will allow us more breathing space. Phew.

This Pig year will bring beautiful energy to everyone. There is a great feeling of love with this year, and it flows into all areas of our lives. For instance; this isn't just a year to find romantic love (although that's entirely possible!), it's also a year to fall in love with:

  • yourself!
  • your health
  • your career (new or existing)
  • your baby or child and see them in a new light
  • discovering your passion
  • a new home
  • a new location (holiday or move)

and pretty much anything that you can think of. The Pig acts as a kind of cupid towards anything you focus on in 2019.

Now bearing that in mind, if you're resistant to opening your heart, then this can be challenging for you. It'll require you letting down your guard, admitting to yourself that you love something or someone, showing that vulnerability. For those of you that find it hard to trust or give over a part of yourself, remember that the pig will encourage it out of you. Go with the flow as much as you can and the year will reward you.

This Year of the Pig brings energy to all things financial - good energy! Isn't that lovely to hear? Pigs love having money, they attract is successfully and they also love to spend it too. 

Remember: the first half of this year will see money trickling or flowing outwards from you. Be aware that you must keep tight to your budget and be mindful of where your dollars are going. This pressure will ease across the middle of the year and start to flow inwards better in the second half of the year. If you've been careful in this first 6 months, then the next 6 months will be enjoyable. If not - then you've been warned! You may spend more than just money and time trying to regain your footing (on a financial and a well-being front) in the last half of this year.

Investments are also favourable this year although it's cautious to say they will be successful if you trust your intuition. This is a Yin year after all, so listening to your soulful side will be imperative when it comes to investing and building wealth.

Business, entrepreneurship and career are powerful in the year of the Pig too. If you work for yourself, or even if you work for someone else, and are keen to put in energy and time this year, it will bade well for you. Remember to trust your intuition, go within, listen to what your higher self (soul) is saying and believe. This is a great year to make progress in the work side of your life.

Rest and play will play a big part in finding balance this year. Pigs especially (enjoying their own year) will need to create that balance! If your nature is to give out and think of everyone else first, then you'll be challenged in finding time for yourself. Make a concerted effort! It will pay off in the last couple of months of the year.

Procrastination may be your enemy this year too. Keep up your affirmations and motivation will come.

As with everything in life, there will still be challenges and emotional times. Pig will bring softer energy and allow you to breathe through it all.

Ultimately, the Year of the Pig will bring awareness of YOU as a deeper human being. Embrace it! It's time to recognise who you are and what you're capable of. Wishing you a beautiful year x
