Tower Tarot Card Description

They don’t build ‘em like they used to - just as well! The building inspector is going to have a word or two to say about this. Fortunately, the two folks at the bottom of the tower don’t seem to have had too far to fall. Then again, it doesn’t really seem to be anyone’s fault, the whole thing is the result of a bolt from the blue, or in this case yellow.

Upright Meaning

A change is about to enter your life, this is something over which you will have absolutely no control, nor are you likely to see it coming. Fortunately, as long as you are willing to keep an open mind, you can find that once the dust has settled, it has all been for the best. The Tower has the ability to be a very liberating card, tearing us free from our moorings and pushing us out to explore new and vastly different horizons. This sudden change can lead to you developing a whole new set of ideas and principles. When it comes to romance, you may find old emotional ties unraveling, which, although disconcerting at first, can turn out to be truly liberating. Of course, very few people relish such an upheaval in their lives, and when you find yourself in the thick of what may seem to be utter chaos, it is understandable that you may feel confused, lost and stressed. Such feelings are reasonable, but keep the beacon of hope glowing in your heart and you will come through the storm. The Tower is associated with unexpected and dramatic change, but this powerful card also reminds us that how we react to the challenges that we face will direct their future outcome for better or worse.

Reversed Meaning

Sudden and disruptive changes are likely to enter your world. They may seem to be particularly unpleasant and cause you great concern. Yet, just as spring follows winter, so the future can be brighter. Unfortunately, the issues involved will not resolve themselves particularly quickly, but do not give up. When The Tower is reversed, patience will have its own reward. Indeed, as long as you are able to remain calm and work through the difficulties, The Tower represents you could find that actually, and as strange as it may seem, the whole situation has worked for the best, and you are in a much better position than you could ever have been before the dramatic change occurred. When you have sailed through the choppy waters represented by the reversed Tower, you can be sure you will have learnt much more about your own strengths and found some true friends.
