Year of the Monkey 2016

2016 – Leto opice

8. februarja se bo začelo leto opice, ki se bo končalo 27. januarja 2017. Opica je deveta žival po vrsti v kitajskem zodiaku, sistemu, ki ga priznavajo mnoge vzhodnoazijske kulture.

Preden pričnem z odkrivanjem leta opic 2016, bi na kratko povzel zgodovino kitajskega horoskopa in kulturo. Do leta 1873 je Japonska priznavala kitajski koledar, vendar so namesto znamenja kozla uporabljali znamenje ovce, namesto znamenja prašiča pa so uporabljali znamenje svinje. Kakorkoli, Japonci dandanes sledijo gregorijanskemu koledarju oz. “našemu”, zato je 1.januar uradno prvi dan novega leta. Kljub temu, koshogatsu ali “Malo novo leto” še vedno praznujejo, ko je prva polna luna novega leta. Ta dan sovpada s kitajskim festivalom latern, ki zaznamuje konec lunarnega novega leta.

Čeprav se mnogim na zahodu zdi, da novo leto prinaša veliko sreče, Kitajci verjamejo, da tistim, ki imajo znamenje v letu, bo to prineslo nesrečo oz. leto slabe sreče. Posledično, rdečo barvo nosijo vsi, ki imajo to leto svoje znamenje, z namenom, da bi pregnali nesrečo. Povsem običajno pa je, da mnogi izmed nas radi beremo napovedi in predvidevanja, ki se naj bi zgodila v novem letu. Pa si poglejmo, kako izgleda napoved za tiste, ki so v znamenju prihajajočega leta 2016, znamenju opic.

2016 – napoved za “opice” v letu

Monkey Forecast for 2016

Na žalost, leto 2016 naj nebi bilo precej dobro za Opice, še posebej kar se tiče glede zdravja. Vsi v znamenju opice bodite previdni okoli neiskrenih ljudi, iger na srečo in nasplošno previdni s tveganji. Čeprav se bo leto iz finančnega stališča začelo nekoliko stresno, lahko opice pričakujete srečo z denarjem konec leta.

Osebnost

Usodo na stran, kakšno je tipično obnašanje tistih, ki so rojeni v letu opice?

Inteligenten, prijateljski in zabaven. Tisti prijatelj, ki ponavadi zbija šale na tvoj račun, je rojen v letu opice. Medtem ko so zelo šaljivi, se hitro učijo in ljubijo izzive, lahko pa so kar precej trmasti. Radi so zunaj, kjer tudi uživajo, rajši imajo mestno življenje od vaščanskega. Najboljše delo za “opico”? Karkoli na področju bančništva, znanosti, financ, filma in prodaje.

Year of the Monkey 2016

Čeprav je opica železni znak, je vsem kitajskim znamenjem skupno, da osebnosti temeljijo na petih osnovnih elementih: Vodi, Lesu, Ognju, Zemlji in Železu. Naslednje leto bo v znamenju Ognjene opice. Spodaj pa so še opisi karakterjev za posamezne kategorije.
