Chinese Astrology's description of the Monkey is a fun, highly sociable, clever, witty and lively personality. This creature's character influence is believed to have an effect on all the personalities of people born in their astrological years. For a Western Astrology Aries sign, the Monkey presence adds humor and sociability traits to these people's characters. An Aries Monkey will have the enthusiasm and efficiency of Aries, and the humorous talkativeness of the Monkey. This makes these personalities very good at expressing themselves, and this really helps them achieve success in many areas of life.
An Aries Monkey is an energetic person who is, for the most part, usually cheerful and light in spirit. They like challenges and variety, and will often choose careers that will offer this. As these are intelligent personalities with good communication skills, they are capable of doing almost any job. The Aries Monkey individual is polite and helpful, and has a high respect for rules and regulations. They can be trusted with big responsibilities and are often able to work long or irregular hours quite easily. This versatility is another reason why they tend to be quite successful in all they do. It makes them immensely adaptable and able to cope with a wide range of circumstances and many different types of people.
The talkative side of the Aries Monkey personality is probably the first thing you will notice. They love communicating with everyone, and if they are not talking constantly it usually means that they are asleep. Their communicative and expressive nature makes it hard to ignore the Aries Monkey. They are not intentionally attention-seekers, but they can come across as such. Those that know them well will be accustomed to their ways, and worry about them when they go quietly. These Aries also have a great sense of humor that they incorporate into their repartee that makes others naturally feel at ease.
Aries Monkeys are cooperative and friendly, and their personalities are a fine mixture of conviviality and sensibility. These people can get along famously with most others without a problem, as they are not usually overly sensitive or particularly judgmental. In relationships, the Aries Monkey can be a little demanding of your time and attention, but they will give you plenty of theirs in return. It will normally be an extremely equal give-and-take partnership, as these individuals have a generous, kind and sharing nature. They can be prone to a little jealousy, but this only happens if they are unsure of the other personís level of commitment.
The only real fault with the Aries Monkey personality is that they truly loathe solitude and their own company. When alone, these characters can become depressed and withdrawn rather quickly. They like and seem to need the reassurance of the closeness and sound of others around them. With all of their other nice characteristics, this tiny weakness only affects the Aries Monkey himself. Although, those that love and care for them should probably make a special effort to keep in regular contact.
