Monkey Lunar New Year

Coach Blog 020816 year of the fire monkey Today is the start of a new Lunar year. In Chinese astrology, it is a Fire Monkey year. I’m more familiar with western astrology, and the Monkey corresponds to the western sign of Leo.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about the fire monkey: “With his Fire energy, this agile, impulsive Monkey often leaps where angels fear to tread. This reckless behavior sometimes turns out to not be to the Fire Monkey’s advantage. However, he is very creative, dynamic, and has a particularly good talent at drawing people to him – this often helps him get out of scrapes. He’ll leap from tree to tree – whichever has the most fruit at the time – then find the quickest, cleverest escape before others get to him. In general though, the Fire Monkey is flamboyant and charmingly friendly, and has a large social circle.”

This energy fits well with my February theme of leaping forward. I’m not a big risk-taker, so I always look before I leap, but maybe I can let the fire monkey inspire me and be a little more impulsive.

Consider how you fit with the Fire Monkey energy, or Leo energy if that’s more familiar to you – is it a natural state or a challenge for you? Can you learn something from him to help you on your path? How would the Fire Monkey deal with a challenge you’re facing right now?
