The influence of the Fire Element makes the Fire Monkey the most passionate and energetic of the Monkey types. Full of confidence, the Fire Monkey is also the most competitive member of its sign. While other signs may take to the sidelines, the Fire Monkey is all about action and initiative. These qualities fit nicely with the Fire Monkey's adventurous and risk-taking nature. The Fire Monkey is self-interested above all and as a result, loves to be the center of attention.
Highly ambitious, the Fire Monkey has many potential career opportunities to explore. With a focus on material gain, the Fire Monkey could do well in sales, advertising, marketing or the financial sector. On the other hand, with focus, the Fire Monkey can do well in fields such as law and medicine, where their sharp minds can shine. Members of the Fire Monkey sign have been proven to find success taking their passion to the big screen. This can be seen in the careers of Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher, who were both born in 1956.
The driven Monkey has much strength, but the sign is also accompanied by some weakness. At times, the dominant Fire Monkey can come off as egotistical and off-putting. In the same sense, the Fire Monkey's adventurous side can run the risk of becoming reckless, especially when the Fire Monkey does not think their decisions through. In order to over come their rash tendencies, the Fire Monkey is encouraged to take their time and focus their ambitions.
The organ of the Fire Monkey is the Heart. Those born in the Fire Monkey sign should help strengthen their vital organ with a healthy exercise routine and diet.
