Monday, February 8th marks the beginning of the Year of the Monkey. In Chinese astrology, those born under the sign of the Monkey are considered to be gregarious and playful, full of energy and humour. At social occasions, they often become the centre of attention. They tend to be very generous, talented, and inclusive. Monkeys are very curious and clever, making them excellent problem-solvers and mediators. Because they are so charming and engaging, it is easy for Monkeys to become famous for whatever talents they possess.
