The Monkey (猴) is the ninth of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Monkey is associated with the earthly branch symbol 申.
Years of the Monkey
Monkey Years are ninth in the cycle following the Sheep Years, and recur every twelfth year. The Chinese New Year does not fall on a specific date, so it is essential to check the calendar to find the exact date on which each Monkey Year actually begins.
Monkeys are hard workers once they have a piece of the action. The bigger the piece, the better they do. Monkeys like to travel, and they want to do it first class.They need a certain amount of excitement in their lives.
People born in the Year of the Monkey are the erratic geniuses of the cycle. Clever, skillful, and flexible, they are remarkably inventive and original and can solve the most difficult problems with ease. There are few fields in which Monkey people wouldn’t be successful but they have a disconcerting habit of being too agreeable. They want to do things now, and if they cannot get started immediately, they become discouraged and sometimes leave their projects. Although good at making decisions, they tend to look down on others. Having common sense, Monkey people have a deep desire for knowledge and have excellent memories. Monkey people are strong willed but their anger cools quickly. They are most compatible with the Dragon and Rat.
The Chinese Zodiac, also Sheng Xiao in Chinese, is a scheme to describe years and relates each year to an animal sign. In Chinese Zodiac, consecutive 12 years are a cycle and each year is presented by an animal orderly from the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog to pig.
The Monkey’s love of self-indulgence can also lead to other kinds of trouble. This Sign has very limited self-control concerning food, alcohol and other pleasurable activities. It can be party time all the while for the Monkey, yet when it leads to a strong hangover or a shattered heart, generally someone else and not theirs, this Sign might actually show a sense of remorse. They will not openly admit the error of their ways, but at least they will withdraw and try to tone things down for a while.
