#TarotTuesday – The Tower

Welcome to another Tarot Tuesday!

If you are just joining me, let me explain the inspiration to begin these posts. In Texas, and all across the country, Taco Tuesday is a popular day when Tacos are usually 99 cents. So, I had the inspiration, or Angel nudge as I like to think of it, to create a Tarot Tuesday. Each Tuesday I will post a different Tarot card and give its meaning. I pray and ask for the right card that will bring a universal message.

I created a short video to demonstrate how I pull the card for the posts. If you’re interested, here’s a LINK.

Today’s card is from the Major Arcana – The Tower


Keywords: Sudden change, upheaval, chaos, revelation, or awakening.

When the Tower card appears in a Tarot reading, expect the unexpected – massive change, upheaval, destruction and chaos. It may be any event that shakes you to your core, affecting you spiritually, mentally and physically. There’s no escaping it. Change is here to tear things up, create chaos and destroy everything in its path (but trust me, it’s for your Highest Good).

Just when you think you’re safe and comfortable, a Tower moment hits and throws you for a loop. A lightning bolt of clarity and insight cuts through the lies and illusions you have been telling yourself, and now the truth comes to light. Your world may come crashing down before you, in ways you could never have imagined as you realize that you have been building your life on unstable foundations – false assumptions, mistruths, illusions, blatant lies, and so on. Everything you thought to be true has turned on its head. You are now questioning what is real and what is not; what you can rely upon and what you cannot trust. This can be very confusing and disorienting, especially when your core belief systems are challenged. But over time, you will come to see that your original beliefs were built on a false understanding, and your new belief systems are more representative of reality.

The best way forward is to let this structure self-destruct so you can re-build and re-focus. And let’s be real – with a card like the Tower, you have no choice but to surrender to the destruction and chaos, no matter how unwanted or painful. Change on this deep level is hard, but you need to trust that life is happening FOR you, not TO you and this is all for a reason. This destruction will allow new growth to emerge and your soul can evolve.

After a Tower experience, you will grow stronger, wiser and more resilient as you develop a new perspective on life you did not even know existed. These moments are necessary for your spiritual growth and enlightenment, and truth and honesty will bring about a positive change, even if you experience pain and anxiety throughout the process.

Thankfully, the Tower doesn’t always associate with pain and turmoil. If you are highly aware and in tune with your inner guidance system, then this Tarot card can indicate a spiritual awakening or revelation. You may be able to see the cracks forming and take action before the whole structure comes tumbling down. You may create a massive transformation before you reach the point where change is your only option. In its most positive form, the Tower card is your opportunity to break free from the old ways of thinking that have been holding you back.

All I have to say about this card is, WOW!

Thank you for joining me! See you next Tuesday for another inspiring message from the Universe via the Tarot Cards!

As always, I use the Rider-Waite Radiance deck and BiddyTarot.com for interpretations.

  1. I picked the tower, not once but twice for 2020 years theme. It turned out to be very accurate. Seeing it here means to me change is still occuring. It is.

  2. This card seems scary but it’s timely with everything happening in the world. Also, I just made some huge changes in my eating, so I’m hoping this adjustment will bring forth great results. Thanks for the reading, Jan! ❤ xo

    1. I agree, sister. My breath caught in my throat when I saw it. I feel that it represents a larger picture – more of a world picture. But out of the chaos comes change for the better and that is what I am hoping for! Thank you for stopping by! Love you!

      1. This is my interpretation as well. Chaos and disruption have been building for quite some time. I actually see this card and see light at the end of the tunnel. I see transformation and rebuilding. Here’s to holding on to hope! 🙂

  3. I’m surprised how timely this card is. I know there will be more upheaval and more destruction. How can there not be? Long ago I walked away from politics, and though I’m sorrowful for how people treat one another, I am also deeply at peace because I know something beautiful will emerge. Thank you, Jan, for your reading. 💓

  4. The Tower card is one of those you don’t want to find necessarily in a reading… lol. But it also shows that the end of maybe a long born tension or difficult situation is about to fall apart. The Tower card can represent life that acts when we resist. What is meant to be will be! Thank you for this power card… Maybe the card shows the US that finally can rebuild the debris from the last presidency.
