So far this Fire Monkey year is a wild ride! And there’s much more to come as energy becomes stronger during the heat of summer, only to intensify in autumn. So stay strong on your path, and continue to be brave in this Monkey year.

Because Fire Monkey year energy is so extreme, I’ve received many emails from people all over the world asking me about lucky charms for Monkey year.

monkey rat & dragonA popular charm is Monkey with Monkey’s best friends Rat and Dragon. Monkey, Rat, and Dragon together make a harmony trine of animals.

Monkey correlates to Leo, Rat to Sagittarius, and Dragon to Aries just like a Fire trine in western astrology.

Another harmony trine grouping is Tiger, Horse, and Dog who correlate to the western Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra.

The harmony trine grouping of Ox, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) correlate to Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo.

The harmony trine grouping of Rabbit, Sheep, and Pig correlate to Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio.

Another type of charm is to wear the animal sign who is Monkey’s one close ally outside the harmony trine. Monkey’s ally is Snake.

Snake is the most compatible sign for Monkey, even stronger than buddies Rat and Dragon. Therefore the Snake ally harmony charm is the luckiest sign for the Monkey.

But if you are born in the year, month, day or hour of the Pig, then Snake is not fortunate for you because Snake is opposite Pig. Oppositions are Rat with Horse, Ox with Sheep, Tiger with Monkey, Rabbit with Phoenix, Dragon with Dog, and Snake with Pig.

And do you really want to wear a Snake? If you love Snakes, or if Snake is a favored animal, and you do not have Pig in your chart, then a Snake charm is fine for you.

Personally, I do not want to carry a Snake charm. I did purchase a gold Monkey charm for my charm bracelet because I like Monkeys, but I prefer to not wear anything with Snakes. Plus I was born on the day of the Pig (I’m a good cook; Pigs are gourmands) so a Snake charm is not in my best interest.

Know that you can have luck this year without wearing or carrying any charms. A tidy work station can advance your career faster than the finest jade Snake charm on your desk. A clean bedroom can strengthen your relationship more than carrying a gold Snake charm in your purse.

So to enhance your luck, keep your home and workplace clean and very tidy. Then during chaotic times in this Monkey year, it will be easier to stay balanced and not become overwhelmed. If you want to add a charm, then chose carefully the most fortunate charm for you.

Wishing you good luck in Monkey year,
