Like the bicycle that carries the idea of how you must propel your way forward, the oar brings this idea to the realm of the emotions. You may be going through extreme difficulty and dream of being lost on the water, unable to retrieve an oar. This is the sense of your current state of helplessness. The oar can appear as a Homonym of ‘or,’ representing a choice you may not have considered. Instead of wallowing in your misery, look for the opportunity that can help you paddle your way back to the shore.
