Dream interpretation is very personal and each dream speaks to you in the most intimate way. The anchor symbol could have varying meaning depending on what is going on in your life. It may be saying “Stay put!” or “This is a good place to lay down your anchor.” Dreams involving anchors are hints from your unconscious and may suggest a need to reflect and economize. Also, goals set. Stability. Sometimes a desire for a permanent home. A disappointment, something holding you back. Foundation; security. You have some base; some foundation upon which to build. You are secure, but it should be kept in mind that an anchor can sometimes hold you back when you want to be moving. Disillusionment, something holding you back. Ideals and actions set in concrete. Holding steady. Being anchored to a situation or person.
