2016 election: Which candidate will triumph in the Year of the Monkey?

With the Year of the Monkey upon us, CNN asked Hong Kong fortune teller Priscilla Lam to divine the fates of the candidates battling it out for the presidency.
She says the new lunar year will fuel good fortune for "earth dog" Donald Trump, while also lighting a fire under Hillary Clinton.
Bernie Sanders' missing metal is a problem with older voters and the fighting elements of fire and water might just leave Marco Rubio all wet. And don't ask about Ted Cruz's face reading.
Click through the gallery to see how Lam breaks down the candidates' chances for the top job.

Lam is not upbeat on Cruz's chances: "This is not the face of a president. You see the bone in the mid part of his nose. This is not good. It's a blockage for selection. Also his lips and eyes are turned down. This means lots of difficulties, not enough supporters."

Lam says Sanders is not optimistic enough: "His eyes are dropping down."
Rubio has conflicting elements, according to Lam: "He is the water type. He doesn't need the sunshine. This year, the water and fire are fighting."

Lam says chances are better for Clinton's second attempt at the presidency: "Eight years ago, she was in a different life cycle. She was a little bit too aggressive. At the time, she was too proud of herself. She thought she must be the winner so she lost the election." But she reckons Hillary will find it hard to beat Trump.
Lam says Trump is extremely ambitious: "He has a square face. Usually a square face man will go into business, but his nose is very high. He wants to try other things. "
