This year is not so favorable for the Pig people and they may face challenges in many aspects. It is hard for them to find soulmates this year. However, try to keep a positive attitude and broaden your social circle.

Your career is likely to turn a little better; but the financial status may not. As for health, you will not suffer serious problems, but you'd better do exercises to improve the immunity.
