A day for monkeying about, Monkey Day is celebrated across the world by acting like monkeys, but has a more serious undertone about raising awareness of the theory of evolution, medical research and animal rights.
Help me to see truth in all situations
With my spiritual eyes.
Teach me to hear Otherworld messages
With my spiritual ears.
Bring to me food for the soul from the gods
That my spiritual body may be nourished.
Dark and Light
The Monkey represents the dark side of the human psyche,
but also holds the key to right living.
See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil.
The ability to see both the dark and the light may unexpectedly enrich and strengthen.
The Monkey totem is creative and imaginative.
It can lead you into a deeper study of the origins of the human species
and the examination of ancient wisdom.
Its agile mentality provides you with inspiration and insight when you most need it.
If Monkey has come visiting you:
Monkeys are amazing creatures swinging our way with messages of intelligence, intensity and involvement. Perhaps you have forgotten that playfulness and entertainment are good for the soul. Monkeys have an strong capacity for for compassion, understanding and bonding. These are all part of our human social make up as well and they serve to remind us that our journey on this planet is not a solitary one. When it comes to solving problems the Monkey knows how to use their own ingenuity and resourcefulness to solve problems.
If Monkey is your Animal Totem:
If the monkey is your totem, you’ve got a penchant for practical jokes and good-hearted trickery. Be wise and choose the objects of your tricks carefully. There’s a time and place for good humor and this holds true for the recipient of our jocularity as well. If the Monkey is egging you on to pull a good prank (and if the monkey is your guide, it will absolutely encourage shenanigans), make sure your humor is well-intended, and the brunt of your joke will take your meaning as it’s intended.
If Monkey has come to your dreams:
It could mean that you are being deceived by flattery in some way. Perhaps you are fooling yourself into thinking that everything is right with the world when in fact things are completely the opposite. If Monkey bites you know that something you have said or done is coming back to bite you. Be prepared to un-ruffle feathers. Monkey in dreams also remind us that we have a sense of community and that this part of our soul needs to be fulfilled.
Give Thanks to our closest relative the Monkey’s!
