You don’t have to believe in astrology to predict that “The Year of the Monkey” will begin with travel for 2 billion people traveling home–in the world’s largest migration–to celebrate the Asian New Year.
The Chinese New Year kicks off Monday marking the beginning of the Year of the Monkey, but the government has declared the entire week, February 7 to 14, a national holiday to accommodate the rush of people heading home for annual celebrations.

The Chinese horoscope calls for the year ahead to deliver improvements in money and politics but warns of an abundance of deceptions and chicanery.
There are twelve animals representing the Chinese Zodiac, each supposedly endowing people born under their signs with certain qualities. People born in years under the mischievous monkey sign are problem solvers, youthful, and playful.
Celebrities born in monkey years include Eleanor Roosevelt, Mick Jagger, Little Richard, Pope John Paul II, and Elizabeth Taylor.
How will the other Chinese astrological signs fare in the year of the Monkey? This is a generally positive year for Rats, Oxen, Dragons, Horses, Monkeys, Roosters and Dogs.
But 2016 could be a difficult year for Tigers, Snakes, Dogs and Boars, if they are not careful. Rabbits should beware their finances. Sheep should take care of their health– see more horoscopes here.
And regardless of your sign, expect delays at Chinese railway stations this week.
