Fire Monkey

2016 Year of the FIre Monkey.
Symbolized by fire sitting on metal.

Keywords: Anger Management, Health & Illness, Female Authority, Travel.
Optimism & Confidence, Innovation & Activity, Chaos and Creation.
This year needs a sense of humor!

2016 In General:
Female energy dominates (8 star in the SW), whilst male energy suffers from short tempers (3 star in the NW), which may impact personal relationships, business and politics very negatively if left unchecked!

Politics - World Stage:
Kim Jong Il of North Korea (a fire energy person), may well be badly behaved this year which does not bode well for peace and stability which is already on the brink of disaster regarding the chess game being played over the control of Syria between the USA, Russia and their respective allies. Yes there will be more conflict and violence but it can be resolved more easily than previous years, despite the abundance of short tempers in 2016. The economy and stock market are optimistic, but unbalanced and unstable, with potential for an awful global financial/stock market collapse/correction.

FYI: Hilary Clinton was born on a Tiger day and the Chinese astrological sign that will have the most challenging year, will be the Tiger, suffering from bad health, relationship conflict and serious misfortune.

Serious Health Problems:
2016 is a very bad year for health as the 2 sickness star resides in the center. Expect serious, prolonged or unusual/new illness, airborne/contagious sickness, and many, many untimely deaths. Fire indicates blood circulation and blood pressure, heart and inflammation problems. Metal relates to the lungs and the skin and indicates flu virus pandemic (December and January already saw a global virus with a cough that lasted three weeks plus), and skin problems such as hives and rashes. 2016 is imperative to focus on health and wellness, and a good year for exercise and weight loss.

FYI: Liquid vitamin C is important to include in your diet this year.

Relationships will bring up issues of trust, ego, trickery, betrayal, mind games, promiscuity, inhibition.
Entertainment, Glamour and Technology
will enjoy a wonderful year.
Travel is highly favourable in 2016, especially for Tiger, Horse and Dog people, also Rabbit, Pig and Sheep.
Disasters: Explosions, nuclear issues, fire, traffic accidents, air and sea disaster/conflict.
Children's safety and well-being will continue to be in danger thru 2024.

WATER 2016:

Indoor water features (moving water), such as fountain or aquarium, ok in SE for 2016.

FYI: Yin water is motionless (vase), Yang water is moving (fountain, aquarium).

plant TIPS for Feng Shui 2016:

1) Colors of the year are blue and black, since water element is lacking, year is very off balance, and male emotion prone to volatility.

Red colors invite passion, ok in moderation otherwise energy becomes incitive of strong, controlling negative emotion.
Pink and orange invites romance, whilst purple is a blend of red and blue.
Fire Monkey favours gold (as opposed to silver).

2) Water
element is important this year as it tones down fire energy.
Keep all water fresh and sparkling clean to prevent misfortune and affairs.

3) Anyone that has a dragon and phoenix statue or image may choose to place it in the West or SW for 2016. Other locations are ok, but not the center or the NE.

4) If your front door is located in the North, South, SW or NE, place a pair of Fu Dogs there as protective guardians against all negative energies.

5) Salt water cures may be used in the Center (2 star) and the NE (5 star) this year. A super clean bowl of undisturbed water may be used instead, but the water must be changed often, left undisturbed, and remain clean and clear.

SW 8
Wealth, success, prosperity, romance, female energy - WEST 4 Romance, travel, study, creativity, children - SE 1 Achievement, victory, touch of romance - SOUTH 6 Career, leadership, reputation - EAST Growth, celebration, family relationships.

NE 5
Severe misfortune - CENTER 2 Illness, unusual/new sickness, disease, contagious/airborne illness, accidents.
Violence, robbery, abuse, deceit, scandal - NW 3 Nasty conflict, hostility, short temper, lawsuits, finances, male energy.


a) If you believe indoor water features appear to be having a negative effect, remove.
b) If any section appears negative, re-evaluate - tone down, remove or add other elements/colors.
c) If you know how, check the natal flying star birth chart of your home, for conflict with annual visiting flying stars.

FYI Elements and Colors:

1) You do NOT have to buy strange Asian objects to activate or remedy your home - simply use the elements/objects you already have. However, having said that, there are five Asian objects we personally like which can be used every year:

Metal Pagoda - Rhino/Elephant - 6 Rod Wind Chime - Metal Gourd - Pi Yao.

a) The Five Element Metal Pagoda - to protect against the nasty 5 earth star - 2016 in NE.
b) A blue rhino and blue elephant - to protect against the 7 metal violence and robbery star - 2016 in North.
c) 6 rod metal outdoor wind chime - to protect against the 2 earth illness star and the nasty 5 earth star - 2016 Center and NE.
d) Metal gourd, known as a Wu Lou, which protects against the 2 earth illness star - 2016 in Center.
e) Pi Yao for protection - treat him as a pet and face him from SW towards NE in 2016 - if you have two Pi Yao, place the other in NE facing SW.

Every year - which begins in February - cleanse your objects by washing them in cold, salt water, and then allow them to dry in the sun for a few hours. Then, place the objects in the appropriate area for the new feng shui year.

2) Elements are stronger than colors - e.g. water is stronger than color blue, fire is stronger than color red, etc.
3) Be careful using fire and water elements! - they are very powerful energies and if placed incorrectly will block your intentions or create havoc.
4) For colors, use rugs, throws, towels, curtains, cushions, bedding, candles, lampshades, etc.
5) NO water in bedrooms ever! - including fountains, aquariums, water scenes, etc.
6) No fire/candles in NW ever!

How to neutralize or activate element energy.
