The Chinese sign of the Monkey corresponds to the European sign of Leo, so the month of the Monkey corresponds to the period from July 23 to about August 22 of the sign of the Monkey.
The Leo zodiac sign and the Chinese sign of the Monkey are among the few truly lucky zodiac signs.
It’s just that Leos are so ambitious and want so much out of life that they are often disappointed if they don’t achieve their goals.
Lions and Monkeys must learn, step by step, to enjoy even the small and beautiful things that life has to offer.
Those who get close to the Leos come up against their authority and high sense of responsibility.
It’s not easy to live up to the expectations of a Leo/Monkey native. That’s why they have few true friends in life and find it harder to find their match in love.
With the Sun as the ruler of this Sign, how can any Leo fail to be a star! Dynamic, charismatic, and flamboyant by nature, these people are some of life’s natural performers, always turning in a class act, to the delight of their family and friends.
Proud as peacocks, their stately bearing and noble manner confers upon them a regal presence that attracts respect from others. Just as well, since they thrive on praise and adulation – so much so in fact, that many are all too often taken in by empty flattery.

However, because they are warm, generous, open, and passionate in all they do, the sunny disposition of the Leo usually cheers the hearts of those they touch.
At work and play, the colorful and extroverted personalities of this group lend themselves quite readily to the worlds of fashion and design. The entertainment business also calls Leos, who turn to the limelight as a flower turns to the Sun.
At work, they make popular team members and are respected by their colleagues. In business, they make fine executives, often ending up on the board.
For it is their inbred powers of leadership and ability to command, that invariably sees Leo rise to the top of his or her chosen career.
In love and relationships, Leos make generous, demonstrative lovers. They’re warm, sensual people, who are prepared to give themselves body and soul to the person they love.
However, they need constant reassurance from their partners and suffer miserably from wounded pride if they are not patently admired and respected in return. In partnerships, they do like to be the dominant force, and a partner who knows how to make a Leo feel ten feet tall will be rewarded with total and constant loyalty and a lifetime of devotion.
What health problems do Leo have?
In health, a huge appetite for living life to the full can lead Leos to over-indulge in rich, creamy, or spicy foods – all guaranteed to wreak havoc on their cholesterol levels. And this is precisely what Leos need to keep in check as they are prone to rheumatic-type diseases, circulatory problems, and heart ailments.
Fortunately, their love of red wine may dilute some of their worst excesses. Gentle and regular exercise is recommended, but they must be careful not to strain their backs which is another of their vulnerable areas.
In wealth matters, there isn’t a Leo who doesn’t, in one way or another, enjoy the five-star treatment.
Consequently, a lot of Leo’s salary will be spent on maintaining a comfortable lifestyle.
However, since Leos are a lucky group who are gifted, and generally highly regarded, they are usually able to demand a good income, which keeps them in the manner to which they have been accustomed.
The Monkey is inventive and well-adapted to life. Wily, lively, and agile, the Monkey is a clever diplomat and a born strategist who never acts without a plan in mind.
Solving problems with deft skill, the Monkey is good at almost everything. However, the Monkey has a superiority complex and nothing pleases the Monkey more than its own ingenuity.
Its humor is always at the expense of others. It believes it is immune to criticism. The Monkey never allows itself to be trapped and escapes from difficulties with clever tactics.
The Monkey is an opportunist and seizes any chance that presents itself and profits from it. It is entirely amoral and performs good or bad acts with equal indifference as long as they are to its own benefit. It has little time for scruples.
It is cultured and has a great thirst for knowledge. But as soon as it has mastered something it abandons it and turns to something else. It may meet obstacles and difficulties, but its lucidity and suppleness enable it to land on its feet. In love, the Monkey is still an adolescent, seductive, and passionate.
