🐒 Monkeys are gifted with strong oratorical skills, and their inquisitive mind is always fresh and alert. People born during a Year of the Monkey, 9th sign of the Chinese zodiac, are agile and resourceful, with a psychic talent to detect events before they actually happen.

At work, we shall all do better listening more often to what Monkeys have to say, as their mind is always up to the challenge of solving the most complex situations.

People born in the Year of the Monkey can indeed provide the best professional advice, provided they first feel respected, listened to, and admired. Only when their word is put in doubt can Monkeys turn into manipulative and unscrupulous beings.

In their love life, Monkeys' appetite and curiosity for new experiences can only bring them a temporary satisfaction. Rather than euphoria produced by the shared moment, persons born in the Year of the Monkey, torn by their intense desire for freedom, will rather choose to leave off. Only in the second part of their lives can Monkeys find a better balance and household stability.

In business, Monkeys having an indescribable love for money, they are perpetually on the lookout for new enrichment ideas. Their confidence and charm, ingeniosity and practicality, help them find creative and effective solutions to the problems they face.

The Fire Monkey is the most energetic and the most assured among all the Monkeys.

He has a strong natural charm, which helps him greatly to obtain the favors of others.

Very uncomfortable with old age, this type of Monkey will do anything to look younger. Innovative and focused on progress, the Fire Monkey has many ideas in his infancy that might never become reality, as long as he persists in wanting to do everything on his own. Furthermore, the Fire Monkey only accepts the help of others as long a he can dominate them thanks to his sharp analytical mind.

If the Metal Monkey can, like his fellows, succeed in all trades, he's also reputed to be a pioneer, a trendsetter and a discoverer of talents. He's a gold prospector in the literal and figurative sense, very at ease in the artistic professions, actor, graphic artist, illustrator, choreographer or contemporary artist.

💧 Water Monkey

You’re a Water Monkey if you’re born in 1992. In 2017, you’re 25 years old. Your Lucky Number is 9.*

The Water Monkey tends to take his dreams for realities.

He's an eccentric and a creative, whose talent is only limited by his excessive emotionality and his immoderate taste for secrecy. Pleasant, refined and of elegant company, the Water Monkey tends to be less talkative than its fellows. He prefers to act in the shade to advance his interests and he never does anything for free. A service rendered is a service due.

* The Lucky number combination may be embedded in your phone number, the number of your home or the license plate of your car, a hotel room, or as the indicative number of a city or country. Lucky numbers mean that the life element the Lucky number contains has a secret potential and can be highly beneficial.
