anchor

Symbolic of hope, Heb. 6:19

Hope that sustains

From a spiritual perspective the symbol of the anchor is particularly significant as it represents a boat and mast and hence the union of masculine and feminine. Its appearance in a dream shows we are working towards a time of a future tranquility.

The anchor can also be the symbol of security and in early christian art was used as a representation of the cross.

Psychological / emotional perspective: Psychologically we need encouragement to develop the ability to ‘hold fast’ during a period of instability.

If we can ride out the storm we shall survive. When an anchor is being dragged during a dream, the external forces are too great for us.

Material aspects: When an anchor appears in a dream it usually means the necessity to remain stable in emotional situations. We need to catch hold of a concept or idea which will give us a point of reference in difficult situations.

Gives gender - specific: In a man’s dream the anchor can sometimes suggest his sexuality or perhaps his more creative urges. In a woman’s dream it suggests either her nurturing side, intuitive abilities or perhaps the security of relationship, either personal or cosmic.

Symbol: The anchor is a symbol of hope, confidence, and health.

Vision: Seeing an anchor: a positive sign that dreams will soon be fulfilled.

If the anchor is broken or only partially visible, it means a string of bad luck is about to start or something you had high hopes for is falling through. Anchoring in a harbor: you have again found solid ground. Throwing an anchor: you may be hoping that others will come to your aid, but it would be better to act on vour own initiative!
