Tarot > The Tower
everything seems to be crumbling around your ears, it can be very
difficult to believe that things can and will get better. But, despite the
fact that The Tower represents disruption or collapse of certain aspects
within your life, these very events can often lead to brand new
There’s no getting around this one, The Tower is not a welcome card in a
reading yet, at the same time, it does not warrant feelings of panic or
fear. The card can often indicate an event or period of time that could be
challenging and difficult but, as is so often the case, one disaster can
often lead to a new victory.
For example, an unexpected request for divorce from a spouse could be
devastating, yet I know of people where such an experience led to them
achieving more than they ever dreamed of because they pursued a different
path as a result. Often, such an incident creates the freedom and space
for a new and greater love to walk into your life.
Many people have experienced bankruptcy, lost their homes and material
possessions only to change tactics and create great wealth and success.
The clearing away of the old often makes way for the new.
The life lessons we learn from the turbulence indicated by The Tower help
us to rethink and to approach our lives with a newfound wisdom so that we
don’t make the same mistakes again.
So, if The Tower appears in your reading, then there may be something in
your life that will challenge you or has challenged you, and it will be up
to you how you choose to get over it and learn from the experience.
Sometimes The Tower may represent you as the person causing the
disruption. Perhaps you need to make choices or decisions that are
important to you but could cause material or emotional loss. In such a
situation, only you can know whether you are prepared to pay the price.
The Tower can also serve as a warning that a certain choice or decision
could lead to disaster, such as, if you are considering an extra-marital
affair, leaving your job without a new one to step into, that kind of
Take heed when this card comes up, but don’t panic or get anxious.
Consider your options and choices wisely and if you can avoid such chaos,
great! If chaos is forced upon you, trust that however challenging it may
be, you can find a way to move forward with your life.
If the Tower describes your current life events, you're probably feeling
really lousy right now. You may have no idea which way to turn and just
feel that your life is falling apart.
It's at times like this, that I find the Tarot most beneficial.
Gaining some insight into your circumstances really helps to give you hope
that there's light at the end of the tunnel, and that you'll reach it
sooner of later.
