What Does the Year of the Monkey Have In Store For You?

Monday, February 8, 2016 begins the Lunar New Year. It’s the Year of the Fire Monkey, also called the Year of the Red Monkey.

Chinese astrologists tell us it looks like it’s going to be an unpredictable year, though not necessarily in a bad way. They tell us there’s no sense in planning too elaborately this year, because things are constantly in flux.

The Year of the Red Monkey is supposed to be a strong year for humor and communication. And it’s looking like a good year for business, but here’s the key to remember:

Daring to be different can lead to success.

If you’ve read any of my books, you’ve no doubt come across someone who thinks that way. It reminds me especially of Willa Carson, and seems like advice Jess Kimball should take to heart this year on her continued quest to bring her kidnapped son home.

There’s a heavy emphasis on mental energy this year. So heavy, in fact, that everyone should put extra effort into physical fitness. Watching your diet and exercising are recommended.

Look out for people who are trying to trick you, and make decisions this year based on facts, not feelings. Might be a good time to read Fatal Demand, as inspiration to fuel the fight against the con man.

For more personal predictions, you’ll need to figure out your Chinese animal sign. I’m a dragon, which is great! This is supposed to be my lucky year! Jordan Fox, the star of my mystery serial False Truth, is a rooster. For a rooster, the red monkey year holds excitement and adventure. Just what she doesn’t need, right?! Maybe that means this is the year she’ll get the break she needs in solving the cold case of her mother’s murder.

What’s your Chinese animal sign? What does the year of the red monkey hold for you?

    Thanks for the heads-up about the need to put extra effort into physical fitness this year. I always have it listed as a goal but it manages to sink to the bottom!

    My sign:
    Rooster: Shrewd, honest, communicative, motivated, punctual

    Not too sure about “shrewd” but the rest is close.
