The Year of the Goat or Sheep ended with the beginning of the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese Lunar calendar on Monday, 8 February, and with the arrival of the New Year, there are innumerable questions about what is in store this year.

The Year of the Monkey is the ninth animal in the zodiac cycle, which includes Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Rooster, Dog and Pig. While the year is believed to be one of the unlucky years for most of the signs, for people born under the zodiac signs of the rabbit, snake, ox, Dragon, rooster and rat will have a good year.

Chen Shuaifu, a noted feng shui master, told NBC that the Year of the Monkey is good to give birth. "It's a good year for people to give birth and to look for love," he told NBC. "Babies born in the Year of the Monkey are regarded as very hardworking and lucky."

Another well-known astrologer Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong predicts that people who are born under the sign of the Rabbit, Snake, Ox and Rooster will have an excellent year, according to International Business Times, UK.

Rat: People born under this sign will have good career opportunities, but they will need to be careful when comes to trusting people.

Ox: The Year of the Monkey will be in the favour of the people who are born under the Ox sign. Career and business will be good and singles might meet soul mates this year.

Tiger: People with the zodiac sign Tiger will have to think twice before making any investment, as this year might not be in your favor.

Rabbit: People born under this sign will have an excellent year with good career opportunities, but they need to take care of their health and wealth. There are chances of singles meeting partners this year.

Snake: People born under this sign have an excellent year. The Year of the Monkey will be good for them to make the investment, but they need be careful with their health.
