Green Sea Turtle

In Terry Pratchett’s ‘Disc World’ books the great turtle A’Tuin carries four elephants on his shell back that hold the disc world up. A’tuin the star turtle swims through the universe.  This is similar to many mythological representations of the turtle.  A sailor has to cross the line of the equator to become a trusty shell back at the equator all polliwogs (non shell backs) go through a ritual that ends in their baptism by King Poseidon / Neptune.

In the natal chart Turtles are ruled by Neptune and this planet should be prominent.  They also carry a lot of earth energy around on that shell of theirs.

Turtles may have prominent aspects to Poseidon, Sedna, Varuna and fixed stars of Pisces.
