Major Arcana: Number 16 (XVI)

Correspondences: Mars, Fire

Keywords: Revelation, sudden change, upheaval, life turned upside down, pressure building to a violent release, rug pulled out from under you, ego shattered, being humbled, shocking insight, collapse of something that was on shaky foundations, clearing away and rebuilding on a strong foundation, drastic change in circumstances, eyes opened, coming back down to earth, the feeling of being struck by a bolt of lightning.

Today’s Tarot Message: Where in your life is the pressure building? Someone or something may be about ready to BLOW. Be alert for the unexpected, a situation may not be as solid as you think. The Tower often brings a time of turmoil, disruption, regular life turned upside down, egos toppled…but its very good at getting rid of what’s not working. Once the dust settles, it’s a good time to start building something real.


Symbols in the card:

Tower: ego, construct, illusory achievement, unstable foundation

Lightning bolt:  sudden realization, revelation, shocking insight, what was hidden is revealed

Falling figures: reversal of fortune or position, being in free fall, unable to control the situation

Falling crowns: shattered ego, loss of position

Black background: darkness, oppression, shadow

Questions to ask yourself:

Where am I feeling pressure in my life?

What information wants to come to light?

What in my life isn’t standing on a strong foundation?

Is there some anger that I need to express? Why aren’t I able to do it?

Is there a way to release some pressure before I have a big blow up?

Feel like the rug has been pulled out from under you?  I have a great Tarot package deal that can help with that…
