The Tower Overview

The Tower card looks chaotic and a bit frightening at first glance. A lightening bolt has hit the building with such force that it has caused a fire which is burning rapidly with smoke and brimstone exploding everywhere. The tower’s residents either have jumped from the building or have been flung from the safety it formerly provided. This card in a reading can be bad or good depending on your perspective, as well as how comfortable you are with change. From time to time things need to be shaken up. Old ways of doing things that are outdated, or not encouraging us to grow and move forward will be removed to make way for something better. Right side up this card is major mind bending revelations and change. Upside down it is the same, but to a lessor degree. An important lesson to remember when reading this card is “All great change is first proceeded by chaos.”
