Anchor – Lenormand #35.
About the Card
Many readers of the Lenormand cards give the meaning of job/work/career to the Anchor card. I often refer to this meaning as well.
When interpreting this card in a layout and the meaning of work is not applicable it can indicate some sort of security. In love or relationship questions it promises a steady and solid connection. In business related questions that are not necessarily related to work it will bring encouragement that is based on reliability.
The Anchor has multi level meanings as with most cards in the Lenormand deck. It provides a “grounding” to a situation. One interesting thing to note is that if you are anticipating change in regards to a circumstance or even a person this card will not lend hope to that. There will be no obvious change.
If you look at the image (French Cartomancy deck) you will see the anchor with a long chain that is not attached to anything. At one time it was secured to the boat in the background. The boat lies still in one spot too and it is not adrift. Both these images suggested “staying put”. It would take a strong gust of wind to move both these objects and it would take an even bigger shift in direction to change a situation.
I look forward to seeing the Anchor card when it is place next to most of the cards in the deck. There are some exceptions, of course. If it were to lie next to the Tree card it might indicate a potential problem with the health that would be difficult to diagnose or treat. Other cards must accompany this duo that will reveal some kind of unpleasant issue.
Is the Scythe card powerful enough to rattle the chain of the anchor? When the Scythe fall behind or before the Anchor card it will foretell that a severance was necessary to bring back some stability. This could actually mean the loss of a job.
If the Scythe card falls beneath or after the Anchor card it will portend a job with no future. When you are using some of the other meanings for the Anchor, this duo could hint at surgery if the Tree card is very close by. Let’s say there is no health issue, then this duo can mean that you will meet someone through a work related circumstance.
However, if you decide that the meaning of “work” is not applicable, the duo will tell you that it is time not to stay put any longer and to apply some quick action in order to restore some sense of confidence in the situation or with a person involved.
