An anchor transmits stabilizing force. It usually appears when you need confidence and a decisive influence in life. On the other hand, it also has negative connotations, as it may represent something that is holding you back and limiting your freedom. Perhaps, in this sense, you feel stuck in a relationship or a problem. Dreaming that you drop the anchor advises that you must pause to meditate. And if you pull it out you are ready to get going. According to the Freudian interpretation, dreaming of an anchor indicates that the subject is chained to the figure of the mother (the sea would represent the mother). Old superstitions claim that if a woman has this dream, one of her sons will become a sailor. In addition, it is said that it brings good luck to the sailor who dreams of it. For the rest, it denotes a change of residence or travel abroad. Typically, such omens are always good, but if the anchor appears hidden underwater, it expresses disappointment.
