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!

Happy (Chinese) Neigh Year – The Year of the Horse

Year of the Horse It’s officially The Year of the Horse. And I, for one, am glad that The Year of the Snake is over! 2013 was a difficult year for me in many ways. According to Chinese astrology, if your animal sign is represented in the current calendar year, things will most likely NOT be going your way. Therefore, you must take precautionary measures because forces will be conspiring against you.

The horse spirit represents the ethos of the Chinese people – energetic, confident, bright and eloquent. Horse people are independent, sociable and impulsive. If you were born in a year represented by the horse, (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 and 2014), this could be a wild ride for you.

In general, The Year of the Horse represents good fortune, speedy victories, unexpected adventure and romance. But it also portends conflict. It could be a year of battles. What’s worse, people will be more stubborn in sticking up for what they believe to be right, so resolutions or business negotiations could be hard to accomplish. And beware: the financial outlook appears to be unstable. The wooden horse represents fire energy,  so it could be a hazardous year all around.

So what’s a horse person to do? Wear red? With wooden beads? Sure! But you’d be best advised to lie low and try not to make any big changes (or investments) this year, unless you’re absolutely sure about them. If you are, then go for it! Fortunes will be made – and lost – this year. Follow your intuition, because your keen insight will help you make the right decisions.

Happy New Year everyone!
