In accordance with the thinking of ancient Chinese Astrology, people born in the Year of the Pig are highly emotionally charged. They are believed to acquire the playful, vivacious persona of this creature. When these people arrive in the Western astrological sign of Cancer too, they often gain lots of this lively spirit in their personalities. The Cancerian Pig's character is one of a mix of fun, sensitivity and passion, along with a giving, helpful nature. These people may appear to be rather louder in voice and style than most other Cancerians. They do not like to be ignored and so often develop many ways to attract attention.
The Cancerian Pig personality likes being around the presence of others more than anything else. They are generally not happy with just their own company and much prefer pair or group situations. They make friends really easily, and are usually attentive and loyal in all relationships they enter into. A Cancerian Pig is a trusting individual, so their sensitive, passionate personalities are easily hurt. If you betray their friendship or trust, they will sometimes find it extremely difficult to forgive you. These individuals put a lot into relationships, but expect a lot back from them. They are very family-oriented and will work hard to build secure futures.
To attract the attention of a Cancerian Pig, or make him or she relax, you have to appeal to the playful side of their natures. This evokes the Flirtatious, lively influence of the Pig, and the dreamy imaginative side of the Cancerian, and makes them feel at ease. Once they feel relaxed with others, these personalities will open up a little and their merry, expressive traits bubble to the surface. These people make lovely, attentive partners and parents who can always find time to talk and play. Their personality combination of playfulness and responsibility is ideal for nurturing and growing strong relationships.
The Cancerian Pig personality has a wonderful sense of humor that they find useful to help them through life. They are natural entertainers, but appear to maintain a strong sense of maturity and responsibility. These people do not like to be idle, and like to feel that they have a real purpose in life. They aim to get the most out of every day and seem to have a great skill of taking things in stride day by day. The Cancerian Pig possesses a sociable, kind-natured personality that rarely gets depressed and helps keep others spirits high. The Pig's influence keeps sensitivity in check and generally keeps their mood fairly balanced.
The highly charged emotional persona of the Cancerian Pig has lots of positive qualities, but does have a weakness. Their reactions emotionally are very quick, and this adds to and benefits their compassionate natures. However, these fast reactions are sometimes over-reactions to events. In these circumstances, the Cancerian Pig may display mood swings and become short-tempered and prone to be impulsive. They require partners who gently help them understand that they have over-reacted.
