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. To know the auspicious and challenging Feng Shui sectors of the year, please read: Feng Shui 2016: good & bad directions for the Monkey year.
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.
The fourth sign that we review today is the Rabbit. If you are a Rat, you can read your predictions here. If you are an Ox, your forecast is here. If you are a Tiger, your forecast is here. In this article, the years refer to the Chinese ones. So 2016 = 4th of February 2016 to the 3rd of February 2017.
For people born under the Rabbit sign, the Monkey year is a bit odd and blows hot and cold (great if you are a fan of Katie Perry). On one hand, you will get support for some projects that you care about. Some of your personal initiatives will be rewarded…But you will also need to adapt. It is a year that does not allow for much daydreaming, like you love to: you will have some reality check and need to focus on your reality while still being flexible (something that you often do). You will be able to progress in your career if you compromise and only make your move when the timing is auspicious. The year is not unsupportive but invite you to be in action rather than procrastinate or dream. Here are your predictions.
For love life, Rabbits have interesting prospects. You might have meet someone interesting in 2015 as the year helped you with friendship and meeting. If however you were in a difficult relationship, it might not have passed the year…In 2016 you have good chances of meeting. It is true for Rabbits of both genders. You need to push yourself and not be shy, as you could otherwise miss your chance with someone interesting. Don’t be afraid of the potential differences: if you have the same moral principles, the rest will not separate you both but rather help you to evolve. Rabbits can form surprising couples during the Monkey year, as you are attracted to your opposite. For those of you who are already seeing someone, there is a tendency to find harmony if you communicate clearly and softly about your opinion and feelings. You will also have to find the compromises that work for the both of you.
Your career is an interesting domain for Rabbits this year. You could advance in your career and improve your finances if you grab the opportunities and push yourself. Volunteer to speak in public, go to fairs, network…It is a good year to increase your exposure and to communicate. It is also favourable for job interviews and for changes of work. Like the Rat sign, you can galvanise and also get some funding, or work very well as a team player in 2016. It is a year during which your long-term projects can unfold but you must work steadily and have a long-term vision.
It is a domain a bit more up and down for men and women who are born under the Rabbit sign. You could feel a bit under the weather and not know what to do with your body: eat more or eat less, skip the gym or go like crazy…I’d say that for the Monkey year, you should not skip the gym! You can improve your wellbeing through physical activity, which helps you to channel all the movements happening for your sign. Dance, big walks and everything that makes you sweat and more at ease with your body is favourable. Dare to start sport if you haven’t yet. Be however mindful of your joins that needs support this year: don’t be harsh on yourself but rather gentle and you’ll go far.
