The Tower

The Tower

Meaning

Most often The Tower refers to a situation involving a building, foundation, or structure, coming to a disruptive end. Consider 9/11 and the Twin Tower event that changed the world, for example. Most events The Tower represents are not as severe. A foundation has crumbled. It could be the foundation of a relationship, or an actual building disrupted. This card has been seen for example when a home is lost due to foreclosure, when a relocation occurs that is unpleasant. It has even been seen when something like a minor flooding happens that causes disruption temporarily. The card looks scarier than it is most of the time. A building disruption in your life could be a simple relocation, or maybe even just a fight with a room-mate, or a room-mate moving out. In due time, healing will take place and all events and people shown in this card will resume their normal position. The rug may feel like it's pulled out from under you, but peace will come back to the valley in due time.

Symbolism

The Tower can be a frightening card to see in a reading, and you are being encouraged with this, and any other frightening card, to rest assured that all events in life arrive with a purpose and a lesson. Also rest assured that nothing lasts forever, so this one event this card signifies is merely that, one event in your life, not, your whole life. The Tower shows a tower surrounded by storms and darkness. The people in the tower are falling, and there is disruption and mayhem. Ruled by Uranus this card predicts unexpected events that feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you. This card is best in the past position, but when appearing in the present it warns of a sudden situation.
