Chinese Astrology/Monkey and Snake
The Monkey and the Snake may have too many opposing qualities to get along very well. They do both love to have a good time and are both charming and popular; this may be the saving grace of their relationship or it may simply point to the forum in which they initially connect. However, the Snake's popularity and seductive charm belie a much more reserved nature; this Sign is actually something of a homebody, one that loves to curl up and lose itself in a good book. The Monkey, on the other hand, is always interested in having a good time, in following its own pleasures and adventures.
As lovers these two might have a lot of fun together going out on the town with friends; they are also capable of an intense sexual connection. However, the Snake tends to be the jealous, possessive type and the Monkey will have a hard time not providing reason for the Snake's jealousies to flare up. The Monkey is a loyal Sign and, though it does have the potential to be an unfaithful lover, won't necessarily fulfill that potential; however, its urge to be out with a different group every night will leave the Snake worrying anyway, no matter how faithful the Monkey has been.
If these two are in business together they can make it work -- if they can figure out how to get along. If they can avoid arguments, their opposite styles could actually be complementary. The Monkey is a go-getter who follows its fortune wherever it leads; this Sign loves a challenge. The Snake is a more careful, deliberate worker; though sometimes considered lazy, this Sign will work long and hard toward a goal it believes in. The Snake also tends to be very lucky with money, but may tire of the Monkey's fun-loving nature. These two Signs will likely compete with one another for the position as front person, and the Snake may ultimately put in more work than the Monkey.
Remember that each year is associated not only with a Chinese Sign but also with one of the Chinese Elements -- Metal, Water, Wood, Fire or Earth. That means there's Metal Monkeys, Water Monkeys, Wood Snakes, Fire Snakes ... Find your Element as well as your Sign and see how your Element affects your Animal nature.
