It is currently the year of the Boar.
Today is July 17, 2019 and that means it is the year of the Boar.
The Boar stands for wealth, family and prosperity, happiness and good luck. Boars are considered `jewels'' of the Chinese Horoscope as they are honest, upright and thus very popular.
A Boar is open, straight forward, and simple. They do not know how to be devious or underhanded but are frank, honest and trustworthy. They take initiative, are diligent, calm, understanding and gallant.
A Boar is tolerant and avoids disputes. They are peace-loving, enjoy the good things in life but are not over-indulgent.
Unfortunately, due to the trusting nature of the Boar, they are easily swindled. They are willful and obstinate, often makes mistakes and have poor arguments. Materialistic but self-sacrificing.
