Year of the Monkey: Personality horoscope
In the business world, one would do well to be more attentive to what the Monkey has to say, his mind being always ready to find the solutions to solve the most complex situations. A person born during the year of the Monkey can indeed provide the best professional advice, on the condition that he feels respected, listened to and admired. If ever his word is put in doubt, the Monkey can instead turn into a manipulative and unscrupulous being.
In his love life, the Monkey's appetite and curiosity for new experiences can only bring him temporary satisfaction. Rather than the euphoria produced by the moment shared, the native of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Monkey, torn by his intense desire for freedom, will instead choose to take off. It is only in the second part of his life that the Monkey can finally find a better balance and stability within his home.
In business, having an indescribable love for money, the Monkey is constantly on the lookout for new ideas of enrichment. His self-confidence, charm, ingenuity and practical sense help him find creative and effective solutions to the majority of the problems he faces.
Some take the Monkey's assurance for arrogance. His opponents don't hesitate to try to turn around his passionate spirit against him. But the Monkey doesn't have a fragile mind and any attempt to harm his ego and slow him down is as much effort wasted.
The Monkey is a strategist with a friendly personality. When he decides it, he can, thanks to his charm and intelligence, convince and seduce even the worst of his enemies.

He has a strong natural charm, which helps him greatly to obtain the favors of others. Intelligent, pragmatic and skilled, the Fire Monkey derives its motivations from the image he projects of his own personal success. 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.
