The Zodiac

What sign are you?

And who shares it with you?


This is a year for setting out on your trotters. Go the whole hog to see what the world may offer the true pig; cast swine before pearls we say! There are good stars in your chart to help you bring home the bacon. To get out of a piggery, a pig must be clear about its intentions; don’t carry on like a pork chop, set that snout to the grindstone, invite others along, chew the fat, don’t be a boar, and turn the year your way.


The plumbing in the piggery may need a little care early in the year, particularly in May and August, apparently the left-over lard from 2016. Stay away from the freezer, lest you become a guinea pig for some new treatment. A little care and you should spend the year as a pig in clover.


Lie back, put those little piggy legs out and let the world come and scratch your belly. Pigs live a long time and this is the year to make plans for that future. Money comes rolling back to you wherever you spread your hay. No need to ham it up, oink, oink!


If pigs had wings they may just fly. But that’s not you. A year of considerable effort bacons. When busy stay busy, when not don’t let yourself pig out. Even when the road you’re on seems boaring, you’ll need to stay on it this year. Do so and the possibility of bringing all your plans to fruition rises.


Well, once upon a time there was an animal farm, and the pigs did rather well. Wonder where that farm may be today? Patience and perseverance, and it’s the early pig who gets the promotion - just make sure that’s not a sale of fresh pork at the supermarket.

Guiding hexagram from the Yi-Jing (Book of Changes)

The receptive brings about sublime success. If the superior man undertakes something and tries to lead, he goes astray; but if he follows, he finds guidance.

The earth’s condition is receptive devotion. Thus the superior man who has breadth of character carries the outer world.

Six in the fourth place means a tied-up sack. No blame, no praise.

A tied-up sack? Pigsy has trodden on Mafia toes again? What have you done? The ‘receptive’ is not a great sign, particularly if the dark side is involved here, unless of course you think the tied-up sack indicates a never-ending Christmas with all and sundry bringing you presents throughout the year.
