Angel Messages - Turtle (Archangel Joules)

Spirit has been reminding me a lot lately of how their messages come to us through animals.

So, today’s angel messages are from a card in The Archangel Animal Oracle Cards deck created by Diana Cooper. The card is Turtle (Archangel Joules).

You my remember that this deck brings us messages exclusively from the amazing creatures that we are blessed to share the planet with – animals, birds, fish, reptiles, and insects. It is important for us to understand and respect them as they too, are on a journey to realize their soul purpose. When our journeys intersect, the animals bring us important messages from Spirit. They may demonstrate behaviours that have meaning to us or communicate with us telepathically. (Source: Archangel Animal Oracle Cards Guidebook)

The Archangel that oversees the waters of the animal kingdom is Archangel Joules. As you can see from the illustration, his colour is a beautiful blue green. He invites us to bathe in the oceans which are a huge reservoir of the Christ Light. You can ask him to open each of your chakras with the Christ Light and then link those chakras to the centre of Mother Earth.

My Messages:

My first thought is that this card is a “water card”. Water symbolizes emotions and here we

see the turtle swimming “in a sea of emotion.” Emotions have “run high” around the world for the last few years and continue to do so as the energy of Mother Earth shifts. Many people currently are experiencing rapid shifts in emotional “highs and lows.” How are your emotions lately? Do you feel as if you are on an “emotional roller coaster?”

If emotions are creating havoc in your life, the turtle reminds us to be “slow and steady” as we navigate those emotions to find our true joy. The streams of light coming from above him, as well as the swirl of orbs following the dolphins, and the light emanating from the heart of the sea horses, reminds us that Source provides us with so many opportunities for joy – they are all around us. All we need to do is slow down and be observant.

The light coming to the centre of the turtle’s back is connecting with his soul light. The colours at the tips of the star extensions of the light remind us of the chakras – perhaps Archangel Joules is activating them! The turtle’s shell provides impenetrable protection – a reminder that we are always protected through our connection to Source.

We also need to trust that Source is always ready to help us access joy. We just need to trust and be open to what Spirit brings into our lives because it is always for our highest good. There are also two dolphins in the picture and two seahorses. The number two is about partnerships. Spirit wants us to remember to partner with source in co-creating a joyful life. Sea horses also symbolize seeing all sides of a situation – useful in finding your joy and can give you guidance through rough emotional waters. Dolphins symbolize joy and finding self love to experience that joy. They also remind us of community partnerships in working together to bring joy in for everyone.

Guidebook Messages:

“About Turtles:

These highly evolved beings step down to Earth from another universe through the ascended aspect of Jupiter, known as Jumbay, the plane of happiness and abundance. Turtles radiate these qualities in their energy fields. Like all reptiles, they maintain their original divine blueprint from Source.

Their soul mission is to help raise and maintain the frequency of our oceans and facilitate prosperity consciousness and higher knowing in humanity. They trust the land to look after their eggs and the sea to nurture their young so that enough of their offspring will survive. Their tough shell protects an incredibly sensitive inner. They form part of the dolphin’s protective army by raising the frequency of the waters around them to create an impenetrable wall of light. Then lower entities cannot access the information turtles hold in trust.

Turtles draw our attention to the importance of keeping the waters clean and often sacrifice themselves while doing so.”


Choosing this card suggests that you may sometimes put your shell around you to protect your

sensitive feelings. This also prevents the good from coming in. Your guidance is to let this wall down and to place light around yourself instead.

Through the turtles, tune into Jumbay and focus on abundance consciousness. You can call in love, prosperity, happiness, joy, and all manner of good things, but be sure to visualize others and the whole planet receiving the stream of bounty with you.

Trust that the universe loves you and that everything will work out for the highest good. The rich and generous universe is ready to bring you plenty, so value who you truly are. And if you wish to sacrifice yourself for the majority, do so consciously.”

I hope this was helpful for you. For me, I have been feeling the world’s emotional upheaval most intensely for the last couple of weeks. Even though I know the emotion is not mine and that I am feeling it intensely as an Empath, I am grateful for the turtle’s reminder to slow down to find the joy; to focus on self to find the joy, and to trust that everything happens on Divine purpose.

I would love to hear your feedback about how this card’s message has resonated with you. If you find that you are wanting some assistance with finding joy and trusting in Source/The Universe, I am offering individual intuitive counselling and angel card readings online or in person (in Calgary).

Lots of love and hugs,
