2019 Zodiac PigChinese New Year 2019 animal sign is the Brown Pig. Chinese calendar combines solar, lunar and 60 Stem-Branch counting systems. The 60 Stem-Branch calendar uses the names of Yin Yang Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) and 12 animals to rank the sequences. Five elements are connected to five colors - White, Black, Green, Red, and Brown. So Chinese use the color animal name to count the year. The name of 2019 is the Female Earth Pig. Brown is connected to Earth. Therefore, 2019 is also called Brown Earth Pig Year.

The first day of the Brown Pig year is not the Chinese New Year Day in Chinese Astrology. The first day of the Tiger month is the first day of the Chinese Astrology year. This day is called Start of Spring, which is the date when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. This day is around February 4, each year. 2019 Chinese Brown Pig starts on February 4, 2019 in China's time zone. That means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of Brown Pig Year. If a baby is born on or after February 4, 2019, then baby's zodiac sign is the Pig, not Dog.
