The year of the Fire Monkey, February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017, bestows a wealth of blessings on sensual, honest, and strong-willed Pigs. Your emotions, determination, and desires are stronger than ever.
You may sense as the year begins that anything is possible, and it is. Monkey helps you follow your dreams with a refusal to quit that puts others to shame. In a year when Monkey tricks are everywhere, Pig will more easily identify who is honest and who is not.
March 8 and September 1 are both power days for a Pig to set a goal or make any fresh start.
With an abundance of Fire energy, your love life will never be dull. This does not necessary mean it will be easy. Monkey optimism in the face of reality can make Pig leap without looking.
Passionate affairs that don't last, or even a one-night stand are possible. Be wise and consult trusted friends if you want to take a relationship to the next level.
The most auspicious days for Pigs to marry are December 22-29, 2016 or January 19-27, 2017.
If you have a sweetheart, make plans to generously celebrate your love at every possible opportunity. You'll be well rewarded.
With imaginative Monkey leading the way, it's your year to plan, host, or attend legendary parties! March, July, and November are especially pleasant times for Pigs to make new friends and bring people together.
With so much Fire energy in the mix and Monkey enhancing your willingness to break with tradition, be aware there is such a thing as having too much fun. Overindulgence of any kind can negatively impact your health and your reputation.
Rather than give in to temptation, spend more time around friends and family who appreciate you, but who don't encourage your tendency to go to extremes.
One of the biggest benefits Fire Monkey bestows on Pig's career lies simply in being fearless. Your willingness to work long hours and do your best in pursuit of success attracts slow but gradual recognition as the year progresses.
Be patient with any setbacks between March and August. Accept what lessons come your way.
It is possible a big change or opportunity in October will set you on a new and better career path.
Monkey years reward teamwork. Your generosity with co-workers, and charm with people you see each day, wins you growing respect in the last months of the year.
With Fire Monkey in charge, it can be a bumpy ride for good-hearted Pig.
Economic markets will be unsettled, which can undermine even a smart investor's best laid plans. Pig might stubbornly sacrifice a nest egg for the sake of a risky venture.
Your natural generosity is in high gear. But Monkey can inspire people to play tricks and be less than honest. You may be tempted to give more than you should to family, friends, or even a stranger with a good story.
Be especially conservative about spending for pleasure in the summer months and over the winter holidays.
