Arduino micro Bluetooth

Hello I can not get my arduino micro to communicate over Bluetooth. When i send a message to it with the serial monitor, it runs its does what it is suppose to do. But when i do it with Bluetooth nothing happens. The RX and TX lights do not even come on. I know the RX and TX cables are in the right spot. I know it is not the program or the Bluetooth radio because i tested this with my arduino uno and every thing worked fine. Thanks for your help!
