Year of the Monkey 2016 predictions for Techies


Your Year of the Monkey 2016 predictions are in!

It’s the epic start of the Year of the Monkey! 2016 predictions point to wealth and abundance. Go to your sign to know what to look for this year.  

The Chinese New Year means new beginnings, and those beginnings can come in all sorts of shapes depending on where you fall in the Chinese Zodiac. We’ve broken it all down for you to make it easier for your to excel at whatever you are passionate about this year. Read on only if you want to have your most productive year ever!

Born in 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.

2016 is literally your year- the year of the Monkey. According to the Five Elements Chinese Horoscope, you thrive on competition and challenge…and you also gravitate toward metal and water (which makes sense considering how much you’re coveting that new Android device you keep reading about.) Gadgets make you go bananas, especially if they’re made of gold. The Monkey is “naughty” so when a friend hands you their vacation pictures, it’s a guarantee you’ll swipe too far…and like it. Think twice before you leap this year and adversity will peel away and become opportunity.




Born in 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

The great news for you is that the Rat and the Monkey go together like linux and open source.

This year, you’ll be given opportunities for new apps, shiny upgrades to life and work, and maybe even romance! You should sink your teeth into some online shopping in 2016: you’ll probably find some killer deals on Amazon and Ebay. Keep your whiskers alert for the chance to try new things. And remember: the year of the Monkey 2016 predictions are opportunities – you also need to be willing to take risks to win big.

Your go-to element is water, which is connected to wisdom. You may encounter obstacles but remember to swim through them and keep calm as you progress onto the other side. It’s worth it.



Born in 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

It’s the year of the Monkey and that means action, but action without patience can lead to chaos. The Cow is slow, yes, but it’s also calm and stable.

This year you can combine both animal signs to create something incredible (think computer + feature phone = smartphone.) This year is a great time to build relationships and milk your challenges into gallons of opportunities. Sure, you might struggle, but that’s okay. Recharge your batteries and keep at it!






Born in 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

Since the dawn of time, the Monkey & Tiger have been in opposition. Think Android & iOS:  each has its own strengths & nuances depending on the app and context. You’ll face many challenges this year. According to Chinese horoscopes, the Tiger’s elements are mostly wood. The monkey is connected to metal and water: metal cuts wood but water promotes growth, so be vigilant and take risks with ease and awareness. This year will be challenging but you have the experience and tenacity to rise above it. And you’re a tiger…so that’s cool!





Born in 1951, 1962, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

If you’re a rabbit, this year you will experience great abundance! The rabbit is connected to grass, or vines, and while the Monkey is connected to wind, if you build a strong foundation, the wind will increase your influence in 2016 by exposing you and others to greater seeds of opportunity. Your 24 karat smile never goes unnoticed. Some rabbits have a tendency to hide underground when adversity strikes, though if you resist the impulse to bounce away from challenges and keep your eyes focused, this year you’ll experience great opportunities for wealth.




Born in 1951, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

The great and mighty Dragon is like your favorite Reddit thread: you never know where it will end up, and it will probably get a little fiery with flame wars. The dragon is a symbol of power in China. Dragons are seen wherever they feel like being – the sky, the ground, and even underwater, so make sure your mobile device is rocking the best underwater case money can buy, as you’ll need it for your adventures in 2016. The Monkey and Dragon both love power and talent so this year you’ll have a few chances to increase your income. Be sure to take chances.




Born in 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

This year, remember to be alert and ready to strike when new relationships, wealth, and health opportunities draw you out of your home. Snakes are often misunderstood because of their association with fire, but don’t let that deter you: fire and metal are an incredible combo for alchemy. The Monkey respects metal so it will respect you too. Pay attention to how you feel in cold-blooded business or group situations and you will adapt to your environment with precision. To avoid procrastination, learn to shed your old ways and upgrade to the latest version of yourself.




Born in 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

As a horse, you can lead a monkey to wealth, but keep in mind that Monkey is connected to metal and metal can be slightly stiff when it comes to adapting to circumstances. As a fire sign though, you have the ability to work with the Monkey to create wealth in seemingly empty mines. If you open a business this year, partner with Monkey for resources, and be ready to saddle up and provide the muscle to carry you both across valleys and desserts. Fire is connected to civilization and intelligence, so use that intelligence to upgrade your devices and to gallop full speed into 2016.




Born in 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

Everyone loves you, little bo Sheep, for your light heartedness, cleverness and wit. Your place in the rotation is associated with summer and production, so we recommend you look into some productivity boosting apps to make sure you’re making the most out of your year. Sheep also have a tendency to lose their way, so make sure your phone (and its GPS feature) is always within arm’s reach.





Born in 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005

Rise and shine, Rooster. You like to go do your own thing, and you certainly don’t trust Monkey’s opinion on new gadgets. Maybe shiny new tech isn’t for you this year, so instead you should focus on bettering yourself in the kitchen and expanding your fashion. Take up Pinterest for finding new recipes, or maybe consider signing up for a subscription food service. If you’re looking for fashion help, there are loads of great apps out there for Android to keep you up to date on the hottest trends.





Born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

The Dog is known for its loyalty, but when you combine with Monkey, it becomes the sign of education and instruction. Use this year to learn a new skill or language, then do your best to impart your new knowledge on your friends and family. Take a free class on MIT Online, learn to code, or check out Rosetta Stone to master a new language. The other connection between Dog and Monkey is that of new fortune, all the more reason to learn a new marketable skill this year.





Born in 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007

The year of the Monkey can mean many things for the Pig; one of them is wealth, so there’s the good news. The bad news is that it can also mean loss of property, so make sure your information is secure online. The Pig is also connected to water, so protect yourself from loss even more by investing in a waterproof case for your smartphone.





We hope you’ve enjoyed our Year of the Monkey 2016 predictions for techies! Ultimately, it’s up to YOU to build the life you want for yourself. Now, go forth and be the best version of yourself this year, you animal, you.
