Pigs/sows are a symbol of the Crone Goddess, rooting out the truth, deep Earth magick, past life knowledge, intelligence, cunning, generosity, nourishment, discovery. Ancient Egyptians saw the pig, or more specific the sow as the symbol of the Great Mother, and symbols of fertility and abundance. In this context, she is associated with Isis, the Goddess of fertility. The Celts also had similar symbolism associated with pig, being associated with both the Mother and abundance as Manannan had a herd of pigs that never dwindled. The pig is also associated with Ceridwen and Phaea who are both moon Goddesses. In Chinese culture the pig is associated with virility, strength and fertility.
