When everything seems to be crumbling around your ears, it
can be very difficult to believe that things can and will
get better. But, despite the fact that The Tower represents
disruption or collapse of certain aspects within your life,
these very events can often lead to brand new possibilities.
THIS WEEK'S CARD: THE TOWER
There’s no getting around this one, The Tower is not a
welcome card in a reading yet, at the same time, it does
not warrant feelings of panic or fear. The card can often
indicate an event or period of time that could be
challenging and difficult but, as is so often the case, one
disaster can often lead to a new victory.
For example, an unexpected request for divorce from a
spouse could be devastating, yet I know of people where
such an experience led to them achieving more than they
ever dreamed of because they pursued a different path as a
result. Often, such an incident creates the freedom and
space for a new and greater love to walk into your life.
Many people have experienced bankruptcy, lost their homes
and material possessions only to change tactics and create
great wealth and success. The clearing away of the old
often makes way for the new.
The life lessons we learn from the turbulence indicated by
The Tower help us to rethink and to approach our lives with
a newfound wisdom so that we don’t make the same mistakes
So, if The Tower appears in your reading, then there may be
something in your life that will challenge you or has
challenged you, and it will be up to you how you choose to
get over it and learn from the experience.
Sometimes The Tower may represent you as the person causing
the disruption. Perhaps you need to make choices or
decisions that are important to you but could cause
material or emotional loss. In such a situation, only you
can know whether you are prepared to pay the price.
The Tower can also serve as a warning that a certain choice
or decision could lead to disaster, such as, if you are
considering an extra-marital affair, leaving your job
without a new one to step into, that kind of thing.
Take heed when this card comes up, but don’t panic or get
anxious. Consider your options and choices wisely and if
you can avoid such chaos, great! If chaos is forced upon
you, trust that however challenging it may be, you can find
a way to move forward with your life.
Love and Joy,
P.S. If the Tower describes your current life events, you're
probably feeling really lousy right now. You may have no
idea which way to turn and just feel that your life is

Gaining some insight into your circumstances really helps
to give you hope that there's light at the end of the
tunnel, and that you'll reach it sooner of later.
