Monkeys, Peanuts, Letting Go

Humans have always questioned why, as a species, we too hold on so much to the way things are. And why we shy away from change or we can't let go of people or ideas. It turns out that we are not the only creatures that hold on to things so tightly to the point that we might compromise our safety and wellbeing. Monkeys, our dear cousins do the same.
There is a tale that Monkeys can easily be trapped by placing peanuts in a jar at the base of the trees inhabited by them. The opening of the jar allows the monkey to place his hand in, but when he tries to withdraw it, he/she is unable to do so without letting go of the contents of the jar. Some monkeys will stay there with their hand in the jar until the hunter traps them! They are trapped because they are unwilling to let go of something they are doing which is working against them. The simple way to escape would be to let go of the nuts, but the monkey grips tighter and tighter on to its prize. We do act like those monkeys sometimes, when we find increasingly hard to let go of hold habits that do not serve us anymore. It is difficult for us to let go toxic relationships, jobs, thoughts, way of being, possessions as much as it is difficult for the monkey to leave a peanut behind. However, this should not surprise us or making us feel uncomfortable, because these are our shared lives as living and loving beings. A good reminder for us all comes from the practice of Aparigraha (one of the pillars in the Yoga Philosophy): joy in life is not dependant in grasping or holding on, but to remember that what we possess, possesses us. What we hold on to holds us. As we share so much of our genetic material with monkeys (nearly 99%), a question might arise: will this art of letting go be one of the things that keep us close to our cousins, or will it be included in the package of achievements that come with our 1% difference in DNA?

Popular questions

What is the difference between lunar and daylight hours?
Lunar tips and day characteristics in the app are based on lunar days, which can sometimes differ from calendar days. This is because lunar days are determined by the position of the Moon, and they can change independently of calendar days (daylight hours). So, you can read a horoscope for one lunar day and when you check it later, it may change to the next lunar day. Since sometimes the change of lunar day can happen in the middle of the daylight hours. This is the normal behavior of the app, and it is designed to give you unique and personalized information for each lunar day. If you have any specific questions or concerns about horoscope readings, feel free to let us know and we'll do our best to help you further!
How to create a profile and how to log in?
You have several ways to log in to your account through: Google account, Apple ID, Email and Facebook. In order not to lose your profile data (tarot history, calendar, notes, etc.), it's important to use and remember your way of logging in to your account on another device, for example. Also, your registration in the application is automatic after filling out your profile data. You can see your ID if you click on the "Sign in with Apple" button, which is the same as registering your profile data. In the same window, you can log out of your account and then log in with the same ID. But it is important that your profile information is saved, otherwise you will have to re-enter it when you sign in again.
How does the profile restoration process work?
If you delete your account, all your data will disappear in the app, including your date of birth, tarot history, notes, etc. If you delete only the app and then re-upload it, your profile will be populated with your previous birth information. If you didn't delete your account, and logged into the app through your Apple ID, and then logged in also through your Apple ID on another device, your date of birth will be restored, as will your tarot data history, notes, etc. It is important to log into your account using the same login method. If you download the app to another device and hit the restore button, only premium access will be restored, not your profile history. You will need to log in to the app to restore all your data. Under the same login methods.
