Monkey’s 2016 Horoscope :

  • You will have a prosperous career in 2016.
  • Love or Marriage will be rather colorless this year.
  • Great unexpected fortune will find its way to you.
  • Occasionally you will suffer from minor illnesses but they won’t come to much, due to your general good health.

Career: Maybe Prosperous, if…

Monkeys can have prosperous careers in 2016 if correctly aligned with the Tai Sui star. They will be able to make breakthroughs if they focus on their career and discipline themselves. If not, they will hardly achieve anything. They should guard against untrustworthy people and discipline themselves in order to avoid trouble.
It is advised not to change your current profession and jump to a new one, said Harrindra

A Year of Money for Monkeys?

Great unexpected fortune will find its way to Monkeys in 2016 because monkey itself is a Yang element, which itself is the wealth element for 2016.
If Fire and Metal are present in your BaZi than your year is good for Wealth.
They should avoid gambling, speculating, and collect illegal or greedy gains, or they will lose everything they have, especially in the third Chinese lunar month. They should also guard against becoming poor due to greed. Monkeys should not show off their wealth, or they will be persecuted by others.

Health Risks, be careful

Monkeys might suffer from minor illnesses; however, they will not come to much harm if they are careful. They should be aware of traffic safety as they go about their daily routine, and never take risks.

Turbulence in Relationships

Monkeys relationships will be rather colorless in 2016. The more they long for a relationship, the harder it will be for them to get one. They may encounter a romantic relationship if it happens naturally.

The Monkeys Traits: Sharp, Smart…

People born in a year of the Monkey have the magnetic personality, they are witty, intelligent, mischievousness and clever. Monkeys are masters of practical jokes because they like playing most of the time.

They have many interests and need partners who are capable of stimulating them. While some like the eccentric nature of Monkeys, some don’t trust their sly, restless, and inquisitive nature. Although they are clever and creative, monkeys cant always exhibit their talent properly. Monkeys like to take challenges.

Love Compatibility:

Love compatibility is counted purely according to the individuals BaZi Chart.
To determine compatibility by taking into account just personal Chinese animal zodiac sign will not serve the purpose at all.

Gua Compatibility or Animal Sign (Branch) Compatibility is not a way to access relationship.

You need to check Whole BaZi Chart of the person, to know everything in detail.
