People born in the Year of the Monkey are said to be inventive, versatile, humorous, generous, intelligent, witty, lively, independent, and charming. At their worst, they can be manipulative, opinionated, conceited, egotistical, capricious, superficial, meddling, and careless.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: The Chinese New Year does not fall on the same date every year, so it is essential to check the calendar to find the exact date on which each Monkey Year actually begins.
