Year of the Golden Earth Pig 2019

“get through the storm and bask in the sun on the beach”

On February 5, 2019, we say goodbye to the Year of the Earth Dog, and hello to the Year of the Golden Earth Pig! This is a special year as the Golden Pig only comes around every 60 years. It also marks the end of a complete rotation cycle of the 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac, and is a time to ‘clean out your closet’ (Maybe with the help of Netflix ‘tidying up’ show?).



One of my favorite forecast webpages is and here is what they have to say for the upcoming Year of the Golden Earth Pig 2019: “The Year of the Pig can be visualised as a journey to emerge from turbulent seas and make it to smooth golden shores. Once you have made it to land, sunshine and warmth are yours to enjoy. At the same time, a warehouse full of rice stands waiting for you to make your preparations for rainy days. This is a year with strong Water and weak Earth elements ruled by the Eight White Star, indicating that the year will be overflowing with wealth and opportunities but that the path is filled with challenges and unknowns. While you enjoy life, make sure you pay attention to your health.”


As one of the major focuses of this year is your health, please consider Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture to help you on your journey into 2020. With the concept behind Chinese Medicine being prevention, this is an excellent opportunity to use the Year of the Pig to bring you into the best health of your life. Gung hay fat choi
