The Tower: Troubled Waters Lie Ahead For You

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.

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.

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.
