Monkeys are fascinating animals to watch. Their acrobatic maneuvers
hold the energy of
effortlessness and grace. They twist, turn, jump, and hang with
the greatest of ease. They crawl
up and down tree trunks and leap from branch to branch extending
their long arms outward
towards the next limb. Once they arrive at their destination
they stop, look around and
contemplate what is in their immediate environment.
Moving in all directions, forward, backwards and sideways gives
the monkey the advantage of
seeing things from different angles. They have excellent vision
and are able to see that which is
hidden from normal view. Their master ship of movement and keen
observation skills help them
reach their destination safely. Those with this totem have the
ability to know where they are
going and understand where they have been. Through perseverance,
focus and fluid movement
their goals can be attained.

This sexual potency is symbolic of
birth, rebirth and new creation.
The monkey is a powerful ally to have. A master at shape shifting
realities it prompts us to
explore all aspects of who we are and who we choose to become.
By learning from the monkey
and applying its skills of power, grace and observation, foundations
are created that give birth to
our choices. Eventually these choices will manifest in our lives
so if monkey is your totem be
careful of what you choose.
