The Monkey has a boost of positive energy with the “Moon of Kindness Star” in their charts. This lovely named star brings valuable opportunities for them to be the benefactor and the source of support. This star helps ease the negative effects of the bad stars and turn it around for the better. It helps resolve obstacles and turns mishaps into good tidings. The positive glow of this moon extends into all aspects of their life.
Therefore, they should first let go of grudges and past hurts. For this moon to truly work its wonders, they first have to do their part. They need to resolve personal or professional issues that have been bugging them for some time. Rather than being vengeful, they should just forgive and trust that some-how the Universe has a way of correcting itself. Participating in volunteer work, adopting a charity or supporting a charitable cause will bring its own unquantifiable rewards.
There is a very kind star called the “Earth Salvation Star” that will nicely rein in all the ups and downs that the Monkey can expect this year. Its presence greatly lessens the downs and helps magnify the ups. Despite some of the bad stars, this star has a way of averting bad luck and downplaying its negative impact. It offers them protection from hazards and helps them turn things around and overcome challenges.
Somehow, if they find themselves in a tight spot during the year, they will be able to figure out a way of getting out of it or a benefactor will appear to lend a helping hand.
The Monkey this year has the “Commander Star,” which means that they will be given the chance to wield their authority. Showing their leadership capabilities and their ability to work with the team will contribute to career progression, promotion, business development, and upgrading of status.
This further strengthens this aspect, they can put the Power & Authority Seals in their office on top of their work desk.
The Monkey should aim for a good work-life balance. Otherwise, it might wear them out and take a toll on their health. The presence of the “Minor Illness Star” is a reminder of that. There are potential health threats that if caught in time, will only have minor change, although if not careful it could turn into a long-term issue. This especially holds true for those are traveling overseas.
It will be good for older Horses to have a Brass Longevity Peach on their bedside table.
The Monkey should also remember to keep watch of their expenses. Spending and being generous is okay as long as it is within reason. The “Small Drain Star” denotes that as the money flows in, and it also has a way of flowing out unnecessarily. Groceries, electric bills, and mobile phone expenses are considered regular expenses, but having a drain on one’s finances means there are high chances of having unnecessary expenditures. For example, a monthly water bill is expected, but if they are not mindful of the pipes and leaks in their plumbing, then this water bill could be bigger than it should be.
This means that they should not take risks when it comes to their wealth. They should set budgets for themselves and be prudent with their spending. Resist the urge for impulse spending and seek advice from those in the know on how to manage their wealth. They could look into investing their surplus in future yielding products. Do the right research and background checks to avoid getting scammed. Be extra mindful of spending when traveling and try to not overstretch.
One approach to this help subdue the energy of this “Small Drain Star” would be to invest in a house or buy something that they have longed for as a way of preempting it. Another way is to donate to a charitable cause.
Having a Fat Fat Wealth Enhancer inside their safe/vault will be good to help let the money stay.
If the Monkey is not careful, then the “Robbery Star” that is also dominant in their chart may rear its ugly head. This star brings with it the energy of losing something. It could be losing money, losing belongings/valuables, losing face, losing reputation, losing close friends/allies, losing health, or losing one’s peice of mind. This star invites nothing but trouble. Therefore, they have to be very discerning as to who they allow to get close to them and as to whom they will put their trust and confidence in. Better to go with the tried and tested and go with those who stuck it out with them when times were rough. It is also good to consider availing of travel insurance or investing in insurance of the home and other assets if they have not yet done so.
To help minimize the ill effects of this star, it will be good to adopt a charitable cause or organization that they can support throughout this year. They should also pay special attention to home safety and personal safety. It will be a good year to invest in CCTVs for the home and office. It will also do them well to consult a professional or friends who are experts in the field before getting into any business venture or before launching into a new investment.
It will be good for them to put a Hippo Guard in their homes to help protect them.
