Year Of The Monkey
The monkey ranks ninth of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. Each year is related to an animal sign according to a 12-year-cycle. Years of the Monkey include 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, and 2028.
The year of one’s birth sign is believed to be the most unlucky in the 12-year cycle. Monkeys (who take Chinese astrology seriously) are particularly careful about their health, love lives, career, and investments in Monkey years.
The next Monkey year is 2016, but it doesn’t start on January 1! Chinese Zodiac years are according to the Chinese lunar calendar, starting and ending at Chinese New Year. People born in January or February should take particular note of when Chinese New Year falls to confirm their birth sign.
