The Merry Monkey

These are fun and loving people who are always cheerful and energetic. They are very clever. Give a monkey a boring book to read and he'll turn it into a musical. Better yet, he'll invite everyone to see it free! That's how talented, creative and generous monkeys usually are.

If you go to a party, you'll find monkeys at the center of attention. Their charm and humor is the key to their popularity. They appear sociable and diplomatic but can be deceptive and hide their private opinions of others beneath their friendliness. But they don't hide their emotions. You can tell how a monkey is feeling from miles away - he wants everyone to know how happy or depressed he is.

Monkey people are very good at problem solving. Wherever you are, whoever you may be, if you've got a problem pick up the phone and dial-a-monkey. Monkeys know how to listen closely and work out solutions. Curious creatures, monkeys have a great thirst for knowledge. Still they have few scruples, they can be unreasonable at times, and they have the ability to delude themselves and everyone around them into believing that they are doing the right thing. Some say monkeys are self-centered, some say they are opportunistic, some say they are guileful, but monkeys couldn't care less - because they are also indifferent.

Most monkeys have one fetish - FOOD. They are not pigs, they don't stuff themselves with food, instead, they just have this habit of eating snacks whenever they like, and wherever they like. And one last truth about monkey people is, they adore bananas. Go and visit your monkey friend's kitchen, I bet you will find some bananas there.

The monkey has a good chance of becoming famous or well-known. Whatever he does, his charm and luck will make him successful. As friends, monkeys are both loyal and devoted. As lovers, monkeys can be passionate yet flighty - they can fall easily in love but will get tired of the relationship and look for another. The best match for a monkey is a rat or another monkey. Good matches are a tiger, pig, ox, or rabbit. Ok matches are a rooster, dog, sheep, or snake. A horse match is not advised.
