APE / MONKEY

To dream of apes, monkeys, gorillas or baboons suggests a link with the impulsive, imprudent, inquisitive side of ourselves, such as the self-centred grabbing of food, or sexual gratification without concern for the needs of the other person. It can also suggest the ability to mimic or copy, as well the childish, foolish and infantile side of the dreamer’s character that delights in mischief-making.

On the other hand, to dream of apes or monkeys, especially if they are white haired, can link in with the dreamer’s own unconscious wisdom: the wonderful experience of existing, of being alive with all the powers of a living creature such as strength, passion, awe and wonder in meeting life and the stars. Does your dream monkey reveal a wider side of you? The three mystic monkeys cover their eyes, ears and mouth showing that they ‘see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil’. Do you need to keep your own counsel?... The Element Encyclopedia

HERMIT

Vision: Seeing a hermit in tattered clothes: bad news in the near future; your efforts are fruitless. Seeing one hermit means you are looking for advice.

If you are the hermit: you have lost faith in vour fellow men and would like to withdraw. Living with your partner in an isolated place: your relationship needs a major overhaul—in some cases, only a separation will do.

Depth Psychology: A hermit often symbolizes a wise counselor; sometimes it means you have lost faith in a person or in humanity and that you would like to “get away from it all.” Are you feeling lonely right now? Do you need peace and quiet, to find a place where you can think about the world, yourself, and your life? See Guru.... Dreamers Dictionary

If a monk or nun appears in your dreams, the positive aspects of this archetype are fairly obvious: spiritual intensity, devotion, dedication, persistence, and perhaps wisdom. Are these qualities you need to develop within yourself? The monk archetype can also suggest the ability to be single-minded, assiduous, devoted to a spiritual path or to any great achievement that requires intense focus. On the shadow side, the role of a religious recluse could be seen as being removed from the real world, overly pious, even privileged in the sense of not having to be concerned about earning a living, or raising a family....

MONKEY

The monkey is a symbol that needs to be understood by considering the various associations that we make when thinking about them. Monkeys may represent lust, self-satisfaction and trickery.

A monkey may also represent positive attributes, such as agility, inspiration, a sense of freedom and a capacity to imitate. In Japan, toys that look like monkeys are given to children because monkeys are supposed to be able to drive out evil spirits. In India, the monkey is a symbol of soul. Thus, monkeys as symbols appear to have a double or twin meaning. Whether positive or negative, the monkey is revealing something to you about what is going on in your inner world. People usually think that monkeys are far less evolved and the expression “stop monkeying around” is understood by all.

The dream with a monkey may be an encouragement from you unconscious to continue to develop your personality by staying close to your own nature.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

This represents the worst of ourselves. It indicates that your instincts are about to run wild, since the monkey is considered a restless, mocking, and lascivious animal.

NUN

This is an archetypal character aspect connected with extreme devotion to spiritual principles, though often this idea is expressed as the shadow of such devotion because of personal associations with this image. Also because of the media, this symbol carries with it a great number of potential shades of meaning, from an intense level of respect to humorous irreverence. Additionally, especially for those who grew up in parochial school, there is a powerful connection between nuns and strict discipline that is often connected to corporal punishment. On the serious end of the spectrum, the nun is the symbolic bride of Christ and represents a level of dedication that is unparalleled in our modern culture. In this light, the character aspect of a nun in a dream connects to a deeply committed spiritual side of your nature that is willing to sacrifice much for the sake of your beliefs. For those individuals with experience in the Catholic school system, nuns can also connect to a level of strictness that represents obstacles to spiritual connection because of a distaste for the authoritative severity nuns can be known for. Lastly, the figure of the nun in her habit has been incorporated into the world of comedy, and for many people this image sparks feelings of amusement and parody.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
