In daily life, you dig to uncover the roots of something. You may dig for the truth or dig to bury an aspect, which you’d rather not face. This symbol goes deeper than just searching for something. It suggests that you know where it is and need only discover the roots to bring it back to life. On the other hand, digging can suggest the need to remove it completely, by destroying its roots. Digging portrays a desire to see something or understand the dynamics of things hidden. See Burial.
