DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Turtle spirit | Rid yourself of things that serve no purpose.

Turtle Spirit moves to an inner drummer that is in no hurry. Seeming to have no worries, Turtle plods along at a cosmic, personal pace. If Turtle had a mantra, it would be “one small step at a time.” This Spirit Animal truly lives in the moment – taking one after another with simple, innocent acceptance. This is a powerful lesson for humans who rush about at unhealthy speeds, often missing the mystical gem right in front of them, in the here and now.

Turtle’s greatest gift to us is learning to slow down and smell the roses (literally and figuratively). Being a water creature, some of the Turtle’s symbolism and meaning come from that elemental influence. It is from the water that Turtle gains the attributes of insight and being able to understand and express our deeper emotions.

In numerous myths and religions, Turtle & Tortoise takes a distinctly noticeable spot as representing resoluteness and peace. Cosmological traditions speak of a World Turtle that either supports the heavens or transports the Earth safely. If you are a traveler, you couldn’t ask for a better spiritual guide.

Additionally, Turtle & Tortoise carries its ‘home’ on its back. The Turtle cannot leave its shell. In this, Turtle symbolizes that our earthly body is our home – for now. It can protect and shelter you, so take good care of it. Tortoise’s situation gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “there’s no place like home.”

Some of the Deities associated with the Turtle Spirit include Ea, the Mesopotamian God of Wisdom and Magic, who lives under the ocean, Venus and Aphrodite – goddesses of love and fertility (Greco-Roman), Vishnu, who has a giant turtle avatar and Set the Egyptian God of the underworld.

Overall, Turtle & Tortoise Medicine reminds us that strength and determination are the keys to overcoming our obstacles. Take your time before you move – don’t go jumping out of your shell right into danger.

When the Turtle spirit comes to you, it bears the message of staying true to your path and being at peace with your choices. This may also signify that you are carrying too much weight on your shoulders. You cannot fix anything if you’re overwhelmed. Put down negative things that hold you back, go into your shell, and meditate. Get grounded, embrace your emotional power, and reclaim your serenity.

Also, Turtle might appear during times when it seems as though your world is topsy-turvy. Many mistakenly believe Turtles cannot right themselves when flipped over on their back. But this is not always true. Turtles have strong necks and can flip themselves over. In this, Turtle can come to you as a reminder to use your own head. You are powerful enough to right yourself, even when others don’t believe you can.

With Moon in Sagittarius, you have an optimistic approach to life, and you believe that things will get better even if you get into trouble.

TUESDAY, MARCH 21, 2023: NEW MOON IN PISCES

Our collective intuition increases as we follow our hearts rather than our head in all our adventurous interactions.

MAR 16 — VENUS ENTERS TAURUS

MAR 25 — MARS ENTERS CANCER

Finally leaving Gemini, warrior Mars can feel a little water-logged in nostalgic Cancer. Our battles turn to the home front, as we’ll do anything to protect our space and keep our loved ones safe, though we can easily be passive-aggressive with those we love, too.
