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 don’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 ‘holiday’ styled cards, you can expect sandy strolls in the near future. Other literal meanings include it symbolising an Anchor shape, such as a tattoo.
