2016 – the Month of the Metal-Rabbit
When the metal-rabbit meets the fire-monkey
The beginning of the year of the fire-monkey was probably not the easiest
time of the new year. Somehow it was obvious that tiger and monkey have
never been the best of friends. Now that we have an impression of how the
monkey can be and what the monkey is capable of we are ready to face the
On 05 March 2016, 03:43h GMT, the metal-rabbit will enter the
stage. Let’s see what we can expect from this constellation of our rulers.
This particular member of the rabbit-family is a capable creature ambitiously working to
reach his goals. As such he has very definite views on what he wants to achieve in life.
Occasionally he appears detached, reserved and aloof, mainly because he likes to keep
his thoughts and opinions to himself. If we don’t know such a person quite well we will
have a hard time trying to find out what he thinks. He knows quite a few people but
only e few are chosen to belong to his group of friends. In this circle the most
outstanding feature is loyalty so that we can speak of a “tight-knit community”.
The metal-rabbit has a quick and alert mind and is particularly shrewd in business
matters and can also be very cunning in whatever he does. If you are a scaredy cat
stay away from the rabbit.
He has a good appreciation of the fine arts and as passionate art lover or even art
collector the metal-rabbit likes to be part of the selected circles of the so called ‘better
class’ of people. He usually has a small but very loyal group of friends.
The Metal Rabbit likes to plan ahead and lives up to the slogan of the Guides’ and
Scouts’ Federation “Be prepared!”. By this he can not only make the best of situations
but also use his time most efficiently. However, while he may have his own thoughts of
what to do and how to spend his time, he is best advised not to regard these as set in
tablets of stone. Monkey usually has different ideas of what time can bring and is very
likely to come up with a lot of surprises. A lot can be achieved, though. Many lucrative
opportunities may come up but to gain from them a great amount of flexibility is
Life does not only consist of working and keeping oneself busy. It is also composed of
relaxation and well-being. Considerate thoughts about ones diet and the level of
exercise should be followed by the appropriate actions. Special attention on this can
really makes a difference this month.
We are best prepared for this month if we give ourselves time to pursue our personal
objectives. This is the best way to get pleasure in these tough times. And it will also
lead us to more possibilities to progress. It is still true: the slow horse reaches the mill.
All the signs of the zodiac are facing the constellation. Here is what they may
experience during the new month:

No month would be complete with those days on which we should not do important things.

March 2016 nor on 28 March 2016. As far as beginning long-ranged projects we should
leave out 09 March 2016, 21 March 2016 and 02 April 2016.
Again there are another 2 days on which we all should keep a low profile: 15 March
2016 and 17 March 2016.
May we all experience a beneficial month that brings pleasure as well as new
