The Tower

by liz
(Berkeley, California, USA)

Four years ago, I lost my house during the economic marker turn. I can't tell you how many times the tower card came out during those years. At the same time I was accepted into a PHd program out of state.

The tower card kept coming out. The academic program proved to be the wrong match for me. Looking back I know that there the situation surrounding buying and loosing the house and also getting into the academic program were not built in solid ground, e.g., I should have listen to the High-Priestess card that kept warning me about moving through with what I was doing, but I didn't.

Judgement and the World have being showing up lately, I think that I have had to learned some hard lessons and I am close to completing a Karmic circle perhaps.

I am back in school, taking things slowly and I have embarked in a different path.

The Tower

by Zee
(Oregon)

It's an odd choice, to associate myself with the tower. But the upheaval and rapid change it represents draws me in, because it's familiar. My life hasn't been easy--but I wouldn't change it.

I grew up homeless, never staying in one spot for long. My mother has always been a mercurial woman; loving one minute, and threatening the very next. I was in and out of state homes, constantly changing schools, always on the move away from or towards the next big change.

So I get the tower. I see its cracked foundation, its flaming spire, and I just nod because, yeah, I know that feeling. I'm not afraid of the towers in my life crumbling any more, because each fallen stone is an opportunity or a new path. New life emerges from destruction, just like I did.

The Tower

by Raven Smith

I am a person of change. My nickname is Entropy and I have more than one symbol for chaos tattooed on my body. People have an aversion to change but, change is ALWAYS for the better. Even if it does not seem like it at the time.

The Tower Tarot Card

by Cielle
(Belgium)

I interpret cards from a Jungian point of view.

The tower is comparable to the Biblical Tower of Babel. It represents false structures, "castles in the air" that we build for ourselves that ultimately cannot stand.

I got this card in a spread just as a structure that I had built for myself--a career--came tumbling down due to forces beyond my control.

I recognized my situation in this card and took a lesson from it to stop building facades and constructs for myself in the vain hope of "reaching the top".

The Tower: Build and Rebuild

by Karl
(Reading UK)

When I was 16 I told my family that I was gay.

They turned me out so I decided I'd teach myself to do anything so I never need anothers' help.

I'm like the Tower strong and stable but deal with change with ease.

Now at 40 and just survived life saving surgery i'm once again rebuilding my life.

Strong and true just like the tower.
