Lenormand Ship Meaning and Combinations

3. The Ship

Also known as Boat

Keywords: Travel, movement, foreign, foreigner, international, a ship, boats, transport, holidays.

General Ship Meaning

Ship represents travel. Whenever this card is pulled, it predicts opportunity for travel, something which has traveled or something which will in the future.

Sometimes, Ship will speak of something which has moved into your seeker’s back yard. Foreigners or foreign things will appear as Ship. In business, this card can symbolize international trade and opportunities. Does your seeker want to work online and ship their scented candles overseas? Do they fancy working from their laptop while sitting on the beach drinking from coconuts? With Ship, those crazy plans are possible.

When it appears literally, Ship is an actual ship, boat or watercraft and this is often the case. If your seeker has planned a holiday, expect to see Ship. In the figurative sense, Ship represents moving away from or towards a situation. Therefore, if they’re paddling away from something, The Ship will mean that they’re making progress instead of just splashing about aimlessly. 

Specific Ship Meanings

Love Meaning: In a love reading, the Ship means your seeker is moving towards something, will holiday with a lover or will date someone from a different culture to their own.  

Career Meaning: Ship in a career setting can show the direction the seeker is moving or can represent opportunities in a different country. 

Business Meaning: In a business reading, The Ship symbolizes international trade, laptop lifestyle and connections with people across the world.

Positive: In a 'good' reading, The Ship means your seeker is moving in the right direction. It can also represent a holiday.

Negative: In a negative reading, The Ship warns your seeker is moving in the wrong direction, or trouble will come into their life from overseas.
