Tarot: The Tower and Power of Failure

The Tarot card and message for today is The Tower. From the major arcana, The Tower has a notorious reputation for heralding destruction and the breaking apart of existing structures.

In other words: change. If I had a dollar for every time someone has told me “I hate change”, I would be writing this from Bali instead of my living room at midnight. LOL!

In the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, The Tower depicts people being thrown from the top of a tall structure. Many psychics likely encountered this symbol in the days before 9/11. Its energy is explosive, life-changing and inalterable.

The Tower also shows a change from being up in the air to down on the ground in pieces. It represents the concept of hitting rock bottom.

And you know what? It’s inevitable. Everything changes. As in most things, there is a blessing within The Tower for each person, individually. You may have fallen from the highest level, but here you are, down at the bottom, looking up, surviving.

Here you are, standing on stable ground instead of a shaky, crumbling, haunted structure. Now you choose how to climb out and rebuild.

Look for the ladder–it’s right in front of you.

What did that make you picture? That’s your ladder. Grab it and climb.

In love and light,
