2016 is the Year of the Fire Monkey, fire being the dominant element this year. (the other elements are wood, metal, water and earth)
Fire brings huge energy and determination to the Monkeys. They strive to gain the upper hand and like nothing better than to be at the top of the tree. Being recognized for their achievements gives them greater job satisfaction than money.
In business they are good negotiators, persuasive and organized, but can get 'burnt' by taking risky shortcuts.
Fire monkey women, will be willing to give up their own wealth or dreams to raise their family and to ensure their spouse and children are successful.
Fire Monkeys should remember that there is a saying in China: "The further up the tree a Monkey goes, the more you see his bottom." If they use their talents and energy well, they can be extremely successful and popular with all.
