The Year of the Fire Monkey, February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017, is lucky for you, plain and simple. A Monkey with specific goals for the future set in February will enjoy greater success by year's end.
Fire can make you impatient. Be prepared for delays, or the need to revise your plans between March and August. Hard work and attention to detail will attract opportunities. March 8 and September 1 are critical dates for any new start.
Fire energy encourages exciting ideas and passionate confrontations. Expect surprising turns of fortune come October. Teamwork supports your interests. Displaying confidence and humility gets you noticed.
In the year of the Monkey, romance is just about unavoidable. Who can resist you? Not many. Fire lights up your megawatt charm.
Dating Monkeys can be lucky in love. For committed Monkeys, seemingly innocent attractions may challenge your personal integrity. Avoid leaping without looking. Sudden attractions can be your undoing.
If you have a sweetheart, do your best to create as much spark and excitement as possible. April and August 2016 and January 2017 are strong months for a romantic holiday or surprise.
The best times to make a formal commitment or take a next step in a relationship will be October 17-22, November 15-21, and December 15-21.
You'll find that April, July, and December are particularly lucky months to host or attend parties. Clever Monkey makes people feel welcome but at the same time you can share strong opinions.
Your presence on social media cannot be ignored. In your desire to defend a good cause, you can appear dominating and demanding. Monkey years encourage you to be more than usually thoughtful in presenting your ideas and opinions.
A Fire year also promises extra physical energy. If your health allows, consider taking up a sport or discipline outside of your usual comfort zone. Exciting new friends await, but you must first take the plunge!
It's an all-or-nothing year... a challenge custom-tailored for Monkey. If looking for a new job or a promotion, June and October are exciting times to make important new contacts.
Monkey's skill at mediating and negotiating gives you an edge. If you're in a subordinate position, resist the urge to take over, even though you know you could.
Diplomacy and teamwork bring greater success, especially from September 2016 through February 2017.
Do research and plan carefully. If you do this, your calculated risks in business or on the job can yield great and unusual profit. Plans may backfire if your vision is clouded by anger or negative emotions.
Monkey natives may notice an easy flow of money coming in your direction, but do keep your head and avoid reckless speculation.
After some adjustments, a Fire year promises significant economic growth for your personal bottom line. Fire influence sparks a nearly manic surge of confidence in your own abilities.
Here is a mantra to keep things in balance: "I will be adventurous and I will win, but I won't gamble more than I can afford to lose."
The tried and true methods of paying down debt, living within your means, and having at least a small savings best prepares you for the future.
