Year 2007 is a Chinese Red Fire Pig Year. Why did the Chinese name the year 2007 as the Red Pig Year? Chinese calendar used the Stem-Branch system to count the days, months and years. There are 10 Stems and 12 Branches in this system. Stems are named by the Yin-Yang and Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth). The Stem sequence order is Yang Wood, Yin Wood, Yang Fire, Yin Fire, Yang Earth, Yin Earth, Yang Metal, Yin Metal, Yang Water and Yin Water. Branches use the animal names.
The Branch sequence order is Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Chicken, Dog and Pig. Stem and Branch are used together to form a cycle of 60 counting systems which begin with Wooden Rat and end with Water Pig. You can see the entire sequence from the Chinese New Year's page. From Year 1924 to 1983 is a complete cycle. Year 2007 is Female Fire Pig , the 24th of the Stem-Branch in the system. Because Fire is equivalent to color Red in the Five-Element system, Year 2007 is also called Red Pig year.
Pig is a Lucky and Mild Animal
President Ronald Reagan was born in year of Pig. He was very happy to know that Pig is a very lucky animal in Chinese horoscope. Chinese see that pig eat food all the time, enjoy sleeping all day long and worry nothing during its entire life. Therefore, pig is a lucky animal.
Pig contains Water and Wood according to Chinese Five Element astrology. Pig doesn't fight with Metal, because Metal, Water and Wood together have the Circulating Relationship. Pig doesn't fight with Fire, because Water, Wood and Fire together have the Circulating Relationship, too.
But Water in Pig will fight with Earth. Earth animals are Cow, Dragon, Sheep and Dog. Cow contains Earth, Metal and Water. Cow and Pig together don't fight directly, because Earth, Metal, Water and Wood are in circulating sequence. We can find the similar circulating relationships between other Earth animals with Pig. So Pig doesn't have face-to-face conflict with other animals.
Snake and Pig have Fighting Relationship. But Snake contains Fire, Earth and Metal. Putting Snake and Pig together, we still can find Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal in circulating sequence. That's means the fighting relationship between Snake and Pig is not that serious. The conclusion is that most of people born in year of Pig don't have unyielding argument with others. Since Pig-type people have more peaceful lifestyle than others, therefore they are luckier.
Red Pig and Lucky Element
The past three years, Monkey 2004, Chicken 2005 and Dog 2006 are Metal cycle. Year of Red Pig 2007 is the beginning year of the Water cycle. Therefore the coming three years are favorable to people whose lucky element is Water.
Basically, Pig contains Water and Wood. Red is related Fire. In short, people will have better luck in 2007, if their Lucky Element is Water, Wood or Fire.
Chinese New Year
The Chinese New Year day is on February 18th, 2007. This day is a new moon day, it is the first day of the first Chinese lunar month in the Chinese Lunar Calendar system. The exact new moon time is at 00:14 on 18-Feb-07 in China time zone.
If we apply Chinese lunar calendar system on the USA time zones, we find something interesting there. In the US Pacific Standard Time (PST), the new moon time is at 08:14 of 2-17-07. In the US Eastern Standard Time (EST), the new moon time is at 11:14 of 2-17-07. Therefore, the Chinese New Year day for USA time zones is on February 17th, 2007.
The new moon time is at 16:14 on 2-17-07 of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and at 17:14 on 2-17-07 of Time Zone GMT+1. That means Chinese New Year day is on February 17th, 2007 for European countries. For Asian countries, such as Vietnam and Thailand using GMT+7 time zone, the Chinese New Year Day is on February 17th, 2007.
In China time zone, the first day of the Red Pig Year is February 4th, 2007, because February 4th, 2007 is the first day of Tiger month and the Tiger month is the first month of the year in Chinese Fortune-Telling Calendar system.
In the Chinese Fortune-Telling calendar, the first day of the first month, Tiger month, is called "Start of Spring", which is when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. In the China time zone, the time of Start of Spring is at Feb-04 13:18. So the first day of the Red Pig year 2007 is on 04-Feb-07.
The time of Start of Spring is on Feb-04 at 00:18 for US EST zone; so the first day of Red Year is same to China time zone. But the time of Start of Spring is on Feb-03 at 21:18 for US PST zone; therefore the first day of the Chinese Red Pig year is February 3rd, 2007 in PST zone.
The Year 2007 (Red Pig) is the 4704th Chinese year. The Chinese believe that the first king of China was the Yellow King (he was not the first emperor of China). The Yellow King became king in 2697 B.C., therefore China will enter the 4704th year on February 4th, 2007. Also, the Chinese Year uses the cycle of 60 Stem-Branch counting systems and the Red Pig is the 23rd Stem-Branch in the cycle. Since 4704 = (60 *78) + 24, therefore this Red Pig Year is the 4704th Chinese Year.
Some web sites say the year 2007 is the 4705th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the calendar of Yellow King used the winter solstice day as the first day of the year. So the first winter solstice was on around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st means nothing to Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C. for a year, then year 2007 is the 4705th Chinese year.
Forecast using the theory of Five Elements
To forecast the luck in the coming years, we have to know what elements and animals are in our birth chart first from Find Your Lucky Element page.
2007 is the year of Female Red Pig. Red is equivalent to Fire in Five Element theory. The major element in Pig is Water. Fire and Water are opposite elements. Fire and Water have conflict and fighting relationship and are hard to coexist. In most of cases, if your Lucky Element is Fire, then the Water is an unlucky element. If the Lucky Element is Water, then Fire is the unlucky element. If Fire or Water is equivalent to your Money Star, then your money luck in 2007 should be "money comes, then money goes" or "money goes, then comes". If Fire or Water is the Career Star, then career opportunity either comes first or comes late in 2007. If Fire or Water represent the health, then heath will be either good or bad, then different result in the end of 2007. In short, you will win, but lose some.
Red Pig is like Fire on the Water. So water is hot. Pig contains Wood, which can act as the Mediator between Fire and Water, according to the Circulating Relationship. As long as Wood is there, Fire won't be extinguished. If your lucky element is Fire, then your luck is there all year long in 2007, but the luck is that not great, since water is there and Fire won't become a big one.
Stem and Branch Relationships
Everybody has a different birth chart. To determine every individual's luck in 2007, we still have to see the stem relationships and branch relationships between Red Pig and the birth chart. Those relationships might take away the luck coming from Fire or Water of Red Pig. For example, Tiger has the Attraction Relationship with Pig. When they are together, Pig will show more Wood characteristic than Water. 2007 is year of Female Fire Red Pig.
When Male Water meets Female Fire, then both of them will turn into Wood, according to Stem Attraction Relationships. If you have Male Water or Tiger in your birth chart or the current major cycle and your lucky element is Wood, then 2007 is a good year for you. If your have both Male Water and Tiger and the lucky element is Wood, then Red Pig will bring you more luck than you expect.
If your birth chart and your current major cycle contain Rabbit and Sheep, then 2007 is a very special year for you - either extremely good or bad. If you Lucky Element is Wood, then it will be one of the best years in your life. This is because Pig, Rabbit and Sheep together have the mutual attraction relationship and generate very powerful Wood energy.
If your lucky element is Metal, then you need to pay more attention on your people relationships and also your money luck might be cut in half. If your birth chart is no Fire and Lucky Element is Earth, then you need to keep focus, alert and vigilant on your safety, investment, career, health and people relationships.
Lucky Element is Earth or Metal
There is no Earth or Metal inside the Red Pig. How about the luck for people whose lucky element is Metal or Earth in 2007? Well, people with lucky element Metal should have better luck in the past three years. People cannot have good luck all the time. People should take turn to share the chance of good luck, which is pretty fair from mother nature. 2006 is Male Fire Red Earth Dog. Earth was in 2006. Red Pig 2007 is Female Fire Water. Fire is the supporting element of Earth. Some luck is still carrying over 2007 for people with lucky element Earth. No Earth or Metal in the Red Pig doesn't mean bad luck in 2007. You just need more conservative in making decision.
