Chinese Astrolgoy: The Monkey

The Monkey is the Chinese zodiac's problem-solver, entertainer and trickster.

He relies often on his cleverness and vast knowledge of facts and trivia and sense of humor to not only make him the life of most parties, but to get him through life as well.

However, he can annoy with his vanity, deep-seated need to be right and pleasure in mocking others. He will sometimes feign ignorance of a delicate or scandalous topic and, in bringing it up, make sparks fly among those in his company to amuse himself.

When confronted by a foe, the Monkey will lower himself to manipulation and underhanded tactics in hopes of winning. He is not beyond crying on cue or lying outright to turn a situation to his advantage.

The Monkey is apt to turn from one project to the next without completing any of them. He exhibits a childlike inconsistency in life. Not that this is all bad! The Monkey is fun and flexible, charming and funny. He is competent at many things, the proverbial jack-of-all-trades.

Monkeys love social settings and conversation. They are sought after dinner party guests for their humor and charm. But just because the Monkey is behaving in a friendly manner, does not mean he approves of all his fellow guests. The Monkey is known for affecting a friendly demeanor even when he does not like someone.

Other than that, the Monkey's emotions are fairly transparent. In fact, he wants people to know when he is happy, depressed or angry.

The Monkey can be quite serious as well as full of self-confidence and a competitive spirit. This can make him an excellent business strategist, or cause him to lose a great deal through gambles that don't pan out.

Monkeys make excellent consultants owing to their problem-solving skills. They listen closely, and offer solutions before you have finished explaining the extent of your conundrum.

Second only to the Rat in cleverness, the Monkey is inherently curious and interested in studying a wide variety of subject matter.

Although they enjoy making others happy, Monkeys aren't as successful at making themselves happy. They do best with romantic partners who are patient and willing to put in significant effort to help them achieve happiness.

A word of warning: Monkeys are known for being the most promiscuous of the signs. Once they commit to a partner, however, they can be more loyal than practically anyone.

Famous Monkeys include: Christina Aguilera, Gillian Anderson, Will Smith, Jennifer Aniston, Dana Delany, Tom Hanks, Tom Selleck, Patricia Arquette, Michael Douglas, Chelsea Clinton, Danny De Vito, Patti LaBelle, Jerry Springer, Ricki Lake, Jerry Hall, Glenn Gould, Elizabeth Taylor, Macaulay Culkin, Harry Houdini, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Ted Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, Alice Walker, Martina Navratilova, Delta Burke, Andy Garcia, J.M. Barrie, David Copperfield, Joe Cocker, Bette Davis, Julius Caesar, Buster Keaton, the Marquis de Sade, U.S. Presidents: Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge and U.S. Presidents Harry S. Truman, and Lyndon B. Johnson.
