35. Anchor / Nine of Spades (Lenormand card meanings)

35. Anchor / Nine of Spades (Lenormand Fortune Telling Cards, Carta Mundi)

In the original Game of Hope from which Lenormand is derived, the Anchor signified the final destination and reaching it would make you the winner. This is why, along with the Sun, it is one of the most auspicious cards in the deck. What makes it unique is its sense of stability and endurance, making it appear like a positive counterpart of the Mountain. That is the sort of heft is possesses but heft of the good kind. It means that the positive situation you are likely to find yourself in will last for a long time, that you are well grounded, and that your plans are soon to come to fruition. The Achor’s effect is slow but steady, making it a direct opposite of the quick and volatile Stork.

It makes any other card more stable, quite literally anchoring it in its place. This universal symbol of hope also holds the meaning of your life’s calling, career stability, your true self and your determination to succeed. It is your personal core but also your professional path – often amalgamated into one and working in perfect sync.
