Monkey See-Monkey Do!

Monkey2016 Happy Chinese New Year…a couple days late, I know. That sneaky monkey! I’ve been so busy that I barely noticed the changeover, although I did pack away all the Sheep paraphernalia decorating the house.

So, what is this new Year of the Monkey going to bring, you may be wondering. Hang on to your hats, folks, because 2016 promises to be quite a bumpy ride! The monkey represents one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese calendar.

First, let’s look at the monkey’s characteristics:

  • intelligent
  • witty
  • inventive
  • playful
  • curious
  • creative

Those are the positive traits. The negatives include:

  • opportunistic
  • tricky
  • untrustworthy

What does all this mean for you? Well, the positive and negative qualities that characterize the monkey make for a year in which anything can happen. Forget planning, because everything is going to be in flux! However, the monkey’s resourcefulness translates into the ability to find unconventional solutions to problems. Things may be happening fast, but with a combination of humor, communication and wit you will make it through.

2016 will see a general undercurrent of insecurity in spite of an upturn in finances, politics and real estate. But don’t fear – the monkey is conducive to risk-taking. You must be both creative and inventive. It’s a good year to break free of old restraints and take a chance on something you have been dreaming about! The monkey’s energy supports change. But take care and educate yourself. Take a class or join a group that shares your interests.

In this new Year of the Monkey, it’s going to be every man for himself. Be shrewd and make any big decisions with your head and not your heart!

  3. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but
    I had to ask!
