Who does the boar love — and loathe? Boars gets along well with people born in the years of the tiger, rabbit and goat. The boar has no conflict with the rat, ox, dragon, horse, monkey, rooster and dog. The boar is highly incompatible with the snake, however, as they can’t tolerate each other. And the boar has great difficulty with other boars, as they struggle for dominance.

The five types of boar: Metal boar (1971) is forceful and wishes to dominate others. Wood boar (1935) is skillful and wishes to maneuver others. Water boar (1983) is resourceful and wishes to connect with others. Fire boar (1947) is emotional and wishes to influence others. Earth boar (1959) is dutiful and wishes to lead others.

Characteristics of the boar: The boar is a noble, affectionate, generous and gallant zodiac animal that creates an atmosphere of easy life, free spirit and abundance or wealth. The boar cherishes friendship, carries few resentments and rarely stabs people in the back. Because of that, friends always remain at the boar’s side. Boars love to participate in social events and charitable functions and tend to have lavish lifestyles and indulge in entertainment, parties and eating.

Boar is traditionally a lucky and happy zodiac symbol in ancient China.
