More About the Symbol of the Tortoise
It seems to me that so many things in Feng Shui are to do with “prosperity”. I think this word is a good word as although on face value it can be taken to mean being financially abundant it also has so many other meanings such as prosperity in family, love, community and generally being prosperous in our own nature. I think the tortoise or turtle as used as a symbol in Feng Shui sums up this wider context very well.
The tortoise of turtle is said to live for ten thousand years and partly due to the strength of its shell has a certain awe of indestructibility and endurance. Sometimes they are shown individually as statues, other times as family units supporting each other, caring for each other, with the youngest on top being supported and the father or mother on the bottom supporting them. So in this way they are prosperous symbols for family life. Sometimes they are shown on water, or an ocean of joy, enjoying peace and tranquillity.
Sometimes the turtle is shown on coins, which connects to the idea of living to a good age in prosperity. The tortoise or turtle shell is said to have the markings of heaven and earth on them and its four feet are said to support the world.
More About Green Aventurine
Aventurine energy feels uncomplicated and fresh and can be useful for washing the aura at times of mental or emotional stress, when we need a stone to hold in our hand whilst connecting with a clearer path. Aventurine is good to have around when making decisions as it reminds us to connect to the heart and the idea that it does not matter which road we take because it will always be the right one. It is a good companion for the pioneering spirit, someone who is pushing themselves to places they have never been before. A good all round healing stone.
