(1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043)

You are a splendid companion -- an intellectual with a very strong need to set difficult goals and carry them out. You are sincere, tolerant and honest but by expecting the same from others you are incredibly naive. Your quest for material goods could be your downfall. The Pig would be best in the arts as an entertainer, or possibly a lawyer.
