General Characteristics of a Pig

The Pig is the darling of the zodiac. He is much loved for his honest, kind and forgiving nature. Not one for confrontation, the Pig believes in harmony and maintaining the peace. He is the ideal idealist and dislikes anything which causes conflict or division, such as schism. A lover, not a fighter, the Pig will do anything to keep the peace. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone more helpful or giving than a Pig.

A connoisseur of fine things, the Pig also enjoys the finer things in life. He’s in his element when he’s out having a good meal, drinking great wine, surrounded by a large group of friends. His self-indulgence could very well be his biggest weakness. Fortunately for the Pig, he finds it easy to attract wealth so he can upkeep himself and his family to the standard that they have become accustomed to.

Generous, sincere and warm, the Pig is well-liked wherever he goes. His friendship is also treasured because people know that the Pig will always be completely honest in his opinions and feedback.

 

 

Strengths

Those born in the year of the Pig are among the most amenable signs. One of the best qualities about the Pig is his loyalty. He remains committed for life to his friends and his principles, and would never do anything dishonest.

Pigs can be practical, logical and down to earth. This may make people think that they are cool and reserved, and even a touch arrogant, because they don’t usually show emotion openly. However, despite whatever callousness they may display in their actions, their hardiness is also a great strength – they are very rarely offended and will single-mindedly, steadily push their way forward to achieve what they need to.

Unlike the traditional views of Pigs that they are lazy, those born under the sign of the Pig are very hardworking. The resilient, strong Pig works hard and often plays harder.

 

Weaknesses

The Pig’s generosity of heart and wallet is often taken advantage of. It is so easy to exploit him because he simply doesn’t have a suspicious bone in his body. This gullible and naïve nature makes him all the more endearing though and his friends will loyally try to protect him the best they can.

However, the Pig can be stubborn and loyal to the wrong people. His eternal optimism and belief in the good of people will likely bring his downfall. Even after his trust has been proven to be mistaken, he will often not admit that his judgment of character was wrong and risk getting conned again! One of the Pig’s main problems is his soft heart which can make him become a doormat. He is always obliging and finds it next to impossible to say “no”.

The Pig can be complacent and not open to change. These Pigs prefer to stick to a known routine, preferably one that isn’t too active, demand too much of him or require for him to give up the little luxuries of life.

 

Career and Working Life

Job opportunities and money will seem like they drop from the sky for the fortunate Pig. He is suited for a broad range of careers and may gravitate to those sectors which appeal to his love for luxury. The Pig may enjoy work in hospitality industries, or with specialist wines, gourmet restaurants, antiques, arts etc. However, although he likes these extravagances, he is a hard worker and will do what is required to do his job well.

In contrast to the self-indulgent opulence the Pig enjoys, the Pig is also very generous at heart and is attracted to social or charity work. He works best when the work is done for others or when he has the opportunity to help someone better their life. With his social and attractive qualities, he is excellent at fund-raising. The altruistic Pig strongly advocates humanitarian causes as he is most happy to be of service.

He works well with people thus is great as part of a team. Somehow, people will always help the Pig, so that he will be able to achieve whatever he wishes for.

 

Love and Relationships

 

Pigs are loving and faithful to their partners, and caring and considerate towards those they love. Whether it is romance or familial, the Pig treasures real friendship most of all.

The Pig, both male and female, will have no lack of suitors even though the male Pig is particularly relaxed about chasing conquests. If the ladies wish to step up the pace, they will need to pursue him and make the first move instead!

In love, as in other relationships, the Pigs are also naïve and can often succumb to the wrong person. His easy-going nature could very well mean that he is taken advantage of, even by the people closest to him. However, if the Pig meets the right one, he will adore his partner and pull out all stops to pamper her.

 

Finances

The Pig has no problems dealing with any matters related to finance or business. He is able to plan for his own future as well as bear all necessary financial responsibilities, especially for his family or his own business. Security and material success comes easily to the Pig for he is diligent and driven, and he avoids disharmony and stays clear of conflicts.

The Pig has to be careful of his indulgences though. If he is not good at managing his finances and chooses luxury buys over realistic budgets, the Pig may lose all his money quite quickly.

 

Social Life

Cheerful, caring and warm, the Pig makes friends easily and his friendships last for a long time. He is dependable and always sought for help because you can always count on him. Not only is he willing to give you the shirt off his back if you’re in trouble, he is always accommodating to friends who need his help.

He is also very forgiving and prefers not to be confrontational. He would rather give in to keep the peace than rock the boat, even if it means he doesn’t get what is due to him. He has a good sense of humour, enjoys entertaining and pleasing others, which again makes him a popular character amongst others.

 

Life Lessons

 

The Pig needs to learn to trust the right people who can help to look after his interests. He also needs to stand up for himself and say “No” to protect his own interests. It’s not that the Pig agrees because he doesn’t want to look bad. The Pig genuinely wants to help but more often than not, he is not able to. If he could restrain his enthusiasm to a more realistic and practical level, then he will end up not disappointing others.

The Pig also has to watch his propensity for comfort and luxury. If his desire for comfort overwhelms him, people will start to see him in a different light and friends may drift away. He needs to know when to put on the brakes when he is on a self-indulgent spree, otherwise he can finish his resources quickly. Despite his luck with money, if he’s not careful, the luck (and money) will run out.

 

 

COMPATIBILITY

Who will the Pig roll in the mud with?

The Pig is a good ally with the Rabbit and the Sheep. These three have a gentle, caring and sympathetic energy which complement each other. The Sheep and Pig are delightfully mellow together and support each other equally. The Sheep is the slightly more assertive of the two and will protect and guide the naïve Pig to safe pastures; while the cheerful Pig will uplift the worrisome, bleating Sheep.

The best out of both worlds are achieved with the Rabbit and Pig combination. The Rabbit has the smarts out of these two and is happy to orchestrate beneficial situations from the background while the Pig is happy to be upfront.

The Pig is also good mates with the Rat, appreciating the Rat’s instinctive awareness and self-sustaining survival skills. Other animals the Pig gets on with are the Tiger and the Dragon, both dynamic personalities who will bring the best out of the Pig. Roosters and Pigs get on quite well as neither gets offended by the other and are both have happy, lively dispositions.

 

Who will the Pig oink at?

 

The Snake is the biggest enemy of the Pig. It is said that the Pig is no match for the powerful Snake who will just chew him up and spit him out without a second thought. If they have to work together, it is best to use trustworthy friends to mediate between them.

The Pig also may clash with the Monkey because of differences in attitude. The Monkey’s principles, or rather the lack of them, may appall the straightforward Pig. Likewise, the Pig’s fondness for self-indulgence will turn off the astute, shrewd Monkey.

 

How to work with a Pig

You can use the Pig’s attachments to make him do what you want. Give him the right incentives that you know he wants and he will follow your lead. While he can work very hard, you must also know how to pace the Pig and allow him time to play. Appease his want for pleasurable things. If you need to work with him, meetings would probably be best held over a sumptuous dinner; or get on his good side with a pretty little gift.

Look after the Pig and make sure he is protected from people who will take advantage of him. If you ensure his wellbeing, you can be sure that the Pig will reward you amply with an honest, loyal and straightforward friendship that is hard to come by.

    One of my sons’ horoscope is pig. What is mentioned above could be some way or another accurate of his character. However, I strongly believe that whatever qualities that are not positive can be corrected by learning and practising the holy Dharma.

    The Pig’s characteristics are interesting and like other animal signs it has its strengths and weaknesses. It is good knowledge to read and understand the general characteristics of all the animal signs and it will be a good topic for starting a conversation with new acquaintances.

  4. JP on Jun 21, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    Wow! This is so accurate! I’ve never come across any horoscope as accurate as this!!! I’m a piggie too. I can relate to what’s written. It’s wonderful to read this as it is a genereal guide to help me communicate with others more effectively.

    Communication is very important, I feel. It is our responsibility, out of compassion, to communicate effectively. Many problems arise from poor communication and in some cases, no communication.

    Your Holiness, just finished the first reading of Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale, just a brilliant title like the clarity and
    the outstanding exposition of your classes and text. Now its my everyday sadhana – the TsonKhapa Guru Yoga, and will remain over my
    bed and living room. I have LOTS of things to say, and maybe they are ALL useless, if not senseless. I think I have already told you I ‘met tibetan Dharma’ through Lama Gangchen in Rio de Janeiro.
    Not wanting or knowing how to ‘proceed alone’ – as ever, or before,-
    I tried to follow the Gangcheanettes from ‘Pax Drala’ Dharma Center, Rio, the nearest then. Oh waw! Gangchen styled an english lesbian girl as Lama Carolinne (Caroline Gammon), and what this Lama taught or the girls from Pax Drala understood…she taught, ALL under Shakyamunis incomparable Dharma name…., was REALLY hard to chew.
    I tryied for almost 5 years to follow, but then understood they just wanted girl friends, the younger the better, and all else
    was just supposed to diverse ‘the uninitiated’. Comparing what I lived under those crazy loose bitches, and your instructions and problems for Dharma Centers in Asia, let me tell you, Asia is a neat decent place, that with ‘few adjustments’ can easily do the ‘job’ of
    lightening our somber pit of a planet.
    Cannot thank you enough! Long live Kechara House!
    Sicerely from Brazil.

    Pujas are definitely powerful and can alleviate dangers and harm immediately to counter the problem and disturbances that is currently arising. It also means that we create demerits and negative karma for ourselves which will deter the enlightened being to help us when we are in need.
    Puja is needed to clear our negative karma and collect merits as well.The instructions given by oracle when take trance is a guideline for us to achieve our goals.Thank you so much for the good article

    Namche Bazaar a traditional Sherpa village is a beautifully crafted Himalayan town which is nestled along the crescent shaped hill slopes. It is truly a place worth visiting by many trekkers who are on the verge of making their journey deep into the gorgeous Khumbu region. It is also the staging point for expeditions to Everest and other Himalayan peaks in the area. Namche Bazaar is one of the main stops on the trail up to Everest Base Camp for trekkers from all over the world. Here trekkers or visitors will get to enjoy the clearest views of the beautiful mountainous landscape of Himalaya. A beautiful place with natural surroundings will be good to visit. Wish to some day.

    Beautiful architectural and unique structures of sixty-four Yogini Temple of Hirapur, India. It is the smallest temple among the list of four major surviving 64 Yogini temples in India. The temple is beautifully well preserved, quite remarkable given the fact that this shrine is only one of a handful traditional form of Yogini temples in India that still exist. This Hirapur shrine is indeed very unique in many ways. Wish I could visit this amazing someday.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this wonderful sharing of the sixty-four yoginis of these temples are believed to be none other than celestial dakinis in reality .

    According to Buddhism, the world in which we live and all that happens to us is a result of our past actions. Past harmful actions create unhappiness results and skilful actions create happy results. One way to purify obstacles we experience due to our past harmful action is through prayers and pujas. The power of prayers derives from the sincere motivation of the person asking for prayers, as well as the pure mind of the persons performing the prayers. It is said that prayers performed by lamas are especially powerful and effective as they are done on the basis of pure morality. There are many types of pujas which can be performed for various purposes for the dying, for the deceased and for sickness. All depending on one request and recording to one’s needs with specific problems . Removing these obstacles will help us to achieve happiness and good fortune in all our activities. We are so fortunate to learn, practice some of the pujas at Kechara Forest Retreat. Many people have truly benefited from these pujas done when with concentration and faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this extensive article pujas which I have better knowledge of other pujas other that what I knew.

    Born into a noble family the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje was spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He was well respected and consulted by high lamas of other lineages. He was given many names expressing this respect, including “King of the Yogis”. Interesting short life history of a great lama.
    Lama Jigme Rinpoche an accomplished teacher of the Kagyu lineage has once said….
    “Although the 16th Karmapa appeared and acted as a human being, his mind was completely open, without any limitation. He knew everything in an instant and without having to think about it.”
    Depicted in this beautiful thangka with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. He took the form of a Dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
