9 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, 9 Raccoon/KVH’LI)
Galactic Tone 9/BOLON: Solar; mobilize; constant; perseveres.
The energy of Nine is one of getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action are all-important to Nine.
Monkey/CHUEN: Transforms (Color: Black; Direction: West; Element: Water)
Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoon is full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy. Magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
The Art of Play
Tone 9 guides us to see from a broader perspective. Day Sign Chuen arrives as the Weaver of All Time and Master of all Arts. Monkey demonstrates that we can access Spirit through the Art of play. When we are lost in play, we engage in a limitless expanse of all time and possibility.
Some remarkable discoveries have been made by people who were playing around. Take Corn Flakes. In the process of bread-making, Will Keith Kellogg left some boiled wheat on the stove too long. It became a flakey goo. He was curious to see what would happen if he baked it.
Our greatest inspirations can be born when we’re not bound by a set of pre-existing limits or standards. Monkey frees us to go out to play. We have the whole universe of our imaginations to play with and the gift of the natural world to explore and inspect up close.
To all my relations, help me to travel far away from the thoughts of daily life to the place where I can play and dream. Help me to treasure the simple joys of being in the moment where I am One with all that is.
in lak’ech, I am another you
