General Description: The Lenormand Anchor is best understood when you consider what an anchor symbolized during the time of Mlle Lenormand. Whenever ships entered a harbor, they would lower their anchor. It was a sign that they had reached their destination and were safe. The ship and all aboard it had survived the voyage and could now go ashore to rest, restock, and have fun.
At the same time, a ship might have its anchor lowered and be stuck in port until the weather and tide provided the right opportunity to leave the harbor.
It’s from this historical perspective that you can see where the meanings for the anchor come from.
Also, the Lenormand Anchor is commonly used as the card that stands for work in the German tradition. This relates to how once a ship reached port and lowered its anchor, there was work to be done. The ship had to be unloaded, new supplies had to be brought aboard, and new crew members and passengers also had to be gained.
