This animal can be lucky for travelers, artists, teachers, philosophers and scientists, and for the accumulation of both spiritual and material wealth. Turtle energy attunes to the number five (5).
This Spirit represents longevity or immortality. Not only do some sea turtles live up to 150 years, but biologically the internal organs of turtles don't degrade over time. Liver, lungs and kidneys of very old turtles look much the same as those of young turtles. This is of great interest to science in the quest for a possible "youth gene".
In alchemy, Turtle is a sign of Chaos. The Turtle can warn of a breakdown, disruption or mental block. Beware of intimidation, withdrawal or denial. Avoid taking on the burdens of others. It's not a good time for financial risks.
The Turtle Spirit asks you to seek serenity in all things. Use your energy effectively, and don't be frustrated by minor matters or events beyond your control. Remember that a period of Chaos often precedes a new dawn of Creation.
