Card #8: The Tower

Upright Meaning

The Tower is a warning of major changes. While the imagery of the Tower is intimidating, the card isn’t a prediction of doom. Instead, it’s a warning to brace yourself for the upcoming chaos.

Most people aren’t happy to see the Tower in their spread. However, it is important to remember that the upheaval caused by the Tower is often necessary for something better. Whatever the case, don’t despair when you see the Tower in a spread. Instead, try to be prepared for what’s to come.

Reversed Meaning

In general, the reversed Tower meaning is focused on putting off or avoiding a crisis. This card tells you that the problem will come to pass eventually and that whatever chaos is looming on the horizon is necessary. Instead of despairing, try to take this time to become more self-reliant.
