Monkey Career

You are also likely to be curious and enthusiastic, both fantastic traits for a potential employee!
  • Someone born in the Year of the Monkey may also be an idealist; this could mean that, unless they are deeply stimulated, monkeys will always be looking for something that will suit them better.

Monkey Horoscope

  • Those born under the sign of the monkey may be feeling particularly ambitious this year, especially in terms of career. Look out, though - this year may not be a good one to change jobs. Think about waiting it out until next year before you make any big decisions. 
  • In terms of romance, 2016 is going to be a good year for the monkey. Your romantic relationships will be stable and happy; you just have to remember to be patient with your loved ones and not let minor disagreements derail you. 
  • If you are a monkey born in 2004, you may be feeling a little rebellious this year. It might be worthwhile to think about putting some of that rebellious, frustrated energy towards getting exercise and keeping your body healthy.
