The Tower

Feared like Death and the Devil card, the Tower is indeed a difficult one. But it's not all doom and gloom, remember Tarot is all about nuances.

The Tower points at endings, sometimes abrupt, including break-ups. It also often refers to a new living situation and simply moving houses.

The Tower's Meaning & Messages

The Tower is a very powerful Tarot Card that indicates a prediction that is almost impossible to reverse or change: the momentum is so strong, you're gonna have to ride it out and hold on tight...

The Tower always indicates sudden changes, sometimes brutally quick. It often indicates the end of a cycle, the collapse of something that wasn't sustainable and will need to be left behind or rebuilt with completely new foundations.

It can also be the consequences of your actions catching up with you in an unexpected way.


Upright, the Tower is actually more difficult to deal with than reversed, it's one of those cards. It speaks of sudden changes, interruptions, injuries, cancellations, break ups, shocking revelations.

Keywords: (shocking) revelations, accidents, break down, break ups, burn out, collapse, endings, destruction, difficult healing journey.


Reversed, the Tower becomes more of a (last) warning where the momentum is not completely irreversible yet.

Keywords: warnings, shadow work, disaster averted, last chance, lack of control, major revelations.
