The Anchor Card Meaning

The Anchor card is one of the most literal symbols in the Lenormand. When the Anchor card appears in your reading you can simply think of an Anchor itself and what it does - its purpose is to keep a ship in place. It can represent stability, security, and durability. Look to the cards surrounding the Anchor to determine what is being secured. If you find difficult cards to the right of the Anchor (such as the Scythe) security may be in jeopardy or become a burden (Cross). The important thing to remember is that an Anchor can be drawn up but not without great effort - you simply need the strength to pick it up.
