“Monkey see, Monkey do!” If you want to accomplish your dreams and goals this year, be like monkey and look all around you! It’s time to break out of your cage and get back to the tree tops! Monkeys are curious, smart, alert and innovative. They need a vast territory in which to explore and feel safe. They remind us that anything can be achieved when we are willing to learn from others and practice until we are confident in our endeavors. Monkeys don’t sit around lamenting how many bananas they don’t have: they do whatever they can to obtain them.
But monkeys are not workaholics! Most of them love to play, cuddle, frolic with their friends and family. Monkeys’ social circles are extremely important to them. They make close friends and have wide networks of acquaintances: they help one another survive and thrive.
Fire is the element of heat, transformation, movement, passion. Put fire and monkey together and you have a powerhouse of activity and social change. This year will no doubt be an exciting one! Those who resist nature and her altering rhythms may experience life as tumultuous and unpredictable. Those who are willing to fan the flames and harness the heat of society’s bonfire will thrive and find themselves in strange but wondrous situations.
Monkey’s are assertive and mischievous. They can be entertaining, and sometimes even frightening to those who haven’t been around them very much. If you are lacking vitality, fire, or enthusiasm, call monkey into your house by way of art and imagination, and don’t be surprised if you soon start to feel like swinging on the vines across the jungle of existence!
