Part 2: Energy of the Earth Pig Year of 2019!
Welcome to Body Space Alignment Newsletter!
This is the second part of a three part series newsletter to prepare you for the year ahead. Yesterday I pointed out 8 Things You Can Do to Prepare for the Changes That Are Coming. This newsletter discusses the energy of the Earth Pig, while my final segment will review points of interest in your environment for 2019.
Let's get right to it!
Elevate Your Consciousness!
2019 is the Year of the Earth Pig!
The 2019 Chinese Lunar New Year begins on February 5th. It is the 4717 Chinese year and the zodiac sign of the Pig. The Solar New Year begins on February 4, 2019. The difference between these two dates is based on the following:
The lunar start of the year must start on the 11th lunar month and is based on a new moon during this period. This is the time of the year when the moon starts a whole new cycle. It can fall either in January or February.
The solar start of the year is when the Sun is at 315 degrees exactly. It usually falls on the 4th of February, but can be on the 3rd or 5th. This is the beginning of the new solar cycle for a year and for the Chinese the beginning of the Spring season. Essentially, it marks the mid-point between the winter solstice and vernal equinox.
Yin Earth Stem is Strong First Half of 2019:
The Earth element with a yin polarity, which is the element of the Chinese year 2019, carries positive energies throughout the year. It is synonymous with organization, nourishment, stability and being available to others. The element of earth aligns to the root chakra and therefore keeps us feeling grounded and connected to humanity. This provides a sense of security and strong foundation to reach out to others with confidence, especially since we feel our needs are being met. We may even feel overly confident to spend more easily and this can create a backlash especially towards the end of the year.
Areas of teaching, philanthropy and spirituality are particularly important throughout the year. Cultivate these areas in your life in 2019 and ride the auric wave of this energy into 2020.The year of the earth pig is strongly connected to relationships, so it is important to engage with family and friends frequently and to put an end to those who are toxic for you.

Water and Wood Beneath the Earth:
The Pig branch is comprised mostly of yang water with hidden stem of wood. The Pig energy for 2019 is a year of fun and festivities. It is important, however, not to be numb by the promises of this happy and promising year, but to hone in on thought out actions rather than taking undo risks.
The Pig is a friendly energy who doesn’t like confrontations and will always take the first step to establish excellent rapport with others. Therefore, we may see more kindness expressed during 2019.
With the feeling of abundance and lightness...Read More...
Pig and Relationship With Other Archetype Animals:
The pig is part of the last Triangle of Affinity. This group is noted for emotional and artistic signs of the Rabbit, Sheep and Pig. These archetypes are mainly concerned with their sensory systems and how they can best enjoy them. Things like food, design and fashion are a large part of how this triangle of archetypes function. They are flexible and compassionate, as they are in touch with their surrounding environment and those around them.
The most challenging animal archetype for the pig is the snake. They sit in polar opposite directions (NNW to SSE) and elementally oppose one another (water to fire). Opposites attract and therefore these energies will naturally become entangled with one another this year over issues of trust and overall disharmony. The remaining archetype animals are compatible with the pig in varying degrees. Here is a short overview of these relationships. *Note, below is a generalized overview of the archetype animals.

Environment and Health:
Take time this year to perfect your environment externally and internally. Keep the earth axis line (Northeast, Center to Southwest) well organized with plenty of earth elements to ground and support your higher wisdom and relationships with others. Make sure the Northwest portent is also well organized and supported with earth and metal elements to establish heavenly support, mentors, networking and travel for leisure and enjoyment – something the Pig can’t resist.
In terms of overall weather patterns, the Pig represents farm and open land. The primary water element found within the Pig, along with minor wood and earth stem above, suggests flooding to land with trees uprooting. Be mindful of trees on your property. Bring in a tree specialist if you have concerns of the integrity of their roots.
Pay attention to diet, as the Pig energy tends to over eat and overindulge in drinking. It is a good idea to infuse more metal foods to mitigate the stress between the elements of earth (stem) and water (Pig) branch. Examples of metal foods include: garlic, celery root, turnips, Chile peppers, ginger, mustard and for you carnivores, chicken and duck.
Regular exercise is of the utmost importance. You want to avoid being idle in 2019. If you are a yogi, you want to include lots of flowing movement with stabilizing standing poses as the navel and root chakra are naturally activated in 2019. Activating the crown (head) with inversions is also beneficial to bring in the natural metal from the heavens (stars). This will bridge the earth to water elements.
Changing lifestyle (or living environment) this year forces us to find within ourselves new resources that we did not even suspect.
Money, Career and Business:
It is better during the Chinese year 2019 to moderate expenses and limit generosity to the people who are the most in trouble and who really deserve it. Think about your favorite charities that are close to home in your community and reach out to them keeping that “family” theme alive.
In business, make certain administrative tasks are not neglected. Be as regular as possible in keeping your accounts up to date and don’t waste too much time to settle your potential debts.
The commercial and industrial trades are...Read More...
Society and Politics
The Year of the Earth Pig 2019 is a period during which the deficiencies of previous years are filled. Therefore, areas of tension may begin to wane. The act of giving and receiving is more prevalent in 2019. This is a step in the right direction towards unity. Perhaps we will see less separation in politics and the country at large. Individualism will not be tolerated. Nor will getting ahead at the expense of others.
Globally, we may notice governments trying to seduce heads of state with lavish gifts – this is the Pig in action. Those in power must...Read More...
Love, Friends, Family and Overall Energy:
During the Year of the Pig 2019, love relationships can be as passionate as short-lived. The Pig likes to engage in social outings and family gatherings. If relationship is secure, then it bodes well for marriage or to have a child. If it is a new relationship, be careful of delving in too quickly otherwise feelings can be hurt. It is better to establish the relationship over time and let it develop naturally.
Overall, the year of the earth pig helps us to move beyond our insecurities so we can be more benevolent towards the weakest among us. It is a time to be peaceful and charitable with self and others. Patience is a strong undertone for 2019. When practiced, there is nothing you can’t accomplish. Devotion to family, work and friends is also a must this year. Being kind, thoughtful, reliable and helpful employer are all ways to find harmony in the year of the Earth Pig.
Get busy living from a place of joy and let grace meet you just as you are.
