Fire Monkey Chinese Zodiac
No Chinese Zodiac sign is as full of tricks and fun as that of the Monkey. Monkeys are clever and playful, and love practical jokes and pranks. A person born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Monkey simply can’t help playing tricks, and it sometimes causes him or her to lose friends. Monkeys are usually not very sensitive, and do not understand why others get their feelings hurt from a joke. When someone takes offence, a Monkey does not usually take responsibility. He or she is too light-hearted for that. The result is that Monkeys tend to make friends with those that, like them, are more thick-skinned.
For all the Monkey’s intelligence, he or she does not always do well. This is due to an impulsive nature and short attention span. A person born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Monkey never has a shortage of brains, but it can be difficult for him or her to focus on one thing. A Monkey is always excited by the next project, and may find it hard to finish one already started. As a result, a Monkey may hop from job to job (always doing well while he or she stays) and also relationship to relationship. Monkeys are very charming and seductive, and it is not unusual for this Chinese sign to leave a trail of broken hearts in his or her wake.
Monkeys are romantic and passionate, but don’t always know their own minds when it comes to love. A Monkey may be completely convinced that he has found "the one," only to become spellbound by another a few weeks later! When one of the five elements of the Chinese Zodiac tempers a person’s sign, unexpected things can happen. A Monkey who is tempered by Fire is quite the person, indeed! The determination leant to the Monkey by the Fire element results in an ambitious person who is able to stay more focussed than the average Monkey. A Fire Monkey person still dreams big dreams, but has a far better chance of sticking with those dreams until they succeed.
It is hard not to be impressed by a Fire Monkey. A person born under this Chinese sign will be intelligent and quick, and he or she is often the first person to see a solution to a problem. Not only does a Fire Monkey get the right answer, but he or she has the energy to see a plan through until the end.
Fire Monkeys are even more intense and passionate than the average Monkey is. Monkey people love romance, and someone born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Fire Monkey will likely shower you with gifts and attention. Once a Fire Monkey has decided to have you, it is almost a surety that you will fall under his or her spell. Fire Monkeys are still tempted by a good prank, but are far less likely to let tricks get in the way of their goals.
