The Tower indicates that drastic change is about to take place. Perhaps your whole life is about to come undone or break down. Anything you consider permanent is at risk. It doesn’t matter how solid the foundation is. When The Tower comes up, everything is susceptible.
The card is basically telling you that what’s in the past is in the past and you need to move on. There is no point in sifting through the rubble and trying to salvage things. It presents the opportunity to start anew, so take it. It’s not a hint. Nothing subtle here, folks. If you try to hold on to what is lost, you’ll be living in a world that no longer exists.
It also has the redemption of transformation. All the illusions of what is important to you fade. The smoke and mirrors falling away reveal what is really important. You see things how they really are.
I remember vividly when Hurricane Juan made landfall here in 2003. I’ll never forget the horrible howling of its winds. Sleep was impossible. I learned a few things about preparation for a hurricane. Mostly because nobody was prepared. Including me. Had I done a reading that morning, I probably would’ve drawn this card.
So what do I suggest if it comes up for you? Breathe.
That is probably the best advice to get through The Tower.
