Gung hei fat choy!

Today begins the Year of the Wood (or Green) Monkey, lunar year 4702 of the Chinese calendar. A year of movement, discussion and the exchange of ideas. A year highlighting politicians, diplomats, ambassadors, writers, spokesmen, storytellers, orators, salesmen, and confidence games.

Those born in the Year of the Monkey tend to be witty, curious, clever and crafty. They are outgoing, and always looking for new, different, and stimulating things. If you are a Monkey, you are probably the jokester in the crowd, and a wee bit mischievous at times!

Some astrological predictions for the folks at fredshouse [via chineseastrology.com]:

The Frugal Rat - The "Concealed Charmer" A much better year ahead in 2004 as the Rat and Monkey are the best of friends. Unstable but dynamic, the Monkey year emboldens Rats and this year's journey may resemble more of a hazardous adventure rather than a picnic. The eclectic Rat's imagination (both positive and negative) runs wild during Monkey years and moderation is critical. All in all, a great year.

The Entertaining Monkey - The "Merry Mercurial"
While a lively year of good times, good friends, and lack of boredom, only rarely are your own Monkey years constructive and capable of permanent development. Monkeys have difficulty staying on a straight and narrow course, tempted to take detours and short-cuts for the pure pleasure of discovery and novelty. However, you do find the year's prevalent upheaval amusing, and will have a strong desire for travel.

The Creative Ram - The "Good Samaritan"
An extremely restless year of gaiety and fantasy, but events in Monkey years happen too quickly for the Ram. While Rams and Monkeys are essentially good friends, the self-assured Monkey tweaks insecurity in the Ram and tends to leave them feeling left in the background. A high risk of throwing out the baby with the bathwater, as Ram souls risk excesses and emotional problems with their immediate family.

And a word about marital bliss...

Monkey & Rat - Very compatible together. Highly successful union. Have deep and strong affinity for one another. Will find love and contentment.

Happy New Year 4702!
