Today marks the first day of the Chinese New Year and 2016 is the year of the Monkey! The date you were born will determine what the year will bring…

Rabbit: 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951.


When the Rabbit meets the Monkey, the Rabbit will enjoy a year of making new friends, improving old relationships, and powerful networking.

Horse: 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954.


In 2016, the Monkey brings the Horse a chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy their achievements after a lot of hard work. That doesn’t sound too bad.

Tiger: 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950.


When the Tiger meets the Monkey he can expect plenty of challenges ahead. 2016 will be a year full of wisdom and opportunities to learn new things.

Ox (or Cow): 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949.


In 2016 the Monkey is disrupting the Ox’s chilled out life. It’s time for this Ox to accept new challenges; your mantra for this year is, “Go for it.”

Dragon: 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952.


The Monkey brings the Dragon oodles of love, romance, and prosperity in 2016, which is a pretty good combination if you ask us.

Rat: 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1948.


Hooray for Rats! It’s basically YOUR year. You have the Monkey’s blessing, so enjoy one carefree year, go forth, and prosper.

Sheep (or Goat): 2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967, 1955.


The noisy Monkey pushes the shy Sheep into the spotlight, so prepare yourself for action (and don’t worry, you’ll be amazing).

Snake: 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965, 1953.


Sneaky Snakes will spend 2016 caring for others and working hard under the Monkey’s influence. But it’ll pay off — good fortune is coming your way.

Monkey: 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956.


The meeting of two cheeky Monkeys leads to a year full of competition and challenges. Persistence is key.

Rooster: 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945.


The Monkey sees through the Rooster’s brave face and understands that this year there’ll be worry behind his happiness. But don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Dog: 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958, 1946.


Dogs and Monkeys make for energetic partners and, so long as they work hard and take care, Dogs will enjoy the fruits of their labors.

Pig: 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947.


Pigs haven’t got it great in 2016; there are storms ahead, but opportunities too — just remember to look before you leap.
