Card from our Lifestyle Deck:
The Boat has more accurate meanings when paired with another card in the lifestyle deck or with a tarot card.
Meanings: leaving something/someone behind, departure, goodbyes, distance, voyage, travel, journey, adventure
At the heart of the Boat card is the concept of travel, of journeys and all that one experiences during it. It can very well mean taking a trip of some kind to a far off place, but it can also signify the mental state of travel – the desire to see new places, to explore and to voyage into the unknown. Regardless of whether you are actually, physically making a journey, this card signals heading out on an adventure of some sort – where you are going far from what is familiar.
This card can also imply distance to its surrounding cards, sometimes concerning long-distance relationships, far away family, or an overseas business trip – depending on your question and the other cards in the spread. This definition too, can also be more metaphorical in nature. While you may be in close proximity physically to something, you may not feel close to it. Finally this card can also signal the choice to move away from something. While journeys can be taken in the search for new, unexplored realms, there are times too when we must undertake a journey in order to leave something else behind.
