The Tower: Troubled Waters Lie Ahead For You

Last updated by Amy Thomas

The Tower Tarot card represents chaotic force and its message needs to be heard. Discover how its meaning can influence your path and destiny.

You’ve been dealt ‘The Tower’, but what can that possibly say about your future? As a symbol of chaos, destruction, and self-doubt, this card can have positive or negative effects depending on whether it lies face up or down. This is traditionally one of the most feared cards and often provokes sleepless nights, stress and anxiety. So, the question, will it do the same for you, or on the other hand bring you joy? 

The Tower symbolizes chaos before new order is restored. Although powerful and destructive, it carries within it the seed of a new and better balance, provided that the Consultant holds on and battles through. In this sense, it's a Card of rare purity and truth, the opportunity to find oneself. This card sometimes serves as a warning. The consultant is urged to prepare themselves as well as possible, or to avoid the hard blows that await him. The higher powers are calling on the person consulting to change their habits and behavior.


Chaos, Destruction, Crisis, Self-Doubt, Caution

Positive Symbolism: 

At first glance, this card evokes images of a divine punishment with its image of lightning striking a tower whilst two people fall from its spire. That said, this particular card doesn’t solely lend itself to negativity, as it can often propose rebirth following pain and suffering. For example, this card’s power is clear to see in new romance after the difficult end to a relationship.

Negative Symbolism: 

If one thing’s for sure, it’s that this card promises a situation will be eventful. It can mark the sudden severing of ambition and the arrival of stagnation. Whatever happens, this card will force you to confront the deepest darkest parts of your own identity, with a monumental change coming as a result.

The Tower's influence on romance:

Conflict, Tension, Destruction, Definitive break-up

Its effect on your career:

Struggling business, Job loss, Failure of a project

Impacts on your finances:

Ruin, Chaos, Instability, Expense
