between noon and 5:00pm for Selfie with a Little Red Monkey, a Chinese New Year
celebration with cultural activities for children including red envelope and
Chinese character drawings.
Monkeys will be busy with their careers or hobbies so they may not find much
time to indulge In romance, so they are advised to take time out and spend
quality time with their loved ones. Single monkeys are advised to be patient. A
successful relationship is possible, but only if it is not forced and happens
naturally. They have the potential for unexpected wealth and abundance,
although they should be wary of becoming too greedy. However, there are a few
unlucky stars, so they are advised to be cautious and rest whenever possible.
This year they need to pay attention to who they can trust and put things in
place to balance their lifestyle so they relax, recuperate and rest more.
Whenever anything goes wrong this year, just remember to remain optimistic,
keep smiling, show kindness and be sincere when making amends and any
difficulties will very quickly be rectified.
