16: The Tower

The Tower is usually an uncomfortable transformation card to be sure.  It is often interpreted as a tearing down of the old to make room for the new.  However, I can also see this archetype as an invitation to pay attention to whats really important.  What is your foundation?  What are you building on?

The Towers relationship with the Chariot invites everyone to choose whats best for them.  To build their homes on a solid foundation on their own land. Letting go of everyone else opinion about what they should and shouldn’t be doing.

Also be careful of living in fantasies rather than seeing whats really true.  Falling in love with potential very rarely creates what you truly desire in life.  Thus leading to some sort of let down, disappointment or eventually even destruction.

When faced with any big or maybe even little choice ask “Will this expand my agenda?”

Of course the Tower can be a complete tearing down of everything in order to restructure and rebuild from the ground up.  This radical new beginning may require a little patience  to make sure all of the pieces are in place before the building anew can begin.  Rushing any project could be like missing a major structural beam that will eventually tumble down over time.

In any major transformational phase it can be helpful to ask “What would it take to have this restructuring happen with total ease?”


Be gentle and kind to yourself, you are amazing!
