The year 2016 is the year of the Monkey and that starts on February 8, 2016 with the Chinese New Year and lasts until 27 January 2017.
The Monkey is associated with the number nine because this is the ninth sign of the Chinese zodiac. Sagittarius is the ninth sign in western astrology.
The Monkey is attached to the money.
The Monkey is about thinking ahead, dares to take risks and comes up with clever solutions to the most complex economic problems that have to do with migration, food shortages and climate change.
Don’t look back, but look ahead.
February 2016 reflects this energy.
The shortest month of the year brings with the New Moon, Mercury and Venus in Aquarius, the energy of freedom and individuality in our lives.
The intercalary month February 2016 is a continuation of January 2016 and is just as tense.
Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries will continue to challenge each other this month. The revolutionary Square that has changed live on earth so radically since 2008 is no longer exact like it did at the end of 2015, but that does not mean that these two cosmic giants no longer challenge each other.
Uranus and Pluto continue to do so until mid-April 2016.
From that moment on Uranus frees itself from the iron grip of Pluto. As mentioned before it takes until the end of 2018 until the influence of this violent square has faded away.
The square between Uranus and Pluto has led to major restructuring and reorganization in our personal lives, but also in the world as a whole. How those changes manifest in our lives depends on the choices we make and how we respond to changes inherent in the universal power of Uranus square Pluto.
The world will look completely different after 2018, nothing will ever be the same.

On February 26 2016 parliamentary elections will be held in Iran.
The radical conservative patriarchy has kept its nation under its thumb for more than thirty years, and has suffered from sanctions and isolation.
The outcome of the war in Syria and Iraq, the fight against the Islamic State and the immigration crisis are more dependent on the influence of Iran than any other country in the world.
After all these challenges, Iran will be given the opportunity to solve problems for themselves and the world.
The silent majority can unleash the accumulated frustration and anger over the religious extremist patriarchy by the power of the free voice.
Wouldn’t that be a great evolutionary leap for mankind?
Wishing you a magical month of February!
