Concept

As a Symbol of Hope:

The rising Anchor is a Symbol for Hope. This is alluded to, metaphorically, whenever we say that "our hopes are rising".

When a ship weighs, or raises, its Anchor it tells everyone that it is leaving its current port-of-call and is on its way to a new voyage, a new Adventure.

As a Symbol for steadfastness:

The moment we drop our mental Anchor is the moment when we become steadfast in a Decision-making process. It is the moment when we finally say to ourselves "here is where I stand" and "these are the rules I will govern myself by".

This is expressed, metaphorically, when a ship drops its Anchor. At that moment the ship becomes moored to a particular location from which it will not move until the time once again arrives for it

to sail at a moment of its own Choosing.
