What is August’s spirit animal?
A turtle is August’s spirit animal. A turtle reminds you that rushing is not good and that trying to skip stages and go too fast often results in mistakes and missed opportunities. It is preferable to enjoy the last glimpse of summer start looking inward, slow things down and do things at your own pace.
What does a turtle symbolize?
The symbolism of the turtle is related to values such as persistence, endurance and longevity. If the turtle does appear to you, it’s time to slow down, so don’t be afraid to go at your own pace when the situations around you start to get too overwhelming.
Forgive and forget
The symbolism of the turtle teaches you that in life you should not focus on lost opportunities but on where you want to be and how you are going to get there. You need to release anything that slows down your progress and forget about unhealthy habits and bad influences if you want to keep moving towards your goals.
These will not always arrive as quickly as you would like, so take things slowly, go slowly and be consistent. It may take you longer to get where you want to go, but it is the safest way to get there.
Personal growth and awareness
The turtle is also a symbol that guides you in your personal growth and that teaches you life lessons as you go through different cycles of transformation.
The symbolism of the turtle also urges you to protect yourself and those you love. Whenever you feel threatened, remember that a withdrawal in time can be a victory. The bad influences and negative forces are there and, at some point, they will cross your path. In your period of reflection and waiting, take the opportunity to gain wisdom and gather the necessary strength to help you move forward.
Enjoy the blessings
Learn to enjoy the journey and the blessings you receive along the way. Take things easy when they come tough and be patient because sooner or later, everything will return to normal. That will be the time to come out of your shell and continue your journey.
How to work with the energy of August’s spirit animal?
Cast a strengthening spell
When you share an affinity with the turtle, it means that you have a carefree attitude and that your maturity and wisdom are greater than your biological age. Patience, strength, and firmness define you. Casting a strengthening spell to make you feel even wiser and more in tune with your energy can be just great.
Cast a protection spell
You are very protective of the people you love and you are characterized by having a contemplative nature. Here’s a list of my favorite protection spells.
Do some meditation
Turtle is all about having a deep insight into your spiritual realm. Meditation can be wonderful to work with the turtle’s energy.
Use a turtle totem as a talisman protection
You are good at getting started with new things but often lose sight of how to complete them. Often, you get caught in a point from which you do not know how to get out, and because of this, you feel that your life tends to stagnate. When you find yourself in a fearful, uncomfortable, or threatening situation, you withdraw into your shell.
You find it difficult to open up to people after experiencing those emotions. A turtle totem will make you feel protected and safe even if called to go out of your comfort zone.
When will a turtle most likely appear in your life?
The turtle can appear in your life in many circumstances, but these are the most likely:
- When you need to slow down the pace of your life. Do you feel like things happen too fast? If you don’t have time to appreciate how beautiful your life is, it’s time to slow down and relax. If the turtle lives so long it is because it does not leave room for stress and everything takes it easy, and you should do the same.
- When you need to stand your ground. Few things are firmer than the shell of the turtle, and that is why the appearance of this animal is a wake-up call for you to stand firm for many pressures or difficulties that you may experience. Just protect yourself and let the bad times pass, but don’t move from your current position.
The turtle teaches you that you must stay true to your path. That is, be at peace with your choices and decisions and free yourself from everything that is holding you back. The important thing is not to get somewhere fast, but to know where you are going. If you are clear about your destination, it does not matter whether the path is longer or shorter, because you will finally get to where you intended. And that’s much more than others can say.
