Anchor, anchoring

  • it is important to realize why a ship has to throw out its anchor since this symbol shows well in advance what is causing the life journey to slow down and what dangers await the dreamer.
  • since an anchor is used to stabilize the ship on the water's surface, we can conclude that it is an allegory of calm in the emotional realm, but in this case there is a need to take into consideration the images on and around the anchored ship.
