Turtle Dream Symbol – Turtle symbolizes moving through life at your own pace by keeping things in balance. While she may appear to move slowly, this is a sign about perfect timing. This can mean you should take your time with something. Do not rush it or skip any stages to complete it. Do not be impatient for you will achieve your goal. Turtle reminds it is not always the fastest, the best, or the biggest that wins the race.
Dreaming of turtle can also mean you should not be afraid to move on, but pay attention to the details to avoid making mistakes. It does not matter if you move forward slowly as long as you move with perfect timing. And this is turtle’s message to you. Take notice of how fast or slowly she moves in your dreams for this indicates the speed you can expect things to happen. You may need to ground yourself to mother earth’s energy to help you move on.
Turtle carries her home wherever she goes on her back. She is always on the move. She has nothing to tie her down. This is a sign you may feel tied or weighed down by something. Do you feel overwhelmed with daily responsibilities? Is there anything weighing you down? What stops you from moving on from what makes you feel this way? It is time to reevaluate. Get out and explore alternative opportunities. Turtles remind that you get squished or walked all over if you do not continue to move out of your comfort zone.
She can also remind that ‘home is where your heart is’. Turtle reminds you that your heart is your home. It is at the center of your being. Do you allow others into your heart? Or, is it closed to all outsiders? When you close down your heart you are also closed to the wonderful new opportunities you can invite into your life. Turtle reminds you of this. Maybe it is time to open up a little and rediscover the world.
Turtle’s tough shell is a protective exterior to protect her soft flesh from predators. Are you wearing impenetrable armor to avoid being hurt? Are you often defensive before you understand the full truth? Being overprotective of yourself is not healthy, especially in romantic situations. Ground yourself. Connect with mother nature. Discern the difference between needing to protect yourself and opening your heart to the situation.
Alternatively, turtle can mean you are being pushed around. Is this how you feel? Are you being bullied? Do you let others push you around? The best way to protect yourself in these situations is to stand up for yourself. Stand your ground. Do not let others take advantage of you. Reaffirm your boundaries and stand firm.
Turtle can visit your dreams to let you know that although things around you are confusing, there are an abundance of opportunities around you if you take the time to look a little deeper. Are you looking for something that maybe just in front of you? Do you discard opportunities without a second thought? Opportunities always cross your path regardless of whether you seek them out. Take them time to consider them properly.
