The Chinese Year of the Pig is thought to be a very fortunate time to be born in astrological terms. This creature’s influence is believed to bring lots of luck and conviviality to any personality. In Western Astrology Taurus is signified by the Bull, and considered a steady and self-assured personality. The fun-loving and lucky spirit from the Pig creates Taurus Pigs that are highly convivial, and the Bull's presence adds calm and composure. This results in the well-balanced, sensible, but fun personalities of Taurus Pigs. They often have charming, friendly characters that tend to naturally and instantly put others at their ease.
A Taurus Pig is quite sociable for a Taurus, and usually has good communication skills. They like to talk and sometimes use verbal displays of expression more effectively than using body language. When a Taurus Pig says something, they will choose their words carefully in order to achieve the desired response. They often learn this ability from a young age, and tend to utilize it frequently when conversing with others. These individuals like to get their own way, but will use words rather than actions to try and get it. They are sometimes viewed as lazy in their mannerisms, but this is because they can often accomplish more by speaking than doing.
The genial personality of a Taurus Pig frequently allows them to easily blend into most jobs and get along with almost everyone. They have a methodical and responsible approach to work, but like to make it enjoyable and humorous if they can to alleviate any monotony. The Taurus Pig is not particularly motivated by money, but their natural good fortune usually ensures they have enough. They will try to save for special things and luxuries, but find it difficult to not keep dipping into their savings.
The Taurus Pig appears to find personal relationships easy to establish and nurture. Their rather lovable personalities make wonderful partners who can give you the right balance of affection and attention. A Taurus Pig is incredibly sensual, romantic and passionate all rolled into one. There are not many partners that will be as attentive and fun to be with. In soulmate relationships, they will be as emotionally open and considerate as they possibly can be. They will be thoughtful on birthdays and anniversaries, and usually give something that is meaningful to the relationship.
Taurus is one of the most stubborn personalities in the zodiac, and a Taurus Pig is especially prone to it. This is the main weakness in their jovial characters, and it can bring them a few problems. They have a tendency to be a bit too obstinate at the wrong times, and can often end up losing out on things. This weakness varies between each individual Taurus Pig and is occasionally initialized when they feel they are being unfairly treated, or are adamant that they are right about something. They will make a fuss, dig their heels in, and may refuse to even think about a compromise.
