Year of the Yang Fire Monkey


The beginning of the end started with an email newsletter about the Chinese New Year…YEAR OF THE YANG FIRE MONKEY…

Interestingly enough, I was born in the year of the monkey, and I’m a yang fire person:

“A Yang Fire type person is honest, open-hearted, optimistic, radiates joy, hope, warmth and love. However, they can sometimes be fierce, quick tempered, straight-forward speakers who say exactly what they feel or is on their minds, without much filter. A Yang Fire person feels their emotions deeply both good and bad. In general, a person born in a Yang Fire year will be noticed; often the center of attention.”

I found this fascinating and I reached out to the author, who explained the following:

The Monkey is one of the 3 animals forming a dangerous configuration or clash called “Three Penalty.” This includes the Monkey, the Tiger, and the Snake and together they will generate strong fire elements.

People with this clash may make dramatic changes (such as a job change or move). These can be quite positive opportunities, too! This year it is recommended that a person with a clash carries the pendant of a Snake which will help deflect the Monkey and, therefore, minimizing the negative influence of the clash.

The Monkey resides in the Southwest and is the seasonal birth of the water element. The image is the sun setting in the west and the water helps to temper the fire.

The Monkey is also known as a ‘Traveling Horse.’ This year will bring more opportunities to travel and is good for tourism/hospitality.

Given the set of circumstances both professionally and personally, I took her recommendation to wear a snake pendant.

The pendant arrived at the end of my sickness…and with it, transformed everything.

My health turned the corner…

I consulted with the author to do more work. She said I was coming into great fortune, and that I would meet my mate this year (which caused me to pause, since CA and I were still dating)…I had 2 places to move my bed for good luck:

I could move the head of my bed to the East wall, facing west. This would lead to discovering my mate more quickly.

I felt like vomiting, so I asked what my other option was.

She said I could the head of my bed to the South wall, facing north, in the Southwest corner of the room. This was the wall of financial good fortune.

I chose that wall!

I went through the apartment and slowly applied everything she recommended, except for the water features…my fear being feeding the water when I’m gone…I might have to get over that fear sooner rather than later.

I Am Sagittarius –

In a somewhat feeble attempt to get to know the inner workings of myself, I sought the assistance of astrology – I represent my sign quite well. There is no denying that I am a Sagittarius!

Sagittarius Keywords:

  1. Independence
  2. Unemotional
  3. Adventurous
  4. Creative

Sagittarius in a Nutshell:

Sagittarius seem to be guided by luck. Good things happen to Sagittarius, and this is usually because of their optimistic outlook and positive disposition which attracts good fortune.

Despite hardships, Sagittarius is always optimistic that good things will happen tomorrow, and the future carries good luck.

Sagittarius have a vibrant, expansive personality that is free like a bird, and a Sagittarius cannot be contained. They are full of curiosity and they always look forward to the future, never dwelling on the past.

Sagittarius are detached from emotions because emotions hold a person back. They do not like to talk about their feelings; they simply experience them and move on.

Sagittarius can be reckless and irresponsible because they will jump at a suggestion of something new before they weigh the advantages and disadvantages.

What it’s Like to Date a Sagittarius Woman:

She has a great attitude and always seems to be on the go. Sagittarius woman is for the man with lots of energy and creativity.

She likes unconventionality and change, so whisk her away last second to somewhere unplanned and uncharted and she will remember you forever.

In order for her to stay, you have to keep her happy. If she gets unhappy or bored, she won’t bother to fix any problems… She will just walk out and never look back.

Fortunately, it is not that difficult to keep her happy. Be her friend. She does not take love too seriously anyway. If you are her companion, love will blossom after that.

Let her have her freedom. Flirt with her and take the relationship slowly. Do not rush her.

Be truthful, genuine, positive and adventurous and never play mind games.

The lucky man will not only have a wonderful fun relationship but an adventurous companion as well.

Sex With Sagittarius:

Sagittarius like to explore, and it is the same with their sexual encounters. They are the people most likely to have outdoor sex or risque sex encounters.

They are champions of one-night-stands because it feels good and they don’t have to worry about the other person being clingy afterwards!

With Sagittarius, anything goes. The squeamish and conservative need not apply!

Sagittarius and Independence:

Independence is Sagittarius’ principle. They crave adventure and excitement and embrace change. Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher and the explorer. They will go as far as the road will take them and explore everywhere for eternal wisdom.

Freedom is extremely important to a Sagittarius, and they will actually make decisions based on the amount of freedom that is given to them by that choice. As a result, if a good opportunity requires a high commitment, it might be missed.

Sagittarius and Friendship:

Sagittarius have encouraging, positive natures. They do not expect favors in return. Their kindness is selfless. They do not interfere with other people’s plans, and they are not possessive or jealous. They treat others the way they want to be treated. They adhere to a ‘live and let live’ policy, which makes them so agreeable.

Sagittarius are excellent conversationalists with a good sense of humor, sometimes their humor is the raw truth, but these people speak their mind and don’t hold anything back. What they say is what they mean.

They do not like mind games. They like straightforwardness and expect it in return. Sagittarius get along with just about everybody. The only people that might not get along with them are people that live by a daily agenda with a highly structured, organized life. They are likely to always be running late and miss a date, but they not do these things on purpose. This is just who they are. If you understand this and accept this, having a Sagittarius in your life will make the sun shine a lot brighter.

Sagittarius and Business:

Sagittarius are born entertainers. They have no shortage of ideas due to their adventurous lifestyle and exciting life experiences. They make excellent storytellers, comedians, writers, philosophers and actors to name a few.

Actually Sagittarius are suited to anything as long as it does not tie them down with too much commitment.

They like to make the world a better place, and a career that will do that is well suited for Sagittarius.

However, they do not like the fine details and mundane day to day routine. This bores them, so they tend to procrastinate and let someone else deal with the details.

They perform very well in business matters, but they are at their best when it is crunch time. If now is the time for all or nothing, and there is a great deal at stake, they can get anything done.

Crisis brings out the best in Sagittarius. They perform their best under pressure.

Sagittarius and Temperament:

Sagittarius are not emotional moody people. In fact, they can be downright emotionally detached, but they do get irritable when they are bored.

Sagittarius is optimistic and positive, even deep inside because they believe that no matter what has happened, something good is always around the corner and the sun will always shine again.

Sagittarius Deep Inside:

Sagittarius is a well-adjusted person with no emotional problems holding them back. They just want to explore the world and not fret about emotions and feelings.

Others may be hurt by their lack of commitment, but they don’t care. That’s not why they are on this planet. They are here to gain wisdom, learn and explore.

Sagittarius has problems finishing some projects they start if it takes too long because they want immediate results. This is not because of laziness. Sagittarius are far from lazy. This motivation to move is due to their hatred of boredom.

Boredom is their fear, and instead of facing it, they will up and leave in search of something more stimulating.

Sagittarius are not emotional people, but they are easily hurt by a careless selfish action. They can be sad but turn it around pretty quickly with their naturally sunny disposition. They don’t dwell on hurt because it is a waste of their energy.
