Chinese Zodiac: Monkey

2012 Fortune by Chinese Zodiac Sign

By

Several factors are used in Chinese fortune telling to determine a person’s fortune. Knowing your zodiac sign, element and predisposition (hot, cold, or neutral) are all used to determine your fortune. Consulting a Chinese almanac like 2012 Chinese Almanac by Peter So (ISBN 978-988-1905-6-9) or a fortune teller will help you find a detailed, more personal fortune.

The 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle also includes a corresponding element; therefore, it takes 60 years to complete an entire zodiac cycle. Each Chinese zodiac sign has a general 2011 fortune plus an additional 2012 fortune based on the person’s birth year. All months referenced refer to the lunar month.

Monkeys are likely to:

  • Get help from powerful figures afar.
  • Have better luck at wealth.
  • Enjoy better social status.
  • Get caught up in gossip.

Your additional fortune by birth year is:

1932: You have chances to learn and invest.
1944: You’ll work hard for your money 1956: You don't feel like working hard and take the easy way out.
1968: You will enjoy better social status and get ahold of more power.
1980: You have luck with wealth.
