Your lucky colours in the Year of the Monkey, based on your birth date

The best colours for your home in 2016 based on your birth date

The dawn of a new year represents the start of many good things to come. Numerologist Jason Lau reveals the best colours for your home in 2016 based on your birth date. By Disa Tan

Before delving into the details, you need to first determine your personal year number. Follow these three steps:

Step 1: Add the numbers of your birth date and the number 2016.

Assuming your birth date is 31st December,

31 + 12 + 2016 = 2059

Step 2: Separate the total number into individual digits and add them up.

2 + 0 + 5 + 9 = 16

Step 3: Repeat step 2 until you get a single digit.

1 + 6 = 7 (your personal year number for 2016)

Now that you have your own personal year number, Jason provides his predictions and recommendations for each individual year number.
