I'm a monkey, is it a good year for me?

Yes because we monkeys are closely aligned with the rats. For us its meant to be a good year career wise.

My mum is a rat and its meant to be a seriously full blown year for her as its her 60th and the asian ladies at work were telling me about how the various rat years (earth, metal etc) relate to the 60th year.

edited to add:

Here you go Gis - this was the forecast I was given for Monkeys this year.

Lively, witty, inventive and intelligent, a fast learner with good memory. Good at problem solving but can be too clever and become lazy, opportunistic and manipulative. They also know social skills well but can be selfish and egoistic. Also unbeatable in terms of talent and wealth.
Of all the animals in the lunar cycle, the Monkey bears the closest resemblance to the Naked Ape himself, Man. It is therefore no wonder that it should be he who will inherit most of man's intelligence as well as his capacity for deceit.
The Monkey is the sign of the inventor, the improvisor, and the motivator in the Chinese zodiac; a charlatan capable of drawing everyone to him with his intimate guile and charm. Being the quick-witted genius of the cycle, he is clever, flexible and innovative. The monkey can solve intricate problems with ease and will be a very fast learner. He can master anything under the sign and usually has the aptitude for being a good linguist. A person born in this year will be successful at whatever he chooses to do. No challenge will be too great for him.

The Monkey likes: Risks, Cooking, Travel, Jokes, Intrigue, Flamboyance and Sunshine.
The Monkey dislikes: Organisation, Illness, Convention, quietness, Responsibility and Failure.
Compatible Animals: Rat, Dragon
Incompatible Animals: Tiger, Snake, Pig

Your Luck In Year 2008
Overall Forecast
There’s obvious breakthrough for this Rat year. In career and business operation, you gain sufficient support from the subordinates. There is full harmony and cooperation. There are business gains. Working persons are appreciated and recognized by their superiors. There is eminent support; wealth comes in from distant land.
In general, the year is smooth, but there’s still a little setback in your luck. Be careful of vile persons creating trouble and setting plots to trap you. Be extra vigilant with regards to business activities. A year of joy and worries tires you and affects your health. Do open up and relax.
Wealth star accompanies you. Distant wealth comes in abundance. Income and windfall lucks are plenty. However, money comes, money goes, creating lots of troubles for you; so accumulate when you have the chance. Cut down on unnecessary expenses. You are emotionally unstable and have anxiety problems. Take note of these issues. Be careful of contracting the cold and digestive related problems at year-end.

Career, work and business developments are impeded. However, once the tough period is through, results will be great. Don’t participate in risky investments. Have a thoroughly done plan before execution. Monkeys are highly adaptable and able to demonstrate their forte this year, creating a smooth path for their career and work eventually.

You live harmoniously with your family. Monkeys feel lonely and emotionally empty. Young students like to daydream. Early relationships will affect your studies. Couples should learn to be more trusting towards each other. Gossips and rumours are tests for you, and they are nothing if you are sincere towards each other.

Income and windfall luck is abundant. If you have overseas job assignment or distant vacations, you may gain unexpected wealth. But do remember to save for the raining day. Stay away from risky, speculative activities. Invest wisely. Do not act as guarantor for others. Don’t assume any loans or you may meet with finance crises. Finance loss is never that disastrous compare to reputation loss.

Emotional disturbance affects your health. You should open up and don’t get upset by so many problems. Cut down on alcohol and tobacco when you do business socializing. Watch your sleeping habits. Frequent insomnia is an illness. If there’s flu pandemic, be careful of being infected as well. Take note of liver, gut and eye disease.
