Meaning, Medicine & 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.
