Daily Tarot Draw: 5th July 2017 

The Tower:


“A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.”

~ Helen Keller


What you thought you knew, your beliefs, morals, in fact, the very foundation of you right now is being shaken to the core.

The Tower represents an experience that completely collapses a situation.
It may be a divorce, death of a loved one, financial failure, health problems or job loss- indeed, any event that penetrates to the core of your inner being, affecting you spiritually, mentally and physically. It is often descriptive of a major upheaval, disruption, emergency or crisis, and is likely to bring chaos in the aftermath of such an event.



with such destruction and chaos, there is the chance to rebuild again. As potentially devastating as the Tower can be, this card represents an awakening and is about inspiration, freedom, reality and the release from bondage and struggle.



It is a truth and honesty card that comes as a bolt of lightning to you through a shocking and impactful life event. It represents a necessary experience that forces you to get out of your comfort zone and to grow beyond your present level.




The bottom line is

change is coming whether you like it or not. The secret to surviving the Tower incident is knowing that chaos brings creation and that at the end of it all when you stand on the broken foundations of who you thought you were, you will realise that this will only serve to make you stronger, to create a deeper sense of character.

The truth is, you may never be the same again, but over time you will see, that the crumbling of your Tower will eventually serve a purpose for your greater good.



How is the Tower manifesting in your life today?



Bright blessings,

  1. Love your thoughts on the Tower – I know for many this card is terrifying, but I always think of it as a forest fire. The destruction can be breathtaking, but sometimes we have to clear out the dead wood and old rotten trees to make space for new life.


    1. Hi Meg,

      Yes- a forest fire! As tragic as that is you’re absolutely right, it does clear away the old- and new life is preferable over a stagnant one!
      Admittedly, the Tower used to frighten me, but now I think of it as the kind of friend who has known you all your life, and is not afraid to point out what is not working for you and your life. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this card reminds me of my grandmother: formidable, sometimes terrifying, but wise enough to see what I either can’t, or have chosen to ignore 🙂

      1. I love that – a wise friend that’s not afraid to call you out and tell it to you straight. I have a scary but brilliant grandmother too and this sounds about right 🙂
