2019 Forecast According to Chinese Metaphysics

What to expect in this Chinese New Year of the Ji Hai (Earth Pig).
Year of the Ji Hai or Earth Pig

By Anita Rosenberg

2019 will be a year to rejuvenate and replenish because the earth-water combo make it rather sluggish and slow-paced. That is not to say you can’t make progress and take big leaps, but best use of this energy is to reflect and make plans for the future.

The Hai Pig is at the end of the 12 animal sign cycle, making this a time to review previous years, tie up loose ends and get ready for a new cycle starting 2020. Best advice for everyone is to nurture and build relationships to move forward and accomplish your goals—new friendships, a like-minded tribe, and if not already in a romantic relationship, this is a good time to attract someone in your life. 

The industries that will flourish include health and wellness platforms, metaphysics both Eastern and Western, social media, marketing and entertainment. 2019 is the year to put yourself out there, take action and spread your message.

Animal Signs in a BaZi Chinese Astrology chart share a snapshot of how the year will personally play out so you can make smart choices to maximize those energies. Based on birth dates and time, everyone may have up to four different animal signs. The information below represents the year you were born as well as the month. This gives you at least two animal sign predictions (you need a full chart to predict the hour and day pillars).

Showcase your talents and climb the career ladder of success in 2019. Helpful people will be available to you, but you must have a goal for them to help you with.
