THE FOOLS JOURNEY THROUGH THE TAROT - THE TOWER: DAY SEVENTEEN

How can the Fool free himself from the Devil?

Can he root out his influence? The Fool may only find release through the sudden change represented by the Tower.

The Tower is the ego fortress each of us has built around his beautiful inner core. Grey, cold and rock-hard, this fortress seems to protect but is really a prison.

Sometimes only a monumental crisis can generate enough power to smash the walls of the Tower. On this card, we see an enlightening bolt striking this building. It has ejected the occupants who seem to be tumbling to their deaths.

The crown indicates they were once proud rulers; now they are humbled by a force stronger than they.

The Fool may need such a severe shakeup if he is to free himself, but the resulting revelation makes the painful experience worthwhile.

The dark despair is blasted away in an instant, and the light of truth is free to shine down.

The Tower shows a tall tower perched on the top of a rocky mountain. Lightning strikes set the building alight and two people leap from the windows, head first and arms outstretched. It is a scene of chaos and destruction.

The Tower itself is a solid structure, but because it has been built on shaky foundations, it only takes one bolt of lightning to bring it down. It represents ambitions and goals made on false premises.

The lightning represents a sudden surge of energy and insight that leads to a break-through or revelation. It enters via the top of the building and knocks off the crown, symbolising energy flowing down from the Universe, through the crown chakra.

The people are desperate to escape from the burning building, not knowing what awaits them as they fall. Around them are 22 flames, representing the 12 signs of the zodiac and 10 points of the Tree of Life, suggesting that even in times of disaster, there is always divine intervention.

When the Tower card appears in a Tarot reading, expect the unexpected – massive change, upheaval, destruction and chaos.

It may be a divorce, death of a loved one, financial failure, health problems, natural disaster, job loss or any event that shakes you to your core, affecting you spiritually, mentally and physically.

There’s no escaping it. Change is here to tear things up, create chaos and destroy everything in its path.

Just when you think you’re safe and comfortable, a Tower moment hits and throws you for a loop. A lightning bolt of clarity and insight cuts through the lies and illusions you have been telling yourself, and now the truth comes to light.

Everything you thought to be true has turned on its head. You are now questioning what is real and what is not; what you can rely upon and what you cannot trust.

This can be very confusing and disorienting, especially when your core belief systems are challenged. But over time, you will come to see that your original beliefs were built on a false understanding, and your new belief systems are more representative of reality.

After a Tower experience, you will grow stronger, wiser and more resilient as you develop a new perspective on life you did not even know existed.

The Tower can indicate a spiritual awakening or revelation if you are highly in tune with your inner guidance system (intuition).

The Tower card is a golden opportunity to break free from the old, out dated modes of thinking.

NUMEROLOGY OF CARD: 16

The number 16 is karmic in nature and speaks of restlessness, our challenges in our lives that compel us to make changes. This number drives us to seek a deep purpose in our lives.

(1+6) 7 = The number for the lone wolf, seeking God, and developing faith. This card promotes us to “Let Go and Let God”!

ASTROLOGY OF CARD

Associated with Mars, a planet that is bold, courageous, and daring.

Mars is always ready to take a chance or head out on a new quest.

This passionate planet encourages us to be the very best that we can be, to accomplish all we can, and to fulfil our life purpose.

If we are feeling confined by our situation, Mars can help us break out of whatever is constraining us.
