Tortoise

Meaning, Messages & Magic

Tortoise symbolizes longevity, endurance, and being grounded.

Tortoise is a unique turtle because it does not spend any of its life in water, making it the most grounded of all the Turtles.

Tortoise is ancient and wise, never needing to rush or worry. It knows that it always has everything it needs within its shell.

As Tortoise carries its home, it is protected by the knowledge that it always has everything it needs within itself. It trusts and knows that it will figure it out, weather any storm, and endure all the obstacles that come its way with its slow, grounded approach.

Where can you slow down in life? Tortoise asks you to find security within yourself (shell) instead of looking to the outside world.

Tortoise reminds us of the importance of grounding our thoughts by not letting our minds wander too far off in the clouds of fantasy but, rather, focus on what’s actually present.

    I have a regular gopher tortoise visitor in my yard. He kept on our second lot, then one day walked straight to my feet. There he stopped and made eye contact then went about his way. The next day getting out of my above ground pool was waiting at the base of the stairs. I got mad at him because I almost stepped on him. Then the last day, the next day, as I went to pick my sons up from school was in the middle of our road and kept trying to go under our van. I got out and shuffled him along to the side of the road he was headed. The second encounter was when a second tortoise came onto the property and was instigating a fight. As an animal lover my husband went out and stood as a barrier but for some reason every day after I worried about “ocean” (what my three year old named him), and feared never seeing him again. He still visits randomly, doesn’t come close but also not cower at your presence, at least in our yard.

    I just woke up from a dream where I was in a circle of sorts where I was offered powered tortoise medicine. I was offered it after I was asked why I wasn’t interesting the other medicines. I had said that I was afraid of the lack of control. What is beautiful about this dream is that I am a it of a tortoise. I am slow and I like to take my time. When I’ve moved too fast I’ve made bad mistakes. It feels like an embracing and acceptance of my true nature. One conflict I have it that I feel like I’m surrounded by hares. Their speed both terrifies and intrigue’s me.
