If a Platypus shows up it means:
This is a time of heightened sensitivity, so pay close attention to the cues that your body gives you. Take time to discover the layers of meaning behind any significant encounters. Rather than trying to adapt to other’s demands or their pace, stay in tune to your own internal rhythms and move with those accordingly. The situation before you requires you to have absolute faith in the process and to go with the flow, neither resisting or being passive and non-responsive. Your clairvoyance is increasing and you’ll find that you more readily trust your inner-vision. Include food in your diet that is grown underground such as carrots or potatoes.
