|Today, 08/18/2017, the Chinese Almanac says: "Grasp: The Emperor of Heaven administers the Ten Thousand Things and bestows Heaven's Blessings"|
The Year of the Fire Monkey goes from February 8 2016 to January 27 2017, this according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, many Chinese astrologers consider that the astrological year starts on February 4 with the beginning of the month of the Tiger.
In short, the year of the Fire Monkey is a time prone to resolve our problems with good logical reasoning, as well as partnering with others and working together with them, so, the most typical risk for this year is thinking too much and doing little.
It's also a good year to get involved in unexpected adventures!
As for your personal predictions for 2016, it's better to have a look at them with this program, they depend on your time and date of birth, not just the year you were born:
In short, the general trend for the Tiger, the Snake and the Pig suggests that they may not fare as well as they would like... but the Rat and the Dragon should fare particularly well, and the other signs depends a lot on the details of their chinese natal chart.
So the previous program makes sense, I know it's far from perfect, and I keep saying that I will make a much improved version when I have time for it... but you see, lack of time seems to be a constant in my life, and I don't think it will be different during 2016.
And besides talking about people trends during this year, it's nice to remember historical events that happened during the last year of the Fire Monkey (1956), for example:
The Year of the Fire Monkey, 2016, may well be the year that someone (probably a monkey) exclaims "the king is naked!", and after that all the people who had been watching the naked king without saying nothing, may start thinking in a more realistic way towards the world where they live and their problems.
However when the finger of the Fire Monkey points to the world problems based on hard facts, it's more likely to generate conflicts and new problems, "more of the same but in a different way", in such a way that the problems get bigger, but I prefer not to make gloomy predictions!
