In the Year of the Fire Monkey, February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017, friendly, honest Dog enjoys a wave of self-assurance that makes you a natural leader.
Dog radiates a positive energy other people admire. This powerful magnetism makes Dog ferocious if you, or yours, are threatened.
"Never met a problem I cannot overcome"... this kind of Monkey energy has Dog dashing this way and that. You'll be full of ideas and solutions, not all of which will be successful. Older mentors will be especially helpful in guiding your choices.
March 8 and September 1 are Dog's power days for any fresh start.
Exuberant Monkey makes this an exciting, but unsettled, year for romance. A committed Dog will be more adventurous and dramatic.
October can bring the end of a relationship. Don't sacrifice yourself for someone who can't or won't give you what you need. If dating, a new and promising love interest will be totally, wonderfully distracting.
Commitments made in Fire years require extra caution and good sense. It's unfortunate for sudden elopements, so don't make any serious decisions on impulse. Dog needs time to prove personal integrity and develop trust.
Your luckiest days to take a relationship to the next level will be October 17-22, November 15-21, and December 15-21.
Fire brings out your inner adventurer. Let your creative imagination run free! It's time to explore the world and try new things. A growing circle of family and admiring friends will be happy to join you.
Dogs can be especially influential in the lives of children. You will discover a greater sense of purpose in joining up with people you admire, especially in support of any cause dear to your heart.
Monkey makes this an ideal year to pursue big dreams that hold the potential for revolutionary change. June, October, and January 2017 are your power months for making friends or bringing people together.
March through August requires greater patience, focus, and a willingness to make changes in established systems. By September, your considerable people skills are the factor that helps you get ahead.
Monkey helps you feel expansive, invincible, and independent. Many Dogs will be restless and open to trying something new. This can be positive if you have built a firm foundation for your next step.
A tendency to judge people can alienate Dogs from potential allies. Feeling undercut or threatened on the job is a red light saying it's time to make a change. Don't be afraid to explore your options.
Strap yourself in for a financial rollercoaster! While money is never your primary motivator, both Fire and Monkey encourage risk and demand that you step up to protect your interests and also the interests of your family.
Great gains could potentially be followed by great losses later in the year, as long political dramas on the public stage finally play out and the world reacts.
Stick to your true nature in these volatile, unpredictable times. Guard what you have. Share information only with trusted advisors. Your confident and respected nature helps Dog natives find a way to profit, even in tough times.
