Turtle Totem Pendant
The Turtle totem is viewed as a bridge between the realm of spirit and the material world we see with our eyes. The turtle shell represents this symbology with the top of the shell being the heavens and the sky, the geometric patterns on the bottom of the shell represent the material plane of the Earth. Since the Turtle is amphibious being able to be on both land and water, this further directs us to the symbol of the turtle as a mystical gateway; what mysteries does the Turtle speak of to you? Turtle also share a link with the divine feminine in some cultures as the shell patterns of specific types of turtles actually reflect the lunar months and phases. Therefore Turtles represent goddess energy, the divine feminine, and the sacred mother Earth. Turtles know when to come out of their shells, and when not too; the Turtle is also a symbol of our own awareness. Due to the long life span of Turtles, the are also said to bring long life in folklore.
