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.
