Who Is the Monkey Compatible With?

In this article, I’ll tell you all about the pros and cons of dating these signs, and also some clashes you should avoid. So, if you’re a Monkey looking for the perfect match, keep reading.

Rat Compatibility

If you’re a Monkey looking for the maximum amount of fun and laughter in your next relationship, I suggest finding a Rat. These two signs naturally share the most cheerful relationship.

Their sense of humor, witty comebacks, and never-ending puns are enough to keep each other’s moods up all day.

They’re also ambitious and keep pushing each other to grow and expand their boundaries every day. They also love to chat. Neither gets easily bored by long stories and deep discussions, even if they go on all night, and it’s an ideal match in every way.

However, that’s not to say that this couple won’t ever run into problems. There will be ups and downs, just like any other relationship, but they’re always going to find creative ways to make things work as a team.

Dragon Compatibility

Monkeys have superb Dragon compatibility since they’re both highly ambitious and don’t hold each other back in life. They’re both natural leaders and find a lot of common ground in their instincts, preferences, and emotions.

Each of them appreciates a warm and peaceful vibe at home.

The monkey also generously applauds the dragon’s loud and proud personality. On the other hand, a dragon appreciates originality, allowing the monkey to flourish in complete freedom of being themselves.

Overall, they make a joyous pair with a minimal tendency for fights and arguments.

Snake Compatibility

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Snake is a sociable sign. They love spending time with other people, though they’re pretty picky about who they surround themselves with. Monkeys aren’t introverted either.

The two signs have a lot in common regarding their social preferences.

Snakes can sometimes be pessimistic, but the Monkey’s positive outlook on life perfectly offsets that. In return, the Snake always has lots of intuitive advice for the Monkey whenever it’s needed, even if it’s just fashion ideas at times.

The two signs are also perfect together in bed. There’s an intense mutual attraction that goes on between the two, and it’s effortless. The Monkey isn’t too sexually demanding, but the Snake isn’t afraid to overdo their part at satisfying their partner.

In this relationship, the only thing that could bother a Monkey’s free-spirited ways is the Snake’s possessive nature.

However, that’s manageable as long as there’s healthy communication between the two.

Primary combinations discussed:

  • Dragon and Rat are “Three Harmony”, or “Elemental” combinations.
  • The Snake is a “Six Harmony” combination.
  • If the Tiger appears, a Monkey-Snake partnership will come under stress.
  • Bonus combination: Monkey + Rooster + Dog = “Directional” or “Seasonal” combination. The Rooster is the central figure, the Monkey and Dog have no affinity otherwise.

Primary Clash: Tiger

Monkey clashes with the Tiger for many reasons, as they tend to be needy and love finding ways to please their partner at all times. On the other hand, the Tiger is highly independent by nature and won’t appreciate any obsession or clinginess from their partners.

While romantic relationships between the two might not be such a good idea, their fun-loving nature can still make a great friendship.

The Monkey's Difficult Relationships

The Monkey also doesn’t suit a Pig partner, who happens to be one of the least compatible romantic matches according to the Chinese Zodiac signs compatibility. Pigs love comfort, while Monkeys are known for their hardworking and career-focused nature.

The Pig also isn’t a fan of the Monkey’s witty sarcasm, which can slowly chip away their mutual bond.


Monkeys are sociable, hard-working, and fun-loving, and they’re highly compatible with signs that share their sense of humor or at least make a worthy audience for it. According to Chinese Zodiac compatibility, they’re highly compatible with the Dragon, Snake, and Rat, and have strong clashes with Tiger and Pig.
