The 4,713th Chinese New Year begins at the New MOON in Aquarius Feb 8.
Gong Xi Fa Cai
Observed by 1, 377, 583, 156 people in China it is a YANG Red Fire Monkey Year.
Monkey is a smart, naughty, wily and vigilant animal. According to Chinese Five Elements Horoscopes, Monkey contains Metal and Water. Metal is connected to gold. Water is connected to wisdom and danger. If you want to have good return for your money investment, then you need to outsmart the Monkey. Metal is also connected to the Wind. That implies the status of events will be changing very quickly. Think twice before you leap when making changes for your finance, career, business relationship and people relationship.
Former MONKEY YEARS: Must look at actual date when each Chinese Lunar New Year.
2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956, 1944, 1932, 1920,1908 1896 and the UNITES STATES was born in a Fire Monkey Year. So it is NOT a great year for the U.S. or any monkeys.
We associate Monkeys with clever, close family oriented groups. MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO,
MONKEY BUSINESS in the U.S. is a slang term meaning unaccountable, wasting time, illegal, questionable. Monkynig around carries the same connotations.Keep that in mind of what we want to be on the lookout for. Especially combined with Western planets like Saturn in Sagittarius keeping things honest.
FENG SHUI tips for 2016
The last Yang Fire Monkey years were in 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956, 1944, 1932, 1920,1908 1896 and each of the years were disastrous financially and politically and this year very special cures and enhancers are need more than ever.
The last two Monkey years were in 1992 and 2004 which sadly saw Asia devastated by a tsunami killing 200,000 and a large earthquake taking lives in Turkey so the likelihood of another disaster in 2016 is highly likely especially with America and Russia, ISIS in Syria and Iraq in conflict already although the good news is from a Feng Shui aspect 2016 should see a resolution more long term which is what the world needs.
In 2016 we have the #2 Black Star (Ju Men) visit the centre earth palace and it is a very inauspicious star and can cause disasters relating to political stability throughout the world and predicted stock market crashes/corrections amongst many other problems.

In the year of the Monkey, the bad energy called “Five Yellow” – symbolizing obstacles and misfortune, arrives at the NE. It is recommended that one hangs a metal wind chime in the NE of the house to dissolve this bad energy. The worst months will be in February, May, November, 2016
In Chinese Metaphysics, yang fire represents the sun and energy – heart and blood circulation. Yang fire also refers to the shoulder. Hence a fire year is easy to bring sickness of heart, blood, inflammation problem and shoulder pain. Metal in the human body is related to lung and breathing organ. With fire attacking metal, there is chance of flu and other breathing organ or skin problems.
The Monkey is strong metal element, in Chinese metaphysics it is a “Travelling Horse” and it clashes against the Tiger. Hence in a Monkey year there are more people travelling, in particular for people born in year and day of Tiger, Horse, Dog, and also people born in year or day of Pig, Rabbit, and Goat.
