Year of the Monkey


“The monkey is known for being very intelligent and clever,” explains Laura Lau, author of The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes, calling it “one of the most innovative personalities within the zodiac.” These are common personality traits of people born under this sign, but they’re also thematic to the Year of the Monkey overall. As the monkey imbues the year with its quick wit, curiosity, and, as Lau stresses, its resourcefulness, it becomes a “year of reinvention in a lot of ways…a very energetic year and an auspicious one.” ~Refinery29
