ARIES: Aries in a Fire Pig Year tend to work hard and play even harder not to mention behave like the last of the big spenders. But this year risky investments and reckless spending should be kept in check its a time for getting creative and doing more with less.

TAURUS: The Eastern year of the easygoing gourmet Porkers traditionally one for enjoying all aspects of la dolce vita because Piggy, like Taurans, is a keen fan of lifes rich smorgasbord. Definitely a year to allow yourself more time for artistic pursuits.

GEMINI: The year of the playful party porker who loves networking, schmoozing and cruising the room should bring excellent connections for Geminis. Extra caution is advised in money matters though: risky financial ventures arent recommended.

VIRGO: The year of the indulgent swine encourages hardworking Virgos to enjoy the good things life has to offer, which youve certainly earned. Youre not one to splash cash you dont have the years biggest warning so get down, get dirty and have a wonderful wallow.
