Get to know more about The Year of the Monkey!
As the Year of The Sheep heads off to greener pastures, the Year of the Monkey swings into place on February 8, 2016 thru January 27, 2017.
Incidentally, the Monkey is the ninth sign of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac and the Universal Number for 2016 (2+0+1+6) is also 9. Depending on circumstances, nine can be either an extremely lucky or quite unlucky number; however, it does carry the power of Three (3), which is one of the ancient "magic” or “sacred" numbers.
Monkey years are always leap years in the Gregorian calendar, with 2016 being no exception! And while the Gregorian calendar adds an extra day, the Chinese calendar adds an extra month. Also, Monkey years are also all multiples of 12 — from 12 AD and 1200 AD, all the way through today in 2016.
Basically, this is a year where individual efforts reap their just rewards, so what are you waiting for?
