  2016: Year of the Fire Monkey
year of the fire monkey, psychic readings, by universal psychic guild

Chinese New Year for 2016 commences on the 8th February and is the Year of the RED FIRE MONKEY.

Chinese New Year's Day is different each year on the Gregorian calendar as used by the Western world, and falls between January 21st and February 20th and is calculated by the Moon cycle.

The Chinese record the time in sixty year cycles which bring together the five elements with each of the twelve animal years. This ensures that each element influences each animal sign only once during the sixty year cycle. The 12 animals in order are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. The 5 elements are Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.

The story of how the animals were chosen says that when Buddha found enlightenment beside an old oak tree he invited all the animals to his kingdom to celebrate. Only 12 animals arrived and Buddha rewarded them by bestowing their name to each New Year – in order of their arrival. The Monkey was the 9th animal to arrive. Each animal has a natural element which influences its core trait and in addition is also influenced by the element governing the year. The natural element of Monkey is Metal, and 2016 is governed by the element of Fire, so 2016 is the Year of the Fire Monkey.

The Chinese Year draws its meaning from the animal that represents the year.

The Monkey is most compatible with those born in the Years of the Rat and the Dragon and is least compatible with those born in the Year of the Dragon.

The Monkey is an animal that is very difficult to pin down – it has so many different sides – it is intelligent, energetic, creative, witty, animated and inventive. The Monkey is happy working independently whilst maintaining relationship with the group. The Monkey has a playful and childlike exterior that covers up an intelligent and strong mind. The Buddhists worshipped the Monkey but they also were aware that the Monkey carried the traits of the trickster, the manipulator, the opportunist, the one that should never be completely trusted. The Monkey for all his good qualities is not completely honest and scrupulous.

The characteristics of the Monkey most closely resemble those of Gemini in the Zodiac.

Hence the Year 2016 will reflect all of these traits, the positive and the negative. It will be a very energetic year, with lots of communication and mental energy flowing. The year will be lively and optimistic especially where finances, politics and real estate are concerned.

At an individual level, it is a time to engage in physical activities and to take chances and to plant seeds for the future. However, it is also a year to take much care, to check things before signing contracts, to not take things and people at face value but rather let them prove themselves before putting too much trust into them. It is a year of the individual rather than the group.

Look forward to the year ahead, make plans; be positive, energetic and let those best qualities of the Monkey shine!

Famous people born in the Year of the Monkey: Charles Dickens, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Nelson Rockefeller, Macauley Culkin, Elizabeth Taylor, Sylvia Plath and Pope John Paul II.
