Born in the year of the Fire Monkey: d'uh, I knew that! lol
The youthful and clever Monkey represents the eternal child of the Eastern zodiac: eat your heart out, Sebi! lol These highly diverse and bright souls seem 'irrepressible.' (What do you expect, when born from a "stone egg", but Monkey Magic? lol). Monkeys seem quick (too quick for some more plodding souls, lol!), restless, enterprising, and sexual. Mischievous and high-spirited, Monkeys also seem social, active, convincing, and gifted with a hilarious sense of humor (remember Jim Carrey in 'Liar, Liar'? Got to represent a Monkey-role, as lawyer, if not a Monkey himself, although I secretly claim him as at least an honorary member of the simian tribe). Imagination, ingenuity, and resourcefulness characterize those born into a year of the multifaceted Monkey. Versatile, curious and easily bored, impish Monkeys make witty companions, indulgent, intelligent, and always ready to play. (Hehe, bloody oath, I usually crack 'em up playing literati, even while kicking their ass, and you never get bored with broadband, which also seems why I love my broadband! ;-)) ) This 9th sign of the zodiac equates to the most difficult to define due to their dual and sometimes contradictory nature, i.e. extra-talented and intelligent, but also wary of anything we secretly know to present a challenge out of our league, e.g. chess, at least with really top players: Leo's "ego" hides a deep "inferiority complex", because, not "lucky", unlike Dragons or Snakes, we know we have to work hard for anything we get, and so take nothing for granted! Monkey’s need mentally sharp partners who stimulate their cerebral resources (and preferably appreciate our passion for word-games, etc!), i.e. Ms Monkeys especially need the lights to go on 'in the attic' before they go on 'in the basement': we just seem 'wired' that way! And coupled with Rooster/Virgo rising, just try to slip a spelling mistake or a dodgy word past me in challenge mode, lol! However, when Pigs want to get "down and dirty", that can also seem hilarious! The best time of day for Monkeys equates to the hours they rule, between 3:00pm - 5:00pm, i.e. time to kick back, have a drink and play some seriously hilarious literati! I notice Sebi, the Wood Dragon, and 'best mate' to Monkeys in general, "gathers his energy" by power-napping in the morning hours, 9-11 am! Best to let sleeping Dragons lie, then? Actually, Monkey rules, and 'kicks ass' any hour!! lol Fire naturally wants to spread, and to urge outcome, to resolve (look out Wood: you may get burnt!). Fire manifests and expresses in the natural rhythm of the heart, which pulsates the blood. The Fire element will multiply the individual sign's energies. Those born into a year ruled by the Fire element, will display above average qualities of leadership, passion and dynamic aggression. Fire element people must "do" something all the time, i.e. "just being" does not seem our forte (ask Bjorn Erik, who could get quite exhausted by this little Fire Monkey!), and attract others with their fervor and radiance. The Fire element arouses, changes, and converts. For those of the Fire element, their brand of flame may be a mystical spark. The Fire element imparts much energy and can cause each sign to appear impatient in pursuit of goals. Fire seems rapid, and can also consume the person's energies, so relax and respect your body's natural rhythms. Fire element persons, no matter what their calling, will always remain fiercely individualistic. Fire's physical organs are the Heart and Small intestine; its flavor bitter (why a "sweet tooth" does not seem one of my many vices? i.e. chocolate will never look better than sex in my books: accept no substitutes! lol). Fire has the color Red and corresponds to the season of Summer and heat (which seems why summer seems my least favorite season: too much heat = too much of a "good thing", or, like fire, "a good servant but a bad master"? And while I usually love anything "hot and spicy" - also a Mars/Aries/Scorpio thing? - these particular chilli chips, Kettle, seem a bit much even for me! ;-P) ;-))

Q. What's the difference between a King's son, a monkey's mother, a bald head, and an orphan?
A. One's an heir apparent, the next is a hairy parent, the next has no hair apparent, and the last has nary a parent.
