I am reliably informed that today's title is a term for a horrible taste in your mouth the morning after a heavy drinking session. As yesterday should have been a joyous occasion that might seem fitting. However, I chose it as today is a Water Monkey day and the Water element is associated with the mouth.
On the subject of which, I am further informed that things you do with the mouth such as eating Kebab or Pizza and smoking Tobacco makes Monkey mouth worse. However, something that makes today much better, at least according to the feng shui almanac are meditating or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, having a haircut, buying or making clothes, emigrating, opening a business and trading, laying foundations, fixing a roof, or setting up a tombstone.
It advises against installing a water feature or changing the bed, is that a case of letting drunken monkeys lie?
If Water Monkey is in your chart, especially as the day (find your chart with our Free Chinese horoscope) you can become extremely prosperous in middle age. Even moreso when born in August, November or December, a useful attribute as they like comforts and being pampered as it can produce a very affluent lifestyle. Although, there is a tendency for people to tell you what you want to hear if you always follow your instincts, this should not create any problems. Famous Water Monkeys include Rosanna Arquette, Jack Black, James Cameron, Elvis Costello, Benedict Cumberbatch (day), Melinda Gates, Joe Jonas, Lil' Romeo, Edward Norton, Matthew Perry, Erik Schrody, Christian Slater and Adam Yauch.
We are teaching this weekend so we should return next Wednesday, however as Mercury is in retrograde until the 20th anything can happen. Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW; its still lucky!

Speak no evil!
It’s a Water Monkey day and as water represents wisdom, it reminded me of the three wise monkeys, one of which could speak no evil. That’s an interesting coincidence as in face reading a distinguishing characteristic of a Water type person is a distinguished mouth. It’s usually extended and undulating like Benedict Cumberbatch, Simon Cowell or Lord Alan Sugars. If you know someone like this and have their birthdate you could see for yourself with our free Chinese horoscope.
If Water Monkey is in your chart, especially as the day, you can be extremely prosperous in middle age. If you were born in August or November as well, you could have abundance throughout your life. This affords an affluent lifestyle, very useful as you enjoy comfort and being pampered. On the downside, there is a tendency for people to tell you what you want to hear but if you always follow your instincts, shouldn’t create any problems. Famous Water Monkeys include Rosanna Arquette, Jack Black, James Cameron, Elvis Costello, Benedict Cumberbatch (day), Melinda Gates, Joe Jonas, Lil' Romeo, Edward Norton, Matthew Perry, Erik Schrody, Christian Slater, Adam Yauch.
It’s a slow news day in the feng shui almanac and only suitable for tidying up loose ends, or concluding matters such as funeral duties. It advises against opening water features or aligning your bed. It’s a better day tomorrow and until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

What Winter Water?
Today's Water Monkey marks one of this year’s high energy days and the official start of Winter in the Chinese almanac or “book of nature”. It certainly seems that most people have a spring in their step today!
Starting another essential energy cycle couldn’t begin with a better zodiac sign or pillar, with today's Water Monkey signifying power, presence and ultimately prosperity. Interestingly, the metal element associated with the Monkey also represents reform and government and when viewed with water, stability and going forward.
However, Metal also indicates constriction and constraint, so the Chinese almanac recommends fixing fences and putting our house in order to be able to grasp future opportunities. Especially, as the water and metal elements present in today’s Water Monkey sign are extremely compatible, stability and friendship eventually benefits all.
Read further Water Monkey details below to see how your own zodiac sign fares and we will return tomorrow with a Water Rooster.
Until then, enjoy moment of NOW!

Wet Monkey misses muddle for shampoo and set!
This has to be one of the oddest titles since writing this blog several years ago. However, it doesn’t actually matter as confusion rules the day and any title will do. Consequently, the book of nature suggests quiet preparation as today’s theme and recommends having a haircut, sweeping up or fixing cracks in walls and floors as the best course of action.
Muddles occur due to this being a Water Monkey day in a Water Dragon year and with no middle member of this water element group, communication breaks down. Interestingly the water element also represents travel and this may be affected too. It may therefore be prudent to allow extra time for travelling and remember our blog should you see any break downs.
The missing member of the group is the Rat which connects the beginning part of Monkey with the end bit of Dragon. People with Rat in their horoscope should remain unscathed and may even have a memorable time today. To discover whether this is you, try our free Chinese horoscope. If you have anything other than a Rat sign, get your friends to have a go and let those who do clarify!
We can all have a memorable day tomorrow though as it is the best day of the weekend.

Wise monkey speaks no evil even after teatime tipple
Today’s Water Monkey could be considered as wise, a key trait of the water element. So too is communication and I chose to include todays well-known saying as it lent itself to both aspects.
Teatime refers to the Monkey hour, which ranges from 3pm to 5pm and if you were born between these times, you would have a Monkey in your Chinese horoscope. Being born in August can also provide a Monkey, as can being born it its year. You can find out whether you have any monkeys, wise or otherwise, with our free Chinese astrology horoscope.
“Tipple” is defined as sipping alcohol, which is one of the suitable activities recommended by today’s Chinese almanac. Of course they disguise it as drinking or making wine and not getting totally twisted by drinking irresponsibly. Also favourable for today is bathing, having a haircut, buying or making clothes, refurbishing an office, or setting up a tombstone.
We will return on a Water Rooster day,

Moon Monkey hears no evil
Elaborate title I know, but today is a full moon; blood rises and increases brain activity, so that should make the title easier to decipher. Let's begin with the only zodiac sign mentioned - the Monkey day. But which of the five types is it? Both the Moon and the Ear are associated with the water element. The wise monkey could "hear no evil", so it must be a Water Monkey day. Incidentally, wisdom is also associated with the water element.
If Water Monkey is in your chart, especially as the day (find your chart with our Free Chinese horoscope) you can be extremely prosperous in middle age. If you are born in August, November or December, you will have abundance throughout your life. This would produce a very affluent lifestyle as you like comforts and being pampered. There is a tendency for people to tell you what you want to hear but if you always follow your instincts, should not create any problems. Famous Water Monkeys include Rosanna Arquette, Jack Black, James Cameron, Elvis Costello, Benedict Cumberbatch (day), Melinda Gates, Joe Jonas, Lil' Romeo, Edward Norton, Matthew Perry, Erik Schrody, Christian Slater, Adam Yauch.
The Chinese Almanac, the major book of nature and natural events, recommends pampering yourself or fixing your path and walls as suitable activities today. It advises against opening a water course or realigning your bed.
Monkeys will probably be the most spoiled or pampered today and they will find it easy to relax and do nothing. Roosters will have to wait until tomorrow to develop their plans. Male Tiger signs may suffer from pressure this afternoon, whilst female Tigers may have issues with their partners. Earth males of Dragon, Sheep, Dog and Ox are lucky in love today; Earth females should be lucky with money. Horse and Snake signs are lucky in both love and money, whilst Pig and Rat signs are full of energy and can find good advice should they need it today.
As I now have an editor to help me produce our blogs, we are signing off as

Today being a Water Monkey day led me to expand on the water element definition by calling it a sea monkey and try to inject some humour into an otherwise potentially stressful day. This is due to a clash with the annual qi making today unsuitable for most things, except cleaning house and seeing a doctor.
Normally Tigers would be stressed on a Monkey day but as they are supported by the annual qi, Monkeys may suffer instead. Rooster, the other metal element sign may suffer setbacks. Rat and Pig signs are full of energy, Rabbits feel powerful , Snake and Horse are in the money and Dragon, Goat, Dog and Ox can be both relaxed and creative.
Until Monday – have fun!daily Chinese horoscope posted 2010
