This year the birth sign is Earth Female Pig and as such people with Pig birth sign are Lo Khak. They should excise extreme care throughout this year.It is also to be noted that for men the year before a Lo-Khak (called Nang- Khak) is a little more problematic than the Lo-Khak itself, for women, it is the year after Lo-Khak (called Chi-Khak) that is tough which many astrologers don't point out.
During a Lo-khak year, there are reputedly six months of particular danger when you are most vulnerable:
