 Pleasure-lovers to the core, sensual Pigs know how to have fun. They love indulging in the good life, and at times, go too far into excess. But that’s a Pig: over the top and not afraid of it. Although they enjoy luxury, Pigs have more of a “new money” approach to it, and can err on the side of tacky. They know how to laugh at themselves, and could care less, since they’re usually laughing all the way to the bank. Provocative Pigs enjoy power, and gladly stir up controversy, like Tupac Shakur, Hillary Clinton and Simon Cowell. Showy Pigs love to flaunt their status, and can throw a good insult at their foes. At times, greed can be an issue for this sign. Their desires easily get the best of them. Most Pigs can benefit from a little restraint and discipline. And they’re best off incorporating it themselves, rather than having the law or life impose limits on them.
