2016: Year of the Fire Monkey
Fasten your seatbelt! In the Year of the Fire Monkey, February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017, the confident and impulsive energy of Fire meets Monkey's joyful, curious, and inventive nature.
Monkey, Rat, and Dragon natives practically have to be nailed down in this exciting time. Opportunities and inspiration are everywhere. Big dreams are within reach. This year's energy sparks heated competition. Detailed planning attracts success. Be prepared to work hard and stand up for what you deserve.
The powerful March 8 Solar Eclipse encourages many, particularly Rabbit, Goat, and Pig natives, to dust off old dreams and reassess what's possible. The more willing you are to boldly reconsider your comfort zone, make new friends, and put yourself out there, the greater your rewards.
Efforts to expand your horizons may hit a wall as early as the March 20 Equinox. This slowdown can be especially frustrating for Tiger, Horse, and Dog natives. Take a page from the Fire Monkey playbook and refuse to let events dampen your ambition. Take advantage of lulls in the action to polish your skills and clear away any unfinished business.
The May 6 New Moon is a great time to get out into nature. Leave your phone at home! This may seem weird at first, just you and the great outdoors, but you'll soon discover that this disconnection is a powerful way to improve your perspective.
Potential adventures are right under your nose and excuses to have fun are all around! Exuberant Monkey encourages curiosity about the world. Laughter and friendship will be medicine for your soul.
The August 2 New Moon is a high point, especially for Monkey, Rat, and Dragon natives. Your sense of ambitious purpose is in high gear. People admire your style and are eager to accommodate you. Expect to shine in a big way.
Travel, family reunions, and anything involving children are under a lucky star. Hard work and a willingness to be of service to others spark breakthroughs near the September 1 New Moon and then the Fall Equinox.
Crafty Monkey years encourage impostors to come out from under their rocks. Opinions fly thick and fast! Rumors, many less than truthful, will trend on social media. Impulsive comments or actions without double-checking your facts can spark hurt feelings and unnecessary problems. This energy puts extra pressure on Ox, Snake, and Rooster natives to stand for the truth as they see it.
Family loyalties may be tested near the October 30 New Moon. Pig, Rabbit, and Goat natives can be peacemakers. Be generous with your affection and prepared to examine difficult subjects.
While outside events cannot always be predicted or controlled, Fire Monkey years help you find the courage to surrender what no longer works and follow your heart. By January 2017, if you summoned the imagination to dream and the courage believe in those dreams, you'll see breakthroughs that benefit you and everyone around you.
What you have established with the help of Monkey helps you face the inevitable challenges of feisty Fire Rooster, whose year begins on January 28, 2017. Get more detail about your year with your animal sign's forecast...
