2019 is a Good Year to Have Babies, According to Chinese Astrology

If you’re expecting a child in 2019, there is no doubt you are already excited to meet him! But there’s one more reason to look forward to your baby’s arrival. According to Chinese astrology, 2019 is a good year for a new birth.

Babies born in 2019’s Year of the Pig are “robust, phlegmatic, and intelligent” (we had to look up “phlegmatic,” which means having an “unemotional and calm disposition”). It also says that their moms and dads will have a generally easy time getting them to obey as “the child Pig always listens to his parents because he has a deep love for those who gave birth to him.” 

This child will also grow up to be quite likeable, TheChineseZodiac.org notes. “The child born under the Pig Year is lucky, courageous, joyful, undemanding, nice, patient, resilient, a skillful organizer and has the ability to get under everyone’s skin with ease.”

The list of positive traits does not end there. Children born in the Year of the Pig are said to be intellectually gifted, too. “The Pig natives are inclined towards domains that develop their intelligence, they always want to know, to read and they have great chances to become genuine intellectuals when they grow up. They will always aim as high as possible, and most of the time they will succeed in their plans.” 

As a parent of a child born in this lunar year, know that he will need to be constantly reassured of your love for him. He is quite naive, and may be too trusting for his own good.

“The child Pig is someone who loves to eat, as his totem animal indicates,” but being full of energy, he may become interested in sports—so you can look forward to enjoying bonding moments with your child sampling your favorite food or engaging in fun, outdoor activities!

The list of Philippine celebrity moms and dads who were born in the Year of the Pig includes John Lloyd Cruz, Kristine Hermosa, Bianca Gonzalez, Precious Lara Quigaman, and Doug Kramer.

Famous celebrities’ kids born in the year of the Pig include Bimby Yap, Kris Aquino and James Yap’s son, and Santino Santiago, son of Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago.
