The turtle could mean several different things. Most of the meanings are not so hard to understand. The turtle could be a sign that the person needs to slow down and really focus on life and where they want to go. The nature of a turtle is very slow and methodical. They do not rush through things, but rather have a very introspective veiw on life as they see it. A turtle is also a sign of slowing fortune, but not for a long period of time. They are cosidered by some native Americans as a sign of good luck, escpecially when found where ou would not nomally think to find one. Hope this has helped.....
