Lainey Gossip's Year of the Rooster Predictions for Monkeys

In Chinese astrology, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster. With a little help from her ma, our columnist Elaine Lui tells you what’s in store

There’s a very bright star shining on those born under the Monkey sign. The star will enhance your charm, attracting a lot of attention—it’s a good outlook for love and friendship. Basically Monkeys are popular in the Year of the Rooster.

There is also, however, a dark star that will shadow the Monkey this year that could distract you, might make you lose focus. Monkeys can sometimes be too greedy, never satisfied. This dark star will exploit that and while its power will be muted by that bright star in your life, the bright star won’t be around forever. So Monkeys are advised to be mindful. A lack of appreciation for what you have can be a deterrent to good luck.

1944 Monkeys should mind their health. Don’t push yourself too hard. And you’re on Love Triangle alert. Watch out for temptation and infidelity, on your part.

1956 Monkeys may be assisted by many benefactors this year. And your partner could be a big asset.

1968 Monkeys are encouraged to explore new learning opportunities, prioritize self-improvement. This will pay off, maybe not immediately, but there will be a future yield.

For 1980 Monkeys, a promotion and/or a raise is possible. But you must be careful of injury and be extra cautious his year.

1992 Monkeys may have new career opportunities.

For parents of 2004 Monkeys, you might want to pay closer attention because of the Monkey’s popularity this year—new young romances could lead to new dramas.

In February and March, all Monkeys are advised to stay sharp at work. There may be professional dilemmas so carefully consider your options. April could be busy, busy as in horny. Which sounds awesome but too much of something could get messy. Be smart about your hookups. In June and July, be very, very cautious when signing contracts or other major legal/financial commitments, like home buying or selling. Or professional partnerships, etc.

In July and August, try not to overdose on romance. Immersing yourself in a relationship might cost you everything. You may be compelled to make an impetuous decision. You might also find yourself wavering between options. If you can, focus on yourself instead, and spend time with family.

There’s an injury alert for Monkeys in August and September. Be mindful of a fall. And in December, there’s an ally who could come forward to solve a problem for you. Don’t forget to be grateful if this happens.

Both male and female Monkeys should be mindful of reproductive health during the Year of the Rooster. You may experience some skin issues and allergies. Go see the doctor at the beginning of the year for a full checkup, with bloodwork, especially Monkeys born in 1944, 1980 and 2004. Not because there’s something wrong, but as a preventative measure.

Mostly importantly, all Monkeys would do well to avoid confrontation this year. Fighting and arguments will bring on big trouble and break your luck and you seem to have some luck this year, especially love luck. The Year of the Rooster is a good year for Monkeys to get married and/or have kids. But you are blessed with extra this year in romance. So be smart about your conquests, player.
