    2013 Snake Year Fortunes for the Monkey

    Feb. 10, 2013 - Jan. 30, 2014: Water Snake Year

    By Peter Allsop

    Author's book: Year of the Snake: Chinese Astrology & Feng Shui Guide

    Chinese Astrology's 9th Sign, quick-witted Monkey's Snake Year 2013-14 fortunes from Monkey-business are most promising; however, caution is needed on the health and relationships fronts. General advice for Monkeys during this period follows.

    Are You a Monkey?

    Are you 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 (and so-on in 12-year increments) between 8th February 2016 and 27th January 2017 (Monkey Year's end)? Do partners, friends, relatives, colleagues, parents or children fall into this category? If the answer is 'Yes' then this is for you!

    The Monkey

    Years of the MONKEY:

    1908 Earth; 1920 Metal; 1932 Water; 1944 Wood; 1956 Fire; 1968 Earth; 1980 Metal; 1992 Water; 2004 Wood; 2016 Fire, 2028 Earth.

    Famous Monkeys Include:

    Gillian Anderson, Tom Hanks, Michael Douglas, Jennifer Aniston, David Copperfield, Leonardo da Vinci, Ian Fleming, Richard Madeley, Jerry Hall, Elizabeth Taylor, Will Smith, Venus Williams, Kylie Minogue and Rod Stewart.


    Monkeys thrive in urban settings due to their restless, inquisitive natures. Here, clever Monkeys discover more opportunities to profit from and exploit in their usual resourceful, versatile and ingenious fashion. Ever full of good intentions, Monkeys are usually good company.

    Monkeys are often (too) easily bored and their playful, quick-witted practical jokes can sometimes hurt the feelings of others. Monkeys can also be mischievous and deceptive at times.

    Ideal Monkey Careers and Occupations Include:

    Singing, Engineering, Research, Cinema, Acting, Information Technology, Accountancy, Banking, Science, Engineering, Stock-broking, Sales, Finance, Accountancy, and Science.


    In relationship terms, Monkey compatibility is greatest with those born under the Signs of the Rat and Dragon and least with Horses or Snakes.

    Fortunes of the Monkey in Snake Year 2013-14

    Career and business luck is very good for Monkey activities during Snake Year 2013-14. 'Monkey' and 'money' should be literally synonymous as the latter 'rolls in' from such sources. However, Monkey feet should be planted firmly on the ground during this period. Pride should be avoided in favor of patience and humility.

    On the romance front, prospects are poor and incompatibility could be at the heart of relationship problems. In health terms, Monkeys may experience problems with their digestive systems and be prone to injuries from falls.

    The Monkey in Chinese Culture

    The Monkey is the most popular animal in Chinese literature and China realized the truth of Humanity's evolution from the ape thousands of years before Darwin. Monkey-style Martial Arts are based upon the animal's typical fighting moves. Shaolin Temple Monk Xuanzhang (600-664 CE) is the Monkey King utilizing this in Wu Cheng En's famous 13th Century Ming Dynasty novel 'The Journey to the West, Revised Edition, Volume 1 '.
