The Year of the Fire Monkey 2016: “Are you ready for a passion, joy and creativity?”

The Year of the Fire Monkey 2016 is the energy of achieving your impossible visions and a year of unlimited possibility! On February 8th, the Fire Monkey will come and more than 1 Billion people will celebrate to welcome the Year of the Fire Monkey and its contributes to our lives. Do you know why?

monkeyAccording to Chinese system and many sides I visited ( see links below) the monkey belongs to the element of Fire which embraces the characteristics of PASSION, JOY and CREATIVITY. Expect there to be quantum leaps in our lives! It is the time to shake things up, create change and forge a new path.  Anything can happen; therefore it is a time when risks will be rewarded. Yes, even the most ambitious plans can succeed, if we know how to play with our Monkey, ha!

The primary element is changing: 2016 is a FIRE Year!

FIRE is the element that creates the fastest transformation. Fire transforms energy and information from one form to another form. In a Fire element year, we often see massive global changes, new initiatives, and many new innovations and solutions creating rapid changes.

2016 is one of the most powerful years….

that you will experience in your life. Why? Because the collective human consciousness is expanding, people are rising above old systems, rules and regulations and more people are focusing on personal development, empowerment and bringing out their gifts and talents.

Take advantage of the Fire element year…

you can harness its trans-formative power to evaluate your life and change anything that no longer serves you: money, love, health and wellness, recreation, spirituality, and more are yours to create your own possibilities.

Positive Contribution of Monkey …

The monkey is the ninth animal of the twelve year animal cycle. Monkeys tend to be intelligent, agile, adventurous, playful, and witty. On the other hand, the curious nature of the monkey predisposes them to mischievousness. The naughty monkey may be a bit of a prankster. The fire element in the year of the monkey enhances ambition and adventurousness.

The Monkey as a “Nobleman”

Chinese horoscope says that the monkey is a “Nobleman” for people born in years or days of Yin wood, Yin earth Heavenly stems. This means any birth year ending with the number 5, or 9 such as 1955, 1959, 1965, 1969, 1975, 1979, 1985, 1989, and 1995, 99…..ect. “Nobleman” is our protective angels who will come to help us and make everything smooth and positive. The Monkey is also the “Academic star” for people born in a Yang fire year. So 2016 is also a good year for baby birth as all babies born this year will automatically have “Academic stars” which means intellectual quality and strong desire to learn.


The nature of the monkey

Those born in the year of the monkey (2016, 2004, 1992….just keep subtracting 12…) are highly sociable, talkative and quick witted, imaginative and loyal.  They often have a large group of friends, are very inquisitive, and require constant activity and movement.  They are highly intelligent and competitive,  they love money and are often skilled at whatever career they choose. Monkeys get bored easily and are always on the go–looking for the next adventure or game.  Monkeys tend to have keen mental and psychological skills that allow them to read others easily.  In virtue, this enables the to understand others quickly. In vice, the trait often plays out in subtle manipulation and egocentric behavior. When out of balance, the playful monkey might become meddlesome, opportunistic, sly, petty and manipulative.

2016 is the year of the Fire (Red) Monkey

This coming year may challenge many of us to see how very flexible and positive we can be.   The year of the fire monkey should see an improvement in the economy, but also brings big challenges and transition on global levels.  Watch for rallies, political tension, human rights awareness and activism.  Delusions, lies and hidden agendas will come to light. This is a year that can bring big positive change, but those who aren’t ready for it or are too inflexible, might get singed.

Let me wrap up our Red Monkey journey 2016 as…

It will be good and “kinda” tricky.


Tricky surprises: “La, la, I got you!”

The positive and negative quality of the Monkey Year 2016 culminates in a year that anything can happen. There is little point in storing up goods or planning one’s life. The influence of the Monkey puts everything into flux. Things will get accomplished, but largely through personal and individual efforts. Group movements, such as political upheaval or revolutions, will not make a mark during this year.

This cheeky animal bursts with exuberance, bringing a lightening fast pace and fantastical motivation. The Monkey increases communication, humor and wit, helping us get through stressful times with grace and ease. Business flourishes and risks tend to pan out. The Monkey’s gift is the ability to find unconventional solutions to old problems.

Daring to be different can lead to success.

Talk is fast and cheap though, so be on the alert for deceptions. With so much mental energy zapping around, everyone needs to re-think their fitness program, diet and health plan. If you don’t have one, you definitely need to instigate some form of regular physical activity this year. The body was designed to move! Honor it! Stress needs to be burned off by going to the gym, swimming, yoga, water aerobics, dance, martial arts, team sports, tennis or long walks.

When was the last time you did any of these things?

Although a lively, optimistic and progressive year where finances, politics, and real estate should see an upturn, there will be a decided undercurrent of insecurity. Everyone wants to work the shrewdest angle, get the best deal, and win big. However, business decisions made this year should be based on fact, not emotion. Problems and chicanery abound, so nothing this year should be taken for granted, whether politically, financially, professionally, domestically or emotionally.

A particularly auspicious time for new inventions, the Year of the Monkey is for taking risks and being rebellious, a year where agile, inventive minds, sheer guts and bravado will win out. Now is the time of courage, action, anarchy, and true devotion to even the wildest of schemes, a time to start new endeavours, for they are destined to succeed under Monkey’s influence. But a word to the wise: those who can hang on for the wild ride, outsmart the confidence-trickster, and bluff their way through will come out unscathed. Those who are dull or slow witted, and can’t handle the stress will come unglued.

Wishing you an abundant and magical 2016!
