Tortoise Subset

Tortoise Subset


The Tortoise is an animal of extraordinary esoteric import, its shell being the substrate upon which the Lo Shu/ Bagua — the magic square of Saturn — was said to have originated. The Black Tortoise is one of the four great mythological beasts of ancient China (along with the Azure Dragon), bringing support, endurance, good health, stable wealth, longevity, and good fortune to those who cultivate and safeguard its energies in their own respective Spheres.

In the West, tortoises are known for taking their sweet time, but just so happen to win the race anyway.

This Oil and Incense-Powder are for wisdom and triumph over all that truly matters in life.

It contains fossilized tortoise shell and spurs, opoponax, myrrh, plai, manuka, vetiver, and violet leaf, along with 24k gold in 100% organic jojoba.

Tortoise is a quiet, grounded, and focussed take on Saturn in Aquarius, fantastic for solitary work and steady progress. It is excellent for contemplation of the Saturnian current, the study of Feng Shui and no doubt Vastu, and the activation of sigils, petitions, and talismanic objects of a compatible nature.

It can be used to anoint items and objects that provide Black Tortoise energy in and around the home or office.

When I use this oil in meditation, it invokes in me a feeling of heavy weightlessness. I lose track of time n enter a deep, pulsating shimmery darkness. Really beautiful, grounded outer space energy

Tortoise Subset Oil

I *love* this oil. I purchased it mostly to anoint my Saturn talisman, but it's lovely by itself as well. I feel like this is a kinder, gentler introduction to Saturn if you have not yet approached this planetary power. If you long to cultivate Saturn's gifts, you would do well to engage this materia first. It requires patience, steadiness, and consistency - but it helps with those things too.

This subset carries a sense of deep pause and stillness—a kind of timelessness almost. I see myself working with this oil very slowly and in smaller doses, which seems an obvious outcome to me now, but was not how my Aquarius Saturn expected to relate to it. Compared to the main subset, I find that Tortoise connects me to a bigger scope of time and wisdom, and is far more contemplative.

Clarity and Steadfastness

The powder smells gorgeous. Cooling/refreshing, with wet stone and lemon verbena notes (to me). Most commonly I sprinkle just a bit in my sock by the ankle. It absolutely allows me to get a lot done, and it's also great at bringing emotional levels down when life gets overwhelming and you want to be able to take care of a lot. For me it lasts the whole day and then some. Some mind effects are clarity, and greater ability to focus and buckle down. I'll also feel above and unbothered with relational worries or drama, with a sense of greater perspective on my life and a sense that all will be well (and that I can accomplish much). Pictured here with a piece of cobalto calcite.

I got the soap and I love it

I appreciate this soap so much for divination with clients. I need to see thing objectively and not let my own desire to please them with the answers get in the way! I know how to deliver difficult news but this helps me detach from outcome and share things clearly without getting tangled up in their outcome which ultimately has nothing to do with me!

Win the Race in Your Own Sacred Time

I love the oil from this subset. It's a really interesting contrast to the Mammoth subset. I have found it to be lighter and brighter but still very grounded. I have used this before heavy client days when I "just don't wanna" but need to show up anyway. There are elements that really remind me of Azure Dragon in the sense that there's a real "win by showing up" energy here that personally I really need because I tend to be very hard on myself. I find working with this energy is often an invitation to be okay exactly as I am and that it's much easier to celebrate the small wins I would otherwise overlook.

Health, Wisdom, Triumph in 2024

Similar to the Mammoth sunset I'm really enjoying Tortoise subset oil. Just used it in my 2024 candle ritual to call in wealth health abundance and triumph over my vices triumph over my goals. Still feels like a warm ancestral hug from my Saturn in Aquarius Oma (who mostly raised me). Before this series of materia I avoided Saturn work but now I'm embracing it.

Tortoise subset SIA

I have Pluto opp my natal Saturn in Leo starting in 2024 so this SIA materia is heaven sent in preparation for this transit. I haven’t had a chance to use it much yet, but the sync’s before receiving it were amazing, and upon opening the package and taking a little whiff of the materia I had an overwhelming sense of power, and cleansing cold - like being on top of a mountain in a snow storm. Comforting for this Canadian girl. I plan to use this for ritual purposes when I feel the call/need.

Tortoise Subset Oil

Support for issues with my teeth. I developed a sudden toothache a few weekends back with referred pain. Rubbed a small amount of oil over the area (on my cheek) and then a small amount of Aeslcepius oil over the top of it. Next day woke up pain free and have been for several days
