We all must have heard the tale of Samudra Manthan i.e. churning of the ocean by our grandmother in childhood.

Feng Shui practices involve four celestial animals, that correspond to the four compass directions. The tortoise represents north, the dragon is the guardian of the east, the phoenix is the guardian of the south while the tiger is the guardian of the west. These four celestial animals are believed to guard the feng shui energies. The turtle, one of those celestial animals, has a variety of uses in feng shui practices.
It is advised to keep the turtle towards the north such that it’s tail points towards the north. The silver turtle, kept in water should appear to be coming from the north. It is lucky for bringing wealth and prosperity. Similarly, for health problems, it is advised to keep it in the northeast for the good health of your family.
The tortoise has a very hard shell and a pretty long life span. Thus, it is believed to eradicate health issues when kept in the right direction. Also, one should place the medicine box somewhere near the turtle in the northeast direction for the good results.
To bring stability in your home, turtles should be kept in pairs, or several small and big turtles must be kept together, as a family in the southwest direction. The brass turtle, placed in southwest direction stabilizes one’s relationships. Keeping the turtle in your temple, on a piece of yellow cloth is also considered a good omen and one must remember to keep the turtle in a cotton pouch, while not in use.
