The symbol of the turtle in Feng Shui
Prehistoric animal, the turtle is often admired. It has long been considered as the foundation of the universe according to many ancient legends. Indeed, its shell would have supported the world. A terrestrial and marine creature, the turtle has a very long life span since it can live more than 180 years. The inhabitants of the Pacific, the Asians, but also the Amerindians have identified it as a symbol of stability and reliability.
In the Chinese culture, it is an animal that is often represented. It is not for nothing that it finds its place in the art of traditional Feng Shui. Logically, it obviously represents longevity. But like its shell, it also recalls the security and protection of your home.
The turtle is often represented in black and rather in metal or brass. Indeed, being a symbol of water, it is more active if it is carved in natural materials. The turtle in Feng Shui also exists in wood or ceramic. In pyramidal trio, they represent the number 3, having a strong symbolism in Chinese, a bit like the one granted in the western world.
The black Feng Shui turtle
Because it is not fast, but always manages to reach its goal, the Feng Shui turtle characterizes the efforts and the way to go before reaching progress. Its black color makes it a real talisman attracting the good eye, especially in business.
This lucky charm is an ideal gift to give to someone you value or who needs luck in their professional life. The black Feng Shui turtle helps to keep one motivated during any effort.
The place of the turtle in Feng Shui
Placed on its back, the shell protects the turtle from unpredictable external attacks. According to the ancestral Feng Shui, a turtle statuette should rather be placed at the back of your house (opposite side of your front door). A windowsill will be ideal. To bring balance and energy, a location in the southeast or east is not to be excluded, especially for the turtles in pyramidal trio. They will protect your family for 3 generations. It is the same if you wish to install your talisman turtle in your garden.
