The Western sun sign of Aries personality is generally known as being a little headstrong with a strong streak of independence. If the person is also born in the Chinese astrological Year of the Pig, this abrupt directness is thought to be softened quite significantly. An Aries Pig's persona is still full of optimistic enthusiasm, but it is a lot more easygoing and laid back. This nonchalant attitude makes the Aries Pig individual more flexible and less demanding of others than a typical Aries. They have sunny, affectionate dispositions and a great sense of humor, with an evenly balanced and well-controlled sensitivity.
Although the Aries Pig person is very happy-go-lucky, this is not in a totally carefree or haphazard way. They do know how to take things seriously in their responsibilities and during appropriate circumstances. These Aries find it easy to change from silly to sensible immensely quickly. They look at life optimistically and can more often than not see the humorous side to most things. An Aries Pig has an equalized mix of sensitive emotions, and amiable and versatile characteristics. They tend to be capable of associating well with anyone and are particularly apt at encouraging people to come out of their shell.
In a work situation, the Aries Pig personality is well placed to be in some sort of managerial role. They are usually good motivators and directors of others, and will be fair and lenient, but not overly so. These personalities have a methodical approach to tasks and routines, and easily grasp new methods and ideas. When not working, the Aries Pig loves to burn off excess energy and built up stress levels by exercising or playing sports. To relax, these people often enjoy dining out, weekends away, or socializing with friends or family. They are not particularly ambitious, but they do like money and spending it, even being quite extravagant if finances allow. They are sometimes accused of being shopaholics.
The contented, agreeable Aries Pig easily falls in love, and can be rather flirtatious in their mannerisms. These personalities are often extremely romantic, and find the whole idea of falling in love and romance intriguing and fun. Partners will be swept off their feet by the ardor of the Aries Pig as a soulmate. They will put a lot into personal relationships, and will be appreciative and considerate of their lover. As they are fairly organized and believe in equality, you will rarely have to remind them to do their fair share of household chores. These individuals are usually happiest within one-on-one relationships.
An inclination to occasionally be a little careless and aloof are the main weaknesses of the Aries Pig personality. You will not see these character traits very frequently, but they can surface when these people are over-tired, worried about something, or stressed out. Their usual jolly, lighthearted aura will be replaced by the negative side of their nonchalant personality. This uninterested and sloppy attitude is always an indication that the Aries Pig is unhappy.
