The meaning of Turtle / tortoise in dream | Dream interpretation


Sea turtles and tortoises suggest a cautious spiritual search or path, so dreams involving them underline the importance of patience and fortitude in waking life; remember the story of The Tortoise and the Hare, in which slow and steady progress won the race. In this sense, turtles certainly symbolize the benefits of determined, calculated and well-thought-out actions as opposed to hastiness.

Being a fertile egglayer that can live for many centuries, the turtle’s symbolism relates both to wisdom and fertility, so if you dreamed of watching a turtle on its back frantically trying to right itself, could your dream have reflected your waking sense that your reallife circumstances have turned upside down? Turtles also represent the ability to protect yourself and take life at your own pace. Since they enjoy both air and water, turtles represent the ability to think clearly and feel deeply at the same time.

If your dream turtle is wounded or has been kept in a container, this may suggest issues with your body image, and may also indicate that you do not feel safe and secure in your body.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Hiding behind a character trait (according to Wilhelm Reich). Patience, wisdom; or hiding something essential.

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

Symbolizes delays and vexations in business affairs.

Gypsy Dream Dictionary | Raymond Buckland

We associate turtles and their shells with their reputation for slowness and their protective coverings. So turtles in a dream could represent one’s emotional shell or one’s need to protect something. Alternatively, they could be representing some experience in which things seem to be going too slowly. But dream turtles could also be alluding to the tortoise who won the race against the hare because caution wins over haste.

TURTLE

In a dream, a turtle represents a woman who likes to adorn herself and to make herself noticeable to please men.

A turtle in a dream is also interpreted as a man of knowledge, or a chiefjustice, because she is most knowledgeable and God fearing amongst the sea creatures. In a dream, a turtle therefor could represent a devout worshipper who reads the scrolls of God’s prophet Abraham, upon whom be peace, or any of the holy scriptures. Seeing a pet turtle in a house or a town in a dream means that the people of knowledge in that locality are well respected. Seeing a turtle living in a dump, then it represents a knowledgeable person living in the midst of ignorant people who care little about learning anything from him. Eating a turtle in a dream means profits, benefits, or money.

If one sees a turtle inside his house, or ifhe owns one in a dream, it means that he will benefit from the company of a learned person who is acquainted with ancient manuscripts, or in interpreting ancient scrolls. Ifone sees a turtle lying on its back in a dream, it means that there is a man of knowledge in that town people donot recognize. Ifone sees a well kept and fed turtle sitting on a brocade in the dream, it means that the people of that town honor their scholars. However, a turtle in a dream also can be interpreted as deception, trickery, spying, hiding, evil and acquisition of weapons.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

TURTLE

Symbol: The turtle is a symbol of Aphrodite (Venus), and of fertility, health, \italit\r, and immortality.

Vision: Seeing a turtle means you are well protected and have valuable friends. But it also means that you are easily taken advantage of because you react too slowly. Killing a turtle: you will lose the support of a benefactor. Finding a dead turtle: you are losing—through no fault of yours—a good friend or supporter.

Depth Psychology: If you are a very sensitive person, the turtle is a symbol of the “hard shell you wear” as a protection against being hurt. While the turtle itself is a symbol of inertia, the dream also means that you will travel through life with determination.... Dreamers Dictionary

TURTLE

Dreams of a turtle are a message for you to sit still, be patient, and go slow. Once you find your center and go at a slower pace, you just might find that you will win the race. Dreams of a turtle are also a message for you to honor your creative source, to maintain your groundedness and connection with your mother, or perhaps mother earth. Because of a turtle’s shell, this dream can be revealing your defense strategies and your tough outer shell that protects and defends your vulnerability, and might be keeping you at arm’s length from the intimacy you desire.

“Slow and steady wins the race” is the credo of the turtle. Patience and fortitude are the hallmarks of the medicine associated with this animal totem. When a turtle appears in your dream, you are being gifted with the patience you may need for any endeavor.
