Let’s take a look at today’s tarot card-The Tower. I am using the Rider-Waite/Smith deck today. There is a tower that is being struck by lightning from above. Flames are shooting out from the top of the tower as well as coming out from it’s windows. There are two people falling down from the tower with a look of fright on their faces. At the very top of this card, there is a crown that looks as if the lightning bolt knocked it off the tower and is in the process of falling down.
How does this card apply to me today? What can I learn from it’s messages?
I look at the bolt of lightning, and I think “ego”. Sometimes ones ego needs to be knocked down a notch or two. Lets look at the fire that is so prevalent in this card. Fire is about transformation and cleansing. When a forest burns down, the growth is cleared away for new growth! What needs to cleared out of your life? What changes do you need to make now, not later?
Maybe your in a relationship that really needs to end now. Is it really fulfilling to you? Do you find that you or your partner tend to be volatile? Do you tend to argue all the time?
What about the job that you are in? Is it what you should be doing? How is your health doing? Remember, tarot can give you advice in order help you with situations. You can make the changes that you need to make now, in order to help you with the decisions that may be beneficial to you. How are your finances doing? The Tower tells you that now is NOT the time to gamble on anything that may be risky. Security is the key now. Don’t buy any big ticket items now. Saving your money is important now.
Changes may be in your belief system, in spirituality, within employment or relationships. However, whenever structure is broken down, there is always the potential for a new one in its place. Take some time to reflect on this. I would suggest writing down what you feel needs to change in your life. I would love to hear your opinions about The Tower card and how it applies to you.
