Year of the Monkey
I am the seasoned traveler of the Labyrinth;
The genius of alacrity, wizard of the impossible.
My brilliance is yet unmatched in its originality.
My Heart’s filled with potent magic
That could cast 100 spells.
I am put together for mine own pleasure.
I AM THE MONKEY
The Chinese New Year is based on complicated lunar and solar cycles and this year the Monkey replaces the Sheep on February 4, 2016. The tone of the year is set by the qualities of the animal and the monkey is smart, wily, naughty and vigilant. We can look forward to a year of the unexpected – anything can happen. Avoid rigid plans and storing up goods…everything is in flux. More will be accomplished this year by individual efforts than group movements such as political revolutions or other upheavals. Exuberance, motivation and increased communication rule the day. Humor and wit will help us through the stressful times with grace and ease. Creative energy abounds. Follow your heart’s desire and take calculated risks, based on fact rather than emotion. Be rebellious and confident and act quickly. Run with ideas and don’t look back. The monkey is inventive, playful, and youthful in nature, with irrepressible curiosity and an unfettered mind, freed from inhibitions and guilt. Businesses can flourish and risks tend to pan out, finding unconventional solutions to old problems – all is possible. Sheer guts and bravado will win out, as well as education. Study widely, including all manner of subjects taught in webinars and elsewhere. Global economic growth is likely, as well as life-changing inventions.
On an individual level, it is important to Move! Get on a fitness plan…there are many choices, from walking to yoga. The status of events will be changing very quickly so think twice before leaping to make changes in finance, career, business and even people relationships. It can be a good year for financial returns is one is sharp and alert like the Monkey.
On the dark side, talk is fast and cheap and chicanery and deception are rampant. Take nothing for granted. Beware of wild schemes, untrustworthy and opportunistic individuals. Sharpen your antennae and prepare to outsmart the trickster, the MONKEY!
