Happy new year. It is the year of the pig starting today. I personally think pigs are very cute. They may be cuddly but have never had a chance to cuddle one so I do not know about their cuddle factor. There are many who have had pigs as pets and they swear they are awesome. I think after the movie “Babe” they may have become even more popular. I just absolutely adored that film and it brought me great joy at the end. In general pigs are portrayed as either dirty or very happy creature or both.
In some zodiac reviews, it is noted that the pig is a lover of life, pursuer of carefree fun, and a traveller at his or her core. I take great comfort in that, as my word of the year is joy and travelling generally brings me great joy. Thus, this being the year of the pig may be a sign of great trips to come. I am obsessed with and determined to go to Iceland. Hopefully, by May of this year. Now that I am back east I must make that journey. Even JetBlue flies directly to Reykjavik. I have no excuses, really.
Noe, according to the Chinese Zodiac I am a rat as is my son. As such, as a rat in a pig year, I supposedly am advised to savor the things in my life, big and small. Yes! I intend to find joy all around me. Another site noted that as a rat, I will sleep well this year, and positive energies will abound in me. I am loving this.
