Today is a Wood Pig day in the Chinese calendar and a Tail day in the 28 lunar mansions, so how can it be anything other than a Pig Tail day? One of the outstanding talents of a Wood Pig is an ability to thrive in a competitive environment and the Chinese almanac duly suggests opening a business, trading or taking a course today.
Other favourable activities include meditation or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, travelling, buying or making clothes, emigrating, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof and hunting as potentially the most successful activities.
Meanwhile in the Twelve Palaces it’s a Fullness day, marking the first of a three day event in which it’s excellent to organise events, go on long journeys or move house. Wedding receptions, fetes, galas and fairs are all bound to be successful today. One should avoid anything to do with gardening or agriculture though.
We will return tomorrow on a Fire Rat day which will herald the start of new power cycle. Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW.

And this little piggy went to school?
It is an auspicious Yin Wood Pig day which aligns with the monthly Sheep to make a strong wood element influence. This wood qi signifies expansion, networking and strategy and these aspects feature prominently in today's Chinese almanac recommendations. They include taking a course, visiting friends, setting your goals, having an astrology reading, moving home, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, having a haircut, buying or setting direction for your bed or oven and hunting. It advises against marriage or burial duties.
A Wood Pig when viewed in isolation can be the strongest but not necessarily the most confident of the five types in Chinese astrology. They are also extremely resourceful when they need to be. To see how you own sign fares under its influence see our dedicated Wood Pig web page.
Mercury will begin its retrograde tomorrow and we will return on Tuesday. Wood Pig daily Chinese horoscope posted 13th July 2012
A Truffle hunters treasure; worth more than its weight in gold!
Gasses, scents and aromas are associated with the wood element and an excellent sense of smell is just one of the attributes of today's Wood Pig. Generally, Pigs love woodland, especially sniffing around tree roots, and those able to find “black gold” or truffles that sell for thousands of dollars an ounce are literally worth more than their weight in gold.
A Wood Pig as part of your personal horoscope can imbue you with a fine sense of smell too and you could carve a career in catering, chemistry or perfume making. It may also explain an ability to find bargains in the most unlikely of places, like the person who found and sold a 3.3 pound truffle for more than $200,000 in 2007. You can discover your personal signs with our free Chinese horoscope and see whether woodland walks may be worth taking a shovel!
In the wider sense, a Wood Pig day may hold unexpected treasures for all and the Chinese almanac suggests taking a course, travelling and visiting friends.

A Pig day in a Rabbit month is always auspicious as both signs are part of the same Chinese astrology group. Consequently, the Chinese almanac is smiling and states that it is especially lucky for Rat signs. We will return tomorrow on a Fire Rat day; the start of a new action cycle.

"If That Don't Beat a Pig-a-Pecking."
Today's title is a way of saying that something is amazing and I thought I would use it to brighten up an otherwise gloomy day. Although, the picture seems to refer to Pig packing instead of pecking.
It’s a Wood Pig day in a Pig month and as they are aligned with the annual Rabbit sign, it should be amazing. However, apart from quiet meditation, travelling and house building, it is pretty unremarkable, so says the Chinese almanac.
Mind you, it also states it’s a good day for pampering, so be amazing to yourself and treat yourself in some way. Otherwise two Pigs together in a horoscope are seen as a “punishment” affecting self-esteem. So, do the unexpected!
To see how your own sign is personally affected see our dedicated Wood Pig web page and we will return tomorrow, which is an amazing Fire Rat day.
Until then, enjoy NOW! - Wood Pig daily horoscope posted 16th November 2011
Piggyback on annual union day
It is a Wood Pig day and is very special time, as it unites the day with the month and year in the wood trine of Pig, Sheep and Rabbit. This makes it a memorable day in one way or another, and you will need to see our attribute cycle to see how the wood element affects your horoscope. Generally, when out of balance, wood can bring either great kindness or anger, so make sure you are kind to all today and you will not suffer. It is also good for strategy and planning.
To help you decide what to do today, the Chinese almanac recommends taking a course, visiting friends, having a haircut, travelling, especially by train, moving home, buying or making clothes, refurbishing home or office, moving earth, building pillars, fixing a roof, making wine or fermenting, buying or setting direction for your bed or oven and hunting as suitable activities.
Today’s Wood Pig is extremely well supported, as the Pig part supports the Wood bit, which we have described as a “piggyback” arrangement. - Wood Pig daily horoscope posted 19th July 2011
Saving the bacon at month break
Today’s Wood Pig clashes with this month’s Snake sign and this month break can cause a lot of frustration and anxiety for the Pig. Luckily, the wood element balances this confrontation and is already present as the Heavenly Stem, meaning that all should end well. However, if you were born under the pig sign and you seem to be suffering adversely; then wearing green or light blue colours, eating sour tastes, being kind, instead of angry and planning your day will improve your outlook and “save your bacon*.
If Wood Pig is in your day pillar horoscope then you have great depth of character and exude an air of confidence. You are devoted to others and enjoy great self-expression and creativity. Being both sensitive and sensuous you can attract a network of friends and helpers. These add to your resources and help you enjoy the comforts of life in which you can become quite prosperous famous Wood Pigs include Bryan Adams, Leonardo DiCaprio, Calista Flockhart, Robin Givens, Alexander Godunov, Bruce Hornsby, Scarlett Johansson, Dolph Lundgren, Nelly, Bonnie Raitt, Condoleezza Rice and Garry Shandling,
Being a month break the Chinese almanac suggests breaking things down and refurbishing as the only suitable activity today.
The weekend is much better and we will return on Monday until then – enjoy now.
