Monkey in the Chinese Zodiac
Monkey people are considered sociable, quick, intellectual fast studies, and mischievous tricksters who love practical jokes. They can be quite lucky with money and good as entrepreneurs. They are adaptable and can work in a range of professions. At least, that’s what conventional wisdom tells us. 😉
- Strengths: sociable, innovative, enthusiastic, self-assured
- Weaknesses: suspicious, cunning, selfish, arrogant, jealous
Fire Monkey: Fire creates passion, but can also produce irritation. Passion, quick wit and irritability are common to fire monkeys, and it will be common for this year in general.
What is Chinese New Year all about?
The Feng Shui new year is derived from the solar calendar and it always changes over February 4th-5th. This date denotes the Annual Flying Star energy change.
Meanwhile, Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the combined lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. The New Year usually begins in the end of January or in the beginning to mid-February, depending on when the new moon falls. There are 15 days of festivities, starting on New Year’s Eve. The culmination is the Lantern Festival, which takes place on the 15th day of the new year.
Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac wheel is a little like the Western astrological Zodiac, except each Chinese animal marks a year, instead of a month.
Feng Shui and the Chinese philosophy significance:
Apart from the fact that in Chinese zodiac each animal marks a year vs. Western zodiac, where each astrological sign marks a calendar month, there are other major differences. The Chinese zodiac also corresponds with the wheel of 8 cardinal and intercardinal subdirections of the compass. In addition, each of the 12 animals corresponds to one of the Five Elements. This energetic correspondence is registered each year twice (called Earthly Branch and Heavenly Stem) within the 60 year cycle of 12 animals multiplied by 5 elements.
Each animal of the zodiac also has a correspondence to a specific Aspiration in the Eight Mansions (Lada Ray’s term: Eight Aspirations) system, as well as in the Chinese Numerology.
I’ve begun the Chinese Zodiac page on LadaRay.info. CLICK HERE for complete Chinese Zodiac wheel and birth years for all 12 animal signs!
Year of the Monkey is always the 9th year of the 12-year cycle. The next Year of the Monkey will be in 2028. Each year of the Monkey is different, depending on the element of the Heavenly Stem. Therefore, this is the Year of the Fire, or Red, Monkey. Such year is only repeated once every 60 years.
Those who turn exactly 60 years of age between February 2016 and January 2017 are Fire Monkeys and they experience a full cycle return this year.
The wheel below shows the Heavenly Stem element and color of each Monkey year:

Lada’s global prognosis for 2016
The Year of the Fire Monkey
First two-thirds of the year will be volatile and confrontational. Clashes and uneasy situation will continue throughout the world. There is a good chance that a more peaceful approach to international conflict resolution will prevail in the last third of the year, most likely starting in October 2016.
I would like to note that this period coincides with the US presidential elections. Those who follow my geopolitical analysis on FuturisTrendcast (FT) will see the direct correlation here. Will USA become more peaceful and inclined to negotiations after the elections? I will discuss it in my new PREDICTIONS on FT – coming later this year!
Due to the #2 Illness Star flying to the center of the chart, this year is low in health energy, and rather sickly. Illnesses and epidemics scares are possible in various parts of the globe. This includes man-made viruses and hoaxes (Zika virus is a good example – I’ll talk about it in a separate article on FT).
Everyone is advised to be careful, both while traveling and while at home!
2016 Annual Feng Shui Forecast
2016 will be a sickly year for many people as the Illness Star is now in the center, its energy affecting all. Be careful not to get a flu, protect yourself by eating healthy, boost your energy via healthy supplements, and make sure you get enough rest this year.
Energize your personal health direction and wear you personal health colors, according to Lada Ray’s Personal Feng Shui Empowerment & Success Report – see below!
This year is very empowering for women due to (not to get too technical) No. 8 White Star flying to SW, the place of the woman. Women will greatly benefit from energizing their SW corner with 8 smooth yellow calcite or golden jade spheres and lots of natural crystals.
The water element is missing in this year’s chart. Therefore, boost the presence of water: wear the color blue. You can also wear black.
Keep in mind that black carries a protective connotation and is yin in nature, symbolizing deep water, while blue is yang in nature and caries the connotation of energetic, moving water.
Display water features, such as fountains, aquariums and ponds. Water plants also work. Make sure you display water features in the beneficial areas, based on Flying Star and 8 Mansions, aka, 8 Aspirations, methods.
Use more blue colors in your decor. Blue crystals, Water drop hangings or wind chimes can be used as well.

Surprise!! Your fame is spreading far and wide!!
Look what I found at The Washington Post:
*********wrote blogger Lada Rey, in all-caps********
A comprehensive guide to the web’s many MH17 conspiracy theories
4. Ukraine shot the plane down to kill Vladimir Putin.
This rumor actually originated with Russia’s state-run Interfax news agency before seeping into the U.S. Per Interfax, Putin’s presidential jet flew the same route as MH17 at almost the same time, and his aircraft was the same size and coloring as the downed plane — leading some to speculate that the crash was an assassination attempt gone very wrong. (“This was a deliberate attempt to shoot down the Russian presidential plane carrying Vladimir Putin one his way from the Latin American visit,” wrote blogger Lada Rey, in all-caps.) But as Russia’s RT, another state-run news outlet, debunked shortly thereafter, Putin’s plane has not flown over Ukraine since the start of conflict there, and he certainly wasn’t flying that flight path Thursday. At the time, Putin was returning to Moscow from Brazil.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WORK!! I truly value each of your articles.
Enjoy the Fame!!
She later added this:
“Lada….I just viewed it as simply throwing disinformation to discredit a **genuine Journalist**, one of the few we still have!!!
Just think Lada, you are now in the Mainstream Media.
Take Good Care, Hugs!!”
I want to thank this reader one more time for a nice mention and for thinking of me so highly! It means a lot. I am not using her name in this post as I am not sure whether she would like that.
Many of you may know how I feel about the American MSM. Certainly, I wouldn’t say ‘no’ should someone in the mainstream press or TV ask me to genuinely, truly speak my mind, and not in the derogatory way as is portrayed in this ‘MSM article.’ The more people hear my true message, the better! Of course, they would also have to spell my name correctly, for start. But I think at least one of these would be a real miracle to hope for.
Many of you also know that my opinion and prediction is that the global alternative and citizen media is what really counts today, and will count even more tomorrow. Consider this: to get my name mentioned in that Washington Post piece, someone had to do a google search, where I must have come on top.
To illustrate this, I want to give you a bit of statistics from the FuturisTrendcast blog.
On July 18, after I published my article: Blatant #FalseFlag: #Ukraine Missile Targeted #Putin’s Plane – Hit Malaysia #MH17 Instead!, and when the Washington Post piece came out, I had the following stats:
Total visitors: 5,889
search engines: 1,810
‘What is the real truth’ blog: 413
A bunch of other smaller ones, and near the bottom…
The following day, after I published Post Scriptum: Strange Coincidences? Moscow Metro Tragedy and Malaysian Airliner MH17 Downing, visits and search engine stats are similar, but some top referrers stats go somewhat down, while clicks from washingtonpost.com jump to 163 (delayed reaction, I guess).
Top viewership countries for 7/18: USA (by far), Australia, UK, Netherlands, Malaysia, Canada, Germany, and many more.
Today’s morning top viewership so far: USA, Australia, Canada, Slovakia, UK, Netherlands, Malaysia, Russia, Germany, Japan, S. Africa, France, Romania, Singapore, Poland, etc.
I think this illustrates very well the power of alternative and citizen media in the dissemination of the information.
In conclusion, some important announcements!
1. My interview with The Plane Truth show, which delves into various hidden aspects and powers of the world, will come out in a day or so. Links and video will be posted here, as well as in Interviews. Also check Time Monk Radio YT channel and Lada Ray YouTube channel for more. This interview touches upon my global predictions, and my books, especially THE EARTH SHIFTER, and GOLD TRAIN. We talk about what is the true Feng Shui; the shamanic power animal and soul retrieval practices; Siberian shaman Tengis as the most formidable and fascinating character of The Earth Shifter. We talk about the real Earth Keepers and ETs, as well as what is demons, and other hidden energies. We touch upon the Ray System of Long Cycles, and my predictions based on this system. Don’t miss this fascinating interview!

2. I have received several new awesome reviews for several of my books, including The Earth Shifter,Gold Train and Catharsis (Legend of the Lemurians). Thank you, dear readers! I really appreciate it.
Those interested in understanding my message deeper, as well as enjoying a great read, can purchase my books at Amazon and BN worldwide as very affordable ebooks, and paperbacks. Click on book images on the side bar, or go to Books.
3. Dear readers, the article I promised you all: Is Putin a Part of NWO? will be posted a few days later! In the article I will also talk about what is behind the recent scandal of the Belgian US treasury purchase.
4. A very Special announcement!
I am planning a Special Report that will go much deeper into the phenomenon wrapped in an enigmathat we know as “Vladimir Putin.”
I know there is tremendous interest in solving the Putin riddle worldwide, and believe me – it’s for a very good reason. Let’s just say, I solved this riddle. I will talk about it first in the upcoming article: “Is Putin a Part of NWO?”
However, my Special Report will go substantially deeper and will uncover mysteries of completely different nature.
I will go into history and language mysteries; into striking and profound geopolitical parallels and coincidences; the karmic and mystical depths that few will ever see, or consider. The report will also touch upon prophecies, the issue of the planetary energy, and the destiny and global role of Russia.
This report will be available in three weeks or so, via my new website only. Since I spend a lot of my time and energy (literally and figuratively speaking) sharing my knowledge and information with all for free, this can be your opportunity to contribute and support my work. Therefore, I decided to make this Special Report donation-based.
We are working to make it available for purchase/donation worldwide. In my upcoming interview with The Plane Truth, I give a teaser and a sneak peek into the report that is quite fascinating in itself. As mentioned above, the interview will be available in a day or so.
