2016 - Year of the Monkey! What Type of "Monkey" Are You: Wood, Fire, Earth, Gold, or Water?


2016 is a year of the Monkey.

This 2016 doesn't start on January 1 for Monkeys (and traditional Chinese)! 

It starts at Chinese New Year (February 8, 2016), which changes year-to-year according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

From researches and readings about people born on this Year of the Monkey, occupying the 9th position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Monkey possesses such character traits as curiosity, mischievousness, and cleverness. Forever playful, Monkeys are the masters of practical jokes. Even though their intentions are always good, this desire to be a prankster has a tendency to create ill will and hurt feelings.

Although they are inherently intellectual and creative, Monkeys at times have trouble exhibiting these qualities. When that happens, they appear to others to be confused. But nothing could be further from the truth as Monkeys thrive on being challenged. Monkeys prefer urban life to rural, and their favorite pastime is people-watching.



What Type of "Monkey" Are You: Wood, Fire, Earth, Gold, or Water?


As well as having a Chinese zodiac sign, according to Chinese element theory, each year is associated with one of five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, or Earth, which means that e.g. a Wood Monkey comes once in a 60-year cycle. So there are five types of Monkeys, each with different characteristics.





People born in January or February should take particular note of when Chinese New Year falls to confirm their birth sign.

The Monkey is ninth of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. Each year is related to an animal sign according to a 12-year-cycle.
