The person born in the Year of the Monkey is a prankster and mischievous!
The Monkey Zodiac Sign appears next in 2016.
However expect plenty of fun in 2013 from the Monkey person.
What do you think of when you think of a monkey?
I think of an animal that is always “fooling around” – being mischievous and playing jokes on others.
The monkey is a practical joker. That is why we have the term “monkeying around”.
Watch out in 2013 for the people of the Year of the Monkey.
They will be fun to be around - lots of jokes and pranks.
Are you a monkey?
Is your partner a monkey?
Let's have a look at the Monkey person.
The monkey person tends to be a mischievous practical joker who likes fun and “mucking around” according to Chinese astrology.
This can be an enduring trait to some as they enjoy that person’s lighter attitude to life. But it can be annoying to others particularly where a more serious approach is wanted.
So in the year of 2013, Monkey people should be aware of this and learn when, and when not to "monkey" around.
The monkey animal is quite an intelligent animal.
After all, we are descended from the apes!
So people born under this Chinese Zodiac sign are intelligent and often end up as professionals (except those who can’t control their natural instinct to be mischievous!).
Therefore in 2013, aspiring professionals should be a little careful about silly behaviour which could harm their chances.
Monkeys are energetic animals – always on the move, running around or swinging from tree to tree.
Thus the person born under this Chinese Zodiac sign has lots of energy and is always doing things.
Monkeys are inquisitive animals.
You might have seen a monkey scampering around but then stopping and examining something they have found or seen.
Thus the person born in the Year of the Monkey is inquisitive by nature and likes to know things – it ties in with their intelligence.
However the monkey animal will quickly abandon something if they lose interest.
For example, a monkey finds something on the ground and picks it up. It quickly discards it and moves on if it has no interest.
So, the monkey person can be fickled – starting something like a project but losing interest and moving on if it does not completely absorb them.
The Monkey person is intelligent.
Humans are descended from monkeys. The human brain has evolved from the monkey brain.
Mankind's intelligence has evolved from the monkey's.
