TOWER TAROT : WHAT DOES IT SYMBOLIZE
The Tower Tarot is a card that symbolizes destruction or upheaval. In this card, we can see a huge Tower on top of a rocky mountain burning in flames. There is lightning and people are falling out of the huge building to protect themselves from this destruction. This Tower is a symbol of demolition and darkness. The destruction is more of the physical self than the spiritual self. The thunderous lightning symbolizes breaking down old patterns to make way for new ones. It is like a sudden flash of truth which enlightens one and eliminates ignorance and doubt. The tall tower represents our aspirations, ambitions and desires which are established on false structures. The grey clouds represent bad luck or misfortune which rains on everyone without any discrimination.
