Lenormand Anchor Meaning and Combinations

35. Anchor

Keywords: Stability, security, lack of worry, consistency, long-term, steadiness, stuck, anchors, the beach.

General Anchor Meaning

The Anchor card is a pretty simple card to interpret. Think of what an anchor does for a ship; secure them to the beach so that they donโ€™t float out to sea. Therefore, the Anchor card represents stability and security.

Anything mixed with this card will be long-term and consistent. Unless the other cards it is combined with are particularly dire, Anchor is usually a good omen (remember it is The Mountain which signals long-term problems). Therefore, if you are looking for a long-term partner or career, Anchor will have a positive impact on you if this meaning applies.

There are more negative faces to The Anchor, especially you want change. Sometimes, this card can be symbolic of an inability to move forward and implies that you may be stuck or trapped in your current situation. 

In the literal sense, The Anchor can obviously be a real anchor, and sometimes it can be a beach. If combined with โ€˜holidayโ€™ styled cards, you can expect sandy strolls in the near future. Other literal meanings include it symbolising an Anchor shape, such as a tattoo.   

Specific Anchor Meanings

Love Meaning: Anchor means that your relationship is stable and your partner is not going anywhere anytime soon. If you are single, in the future, you will meet someone who will be a consistent feature in your life for the foreseeable future.

Career Meaning: Anchor appears if your job is secure. It is a negative card for the unemployed as it can mean that you will find it difficult, if not near impossible, to move forward.    

Business Meaning: Anchor epitomizes the stability of your business. Whether this is a good or bad thing depends on surrounding cards and the mood of the reading.    

Positive: Anchor as a welcomed influence means that you will find happiness in your current situation.  

Negative: The Anchor card in a negative reading means that you feel stuck in an area of your life and are unable to move forward.
