Welcome New Year of the Fire Monkey!
The second New Moon after the solstice 2016 marks Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey and oh boy, what a chang-a-roony.
NEW MOON IN 19 AQUARIUS Feb 8/9
LA – Monday 6:39am
NY – Monday 9:39am
LON – Monday 2:39pm
SYD – Tuesday 1:39am
This is the year of the Cheeky Monkey. A blockbuster shift, moving from two years of Wood element (Green Horse and Green Sheep) to Red Fire Monkey.
Contemplative becomes assertive.
Reflective become proactive.
Stuck becomes rockets launching, fire works and who cares about the slippery slope!
Think of it a bit like moving back to Aries after two years of Taurus, back to Leo after Virgo, back to Sagittarius after Capricorn. From Earth to Fire means we’ve tilled the soil, planted the seed and now make room because HEY-O they are going to grow!
Monkey years have an abundance of energy, enthusiasm and spark. In FIRE, all the MORE dynamic.
This sign shares some of the intellectual and quick-silver qualities of western astrology’s sign of Virgo including a love of friends, witty dialog and analytical capabilities. It’s mutable, and again, with added fire, think Sagittarius enthusiasm.
Monkeys years are about lofty challenges and high sighted goals–we actually thrive when they have something way out there to reach for. With a hefty dose of curiosity, Monkey years bring a deal of information so we can turn what we learn into wonderful stories we can share with others.
Our monkey year is all about communicate–be it through phone, internet or face to face. The main thing is we all feel connected. Social, sensitive and full of life, Monkey years can turn trouble into fun, gloom into a sunny day, low returns and results into high octane YES!
