The Yang Fire Monkey year started on the 4th of February for the solar calendar: the 8th of February is for the lunar start. It is therefore the right time to see what the year has in store for your sign of birth, based on the Chinese Zodiac. In this series of 12 articles I will explore with you the forecast and predictions that are based on your birth sign for your 2016 horoscope. This is different from analyzing your complete Bazi.
The Yang Fire Monkey year will be agitated and eventful. For my analysis of the 5 Elements at work, the economic and society forecast, please read this article : The complete Chinese astrology predictions for 2016, year of the Fire Monkey.

For the 12 Signs of Chinese astrology, it is a very different year from 2015 that was the Yin Wood Goat year. While 2015 was all about Earth and Wood Elements, 2016 is a clash between Fire, Metal and Water. These energies represent money opportunities for some and good prospect for single people of some signs. For others, it is all about professional changes and duties and not a very fun year. Let’s see what the situation is sign by sign.
Before reading your predictions, keep in mind that the animal of your year is not the whole picture. Your full chart can balance those influences and in some case reverse them or make them worse. For a start, all of us have 4 animals rather than one: year, month, day and time of birth…and after our 40ies the year is of milder influence. The sign of your year of birth is a very general weather forecast, and your Bazi is your very own local climate and tendencies. And so I invite you to now order a Skype, face to face or written Bazi/Four Pillars of destiny consultation to get to know your personal dynamics for the whole year and month by month and have an easier year that will manifest better opportunities for work, money and love.

We finish our 12 signs predictions for 2016 with the Pig sign, which should have an interesting year. It is a bit unstable for you, Pigs. Expect some opposition: people will disagree with you and will let you know. You could also be disappointed with people’s behaviour. Overall, you will have a lot to deal with and it will be tiring. However, if you accept the challenges of this year and go for it, and if you let behind your natural shyness and discreet attitude, you could be noticed and score in your career. Travels could be a highlight of the year: a year off is ideal in 2016 for the Pig, but it could also take the form of a house move or professional move. Let’s now see how the different aspects of your life will unfold.
For love, the Monkey year blows hot and cold on the Pig. You could meet someone but also experience a lot of frustrations. Expect to deal with undecided people who love you one day, not so much the next. Emotionally, it could be upsetting. A word of advice: relax, take it easy and don’t put any pressure on the person you want to be with. Be available but not demanding. Maybe a friend with benefit type of situation, without too many strings, could be the right dynamics for you at the moment. If you are caught into a love triangle, stay zen and don’t force the events as it would backfire. Generally speaking, keep your cool and take the events with some detachment. For couples, some misunderstanding could occur and a flawless communication is essential. Ask yourself if what you have to say is necessary, true and nice, and have the same demand toward your partner to avoid arguments.
It is an auspicious area of your life in 2016. You could, with steady work and willingness to do so, move up in your career. Financially the year can be good if you know when to react to opportunities that other people overlook. Work constantly and put on the side: it is not a year for big expenses and investments ideally. Expect to sometimes hit a wall and have to make a U-turn, especially if you are an entrepreneur. Your clients and providers could be less reliable, but your income should progress. If you are an employee, you have less control on your fate this year: it is not ideal to negotiate and I would recommend keeping a low profile actually. Your advice will not always be welcomed and best is to put your ego asides…A professional or personal move could be in the cards. If you are looking for work, it is a bit more complicated. Strikes of luck are possible, but you will have to be a team player and not selfish to be hired. Your originality is not necessarily what I would push this year, if I were you. Show your willingness to work with other and humility and your time will come eventually.
A bit like work, it is average with some pros. If you are a control freak, you are not going to like this year. You should lead the fights that you can win and drop the rest…As nit-pickers will be plenty this year. Like with your love life, try to focus on lighter aspects and take it easy. You can have short terms goals and have a bit of fun in the meantime. Don’t be too serious and avoid giving yourself impossible aims to reach, impossible tasks to achieve. This year help you to communicate for your wellbeing and so it can be great for improvisation, theatre, singing, making music that should all be very balancing to you. Go at your own pace and don’t force your body. Above all, avoid the tendency to be harsh and judgmental on yourself, as better years are coming. This one is a minor note, but we need some of those to make a great concerto. You will come back stronger and wiser next year.
