The Tower (XVI) (most common modern name) is a Major
Arcana Tarot card that has many different names, symbols,
and meanings. The name and layout in its current form
is a reference to the biblical story of the Tower of Babel,
where God destroys a tower built by mankind to reach Heaven.
Some frequent keywords are:
Chaos ----- Sudden change ----- Impact ----- Hard times
Crisis ----- Revelation ----- Disruption ----- Realizing
Desillusion ----- Crash ----- Burst ----- Uncomfortable
Downfall ----- Ruin ----- Ego blow ----- Explosive tranformation
A tower has just been hit by lightning and is aflame.
The top of the tower is crumbling and falling to the ground
beneath. In some decks, two figures fall from the top
of the tower, in others, the people themselves are on
the ground in flames or are themselves hit by the lightning,
sometimes they are simply onlookers to the fire.
It was commonly referred to as Fire in previous centuries
although Lightning (and similar names) were also commonly
attributed to it. It also sometimes took on more demonic
names such as The Tower (or House) of the Devil and Hell
since it followed The Devil card.
Many differing meanings are attributed to the card:
To some, It symbolises failure, ruin and catastrophe.
To others, the Tower represents the Paradigms constructed
by the Ego, the sum total of all Schema which the mind
constructs to understand the universe. The Tower is struck
by lightning when Reality does not conform to expectation.
Epiphanies, transcendental states of consciousness,
and Kundalini experiences may result.
The Tower further symbolizes that moment in Trance in
which the mind actually changes the direction of the force
of attention from alpha condition (pointed mindward) to
theta condition (pointed imaginal stageward) Theta Condition
(Especially in waking versions of Theta states) is that
moment when information incoming to the ego mind overwhelms
external or sensory stimulus, resulting in what might
otherwise be called a "Vision", or "Halucination."
" Each card in the Major Arcana is a result of the previous.
After the self bondage of The Devil life is self correcting.
Either the querant needs to make changes in their own
life or they will be made for them.
The Querrant may be holding on to false ideas or pretenses;
a new approach to thinking about the problem is needed.
The Querrant is advised to think outside the box. The
Querrant is warned that truth may not oblige schema. It
may be time for the Querrant to re-examine belief structures,
ideaologies, and paradigms they participate in. Card may
also point towards seeking education or higher knowledge.
